Frequently Asked Questions

How much does LCS Hosting cost?

It’s £30 GBP ($50 USD) per year or £20 GBP ($35 USD) without the domain name.

Can you help me build my website?

Yes! If you need help building your website and have something specific in mind contact us for a quote.

Is the bandwidth and storage really unlimited?

Yes! The only thing you need to keep in mind is if you’re using the built-in webmail, the amount of mail it can store is limited to 400mb. This can be upgraded, but if you download your mail you’re only limited by the storage on your computer.

Does my website have to link back to the LCS?

Linking to the LCS is at your discretion, but if you do… Thank you!

How secure is LCS Hosting?

Our platform is designed in such a way that if any server fails another server automatically and without delay takes over that server’s workload. For example, if one of our mail servers breaks down another server automatically comes online, with all the correct configuration, and takes over the work of the failed server. During this period no email is lost.

As well as this, all data is stored in two large network disk arrays. Data is automatically synchronised between the arrays so that in the event of an array failing the remaining array continues to serve data to the servers with no downtime.

What if I don’t want my LCS Hosting anymore?

All you have to do is email us and we will stop your regular payments or you can log in to PayPal and cancel from there. No questions asked and your site will be taken down at the end of your paid-for term.

Can I have LCS Hosting for free?

Yes and no… If you have a special project or you’re a charity, get in touch and maybe we can do you a deal. Or if you’re a member of hire an illustrator you can have as much hosting for free as you want.

Please allow up to 24 hours for your site to become active! Why is that?

We set each hosting package up individually so we know that everything works and is ready to go before you get your hands on it. Since we live in the UK, if you order your hosting between 9am GMT and 9pm GMT it might only take a couple hours to have your hosting ready to go. If you order your site at 2am GMT you might have to wait until the morning depending on how much coffee we’ve had to drink that day.
