An evaluation of Leclerc Hosting

We, at, have picked 'Leclerc Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Therefore we suppose that this concise evaluation of 'Leclerc Hosting' is perchance going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Leclerc Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing almost the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Leclerc Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The first thing we, at, have spotted is the modest prices of the shared webspace hosting accounts supplied by 'Leclerc Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting plans supplied by 'Leclerc Hosting' are driven by a custom built, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by a separate pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have considerable difficulties with, since cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel website hosting suppliers are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must design their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by an actual cloud web hosting platform. With a shared hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the price really low (since lots of clients are located on one and the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web page hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the resources that you indeed require, refraining from a situation where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny web page hosting account that cannot host your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a small package and upgrade as your web site expands. Hence, you economize funds that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still new. Each site hosting plan furnished by 'Leclerc Hosting' includes an online web site builder and over 40 widely used script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Leclerc Hosting' distributes shared site hosting packages in several different countries around the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Thus, virtually the entire World is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting service at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting accounts provided 'Leclerc Hosting' are really well furnished and are available at a very good price (starting from €2.62 for the Starter package).

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, large web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web stores with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful web space hosting solution. It appears that the fellows from 'Leclerc Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' anticipations, 'Leclerc Hosting' provides an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and stable work of any kind of website. According to 'Leclerc Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'Leclerc Hosting' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server comes with free invoicing software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Leclerc Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a little problem, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to €28.61 EUR. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web page hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Leclerc Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from €38.58 for the Atom 2c plan.
