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 bandwidth that exceeds 25GB to ensure fast internet connections. This has given the vendor a high reputation among internet professionals; whether novice webmasters or IT gurus.
It’s worth noting that, although the vendor licenses R1Soft server backup manager for their hosting solutions, none of the plans include backup services. The hosting company advises customers to create backups for their own websites to avoid data loss in the event of a disaster.
Pricing and Support
WebinHost hosting prices compare unfavorably with other vendors in the same niche. They are considered to be 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 a 98.0% uptime guarantee. The vendor also 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 the WebinHost customer desk via telephone, live chat, contact form, or ticketing system. That said, it does have 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 customers’ queries.
The WebinHost website has a pretty comprehensive knowledge base with useful tutorials and articles.
