Based in South Korea, Woobi.kr is a trusted hosting service with a history of providing local and international customers with unlimited web hosting, domains, customizable VPS, and SSL. Its hosting packages are cheap and loaded with many features.
Features and Ease of Use
Free or paid, the Woobi.kr shared Linux hosting plans come with a number of features that help you start your website project quickly:
- Domestic registration, forwarding, parking

Woobi.kr provides a six-month free basic web hosting service to individual customers. This plan includes the easy-to-use MC Homepage builder and a number of ready-to-use scripts such as WordPress, Textcube, XpressEngine. With a few clicks, a user can deploy and customize any of the supported apps. Advanced users and programmers also have access to various programming languages such as Python, Perl, GCC, and PHP plus its various libraries.
When it comes to user security, Woobi.kr isn’t sleeping on the job. Servers are hardened and systems monitored 24/7. Customers also enjoy daily/weekly website and database backups regardless of their plans, so there’s little to worry about data loss.
Each hosting account is powered by Linux and connected to SSD storage which is significantly faster than the traditional HDD, so you can expect pages to load quickly. Virtual server hosting runs on Red Hat Linux though there is the option to install a custom OS. Fast and reliable, its hosting packages can meet the needs of starters, medium-size enterprises, and even large organizations.
At first I had a hard time navigating Woobi.kr, but I realized my Adobe Flash player wasn’t working. The moment I fixed it, I was able to check out different sections including FAQs, pricing, hosting guides, and nice demos of websites built using the MC builder.
Pricing and Support
Woobi.kr packages are not only cheap, but are loaded with features that cut across the board. When you scale up, you get more storage, emails, and a greater monthly bandwidth to meet your growing traffic needs. Shared hosting packages are deployed instantly the moment you pay while VPS deployment takes up to 24 hours. Hosting prices include a one-time setup fee, which honestly I wouldn’t mind paying considering how cheap and feature-rich its packages are. Bank transfer and credit cards are accepted.
With a team that embodies the values of hard work and diligence, Woobi.kr onsite technicians seem to be able to resolve hosting issues promptly. Live operators are available by telephone though you can also send them an email along with your inquiries or request for help. I hope Woobi.kr introduces live chat support for local and international customers as support is only in Korean at the moment.
