A review of Leclerc Hosting

We, at, have selected 'Leclerc Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting provider. Therefore we believe that this concise review of 'Leclerc Hosting' is probably going to be quite useful for other people from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Leclerc Hosting' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing almost the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Leclerc Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Website Hosting Services

The first detail we, at, have noticed is the modest prices of the shared website hosting packages delivered 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 accounts provided by 'Leclerc Hosting' are driven by an in-house designed, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by a different set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have considerable difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting providers cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to make their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting plans, which are powered by an actual clustered website hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus retaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (because a lot of users share one and the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you actually demand, averting a situation where you pay for an advanced hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a small webspace hosting package that cannot handle your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your site grows. Thus, you economize funds that you can invest in advertising the web page while it is still new. Each web space hosting plan provided by 'Leclerc Hosting' comprises an online web site building tool and over 40 widely used script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Leclerc Hosting' provides shared web space hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, virtually the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a stable and fast webspace hosting service at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting solutions offered 'Leclerc Hosting' are quite well furnished and are available at a very reasonable price (starting from €2.62 for the Starter package).

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the guys from 'Leclerc Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' expectations, 'Leclerc Hosting' delivers a collection of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware configurations the servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and steady performance of any type of website. In 'Leclerc Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server solutions offered by 'Leclerc Hosting' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server arrives with free billing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Leclerc Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a tiny defect, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to €28.61 EUR. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An array of hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the amazing point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Leclerc Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from €38.58 for the Atom 2c package.
