Features and Ease of Use
Webblaze Hosting offers three paid managed shared hosting packages – Cadet, Pilot, and Officer. Some standard features include:
- SSD storage
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- Free website builder
- LiteSpeed Web Server
- Daily backups
- PHP and MySQL support
- DDoS and CageFS protection
As the name suggests, the Cadet plan is suitable for beginners. It comes with 10 GB of bandwidth, 1 GB of SSD disk space, one email account, and you can host one website.
The Pilot plan increases these resources for startups to 200 GB of bandwidth, 10 GB of SSD disk space, ten email accounts, and an unlimited number of websites.
The Officer plan (intended for small to medium businesses) extends these resources further to 300 GB of bandwidth, 30 GB of SSD storage, unlimited email accounts, and unlimited hosted websites.
With cPanel, you can easily manage different aspects of your website from a single dashboard, thanks to its intuitive and user-friendly interface. Webblaze Hosting allows you to install your favorite CMS apps and scripts (e.g., WordPress, Joomla!, and Drupal) with the Softaculous one-click application installer.
Webblaze Hosting has a free website building tool with its paid subscriptions that you can use to create your website from scratch.
You also get some security features for free with its paid plans such as an SSL certificate, daily backups (to safeguard your data), and DDoS/CageFS protection (against hackers and malware).
This web host also provides a free shared hosting plan (Freebies) that only includes 400 MB of disk space, 4 GB of bandwidth, and one hosted website.
While Webblaze Hosting has some decent features with its packages, they’re pretty basic. That’s why I suggest you check out our top web hosting comparison to explore more suitable options.
Pricing and Support
Given its useful features and freebies, Webblaze Hosting’s shared hosting plans are very affordable. You can choose to be billed monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually, biennially, or triennially.
You also get a free .xyz domain name with the Pilot, and Officer plans when you subscribe annually. Webblaze offers a 30-day money-back guarantee with its web hosting services.
There is a small knowledgebase and FAQ section on the website, but they don’t cover many important topics.
That said, I sent an email to its support team with some further questions and received a response promptly.
You can also get in touch with the support team by ticket or phone. Unfortunately, Webblaze Hosting doesn’t have a live chat option.
