Professional Sri Lankan website design and development company Webivox International (Pvt) Ltd is located in the country’s capital, Colombo. Since its founding in 2009, it has accumulated more than 1,000 customers in 10+ countries, which it serves from servers in the United States.
Webivox’s English-language website advertises shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS, domain registration, internet marketing, software development, web design, and SSL certificates.
Features and Ease of Use
Webivox offers two types of shared hosting, Unlimited and Limited, with the latter being limited in terms of storage space.
The hosting features are:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- One to unlimited domains
- Unlimited bandwidth
- 1 GB to unlimited disk space
- Automatic backups
Since server management can be disconcerting unless you’re a professional, Webivox provides the popular and easy-to-use cPanel control panel that makes it easy to manage your website and email accounts. The incorporated auto-installer helps you install popular applications — such as WordPress, Magento, or Joomla — with just one click.
At the other end of the expertise spectrum, you can choose the PHP version to suit your applications’ requirements or your programming needs. You get Zend Guard to protect your PHP code, and Zend Optimizer to make it run faster.
Back at the control panel, you get hotlink protection, and you can deny specific country IP addresses from accessing your website.
Pricing and Support
Webivox offers low-price shared hosting plans. Still, you might want to pay more for the top-tier plan that includes a PositiveSSL certificate, premium support, and a dedicated IP address. Lower plans provide a Let’s Encrypt certificate and no dedicated IP.
Although you have to make a minimum annual commitment, the generous 45-day money-back guarantee means you get more than six weeks to change your mind. Pay by PayPal, bank transfer, credit/debit card, mCash, or eZ Cash.
If the self-support knowledge base doesn’t answer all your questions, you can contact the customer support team via telephone, ticket, live chat, or email. After experiencing a long wait for live chat, I was pleased to receive a (brief) response to my email within a few minutes:
