With data centers located in the U.S. as well as India, Webhobs provides the ability to have shared, VPS, cloud, or reseller hosting with a global reach.

Overview

Webhobs

Webhobs was founded in January 2015 with the goal of providing a range of hosting solutions for different budgets and with a global reach. As such, they have data centers strategically located in both India and in the U.S. (Texas). In line with their global outlook, they provide currency support for AUD, CAD, CNY, EUR, GBP, INR, RUB, TRY, USD, and MYR.

Features and Ease of Use

Webhobs provide almost all the services you would need to successfully host and manage your website with a one-stop solution. These include:

  • Domain registration
  • Domain transfer
  • Backups through CodeGuard
  • Email hosting

Unfortunately, they don’t offer any SSL certificates.

Webhobs

These are some of the more unique features of Webhobs:

  • Website Builders: You can use either the Weebly or Impress.ly website builders to create your website. These are very easy to use and fantastic web building tools.
  • Security: Webhobs takes security very seriously and either provide security services with their VPS (especially the managed) plans or give clients the choice to include a Security Suite in their packages for shared hosting.
  • Instant Scaling: A great feature for growing businesses is to add more resources at the click of a button so that you don’t run into uptime or load problems while your website is live.

The range of products available at Webhobs means that the ease of use of using their platform is variable. With their WordPress hosting, you will have the content management system pre-installed and you can just start building and managing your site with it. With a VPS solution, you will need to be a bit more hands-on, unless you go for a managed option. Signup is also very simple with almost no upsells and a quick account creation but it can be a bit confusing when transferring or buying a domain.

Pricing and Support

There are plenty of hosting options and pricing packages available at Webhobs. You should check the individual plan to see if they offer a money back guarantee; they generally don’t give this guarantee except with their dedicated server plans. However, you can upgrade plans from one to the other or cancel them at any time. Almost all plans allow you to choose from monthly to triennial billing. Here is an overview of their plans:

  • Shared Hosting:
    • Linux: Four plans that vary in the number of domains (single to unlimited), storage (1 GB to unlimited), data transfer (10 GB to unlimited), and email accounts (25 to unlimited).
    • Windows: Currently not available anymore, but should return in time.
    • WordPress: Four plans that vary in WordPress installations (single to 5), CPU cores (dual to hexacore), storage (5 GB to 40 GB), and RAM (2 GB to 6 GB).
  • VPS Hosting:
    • Linux KVM VPS: Four plans that vary in CPU cores (2 to 4), RAM (2 GB to 8 GB), storage (20 GB to 120 GB), bandwidth (1 TB to 2 TB), and up to 1 additional IP.
    • Dedicated: Windows and Linux each have four plans that vary in the model of Intel CPU, RAM (4 GB to 28 GB), and bandwidth (1 TB to 15 TB). All plans come with 1 TB of storage (2 TB max for Windows) and 2 free IPs.
    • Managed server: Very similar to the above, but with 24/7 server management.

There are reseller hosting plans for agencies although these have a few restricted countries. They also provide cloud hosting packages.

Webhobs provide technical, billing, or sales support through dedicated email addresses or phone lines. Unfortunately, there is no live chat support. Although the technical support staff’s English is not always perfect, they are more than helpful and friendly throughout all interactions. You can wait a few minutes to get through though.
