Quality hosting for all types of sites
LVPSHosting has been around for quite a long time, and they boast over 30 years of experience on their staff. They offer a wide range of different hosting options including shared, VPS and dedicated servers. All of their hosting options are focused on providing good stable solutions for just about any type of website you own.
The company rents data center space from "Dataplace." This is located in Albasserdam, Netherlands. The data center itself is a Tier 3 location, which means it is set up to provide very high quality hosting to your site. They have fully redundant power supplies so there is almost no risk of an outage from power loss. They also have multiple network connections for added reliability.
The data center uses 'green' cooling to help save energy and be more environmentally friendly. Overall this company is a great option for anyone who is looking to have their sites hosted in this part of the world. They are well established and have even won the "Top Pick Web Host" award in 2012 from the WHS Team.
Uptime & Reliability
Very stable hosting at all levels
This company takes pride in the stability that they offer. They do have a standard 99.9% uptime guarantee, but that is really just a marketing ploy anyway for most companies. This company really does work hard to keep your site up and running at all times.
This starts with the high quality data center that they have their servers housed in. This data center has excellent security and lots of redundancy built in to avoid any outages. The stability continues with their high quality support teams and overall fast response times with any type of outage. Even at the shared hosting I did not find any customers complaining about excessive downtime.
All the standard features and some nice extras
When you look through all the differnet hosting packages you will quickly see that there is really nothing that is missing. They mostly have standard options at all the different levels. For shared hosting you can start with 3 gigs of disk space and 50 gigs of bandwidth at their lowest level, and move up to 9Gigs disk space and 150 gigs bandwidth.
Other nice features include cPanel for shared hosting accounts as well as DirectAdmin, which provides a nice user interface for managing most functions. They also have multiple one-click install scripts available through the Softaculous system.
As you move up to VPS or dedicated hosting you'll see that you have a wide range of different features to choose from both for the types of hardware and the software options too.
Good support 24/7
The support provide by this company is quite good. When you call them they are able to quickly respond to problems and get you back up and running. They have 24/7/365 emergency support (for true outages only). They don't provide general help during the off hours, but their technicians are there through phone, email and live chat.
They also provide a very nice knowledge base to provide you with some simple step by step guides on how to fix things on your own.
All the prices for their different hosting packages are right in line with what you would expect to see based on the features you get. You can range from $3.95 per month for the entry level shared hosting, all the way up to $283.99 for a dedicated server. Of course, the higher you go in price the better the features will become.
I should mention that for most entry level sites, the lowest level hosting package will be more than enough. They really do include everything the average site will need at this level so it is a great hosting deal.
Great hosting for most any site
Overall this is a very good company to work with. I found almost no negative comments on social media and other locations, which is a very impressive feat for a hosting company. In addition, their services have been around for quite a while and they have managed to remain privately owned, which is always a good sign.
