Avoid LeaseWeb at all Costs!!!
It has been a horrible experience hosting with LeaseWeb. I would advise customers and serious businesses to avoid them at all costs.
I was recommended LeaseWeb by a friend who manages IT infrastructure for a large UK university and uses LeaseWeb. I purchased a standard VPS to host an ecommerce website. The VPS did not come with the latest versions of WHM/Cpanel. After setting up the server and getting it ready for my ecommerce site, there was technical issue for which I reached out to LeaseWeb support. It went downhill from there, the technical support didn't offer any assistance but what they did astonished me – they completely wiped the server!!! This happened almost immediately after I contacted their support.
I then Googled reviews for LeaseWeb, which I should have done in the beginning. It seems it is within their common business practice to wipe client servers without cause or explanation!
I have now decided to terminate the VPS and have also relayed my experience back to to my friend from the UK university, who is now making plans to cancel 3 servers and 2 VPS which he hosts with LeaseWeb. Well done LeaseWeb!
