A survey of Lyve Host

We, at, have selected 'Lyve Host' to be our current domain and hosting provider. This is why we suppose that this succinct assessment of 'Lyve Host' is probably going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the Globe, because the mere truth is that 'Lyve Host' presently offers domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lyve Host' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Services

The first detail we, at, have noted is the reasonable prices of the shared web space hosting packages supplied by 'Lyve Host'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting plans furnished by 'Lyve Host' are powered by a custom built, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by an individual bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have enormous problems with, because cPanel is a single server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web site hosting vendors are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to devise their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud web space hosting solution. With a shared web hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus retaining the web hosting price amazingly low (because a lot of users are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really require, escaping a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end webspace hosting package that cannot host your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web site grows. So, you save cash that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still new. Every webspace hosting plan delivered by 'Lyve Host' contains an online site building tool and more than forty widely used script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'Lyve Host' provides shared hosting services in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European server farms - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. In this way, almost the whole Earth is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable website hosting service at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting services supplied 'Lyve Host' are really well stocked and come at a very affordable price (starting from $5.83 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a VPS server may appear problematic to handle. That's perhaps why 'Lyve Host' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main American data center facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to handling a standard shared site hosting account through a site hosting CP tool. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting package such as a free-of-charge site builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting accounts. When compared to a shared website hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not come with server root access (we, at, think of this as a minor inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are administered through the same hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web site hosting packages. This indicates that a well-known graphical user interface is offered to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and reserves than a virtual private hosting server can give them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful ultramodern servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the private virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Lyve Host' can be dubbed as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Fast package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Lyve Host' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' requirements, 'Lyve Host' provides a number of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the quick and stable work of any kind of website. According to 'Lyve Host', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server packages provided by 'Lyve Host' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server arrives with free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Lyve Host' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a small minus, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the outstanding point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Lyve Host' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
