Also, don’t forget “20% VAT” – if you turn this option on at the top of the main page, you’ll be able to see the full price, which is higher. Keep that in mind.

  • However, the provider was not ranked highly in our chart for 2018 – 4.6 and appeared on the 118th position).
  • Its performance wasn’t bad but it wasn’t very impressive either since we started monitoring (June 2018) till December 2018, especially if you take the number of domains hosted into consideration. They had only one serious case of downtime in December (97.729%), other cases were not lower than 99.9%; yet, its general downtime chart can’t be called perfect.
  • Their response time was slower than the average, and some of the Shared IPs wasn’t responding for many hours (the data for the last 30 days, as of January 4, 2019).
  • They lost a number of domains and reduced the number of Shared IPs throughout the summer, however, since then and till December not much changed.
