A horribly ran company that mostly hosts hackers and phishing websites

1.0
Hostkey is the #1 hosting company for Russian hackers and spammers. As I write this we have been reporting one of their customers for over a month sending out 50+ spams a day - a massive phishing operation. Even with plenty of pro...Read Moreof they refuse to do anything about the abuse which is why every time we track one of these scams down it ends up on Hostkey. Their abuse department clearly doesn't even exist. It's so bad that I purchased a server for a month on their network to DDOS one of their clients until the spam attacks stop. If you ever even think of sending email from a server with this company I guarantee many of their subnets are blocked and your email won't ever reach it's destination.

NEVER TRUST A RUSSIAN HOSTING COMPANY.

Dear Robert,

we strictly stick to our abuse and complaint procedure. We terminate client's services if they break the agreement's terms. It takes time to validate proofs, and the evidence must be strong. We strongly advise you ...Read Moreto make a report to the police. We suspend the client's services in a couple of hours if Dutch police send us an official requirement.

We are sorry to hear that you used our services in the fashion that clearly contradicts our Terms of Service. It will be investigated further.

HOSTKEY is a Dutch hosting provider. Our data centers are located in the Netherlands, the USA, and Russia.

Thank you for your cooperation. HOSTKEY team.

Horrible Support

Don't let yourself fool into their services from the "Netherlands" umbrella or their nice landing page. If you ever need support (and if you ever rented a server you'll know that it is not a question of IF, but WHEN) then you're o...Read Moreut of luck. The whole show is run from Russia (even if your server is located in NL) and the support team has a defensive "CANNOT" and "pay extra for this" attitude rather than solving issues in your best interest. Can not recommend.Less

We are sorry to hear that you were left dissatisfied with the cooperation with HOSTKEY. The priority of our company is to provide quality service to our clients.

Uptime & Reliability

Hosting Environment is Very Stable

The datacenters used by Hostkey are state-of-the-art and have redundant power, network connections, cooling systems, and more. Hostkey also uses primarily name brand hardware to help avoid problems caused by faulty equipment. They don’t have an uptime guarantee, but for most people that will not be needed. If you really require the best uptime, they offer DDoS protection, server load balancing, and colocation options to help limit the risk of any type of problems.

Features

Lots of Features to Meet Your Needs

Hostkey offers a variety of features to meet the needs of their customers. Their hosting solutions are all focused on busier sites, and they don’t have any shared hosting options. Their VPS solutions come in a variety of packages, all of which will provide customers with the level of control they need at prices they can afford. You can choose from 1-4CPU cores, 1-8 gigs of RAM, 20 to 80 gigs of disk space (all on solid state drives), and much more.

If you need something even more powerful, you can move up to the dedicated servers. They have a variety of options here too, primarily from Dell. Some of the dedicated servers are pre-made and ready to go, and others you can have custom built to meet your exact needs. All the different options will provide you with root access and the ability to use the servers for just about anything you would like.

Support

Great Tech Support 24/7

If you ever run into any type of issue with your hosting or any of the other features they offer, the technical support team will be there to help you get through it right away. They are staffed 24/7 and can easily take a look at your system and take action fix it. They also have a helpful FAQ and knowledge base that you can read if you would like to handle any issues on your own.

Pricing

Reasonable Prices at All Levels

The prices are all right in line with what you would expect based on the package features that you need. The VPS solutions start at €5 per month, and can go as high as €30 per month for the base options. You can adjust what you need, which will change the price. Dedicated servers start at €50 per month, and can go up to €307 per month for the base packages, and up further based on any additional options you want added in.

They also have ‘sale servers’ that change rapidly based on what is available. These are dedicated servers that you can get for significantly less than normal. Sometimes the servers may have slightly out of date hardware, or they are discounted for some other reason. Those who don’t need the best, but still want great control over their servers will definitely want to look into these options.

User Friendly

Focused on Higher End Users

This is one of those companies that focuses their services primarily on the higher end users. Those who already have experience running websites and other related services. This makes the systems slightly more complicated than an entry level customer might be used to. Despite that, however, everything is set up properly so that it can be figured out easily and run without issues. Their support teams are also available 24/7 so you can get help if you have any questions or concerns.

Summary

Great Hosting Option in Europe & Russia

If you need good hosting in Europe or Russia, and you want something strong like a VPS or dedicated server, this is a company you should consider. They have a strong reputation for quality, and have been growing for years. Just keep in mind that they aren’t likely for the entry level user and you should have a great experience.

Pros:

  • Lots of Services
  • DDoS Protection Available
  • Reasonable Prices

Cons:

  • No Shared Hosting
  • Some Services are Overly Complex
