CIShost is a Russian web hosting company based in Moscow focused on providing high quality, low cost web hosting for professionals.
CIShost offers a wide range of hosting plans, including shared, VPS, and dedicated server hosting, plus domain registration services. Their focus is on providing web hosting for Russian-speaking individuals and businesses, especially for those targeting a mainly Russian or European audience.
CIShost offers six levels of shared hosting plans, six levels of VPS hosting plans, and three levels of dedicated server hosting plans. They also have four different hosting reseller plans.
All of their plans include unlimited bandwidth, unlimited databases and email accounts, and (except for the first level of shared hosting) unlimited domains. The shared hosting plan levels are based on the amount of disk space you need, starting at 50MB and going all the way up to 10GB. Other standard features include daily backups, mailing lists, visitor statistics, and SSL support. You can also choose to purchase a dedicated IP addresses as an add-on to any plan.
The VPS plans are based on the CPU and amount of RAM and disk space available. Depending on whether you choose a datacenter in France or Russia, different features will be available, such as DDoS protection. You can also choose which OS you'd like to install: Debian, CentOS, Ubuntu, FreeBSD, Fedora, ArchLinux — or you can provide your own OS. You get root access and can setup the server from scratch, installing whatever software you need.
Dedicated servers can be set up within 5 to 20 minutes, with specific features depending on the server you choose.
CIShost has four datacenters located in Moscow, Germany, France, and North America.
While most companies who provide shared hosting don't share details about their normal server capacity, CIShost publicly promises not to place more than one thousand accounts on any one server.
Support is available via support ticket, email, Skype, or phone (based in Russia). Support is only available in Russian (not English). And it is available from 9 am to 7 pm Moscow time.
Shared hosting accounts all include daily backups. The data centers in France and North America also have DDoS protection, while the German and Russian datacenters do not.
CIShost accepts payment via many different methods. You can make payment via major credit card, Paypal, Bitcoin, bank transfer, and more.
As the largest web hosting provider in Moscow, CIShost is ideal for any Russian-speaking individual or business with a mainly Russian or European audience. However, they do seem to be geared more towards users who has some experience with the technical side of web hosting, not complete beginners. Their huge variety of hosting plans, plus the range of payment methods they accept, ensures that they'll have a plan to fit whatever your hosting needs may be.

Billing is not working properly. I'm now trying to prolong my hosting, but the billing server is down. Support is not online after 6 pm, same at weekends.
Of course, this is a cheap hosting provider, but anyway, uptime and support are very important for me. The main advantage of the cishost is ISP control panel, which is pretty simple and comfortable. Again, billing panel is great, but bill.cishost. Ru is down sometimes.
Excellent price and speed of VDS servers in France, because of SSD storage. Helped to install minecraft server for my hobby without any additional price. So If you want to have good hosting without any problems - use CIShost.
I have not tried virtual hosting, so cannot write anything about it. Have a nice day!
