It supports Ubuntu, Debian, Oracle, Alpine, ArchLinux, CentOS, Fedora, Gentoo, and OpenSUSE operating systems. You can use any of them on your server. Be aware, though, that Webdock provides its own custom-built control panel, which isn’t bad since it is built to work seamlessly with its servers. If you don’t like it, you can also use a 3rd party control panel like Runcloud, Gridpane, Serverpilot and more.
The company supports different selectable versions of PHP. You can also select between Apache and Nginx web servers. For those that want to use CMSes and other web applications, it provides automatic installations for CMSes that run on Linux like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and Concrete5.
Webdock offers easy connection to Cloudflare to help deliver the result of your website contents to your visitors in a faster manner. That also provides more security and with it is Webdock’s multiple tiers of DDoS protection.
Furthermore, it offers a free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate to enable secure communications on your website and improve SEO. Also, it provides SSH access that encrypts the transfer of data and allows you to access your account securely when using a remote computer.
You should know that the company uses SSD storage and ZFS software, which also helps with data storage and protection.
It offers free email forwarding with improMX to easily receive mails on your domain and free transactional emailing with Postmark to keep track of emails.
Finally, Webdock offers customizable solutions for clients whose hosting needs are different from the plans it offers.
