LWS is a France based hosting company that has a lot of different options to consider. Their site is a little cluttered, and the English translation doesn’t work too well so if you speak English only, this company isn’t likely for you. That being said, however, their hosting is fairly nice compared to many other companies.
They offer both Windows and Linux and they have all sorts of different hosting options, with the exception of dedicated servers. They have been in business for a while and have a good reputation for quality from what I have been able to find so far.
Uptime & Reliability
100% Uptime Guarantees
They use good hardware and seem to keep it configured properly at all times to avoid outages. They also offer a good 100% uptime guarantee for all their services so you aren’t likely to experience any significant outages.
Mostly Standard Features
As you go through the different features offered by this company you will find that they are mostly the typical features you will find with any hosting company. They do have a lot of them, which makes it nice if you want to start out with shared hosting, for example, and have the option to move up to VPS solutions later when your site gets bigger.
They have both Windows and Linux hosting packages. They also have a nice site creation tool that will help you to make a nice looking site without much work at all on your end. The limits on disk space only apply to a few packages and they are quite generous so they aren’t anything to be concerned about.
Another nice feature this company provides is helping you choose which package is right for you. They identify which type of sites will work best on each package option so you can be confident that you’re getting the right package for your specific site.
Good Tech support Options
The tech support can be easily reached through their ticketing system or online chat feature. They are staffed 24/7 and have a good reputation for responding fast and getting your servers running properly if there is a problem. Even if you just have a question, they will answer it right away.
They do have some nice documentation about their services that can help you to learn more and avoid problems. They aren’t exactly ‘self-help’ documents, but they are very nice to have available.
Low to Average Pricing
The pricing for each package is quite competitive. Some of them are very low and others are just average, but overall there isn’t much to complain about in this area. They give you what you pay for and a little more, so the price really shouldn’t be an issue for anyone considering hosting with LWS.

Tries to scam you with high fees once you have no option but to pay!
Renewed my domain 1 day late becuse THEIR systems have issues. Most registrars charge around 25 eur for reactivation of my domain type, but they charged 100 eur, 4 times more, for no reason! Never trust a company that tries to take advantage of their customers, regardless of how cheap it is, just choose with a reputable company with fair pricing.. in the end you'll save money :)
Hello, I'm sorry for the facts you report, we tried to reach you by phone and mail without success. I invite you to initiate or continue the contact with our teams for a proposal about your situation. The amount of the fees is partly fixed by the registrar, from the date of expiry, depending on the extension of the domain. All the LWS team remain at your disposal and wishes you a good day.
The support is not great at all. They advertise 24/7 but they are only reachable for support during business hours. Support technicians are clueless and keep sending you links to thei unfinished guides. Most technicians have no clue what they are doing and never fully answered to my questions.
Lots of DNS issues as well I had an add on website that kept pointing to the old dns even though I had made the dns changes multiple times. No support was provided on their end for a week until I decided to switch host.
If support and reliability is a criteria I really don't recommend signing up for this hosting company
Overall I am very happy with the hosting. I signed up for the shared package and it has been very stable. For shared hosting, they have got to be one of the best options in France. Make sure you watch the amount of disk space you will need as entry level packages are small.
I signed up with this company because they had great prices and pretty nice options on their VPS hosting. I have been with them for a long time and they have always been very reliable. The prices have stayed low and I really have no complaints
