Currently, they have 5 shared hosting plans on offer. They are one of the few providers that offer that much.
The following payment plans can be chosen: monthly, 3 and 6 months, 1 and 2 years.
All the other plans are recommended to be bought on a 36-month basis as the prices for them are the cheapest (see in the table above).
Promo prices for all plans (except for Mini) are only for the initial term and their availability is better to be checked on the website directly.
Avahost provides various hosting options:
- and VPS servers.
lso, they offer domain registration and assist with website creation and promotion.
It seems that they act on franchise principle and do not fully control the situation, up to the fact that visually identical (with translated texts) avahost.ua and avahost.ru talk about their office in Belize. So feedbacks differ from “Great!” to “Site lies down for a month, support does not answer either by phone or by email.”
Instant Technical Live Support: No
Support is limited to emails and customer support ticket-system.
They have no physical address apart from the post box number.
There is a live chat on the website, however, it is unclear how it works. We tried to contact it several times, last time on Monday at 8:00 GMT. We waited for half an hour and there was no response. Either they work by in different time zone, or they just don’t answer as we tried before with the same result.
Report for 2018
- HRank: 3.7, #164 in 2018. Not the best performance results.
- The provider’s uptime was in 99-100% range most of the monitoring period, however, there were several cases of 97%, 98% and ~70% uptime that affected the overall rank of the provider negatively.
- Its response time was in the 600-700ms range, closer to 700ms by the end of the year.
- A very distinct decreasing trend can be seen with regard to both websites and Shared IPs.
