ISPServer is a very reliable company that has been providing good hosting since 1997. The company is based in Russia, and most of their site is in Russian, which can make it difficult to understand. They do have an English option, but even then it isn’t always perfectly clear what is going on. That being said, however, their hosting actually seems to be quite good. They offer a variety of cloud hosting options, as well as VPS and dedicated servers. The cloud hosting appears to be designed to replace what would normally be offered under a shared server option. This is typically a good thing because it gives you more reliability for close to the same price that you would pay for shared hosting. They have a wide range of different features to choose from, and can help you get up and running right away. While based in Russia, they do have several other data centers in Europe, the US and other locations so they can easily serve customers in almost any part of the world.
Uptime & Reliability
Difficult to identify the reliability
Most of the information about this company provided by customers on social media and other locations is in Russian, so that makes it hard to learn more about it. The company itself doesn’t really go into much detail about the reliability of their hosting. The fact that they have been around since 1997, and there aren’t any obvious complaints about the uptime of their servers, however, does seem to indicate that they are doing a good job.
Plenty of services to meet almost any need
This company offers a wide range of different services that will surely be able to meet the needs of almost any type of site. They have good hosting packages put together, which is what the vast majority of customers will end up needing. In addition, they offer things like collocation services, SSL certificates, DDOS protection, DNS hosting and much more. While their primary goal does appear to be providing quality hosting to all their customers, this company can really be an overall tech partner because of the fact that they handle these types of extra services.
24/7 technical support
There is not really a lot of information on their page about their support services. They do have 24/7 technical support and a phone number to call, but other than that I can’t really find too many details. This could be an issue with their translations into English, but it is difficult to find anything on this on their website. Also, they don’t seem to offer much in the way of self-help options.
Fair pricing for most hosting options
From what I can tell, the prices from this company are fairly standard. Their main page lists the prices in Russia’s currency, which I’m not familiar with. You can switch it to Euro’s though, and the prices there didn’t seem to be too expensive. For the entry level cloud hosting services, the prices are somewhat higher than you would expect to pay for traditional shared hosting. You will get better service for it though, so it is not a bad trade off. If you’re just looking for the cheapest hosting though, you can likely find a better deal with another company.
Quality hosting focused on a Russian market
Overall this company seems to do a very good job, and they have been around a long time so they clearly know what they are doing. While they do offer some options for English speaking customers, their primary focus is clearly the Russian market. For those who speak Russian, however, this may be a great company to consider. Pros:
- Multiple data centers around the world
- Lots of hosting options for sites of all levels
- Very well established company
- Focused on Russian market
- Entry level hosting is a bit expensive
