Polish hosting provider LH.pl specializes in cheap hosting solutions that use a custom control panel rather than one of the popular ones such as cPanel. I was pleased to receive a pre-sales support response within a day.

Overview

LH.pl main page

Polish hosting provider LH.pl was founded in 2002 to provide shared hosting, cloud hosting, domain registration, and SSL certificates. Its servers sit in Warsaw and its website publishes prices in Polish zloty.

Features and Ease of Use

The four shared hosting packages — Orange, Kiwi, Mango, and Apple — differ mainly in disk space (from 5 GB to 100 GB). All the plans include unlimited monthly bandwidth, email accounts, MySQL databases, FTP accounts, domains, and subdomains. And they include these features as standard:

  • Custom control panel
  • SSD storage
  • Daily backups
  • Cron jobs
  • Free SSL certificate
  • 99.5% uptime guarantee
  • Free website migration

Rather than offering one of the popular control panels such as cPanel or Plesk, this host provides a custom control panel to manage all aspects of your hosting via a user-friendly interface. You can administer your website files, FTP accounts, email accounts, domains, databases, backup intervals, and more.

There is no included application installer but the control panel is compatible with leading application installers such as Softaculous. You can install some applications, like WordPress, directly from the control panel, and there are tutorials to tell you how to do it.

Hosted websites sit on SSD storage that is faster and more reliable than traditional HDD storage.

Pricing and Support

LH.pl’s hosting plans are surprisingly cheap compared with the European average price, and you can pay for them by bank transfer, credit/debit card, and possibly other methods, on billing cycles from one to five years. There is no money-back guarantee as far as I know.

This host’s website includes a well-populated knowledge base that covers most major topics. If this doesn’t answer all your questions, you can summon one-to-one support by telephone, ticket, email, or live chat. Although the live chat is almost always unavailable, I received a reply to my ticket submission within 24 hours:

Bottom line on LH.pl

I’m willing to overlook some of LH.pl’s flaws — such as the lack of a popular control panel and application installer — because of the low prices it charges. And although it wasn’t as efficient as live chat, I was happy to be able to summon a pre-sales support response by submitting a ticket.

Pros

  • Free SSL certificate
  • SSD storage
  • 99.5% uptime guarantee
  • Affordable prices

Cons

  • No cPanel or Softaculous
  • A limited range of products
