These plans offer an optional dedicated IP, and they’re optimized for e-commerce with CubeCart, osCommerce, and Zen Cart. The Softaculous installer helps you install 250+ popular content management and other applications, including WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, phpBB, and PrestaShop.

LeasedLayer uses RAID and other redundancy features to guard against disk data disasters and other failures, and virtual/dedicated server customers get full root access for complete server control.
Pricing and Support
LeasedLayer’s shared hosting plans are priced competitively. You can pay for them in U.S. dollars, euros, or Indian rupees by bank transfer or PayPal. Billing periods range from monthly to triennial, and you benefit from bigger discounts for longer commitments. A 30-day money-back guarantee should get you out with a full refund within the first month if anything goes wrong.
For self-support, LeasedLayer’s knowledge base is pretty well populated. If this doesn’t answer all your questions, you can contact the 24/7 technical support team via ticket, email, online contact form, live chat, or Skype.
