With WebinHost, client’s websites are hosted on fast CloudLinux hosting platforms housed in multiple data centers located across Brazil and the U.S. The latest features in these data centers include multiple UPS systems, FM-200 fire suppression system, diesel backup generators, and 24/7/365 onsite management team. Thus, the hosting firm can offer a highly secured and reliable web hosting services.
Network infrastructure in these data centers is powered by multiple OC-12 internet connections that connect over 30,000 servers. The servers come with large monthly bandwidths that exceed 25GB to ensure fast internet connections. This has given the vendor a high reputation among internet professionals; whether it’s novice webmasters or IT gurus.
It is worth noting that, although the vendor’s hosting solutions are licensed to use R1Soft server backup manager, none of the solutions include backup services. With that in mind, the hosting company advises customers to make backups for their own websites to avoid loss of data in the event of a disaster.
Pricing and Support
WebinHost hosting prices compare unfavorably with other vendors in the same niche. And they are expensive, especially for small scale business owners. However, its hosting plans come with flexible monthly billing cycles. Prices are listed in Brazilian real.
WebinHost advertises a 99.95% uptime guarantee for WordPress and cloud hosting solutions. But its shared web hosting solutions come with only 98.0% uptime guarantee. Nonetheless, the vendor does not seem to offer any uptime for its VPS, dedicated servers, and reseller hosting solutions. Moreover, none of this company’s hosting solutions seem to have a refund policy.
You can contact WebinHost customer desk via telephone, live chat, contact form or ticketing system. That said, it has an email address but I had to go to their Facebook account to find it. The vendor promises to offer round the clock customer service but on the contrary, their reps take days before they can respond to their customers’ queries.
The WebinHost website has a pretty comprehensive knowledge base with quite useful tutorials and articles.
