WebAnchor provides inexpensive Pakistani web hosting packages underpinned by the values of honesty, integrity, and dedication to customer service.

Overview

webanchor main

Web Anchor is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.

Founded in 2010, Web Anchor is a Pakistani hosting service that deals in domains, Linux and Windows web hosting, VPS, web development, and reseller hosting packages.

WebAnchor’s servers are housed in secure facilities in the U.S.A., Pakistan, and France. Its website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

WebAnchor

The popular cPanel and WHM control panels provide features and tools to help you build and manage your websites, emails, and web space. Here are some of those features:

  • Domains
  • One-click app installer
  • SSL Certificates
  • MySQL databases
  • Webmail
  • Virus & spam protection
  • HTML5/CSS3

Your control panel offers the ability to install more than 300 apps (including popular CMS software such as Joomla, WordPress, and Drupal) with a single click. So, within minutes of signing up, you can set up a functional website and secure it with SSL, all without any special technical knowledge.

To some extent, you can let WebAnchor worry about your website’s availability and continuity via its weekly backups that are not only for shared hosting customers. VPS users also enjoy a weekly snapshot service. However, these backups are not guaranteed, so it’s a good idea to trigger your own backups from the control panel once your website is up and running.

If you’d like to set up a virtualization environment for your apps, you might consider one of WebAnchor’s inexpensive VPS or dedicated servers which come with dedicated IPs. You can choose your server location and set the number of cores, transfer bandwidth, and operating system to match your needs. Managed support is available.

Pricing and Support

Web Anchor’s hosting plans are so cheap that they might make a garage sale look expensive. But you still get some good features plus a free .com/.net domain and unlimited FTP. The initial setup is free, but it does take four days to deploy a server.

All shared hosting plans include a 30-day money back guarantee that should give you enough time to decide if you’re in or out, and you can pay by credit card, Mobicash, or bank transfers.

WebAnchor’s all-year-round customer support team comes across as a knowledgeable and professional, and able to troubleshoot your hosting problems in no time. What’s more, for self-support purposes, this provider’s knowledge base contains 100+ articles and guides on a range of topics including cPanel, VPS, web hosting, and security.
