Established in 2010, Levation provides IT services that range from website design, domain name registration, SSL certificates, and shared web hosting to digital marketing services. Its data center is located in Sydney, Australia and its website is available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Levation provides three shared hosting plans: Excite, Accelerate, and Dominate. They provide features that are suitable for small to medium-sized business websites. These are some of the features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Daily and weekly automatic backups
- Free SSL certificates
- From 5GB to 25GB disk space
- Unlimited bandwidth
It offers an unlimited number of MariaDB databases, unlimited parked domains, and unlimited add-on domains.
To boost your website’s loading time and improve overall performance, Levation offers Cloudflare and Railgun CDN as part of its features. This also helps to fight against DDoS attacks, malware, and spam.
Levation offers the cPanel control panel on its plans. Management of backups, spam filtering options, databases, and other website files is made easy through cPanel. It takes beginner-friendliness even further with a provision of automatic installation of scripts through the Installatron one-click installer, which you will find in cPanel.
The company uses fully redundant SSD RAID storage on its servers. This further increases the read speed of your server and protects your data in case of a drive failure.
Security is important in the hosting business and every website owner wants to host its platform where it will be secure. For this reason, Levation provides advanced security tools and features like CageFS, CXS, LFD, CSF, and mod_security.
Pricing and Support
Levation has three shared hosting plans with monthly, quarterly, semiannual, annual, biennial, and triennial billing cycles. These plans are well priced considering the resources on each of them.
It also offers free SSL certificates on all plans, as well as free domain registration. This is possible on a few domain extensions and only on an annual subscription and above.
You can make an order using a credit card, PayPal, EFT, or check. It offers a 30-day money-back guarantee to customers ordering for the first time and whose order was processed using a credit card or PayPal.
Levation also provides free migration from another hosting provider if the control panel that you’re currently using is cPanel.
Customer support is via phone, knowledge base with tutorials, ticket, email, and mailing address. I sent a pre-sales inquiry via email and got my response the next day.
