LoGate Technologies (aka Logitech Technologies) is one of the oldest Israeli internet companies. According to its Facebook page, it was founded in 2004, and has since become a popular name on the Israeli internet services landscape. LoGate/Logitech offers Linux and Windows web hosting services, WordPress hosting, and VPS, plus domain solutions, SEO, digital marketing, web development, and a lot more besides.
The LoGate website supports the Hebrew language.
Features and Ease of Use
LoGate provides five Linux hosting plans, four Windows hosting plans, two WordPress hosting plans, and VPS solutions based on clients’ required configurations. The Linux hosting plans provide you with:
- 100 MB to 3,000 MB storage
- 50 GB monthly traffic
- Ten mailboxes
- PHP 4/5
- Support for WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal
- Antivirus and antispam
- Custom error pages
- Free installation
LoGate provides ODBC support so that you can connect to any kind of database, but this is “old school” technology these days. Something more contemporary is the SSL certificates from some of the best companies, which secure your site and give your visitors confidence.
Something unique to LoGate is the LogateShop 6.0 software that implements one of the most professional and high-end virtual stores in Israel. For those interested in e-commerce, the Google- and Zap-optimized store could be of great interest.
Pricing and Support
LoGate’s Linux hosting plans are pricey compared with the market average. Annual and biennial billing cycles are available, but both are not available with all plans, so you need to check at the checkout. There is no money-back guarantee as far as I can see, and you can pay for plans only in Israeli shekels via Visa, Isracard, and Diners Club.
The customer support desk can be contacted by telephone, email, or online form from 9 am to 5 pm during the Israeli working week (Sunday to Thursday). 24/7 technical support is also available. Unfortunately, my online form submission seemed to fall on deaf ears, and there are no self-support resources as far as I can see.
