Hebergeur Discount is a registered trademark of France-based LWS (Ligne Web Services) that started its journey in 2003. At present, LWS has 180,000+ hosted sites. Hebergeur Discount is a 100% French web hosting company that uses the LWS network infrastructure. It offers shared web hosting (including WordPress hosting) and VPS hosting, domain registration and transfer, and SEO services. Although there is a drop-down list to see the site’s versions for multiple locations with relevant currencies, none are ready except for the European version.
Features and Ease of Use
Hebergeur Discount offers four shared hosting plans (one of which is a domain pack), three WordPress hosting plans, and six VPS plans, all with add-on SEO plans to improve your site’s rankings. With the company’s three shared hosting plans, you get:
- 1 to unlimited hosted sites
- 99.9% uptime
- 300 GB to unlimited disk space
- Unlimited web traffic
- Wildcard SSL certificate (for the two higher plans)
These plans offer you a free domain name with .com, .fr, .eu, .net, .be, .org, .info, or .biz extensions. With the LWS Installer that comes with 100+ pre-installed software and themes, Hebergeur Discount lets you easily install WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, PrestaShop, Zen Cart, osCommerce, phpBB, and more with a single click.
With SiteCreator – a website creation software, you can easily build your website even if you have no technical expertise. You can also create a customized website using the SiteBuilder Pro M paid plan, which comes with 195 graphic templates along with an e-commerce store module, image slider, and photo gallery module.
Due to the use of RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks) technology that ensures redundancy of hard drives, Hebergeur Discount ensures that your data stays protected even if a drive fails. For its VPS plans, it uses RAID 5 SSD (for the low-cost range) and RAID 10 SSD storage (for the standard range).
The company also provides VPS customers with the ISPConfig server control panel and full root access, letting you manage your VPS server independently.
Hebergeur Discount uses at least N + 1 redundant infrastructure. This means if two generators are needed to provide uninterrupted power, it will install three. It also takes multiple steps to reduce its energy consumption and offer eco-friendly products and services.
Pricing and Support
Hebergeur Discount price its shared hosting plans competitively. These plans are payable in EUR through PayPal, Skrill, and credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, or American Express). The available billing periods are annual to triennial. Biennial plans offer you a 10% discount while triennial plans offer anything between 15% and 35% price discounts.
With a 30-day money-back guarantee, you can try the hosting plans without a worry. You have to send a refund request within seven days of your order confirmation.
Hebergeur Discount’s customer support is available seven days a week. You can reach them through live chat (weekdays: 10 am-8 pm; weekends: 10 am-6 pm), a hotline phone number (weekdays: 9 am-7 pm), and email via an online form (for technical and commercial assistance). If you are an existing client, you can also raise a ticket from the client area to get support for a technical problem. As the company’s live chat wasn’t available when I tried, I used the online form to get answers to some generic questions. However, I failed to get a reply.
If you want to find answers to common problems yourself, there is a knowledge base, FAQ section, user guides, and video tutorials. However, a couple of the video tutorials I tried didn’t work.
