Been hosting with Webair for several years and have been extremely happy with the service and support. Highly recommended!
I have been hosting with Webair for years now. They have amazing support on the higher plans, dedicated, complex, and cloud offers. I believe the lower / starting plans are unmanaged. Finding a good host is tough, these guys care and give personalized service and support that has helped my company grow throughout the years. Big recommendation and thumbs yup to the guys at webair.com! Keep up the good work!
I'm not one for reviews but I've been with Webair for quite sometime and feel I owe it to them. I currently have a few dedicated servers and a cloud server through Webair and I couldn't be happier. Webair is quite different then other hosts I've had in the past, their tech's really care about the end user. Recently my page kept timing out so I thought it was from the server but it turns out it was just my poorly written code. However, Webair jumped in and advised me how to fix it. I have never had a host tell me how to fix my code issues (It was a simple line that needed to be adjusted). Regardless, I feel most hosts would tell you to find a developer but Webair really goes the extra step to help you.
A robust hosting option with many tiers of plans, Webair’s tools are built to keep webmasters happy. They offer extensive support, maximum security, and guarantee 100 percent uptime. Since 1996, the company has offered hosting solutions for every size of business.
Webair’s ServerGenius™ support includes industry professionals trained to help you on every level. Opening a support ticket within your control panel is the preferred method of contact because it can be tracked and escalated. You may also access live chat support from your control panel. Webair also has toll-free phone support available 24/7.
With all accounts, Webair offers EZPanel. The comprehensive control panel allows access to support, billing, account management, a client discussion forum, and domain management. All servers include PHP (PHP HyperText Preprocessor) support, with many pre-installed extensions and full Python support. All plans also allow for free add-on root access and a full mail server with a Web-based control panel.
Webair’s Dedicated Server Hosting includes seven managed hosting plans with a physical server.
Webair offers three plans. Each includes dual redundant gigabit load balancers, internal and external Cisco gigabit switches, private VLAN with 27 IP Addresses, and Webair cloud storage.
*When hosts describe anything as “unlimited,” it is typically boundless except in cases of abuse. A user may be charged a penalty or be required to subscribe to a more robust package if they are overburdening the servers.
Webair offers three VPS plans.
VSYS is a proprietary, shared hosting platform with five plan types.
Webair offers a range of add-ons available with all hosting plans.
With so many plans, each with customizable options, you must clearly identify your needs to find the right plan. You may need to contact Webair’s customer service team to help figure out what plan fits your business. Still, their reputation for quality customer support and the wide variety of options available are two strong reasons to give Webair a serious look.
Phone, email, and chat support are offered on a 24/7 basis with every hosting plan. Support response time appears to be very prompt. When we contacted a representative using the chat option the response time was less than one minute. In addition, a knowledge base is available with many articles and tutorials that address common problems.
Webair offers completely scalable plans. With their Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) plan you can scale plan resources up or down as the demands of your application change.
If you’re having trouble deciding a simple-to-use solution finding tool is available. Just answer a couple of simple questions about your needs and wishes, and a plan will be recommended for you along with a link to read more details about that specific plan.
With all but the most basic plans automatic backup of your files and folders is included. Coupled with the distributed data center structure offered by Webair your website or application will be well protected.
There are four data centers located around the world to provide redundancy and rapid delivery of information. The data centers are located strategically in New York, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, and Montreal.
100% uptime can be guaranteed by positioning the data centers at geographically dispersed locations, and equipping each data center with enough firepower to handle all network traffic in a pinch. This impressive data center network is further backed up by strategic partnerships with peer providers.
The smallest plan available is very affordable, and a great option for a single personal project or business website.
With all but the most basic plans, SSL certificates can be added on. With easy installation of several popular content management systems and e-commerce options available, hosting an e-commerce site is a definite possibility.
Easy installation of eight popular applications is supported. Available content management systems include WordPress, Drupal, Movable Type, and Joomla. Magento, a premier e-commerce platform, is available. Additional applications available for installation include SugarCRM, Asterisk, and OpenVPN.
With Webair, you’re getting a higher grade of hosting. For instance, every plan is hosted in a dedicated virtual environment, not a shared server environment. So you are subject to greater constraints, but the tradeoff is that your site will be hosted on a world-class network with much greater performance and security at a price competitive with other entry-level hosting plans.
All plans come with solid-state drive (SSD) storage. Meaning your data will be more secure and more rapidly accessible than if it were stored on industry-standard mechanical hard disk drives (HDD).
In addition to offering hosting, Webair also offers security services including managed firewalls and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) mitigation along with 24/7 network monitoring. If you have an existing server network you’re worried about these services will go a long way toward protecting those valuable assets.
Domains can be registered through a partner service, Domain Pal, at very competitive rates.
The basic plans only allow for deployment of a single website. If you want to host multiple websites you’ll need to look at some of the upgraded plans or purchase multiple basic plans.
Webair offers a proprietary control panel called ezpanel. You can test-drive ezpanel without purchasing any products by registering for a free account. We have to say, it’s one of the most intuitive control panels we’ve seen.
For the majority of plans, billing is done via an automated payment system on a monthly basis. This is different from many hosting providers who require you to pay for a much longer period at initial sign-up and at each renewal. You can even pay by check, money order, or PayPal if you prefer by making special arrangements with the billing department.
Yes. FTP is supported and step-by-step setup instructions are available in the Knowledge Base.
Email accounts are available as an add-on to any hosting plan.
