Web security is crucial. Period. In an effort to make your website a safer place, we’re excited to announce that we’ll now be offering free SSL Certificates for all customers who purchase hosting with Webvision.
So what is an SSL Certificate? If you have seen “https://” and a green padlock on your browser address bar, you’ve seen the end result of an SSL certificate. SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. Essentially, SSL establishes an encrypted link between your web server and your visitor’s web browser. This ensures that all data passed between the two remains private and secure.
Nowadays, many entities, including Google, are pushing to use secure HTTPS connections for all traffic. That means with the help of your SSL certificate you can be assured of a better ranking on Google!
To those of you have been in our Atlanta datacentre, we are pleased to announce that the server migration to the cloud environment is now complete. We initially planned this for early January but had to wait a few more weeks for everything to come into a smooth transition.
Our private cloud consists of enterprise SANS for redundant disk arrays, high quality supermicro hypervisors, and cisco and hp network switching.
You will continue to receive exceptional support with cutting-edge software, and a fault tolerant and fully redundant cloud environment.
As you may already know, high performance SSD storage is 20x faster than standard SATA disk drives and some of you are sure to have noticed the difference!
This has been a fantastic and a blessed year for all of us at Webvision. Can you imagine the year has come to an end? Phew! Time does fly when you are enjoying what you are doing…
We can’t thank you enough for your recommendations, referrals and feedback on our service this year. It’s so invaluable to have great clients who truly see the power of partnership. So if you think something needs to be changed, be sure to get in touch with us via email where your ideas will get fed into our development plan. We wouldn’t be where we are today if it weren’t for your patience and loyalty, so here’s a big thank you!
Here’s some good news for those on our US server… From the beginning of 2017, we plan to migrate all our accounts to a more powerful cloud platform. Hooray!! That means, all our clients will now enjoy the benefits of the cloud.
Kindly note, Webvision will be closed from December 24th to January 3rd.
Wishing you happy holidays and a happy new year to all our clients, business partners and associates across the world. We look forward to working together in 2017!

To those of you who are on our US based server, there is some very good news.
In July we began expanding our datacenter footprint into a new cage in our main collocation facility in Atlanta, USA. We are doing a series of upgrades across our entire fleet to better serve our long standing clients and to prepare the way for future growth. We began with a series of network upgrades that are set to be completed very soon and will give us 1000% more capacity and greater redundancy as well as expand the long awaited private network on the back-end. Then we will be upgrading client servers to Solid State Drive (SSD) across every service we offer.
May be you are thinking of owning your own dedicated server? Contact us for some amazing features bundled at an amazing price!
Further to my earlier post on the upgrade of cPanel, there’s more good news to follow… cPanel has now released a rather important new feature that can help you to get a basic website up and running for free, using their cool tool named Site Publisher.
Okay, the Site Publisher features are not a replacement for Joomla, WordPress or any other true content management system. In fact, it’s not meant to create a fancy website either but if you want to get started on your site, this tool can definitely help as shown in the following video:
To those of you have already registered a domain and have your own hosting account but still don’t have all the details ready for your big site, then go use Site Publisher and be amazed with the results.
Yes, it’s Avurudu bonanza time here at Webvision. We’ve hit the cloud and now offer amazing SSD unlimited cloud hosting from reliable servers in the UK.
Did I say “unlimited”? Okay, there is no such thing as an unlimited disk drive but with the abundance of resources, we are able to provide a fantastic service without limits for hosting, emails and bandwidth. If you’re really worried what’s on offer, read the finer points on our TOS. This will tell you in black and white that if you are going to use your hosting account primarily for online file storage or archiving electronic files – you’ve got the wrong package – LOL!
Ride on the unlimited package for an unbelievable price of Rs. 500 per month! What’s more, we will throw in the first month free if you sign up before April 30, 2016. Join us today – webvision.cloud.
Here’s more good news: In recognition of the loyalty of some of our web hosting customers who have stuck with us for almost ten years or more, we would be upgrading their accounts to the unlimited package in the coming days free of charge. This is our way of saying “thank you for dealing with Webvision”.
So here’s සුභ අලුත් අවුරුද්දක් වේවා! and இனிய புத்தாண்டு நல்வாழ்த்துக்கள்!
In case you are wondering why your cPanel UI is looking so cool, it’s because we’ve upgraded to the latest version 54. Actually, it’s not just about the visual aesthetic of the user interface, it is also about delivering an enhanced experience for you as a user.
I know, some hate change but fret not… the changes and improvements in 54 and beyond, will maintain the same functionality that you have come to know and love. Don’t forget, if you do have any issues, our support team is ready to assist.
