This host is the pirates heaven !

Long story short : We wanted to report and trigger a DMCA Takedown on a website that did copy 25 ARTICLES (word by word) from our website.
Since their "abuse form" can only handle 500 characters we couldn't do ANYTHING.

We tri...Read Moreed to contact "abuse@lws.fr" NOT WORKING, and we've got an "Undelivered Mail"...

We tried to contact "contact@lws.fr" NOT WORKING and we've got and "Undelivered Mail"...


I'm not a client of LWS.fr, but since when reporting piracy had to be so hard !

Literally the only (and I mean it) the ONLY web host provider that (until this moment) we struggle to report piracy. ALL THE OTHERS did their job in less than 48 hours and everything ran smoothly with them.

Reporting piracy is even easy with (the giant) google than this lws.fr.

By the way : Only my "reliability, User Friendly and Support" are true scores. Don't consider my other scores (Pricing and Features) since i'm not an LWS.FR client.

Expert Review

Expert Overview

Lots of Hosting Options

LWS is a France based hosting company that has a lot of different options to consider.  Their site is a little cluttered, and the English translation doesn't work too well so if you speak English only, this company isn't likely for you.  That being said, however, their hosting is fairly nice compared to many other companies.

They offer both Windows and Linux and they have all sorts of different hosting options, with the exception of dedicated servers.  They have been in business for a while and have a good reputation for quality from what I have been able to find so far.

Uptime & Reliability

100% Uptime Guarantees

They use good hardware and seem to keep it configured properly at all times to avoid outages.  They also offer a good 100% uptime guarantee for all their services so you aren't likely to experience any significant outages.

Features

Mostly Standard Features

As you go through the different features offered by this company you will find that they are mostly the typical features you will find with any hosting company.  They do have a lot of them, which makes it nice if you want to start out with shared hosting, for example, and have the option to move up to VPS solutions later when your site gets bigger.

They have both Windows and Linux hosting packages.  They also have a nice site creation tool that will help you to make a nice looking site without much work at all on your end.  The limits on disk space only apply to a few packages and they are quite generous so they aren't anything to be concerned about.

Another nice feature this company provides is helping you choose which package is right for you. They identify which type of sites will work best on each package option so you can be confident that you're getting the right package for your specific site.

Support

Good Tech support Options

The tech support can be easily reached through their ticketing system or online chat feature.  They are staffed 24/7 and have a good reputation for responding fast and getting your servers running properly if there is a problem.  Even if you just have a question, they will answer it right away.

They do have some nice documentation about their services that can help you to learn more and avoid problems.  They aren't exactly 'self-help' documents, but they are very nice to have available.

Pricing

Low to Average Pricing

The pricing for each package is quite competitive.  Some of them are very low and others are just average, but overall there isn't much to complain about in this area.  They give you what you pay for and a little more, so the price really shouldn't be an issue for anyone considering hosting with LWS.

Summary

Quality Hosting for Your Site

Overall, this is a good company to consider if you're looking for hosting in France.  They have been in business long enough to be able to serve you well and have done a good job at keeping their prices reasonable.  They can handle all but the largest of sites without a problem.

Pros:

  • Lots of hosting choices
  • Good list of features
  • 100% uptime guarantee

Cons:
