Come sit by the fire and let me tell you
a little bit about our scrappy little company ...

Webdock is based in the very central part of Denmark on the picturesque island of Funen. It’s an awesomely well-connected location and we are fortunate to have moved into a beautiful countryside manor house where we plan to grow for years to come.

Here, under the ever-vigilant eye of our "Webdog" Mikkel, we are building our very own Datacenter. This will be a tremendous change for the company as a whole and will allow us to expand into many avenues of Cloud services, and not just stay as a pure VPS company.

If you are in the neighborhood - please stop by for a cup of coffee and have a tour! You should probably warn us in advance however :)

Thank you for your interest and I hope to welcome you as a customer with us and that you will stay for many years to come.

Why Are We In Business

Webdock spent about 12 months building the initial version of the Webdock platform based on the philosophy that cloud hosting should be simply priced, efficient, production-ready, reliable, low-cost, highly automated and with few if any buzzwords and nonsense.

Webdock has the simple goal of providing virtual machine hosting which makes sense to agencies and developers.

We started as web-development professionals at Digital Advertising studios in Denmark and we had been in the business of hosting a great number of websites starting since about 2012. We started like everybody else on shared-hosting platforms, then migrating over to VPS servers and finally leasing bare-metal servers and setting up our own virtual machines. We dabbled in Amazon and all the other big Cloud Platforms for a while but were dissapointed ...

How come all the big cloud VPS hosting companies have such sub-par control panels?

How come everything feels so slow in the Cloud vs. Bare Metal? Why does pricing and billing have to be so damned complicated?

After discovering the raw speed of using containerization on bare metal and with a clear list of problems we wanted to solve in the VPS hosting space we set to work investigating and trialing whether our approach was even possible. We had many challenges getting shared-kernel virtualization (read: fast, modern containers) to work and realized we were breaking new ground. After much initial engineering we realized we could solve all the problems we had encountered and saw a path forward to a truly speedy and useful VPS platform. We created our Mission Statement you see below and started building out our dashboard in early 2017 ...

The Webdock Mission Statement

These are all the things that make us unique.

Platform Built From Scratch

We started from first principles and built a platform which is lean and mean and “just works”. We keep the customer perspective in focus at all times and try to provide features that make their life easier. We are in full control and we can be agile.

Performance Focus

Performance should be able to scale up significantly during peak load without affecting other customers negatively. Users should be warned in a timely manner of capacity issues and be able to easily scale hardware to match their requirements without it costing an arm and a leg. In short, delete “capacity anxiety” from the equation.

Epic Support

We babysit your servers, provide Epic Support and proactively ensure availability. This includes automatically balancing our infrastructure and closely monitoring usage patterns across our platform as well as recommending upgrades and scaling strategies to our users when appropriate.

Innovate continuously

Whichever metric we can find which we can optimize or do better than the competition: Do it and do it well!

Predictable Billing

We eliminate fee-fatigue and customer annoyance with messy pricing schemes and eliminate the “if somebody starts sending us a lot of traffic we will go broke paying our cloud bill” anxiety.

Perfect Server Stacks

We provide up-to-date and optimized production-ready web server stacks. Which are kept continuously updated and held to the highest production-ready standards. Saving the discerning professional lots of time and effort.

Free Web Server Management Panel

Providing all the automation and convenience features clients need to be productive including bundling valuable high-quality 3rd party services where it makes sense, at no additional cost to the client.

Free Snapshots

Make sure clients have plenty of "works out of the box" and reliable, duplicated backups. These are frequently tested, monitored extensively and improved upon continuously.

Document Everything

Make sure that customer servers are never a black box of unknowability. You should be able to find out easily how everything is put together and why.

We use 100% renewable electricity from sources like the sun, wind and sea.

Green Energy

We make sure all our electricity utilization is supplied by renewable sources such as solar, hydro or wind energy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Of course you get full root access We just don't enable direct login with root and a password, as that is just plain silly and insecure. It is easy to become root once logged in with your Webdock sudo user, and if you really want to you can enable root login with password auth rather easily. Connecting with SSH is as easy as using our Web SSH terminal. If you want to use your own SSH client then we have instructions for that as well. Please click here for an overview of all our SSH guides.

We have multiple tiers of DDOS protection and round-the-clock in-depth monitoring of our entire infrastructure. Often we will be able to warn you of a hack as it happens. We have great security by default and you can turn off components easily such as FTP using scripts in the Webdock control panel.

All servers get a dedicated, clean, IPv4 address as well as an IPv6 address space.

We claim we have great performance compared to other hosts, and indeed we do. We have always aimed at providing some - if not the best - performance for money in the industry. We have even gone so far as to issue a Performance Guarantee

No. Webdock only supports Ubuntu, AlmaLinux, CentOS and Debian as valid operating systems at this time. You cannot supply your own VPS image - you have to start with the OS images we provide.

Paired with our Perfect Server stacks the Webdock Control Panel is a very capable web server control panel already with all the common features you need. While the Webdock Control Panel has a lot of the same features as cPanel, it is not suitable for shared hosting (multiple websites on a single VPS) - read more about why here. If you want shared hosting or features the Webdock Control Panel does not have at the moment, we support a wide range of third party control panels. including cPanel.

We support seamless upgrading or downgrading of your server which you can do yourself from the Upgrade/Downgrade screen in Webdock. Profile changes are usually instant but may in some cases trigger a reboot of your server.

All Webdock hardware is owned by Webdock and is typically operated in co-location. This means we rent server racks from Datacenter providers directly. We also operate our own network equipment and IP blocks.

Webdock is located in Denmark and we operate hardware in co-location with Hetzner in Finland and Cologix/Servermania in Canada. Soon we will be opening up our very own datacenter in Denmark.

We are super nice when it comes to billing. All servers are free for up to 24 hours after you create them and you can delete the server at any time and you will receive an instant refund for any unused time down to the day. No lock-in, no lost pre-payments. Read more about Billing & Pricing
