I am writing this to find people who have problems with iWeb Technology.

The reason for this message, I had an experience that can be very problematic with Iweb technology, too frequent problems of slowness, no notice of technicians on service reductions, has never been able to solve problems. My biggest problem, iWeb has removed several of my sites, where the application is made by me on their support services. The request was to change my primary domain to another. (No delete all my sites)

I made backups of the main directory for two weeks, one day, nothing! All my domains were absent, I did not panic, I thought the backups that I made in my administration panel were good! To my surprise, all my files are corrupt! Unable to open backup files. Several times in the months preceding this incident, I sent several service tickets and customer support for problems that were presented in my administration panel, an SQL error was present, [read more...]

Performance are OK, 50% of the time. The other time it's slow, slow and very slow response time. The tech support is not there for you. They think you are just noob even when they are wrong. They over size server, so you have like 1000 or 2000 websites on your shared hosting and they do not know why performance are bad. Simple, too much people for too few performance server. Good plan but poor service. Don't go there...

I will not recommand this hosting to anybody.

Editorial Review

iWeb Technologies Inc. has been providing reliable and scalable Internet hosting infrastructure solutions with its shared web hosting, dedicated servers, managed hosting and colocation services for over a decade.

At the beginning, iWeb originally operated under the "Formation et Technologies Formatek" name. It started as a general Internet related services company to later focus on Web Hosting. It is in 1998 and 1999, as a result of mergers and partnerships with SMEs specializing in Internet solutions (Formatek, Infonet Services, WebDepart and JBCreation), that iWeb reoriented itself towards Internet hosting and server management to make it its specialty.

Headquartered in Montreal since 1998, the public company (TSX-V: IWB) has enjoyed a steady growth since its inception, currently employing more than 170 talented hosting specialists and operating four data centers in the greater Montreal area.

Operating in the heart of the Old Montreal from 2000 to 2004, close to the Multimedia City, iWeb survived the dot com bubble burst and was growing beyond all expectations. At the end of 2003, in addition to signing an agreement to enter the stock market, iWeb acquired a 10,000 square foot building and moved its headquarters into its spacious new office. Only two years later, after the acquisition of the Hosting Division of iNet-Interactif/Funio, in February of 2006, iWeb acquired a new 20,000 square foot building and built its second data center in St-Leonard on the Island of Montreal. In October 2007, iWeb announced the opening of a third data center of 29,000 square feet, in Nuns' Island near Montreal.

Today iWeb is one of the largest web hosts and Internet hosting infrastructures provider in Canada. iWeb's operations centres shelter a total of more than 90,000 square feet of latest generation data center and office floor space in Montreal and offers a wide variety of first class web hosting and server management services. IWeb is recognized for the quality of its customer service and its highly competitive prices. In January 2010, iWeb announced the addition of the new 31,000 square feet data center, in the LaSalle borough (western part of Montreal), with the capacity to host 20,000 dedicated servers. This new facility will bring the total dedicated server capacity of iWeb to nearly 35,000 servers.

Why choose iWeb?
* For the trust customers have placed in us for so many years (More than 21,000 customers in over 150 countries)
* Our network is rock solid (ranked by Netcraft as top performer multiple times)
* We love making your life easier (with unique tools like our Customer Hub or Panelbox)
* Because at iWeb, there is someone ready to answer your questions (By phone, chat and email 24 hours a day)
* We operate our own data centers (and control every aspect of your hosting solution)
* We guarantee your satisfaction (and will give you your money back, no questions asked, within 30 days)
* We offer an unbeatable 100% power & network uptime SLA (and always post technical notifications on our status blog)
* We are commited to serving you better (and listening to your feedback)

Our network is linked to important upstream suppliers that connect to hundreds of exchange partners which assures a constant Internet connection and superior routing. Bottom line: increased Internet efficiency and 100% availability guaranteed. Whether it is through our High Quality or our Unmetered network, access to your services will be uninterrupted.
* Your choice : High Quality or Unmetered
* Congestion-free network ( see for yourself )
* 100% Uptime SLA
* Over 50Gbps Capacity

iWeb set itself apart by offering you the opportunity to choose the network that best suits your needs. The dedicated servers, managed hosting solutions and colocation customers can freely choose between the High Quality Network or the Unmetered network.

We understand that network uptime is crucial for your valuable online presence and this is why iWeb's entire network is fully redundant. From the Cisco routing equipments to the upstream bandwidth providers, there is no single point of failure. At iWeb, your servers will be accessible and online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days per year.

