A review of Leclerc Hosting

We, at, have selected 'Leclerc Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting distributor. Therefore we believe that this concise evaluation of 'Leclerc Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'Leclerc Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in several data center locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering virtually the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Leclerc Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared web hosting services provided by 'Leclerc Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting plans supplied by 'Leclerc Hosting' are driven by a custom designed, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an autonomous stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have great difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel hosting corporations cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to design their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine cloud website hosting system. With a shared hosting account, each client pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the hosting price very low (since many users utilize the same server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web hosting system, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you really require, avoiding a scenario where you pay for an advanced web space hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a small hosting plan that cannot shelter your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your website grows. Thus, you economize money that you can expend on publicizing the web site while it is still new. Each and every hosting plan offered by 'Leclerc Hosting' includes an online web site builder and more than forty popular script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Leclerc Hosting' supplies shared site hosting packages in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, nearly the entire planet is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast webspace hosting service at a convenient location. On the whole, the shared hosting services supplied 'Leclerc Hosting' are very well stocked and come at a very attractive price (starting from €2.79 for the Starter plan).

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web stores with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful hosting solution. It appears that the folks from 'Leclerc Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its users' requirements, 'Leclerc Hosting' supplies a collection of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware specs the web servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the fast and steady performance of any kind of website. According to 'Leclerc Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specifications provided by 'Leclerc Hosting' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server offers free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Leclerc Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a slight downside, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to €30.40 EUR. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers several additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An array of Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia website hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any FTP software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Leclerc Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from €38.58 for the Atom 2c package.
