Features and Ease of Use
LVPSHosting offers relatively basic shared hosting services with scalable options that allow you to support multiple domains. Below are some of the features of their shared hosting services:
- Robust bandwidth
- Supports three to ten domains
- Application installer
- Free data migrations
- Weekly data backups
- 99.99% network uptime guarantee
You won’t find a ton of advanced features offered on this host, but they do have a couple of features that make them stand out. Below are some of their value-added features:
- RAID10 storage
- Legal adult content accepted
- Mailing lists allowed
- DNS management
- 24/7 traffic monitoring
- Tier III data center based in the Netherlands
For those of you wanting to host adult content, this is a host worth investigating. Provided it is legal content, you shouldn’t have a problem. This is a better option than using an adult services hosting company that typically has suspect support and high fees.
If you’re a beginner, you can use their application installer for WordPress and other popular CMSes. They don’t offer a website builder. Otherwise, you can upload your files via FTP and cPanel.
Pricing and Support
LVPSHosting offers four different shared hosting plans with all of the features listed above. Below are the primary differences between plans.
A couple of things I like about these plans are that you can host multiple domains on all plans and you also get rarely-found email marketing features such as mailing lists. Most shared hosting services provide basic email services only.
The storage is adequate at the rates charged, particularly considering they’re RAID10 arrays. However, notice that if you max out your domains, you’ll only have about a gig or less of storage for each website. For a single website, most of these plans are fine. If you find the storage on these shared hosting plans insufficient, however, you can always opt for their VPS or dedicated server plans.
Pricing is pretty average, but you don’t get a free domain or SSL certificates, so plan those costs into your budget. All plans come with a 30-day money back guarantee.
LVPSHosting offers solid support with telephone, live chat, and email channels available. Customers can also submit a ticket to support through their client portal. Unfortunately, they lack a true knowledge base as the link to their knowledge base redirects you to their blog.