On iWeb's high quality network, the outgoing traffic travels via Tata Communications (formerly Teleglobe), Videotron, Peer1,TorIX, Level 3 and Deutsche Telekom using the shortest route. For inbound traffic, all available providers are used, Tata Communications, Videotron, Peer1,TorIX, Level 3, Deutsche Telekom and Cogent. During an outage affecting a high quality network provider, the unmetered network can be used to ensure service availability. All this in order to ensure 100% uptime of the network access and prevent saturation of certain access links

On iWeb's Unmetered network, the outgoing traffic travels almost completely via Cogent without importance on the length of the route. Why? Because transfer costs via Cogent are less expensive and thus guarantee a better price. For inbound traffic, all available providers are used, Tata Communications, Videotron, Peer1,TorIX, Level 3, Deutsche Telekom and Cogent. During an outage affecting an Unmetered network provider, the high quality network can be used to ensure service availability.

iWeb's network is fast. Listed multiple times in Netcraft's Hosting Providers Network Performance Top 10, our network is hard to beat when it comes to availability and response time. In order to back our claims, we have gathered, using traceroute, response times for many of the countries for whom we host servers. Considering the size of the country and certain factors that may differ, the results showed on the graphic are inaccurate and show an average response time for the country.

Power of Dedicated
No shared resources
Unlike with cloud-only solutions, all hardware is 100% dedicated to you. You benefit from all the resources available in your server without running the risk of being affected by other users.

Real CPU power
With dedicated servers, what you see is what you get. You are not getting an exclusive "cpu core" or mere "processor cycles" but an actual Intel or AMD CPU dedicated to you!

Wide range of configurations
Dedicated hardware allows for a greater choice of configurations than with most cloud-based solutions. Whether you need a single server or an enterprise-grade solution our servers cover a wide range of usage.

No suprise billing plans
Purchasing your bandwidth on demand seems like an interesting proposition but you'd be suprised how costly in can get. For a limited time all Smart Servers include 10TB traffic. Try to beat that!

Flexibility of the cloud
Fast Automated Delivery
Our servers are pre-provisioned, pre-wired and ready to be configured. Once your order is accepted, Smart Layer facilitates its integration in our hosting infrastructure and allows for its delivery in 2 hours or less.

Powerful server management
We wanted to make your life easier with a more user-friendly interface. The improved, and constantly evolving, Customer Hub allows you to manage all aspects of your server administration.

Easy server migrations
Migration is now as easy as moving a perfect image of your environment to a new machine, hence eliminating long and painful reconfigurations when you need a bigger and faster server.

Virtual console
Thanks to Smart Layer and its virtual console, all Smart Servers allow you to access the OS startup screen as if you were actually on location. Available with all Smart Servers as a free feature.

Data Center

iWeb operates four data centers, three of which are completely owned by the company. The hosting facilities answer the clientele's specific needs while respecting a series of criteria concerning accessibility, security and availability. Do not hesitate to contact us to plan a visit !

iWeb-HD, iWeb-CL and iWeb-NE facilities offer dedicated servers and colocation spaces while iWeb-CO is mostly a colocation facility and the only one offering cages. Each facility is built with iWeb's wide range of services in mind, isolating colocation services from dedicated server services and managed hosting services.

iWeb manages 90,000 square feet of space in its three operation centers. The total area is comprised of data center floors and office floors to accommodate all of its 170 employees working in the sales, marketing, software development, billing, finance, customer service, data center services and network infrastructures areas.

iWeb's data centers feature multiple access protected zones: the dedicated server hosting zone, the private racks hosting zone, the single server colocation zone, the managed hosting zone and the shared web services zone. Each data center partition is designed specifically for the type of hosting services it will shelter. Therefore, empty raised floor areas are available to fulfill cages and wholesale customers' needs, colocation areas filled with empty server cabinets are available for private colocation racks customers and iWeb-only access areas loaded with tower servers installed on shelves are ready to fulfill your dedicated server needs.

iWeb's data centers are equipped with a wide range of security, power management, cooling and network access equipment. Biometric sensors, security cameras and secure access are the first items encountered on-site. In addition to thousands of servers, power regulation systems, diesel generators and air conditioning systems are vital aspects of the facilities. All these infrastructures are totally controlled and managed by iWeb's team of hosting infrastructures experts.

Connectivity to the Internet is assured by multiple black fibers getting into the buildings' telco rooms through diverse entry points. Multi-gigabit connectivity is used to link iWeb's data centers to each other and to connect upstream providers to iWeb's own network. iWeb's team monitors the data center and network operations 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year.

Furthermore, iWeb offers data center space in four geographically distinct locations enabling for business continuity planning and business critical server operations. Customers can outsource crucial hosting operations easily using private dedicated server racks in two or more iWeb data centers and replicating the sensitive hosting architecture, applications and data between the data centers. Whether you want to host your first web site or you are thinking of outsourcing advanced data center needs, iWeb offers a unique high quality all in one hosting infrastructure solution.
