An assessment of Leclerc Hosting

We, at, have chosen 'Leclerc Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting vendor. This is why we consider that this concise assessment of 'Leclerc Hosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Leclerc Hosting' presently offers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing approximately the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Leclerc Hosting' in short:

Shared Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have seen is the budget prices of the shared webspace hosting plans furnished by 'Leclerc Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting packages provided by 'Leclerc Hosting' are powered by a custom developed, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on an individual host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have big predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web page hosting companies are not able to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must build their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting plans, which are powered by a real clustered website hosting solution. With a shared site hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the site hosting price very low (since lots of users share the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud web page hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, avoiding a situation where you pay for a high-end web space hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a tiny webspace hosting package that cannot host your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a small package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. In this way, you economize funds that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each website hosting account supplied by 'Leclerc Hosting' boasts an online web site building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'Leclerc Hosting' distributes shared web page hosting accounts in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European server farms - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, almost the entire Globe is covered to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast hosting service at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions provided 'Leclerc Hosting' are very well stocked and come at a good price (beginning from €2.61 for the Starter plan).

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, big websites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of clients require a much more powerful website hosting platform. It appears that the folks from 'Leclerc Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' anticipations, 'Leclerc Hosting' provides a collection of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware configurations the web servers have: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the quick and stable performance of any sort of web site. According to 'Leclerc Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server accounts furnished by 'Leclerc Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server offers free-of-cost billing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Leclerc Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a tiny weakness, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of €28.46 EUR. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a number of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the great point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will probably render the use of any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Leclerc Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from €38.58 for the Atom 2c package.
