TutHost opened for business in June of 2004 and have done a good job at steadily building up their client base over the years. They are based in the Ukraine and offer shared hosting, VPS and dedicated servers. They also provide a nice website builder, access to a content delivery network, online broadcasting options, server management, SSL certificates and more.
The company offers their site in both Ukrainian and English, though their English version is a little challenging to read. You can figure out what they are saying though, so that is nice. The company is quite honest, providing you with accurate information and estimates on things like uptime and reliability. They also provide a lot of information to the users, which is very nice.
Uptime & Reliability
Nice and Stable Services
The hosting with this company is going to be quite stable. They have been working hard to ensure their data center has redundant power and network connections, and they also invest to get high quality servers that are made for quality hosting. All this combines to help reduce the risk of downtime. They come right out and say that they can’t provide 100% uptime, but that they will do everything they can to provide as stable an environment as possible.
Choosing a Package Gets Complicated
This company offers their potential customers a large number of different hosting packages to choose from. In some ways this is very nice since you will be able to find the solution you need without over paying for something you don’t want. On the other hand, with so many choices it can get overly complicated, which is a problem for newer webmasters.
The shared hosting comes in normal shared hosting, ‘gigabyte hosting’ for larger customers, email hosting, VIP hosting, hosting for Joomla and Hosting for WordPress. Each of these areas has five different packages to choose from, so you can really see how it will get overwhelming after a time. Looking just at the features of all the hosting packages though, they do offer a lot of nice options. You can see them all in a list for each package, which is a nice formatting option.
Whether you’re looking for shared hosting, VPS or dedicated solutions, this company has a lot to offer. Just make sure you take your time and look through all the different packages available to find the perfect one for your specific situation.
Active Tech Support
The tech support team is there to help you with any type of issues that you may be having. They provide a phone number, support page and more to ensure you are getting what you need, when you need it. They also offer a lot of documentation and other information to help you learn more about hosting and how to properly manage a site. This can be very helpful, especially for customers who don’t have a lot of experience in this area.
The prices with this company are not the lowest or highest that I have seen. They do offer a lot of pricing options with discounts for paying 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years or 3 years in advance. The discount goes up the further in advance you pay your bill. Another nice thing about this company is that they let you choose which currency you want to pay them in. You can pay in US dollars, Ukrainian currency or Russian currency. They also give you an approximate conversion rate between them, which makes paying a lot easier.
Nice Hosting in the Ukraine
If you are looking to get hosting in the Ukraine or the surrounding region, this is a nice company to consider. They have a lot of nice options to look through and just about everyone will be able to find a solution that meets their needs in features and is at a price they can afford.
