About our Hosting Service < Back

We take pride in our excellent record with regard to server stability, accessibility, and security. Our speed and responsiveness is due not only to powerful, self healing servers, but also by limiting the number of accounts we place on each server.  Only those clients of WebWorksPro reside on our servers.



8 vCPUS / 7.2Ghz | Guaranteed Ram:  8192MB

Unlike traditional hosting, our infrastructure is cloud-based. Every server is self-healing; if any hardware fails, that server will fall out of the cloud and your site will come back online within seconds on new hardware. Automatically.  Unlike standard VPS or shared hosting, Hosting on the cloud gives you a fixed and guaranteed resource, even if you get a huge traffic surge. Cloud hosting guarantees better performance, uptime and stability.


Our Cloud server is replicated in real time via Multipath I/O over a total of 96 drives of full redundancy. Snapshot backups are integrated with each server setup.  Your website is backed up weekly off-server and weekly, locally.


24/7 Monitoring and Management:  Your cloud server is monitored 24/7 by a full staff of qualified and experienced technicians who perform hardware and network management, firewall configuration, OS and pre-installed software support, security and server hardening.

Private Server:   We purposely don't target the 'masses' by offering low cost hosting. This keeps a controlled amount of accounts on a single server, and avoids attracting malicious activity. We target those clients who are looking for a more complete hosting and maintenance solution to get more bang for their buck. Often, low cost hosting accounts are opened for the sole purpose of spamming once, then disappearing. This results in our servers in jeopardy of being blacklisted. Additionally, hosting only those sites we develop prevents careless installation of insecure scripts and programs which are resource hogs. Such programs can cause a server to be slow in response.

Security, Firewall and Login Intrusion Detection:  A full suite of scripts provide your website with protection against login intruders including excessive users, excessive connections, excessive email relaying, suspicious processes, port flooding, load balance monitoring, account modification monitoring, etc.  Please see the full list of firewall specifications below.  Our technicians also have our servers on firewatch 24/7 and will respond immediately to any suspicious activity. 

Regulated Malware Scanning: MALDET/LINUX:  Linux Malware Detect (LMD) is a malware scanner for Linux released under the GNU GPLv2 license, that is designed around the threats faced in hosted environments. It uses threat data from network edge intrusion detection systems to extract malware that is actively being used in attacks and generates signatures for detection. In addition, threat data is also derived from user submissions with the LMD checkout feature and from malware community resources.

Regulated Malware Scanning: CLAMAV:  Clam AntiVirus (ClamAV) is a cross-platform antivirus software tool-kit able to detect many types of malicious software, including viruses. One of its main uses is on mail servers as a server-side email virus scanner.

Clam AntiVirus is an open source (GPL) anti-virus toolkit for UNIX, designed especially for e-mail scanning on mail gateways. It provides a number of utilities including a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon, a command line scanner and advanced tool for automatic database updates. The core of the package is an anti-virus engine available in a form of shared library.

Main Features:

  • command-line scanner

  • fast, multi-threaded daemon with support for on-access scanning
    milter interface for sendmail

  • advanced database updater with support for scripted updates and digital signatures

  • virus scanner C library

  • on-access scanning (Linux® and FreeBSD®)
