When it comes to reliability, Webvisions revealed that they have a fully redundant power supply with additional 45 minutes of standby power available, temperature controls to control climate and humidity, and a host of other features making their systems fully redundant and providing 100% uptime. As for measurable services, Webvisions provides network guarantees, disaster recovery policy statements, service level agreements and customized agreements on a per-customer basis.

Depending on the service requested, you could be paying from as low as S$400 (US$222) to a high of S$20,000 (US$11,111) per month. The most expensive charges are for the dedicated servers while the cheapest would be simply using Webvisions for co-location.

However, it is difficult to judge the costing at face value unless the customer specifies its needs and the types of services required.

Webvisions offers a variety of value-added services, with some of them listed below:

· 30-Days' Termination Policy

Webvisions considers their Virtual and Dedicated Servers (ServerXpress) competitive because their customers need only give them 30 days' termination notice to end the contract. Unlike the usual 12-month or 18-month contracts that bind customers, according to them, they have committed themselves to providing optimum service to their customers. This means that customers are free to leave Webvisions at any time they are unhappy with their services.

· Multiple Domain hosting

They provide hosting of multiple domains on the same virtual server. The web designer is given a profile of client to host, and farms out multiple web sites on the same space. This makes the solution rather cost-effective for certain customers.

· Managed Services Range

Managed Services ranges from serving disaster recovery solutions, managed security solutions, content management, caching and delivery solutions toload balancing solutions, and system administration.
