Helping businesses get online
Great value domains and web hosting with everything you need to get online, all backed up by amazing UK support
History of LCN – the short version
Believe it or not we didn’t start out as web hosting and domain name gurus – back in 1999 our bag was web design.
One of the things that really bothered us in those days was the lack of quality hosting and domain name providers around to house our clients’ websites. Tired of expensive domain prices and servers with flaky uptime, we decided the best way to fix the problem was to do it ourselves, so LCN.com was born!
Since then we’ve gone from strength to strength and are proud to be one of the largest web hosts and registrars in the UK. In fact, many of the small team from the beginning are still here, all these years later.
In 2019, LCN.com became part of team.blue, a leading European digital enabler for companies and entrepreneurs. team.blue’s goal is to shape technology and provide powerful digital services for businesses worldwide, with local offices and teams present in ten European countries.
Helping small businesses get online is at the heart of everything we do here at LCN. Our goal is to cut the jargon and make creating and publishing a website a realistic prospect for everyone. We don’t think you should have to rely on a third-party designer just to have an online presence.
But getting your site online is only half the battle – the other challenge is making it a success! We give you a hand with this too, with hundreds of resources to help you reach the right audience including guides on SEO, Facebook for businesses, and Twitter Marketing – all thrown in for free.
To help us help you, we’ve made customer service and support a top priority. So you can chat to our UK-based support team by phone and email seven days a week.
Making it easy for non-technical small businesses to be successful online
Here’s what just some of our customers say about our service…
Our data centre
Network and connectivity
Our servers and systems are powered by the robust Juniper MX platform to interconnect our sites, while our access network combines Juniper EX series virtual chassis and Juniper QFX virtual chassis fabrics. It provides super low latency for lightning-fast load times, oodles of bandwidth and just like our data centre, has lots of resilience built in.
Everyone these days knows security is important. That goes for physical as well as electronic protection, so we’ve got all-areas CCTV, top-notch alarms and in-house information security experts keeping a watchful eye on everything 24/7.
Our Network Operations Centre is full of clever engineering types who keep a lookout over every aspect of the data centre; like power levels, temperature, humidity, smoke detection, water leaks… you name it, they look for it.
We use cutting edge detection technology to keep fire risks down to an absolute minimum. The VESDA system can detect even the tiniest amounts of smoke in the air, and we use inert gas IG55 fire suppressant.
