When it comes to choosing the right web hosting for your website, there are a few things to consider. From the size of your website to your budget and technical expertise, finding the perfect hosting option can be a daunting task. Here at LCN we offer a variety of hosting options that can help your business succeed. By understanding your needs and goals, you can choose the hosting option that is right for you and your business.


Web Hosting

We offer three different web hosting plans – Start-up, Business, and Multisite – to cater to the specific needs of businesses and individuals. Our plans are affordable, and we even offer a no-quibble 30-day money-back guarantee. Whether you need to host a simple website with email or unlimited websites on one plan, we have a solution that fits your needs.

With our shared hosting plans, you can enjoy features like free email, super-fast load times and one-click software installations such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla. Our Web Hosting plans are great for those just starting out, as they require little technical expertise and are friendly on the bank account.



WordPress Hosting

WordPress hosting is a specialised type of hosting that is designed specifically for WordPress websites. Our WordPress hosting plans come pre-installed with the latest version of WordPress, free email and access to 1000’s of plugins and themes. You can enjoy features like automatic backups, a free SSL certificate, and unlimited bandwidth, making this option being perfect for those who want to focus on their website’s content rather than the technical details of hosting.

If you want even more time to focus on running your business, our Managed WordPress plans include automatic WordPress and plugin updates, improved website performance and simple one-click restores should anything go wrong. What’s more, you can get the managed plans for the same price as our regular WordPress plans – check them our here:



Virtual Private Server (VPS) Hosting

With our VPS hosting plans, you have your own virtual server that is not shared with other websites. This means that you have access to more resources, including CPU, RAM, and storage, which can improve your website’s performance.

Choose from Managed SSD VPS or Self-managed SSD VPS hosting, both of which offer more flexibility and control over your hosting environment. With a self-managed plan, you will be responsible for managing everything from the set-up right through to the daily monitoring and maintenance, so it’s best suited to those who have experience of running a server.

If you don’t have experience of running a server or want one of our server experts to perform the initial set up and look after monitoring and backups for you, our managed plans would be a better option.

All of our VPS hosting plans are a great choice for businesses that are growing and need more resources and performance than shared hosting can provide.



So, which hosting option is right for you?

It depends on your specific needs and goals. If you’re just starting out and have a small website or personal blog, one of our Web Hosting plans may be the best option. For businesses that are growing and need more resources and performance, VPS hosting may be a better choice. If you have a WordPress website, our WordPress hosting plans provide a hassle-free option that is specifically tailored to WordPress websites.

If you’re still not sure what hosting would be best for you, call our Customer Support Team on 0345 363 3637 and they’ll be happy to talk through the different options with you.
