Webdock is a different Cloud Hosting platform

Webdock is aimed at professionals and semi-professionals with the goal of providing an absolutely awesome and rock-solid hosting experience. We achieve this by building a hosting environment based on Linux Containers and ZFS on performant hardware which give you as close to bare-metal speeds as-is possible in a virtualized environment, ensuring we can deliver better performance at a comparably low price.

Simply put: A better, faster, cheaper and more useful VPS product for PHP and Web-Application developers globally

Scaling built in. Built to perform.

With our high limits, active balancing and lighting fast 90k+ iops SSD's, a standard Webdock instance is more than adequate to run the vast majority of your production websites. Add some clever Cloudflare caching and you can serve hundreds of thousands of visitors with just a single server. Our servers are built to perform.

High baseline security

We have great security by default and you can turn off components easily such as FTP using scripts in the Webdock control panel. 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 babysit your server. We fix things

Call it semi-managed hosting. Our support boundary includes continuously monitoring your server and notifying you if we detect any anomalous activity. We help troubleshoot configuration and fix server issues relating to our LAMP or LEMP stacks. We will even keep your server updated - contact us for custom SLA's.

Lots of free backups included

Webdock provides more backup snapshots than most. With 2 daily and 3 weekly snapshots in addition to your own 3 snapshot slots for each server, you have plenty of history to roll back to. Restoring a snapshot to a live server is snappy with minimal downtime.

Free SSL Certificates (HTTPS)

Get HTTPS security on your sites for free with Webdock using our Lets Encrypt integration. We believe it is high time SSL is free and easy to set up, and if you are paying for it, maybe it's time for a change...

Free Transactional Emailing

Webdock offers free transactional emailing with Postmark. Take advantage of bulletproof delivery and the awesome reporting of Postmark to keep track of all your outgoing mail. We pick up the bill.

Free Email Forwarding

Webdock offers free email forwarding with ForwardMX. If you don't need a fully fledged mailbox, this is a quick and easy way to start receiving emails on your domain(s).
