Webabi started life in 1994 as computer sales and maintenance company Karbeyaz Web Services. In 2001, the company established Webabi to provide web hosting services in Turkey. This provider’s servers are located in Istanbul, and its website is in Turkish.
Features and Ease of Use
Webabi offers three shared hosting plans with varying amounts of storage, bandwidth, email accounts, and the number of hosted websites. Shared hosting customers will enjoy the following features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Daily backups
- Either 100 MB, 500 MB or 1000 MB disk space
The storage space isn’t very generous; it’s enough for basic business websites but is too limited for substantial e-commerce companies.
Web hosting and development beginners benefit from one-click application installation via the cPanel control panel and a free website builder. From a programming perspective, there is PHP and Perl support, plus phpMyAdmin to manage MySQL databases.
I particularly like the cloud hosting technology used by the shared servers. It provides security and stability so that the failure of a single physical server won’t adversely affect your website.
Pricing and Support
Webabi offers affordable web hosting, with low-cost shared server plans, and customers can scale up simply by purchasing a higher plan.
This provider doesn’t do free domain registration so the cost of your chosen domain will be added at the checkout. There is also no free SSL certificate, but “SSL certificate support” is listed as a feature of the hosting plans.
There is no monthly billing option, so you have to make an annual commitment as a minimum. This need not worry you too much since the 30-day money back guarantee gives you a little leeway to decide if this is the right host for you.
Webabi’s 24/7 customer support can be accessed via telephone and email, but there is no ticket system and no live chat despite there being a live chat button at the top of each page. Unfortunately, I received no reply to my exploratory email, but there is a reasonably comprehensive knowledge base that should help you support yourself.
