About us

LotD Hosting

We are a hosting company that started out in 2004, slowly evolving into what we are today.

At heart we are an e-commerce web host. Our goal is to provide a quality service for new and small companies, as well as bigger companies wanting to expand to the online world. We will provide a service helping these parties grow and adjust to their new market. Of course our service is not limited to this audience. Personal sites, bigger companies and existing e-commerce websites are welcome too.

Personal sites should especially like the free sitebuilder with templates and the many preinstalled applications to quickly and easily set up a quality website. We provide a software package allowing you to continue developing offline and will soon be releasing various resources to help beginner as well as expert progress. Our staff will also gladly give advice on a variety of related subjects such as programming and marketing.

The main reason I listed small companies as our main target is due to the nature of our service. Our main product is a form of shared hosting readily prepared to provide e-commerce services. Our server cluster is especially designed to handle and balance the load it receives from the dynamic sales and customer systems used in e-commerce. Each server having it's own purpose, there is no interference between applications (mail, webserver, etc...) as one might experience on single server setups. Allowing us to provide a reliable quality service. We are also one of the few web hosts that provide daily end-user accessible backups free of charge and offer advice from our own e-commerce experience to our customers.

This too, however, is the reason why we cannot offer excessive amount of resources as one can find listed on many of today's web hosting sites. These companies, marketing through numbers, endanger their service by making promises they cannot uphold. We do not wish to compete with these and will continue to provide our services as they are: reliable, helpful and honest.

  • 1 Control Panel Server

  • 12 Linux Webservers (PHP5)
