A survey of Leclerc Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Leclerc Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we expect that this brief evaluation of 'Leclerc Hosting' is probably going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Leclerc Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple data center locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Leclerc Hosting' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have detected is the low-cost prices of the shared web space hosting solutions offered by 'Leclerc Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting plans offered by 'Leclerc Hosting' are powered by an in-house devised, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by an individual stack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have mammoth predicaments with, because cPanel is a one-server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel hosting suppliers cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to devise their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine clustered webspace hosting solution. With a shared hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the web hosting price very low (because a lot of customers utilize one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting system, allows you to pay only for the resources that you actually require, evading a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a basic web space hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. Hence, you save capital that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Every web site hosting package offered by 'Leclerc Hosting' contains an online website building tool and more than forty widely used script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Leclerc Hosting' distributes shared site hosting packages in a number of different regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, almost the entire World is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable web hosting service at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting services supplied 'Leclerc Hosting' are very well stocked and come at a cut-rate price (beginning from €2.80 for the Starter package).

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'Leclerc Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' anticipations, 'Leclerc Hosting' offers a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers are offering: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and steady work of any sort of website. According to 'Leclerc Hosting', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server solutions offered by 'Leclerc Hosting' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each web server provides free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers furnished by 'Leclerc Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to €30.56 EUR. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of web space hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the impressive point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web hosting CP will probably render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Leclerc Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from €38.58 for the Atom 2c package.
