Very good VPS with very good price and guaranteed speed. I've been using it for two months now and it's a great fit.For more than two months, there have been no downtime problems, which is very important. In addition to the price, a stable server can also bring a better experience for users.

I am a power linux user and have tried VPS's from Amazon, Oracle, Microsoft and so many other vendors, but trust me, that no one gives such an extremely pleasant interface where things are intuitive and pleasing to work with. It seems that the development team has applied design thinking very well to build such an awesome product.

Lastly when I tried a LXD container and was having issues with it (of my own making, nothing to do with the provider), their customer service team kicked in because of a one liner I added while deleting the LXD instance. They guided me on the right path, pointed to their well written documentation. I can't tell you how good that felt. They seem to care about their users.

Awesome service overall. Keep it up.

Performance

How well does the host perform? The answer to this question can be found by using three metrics; server speeds, uptime, and page load time. Before committing to a host, you should first consider these three metrics as they will give you an idea of how well your website will perform when hosted there.

Like most hosts, Webdock promises a 99.9% uptime guarantee, which is the industry standard. To measure the server speed and loading time, I ran a test on a site hosted on webdock.io, using GTMetrix.

The results were as follows:

The server had a TTFB of 203ms and the websites’ fully loaded time was 1.5s. As for the overall performance, the website scored 96%

FAQ

Is Webdock Cheap?

Yes, their plans are very affordable. Their Xeon Cloud VPS Hosting starts at just $2.99/month while their Water-cooled Ryzen cloud VPS hosting starts at $4.99/month. Both offer a lot of disk space, bandwidth, and extra features.

What is Webdock best suited for?

For individuals who want to host websites with moderate traffic, such as online stores, corporate websites, and workplace apps, hosting is the best option.

What is Webdock’s review on Trustpilot?

Currently, Webdock is rated 4.97 on TrustPilot (compiled from 158 reviews)

What factors impact the overall performance of a website?

Speed – When we talk about a host server’s speeds, we refer to its “time to first byte” (TTFB), basically how quickly the server sends the first byte of data to a site visitor. If the TTFB of a host is higher, then your site will be delivered quickly to the user.

Uptime  is the host server’s “online time” within a time period, and the higher the uptime, the more reliable the host (higher uptime = less downtime). High uptimes mean your site will be active most of the time.

Loading time – the average loading time of the website shows how long it takes till your site is fully rendered and functional (i.e. can be clicked). Fast page load time means your site is well-optimized.

These three factors impact the overall performance of your site on the host.
