LeaseWeb Introduction

LeaseWeb is one of the largest hosting providers in the world, with divisions in the Netherlands, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, and the United States. They are part of the OCOM Group and have been providing hosting services for businesses since 1997, focusing on dedicated servers, cloud-based private servers, and CDN services.

Services and Specializations

LeaseWeb specializes in business products, with an emphasis on powerful, dedicated servers. They have several server configurations available with single, dual, or quad processor machines. Machines can be fully customized based on your RAM, storage, and bandwidth requirements.

They have a large inventory of servers ready to handle any project, whether your company needs a single server or several connected servers for a large-scale operation, which can be setup and ready to deploy in as little as one day. You can also select the location of your server within their world-wide network of datacenters.

If you need a fully-dedicated, cloud-based server, they also offer Bare Metal Servers, which are pre-configured and can be up and running in as little as one hour. While these cannot be customized to the same degree as their dedicated servers, they are still physical, single-tenant servers, and because they are cloud-based, they provide the option for quick upscaling when necessary.

If you don’t require your own physical server, they also offer four levels of virtual private servers (VPS), depending on the number of CPU cores, RAM, storage space, and traffic allowance you require. All of their virtual servers provide redundant data storage and an SSD caching layer to handle performance spikes, as well as a free firewall for data protection. Just like with a dedicated server, you have complete control over every aspect of the VPS.

They also offer virtualization solutions for companies that need full control over their private cloud environment, including Apache CloudStack and VMware servers.

Colocation solutions are also available, including rack units, private racks, and private cages. Their colocation services included multiple security layers and 24/7 on-site technical support.

For companies that need more than one solution, they also offer the unique ability to combine dedicated servers, cloud computing, and/or colocation into create highly-customized hosting package.

LeaseWeb also offers CDN services in pay-as-you-go or enterprise options, depending on whether you need a short-term performance increase or an overall bandwidth increase for your company. Their CDN network is designed to handle both large files, such as video, and small objects, such as banner advertisements, and includes built-in anti-hotlink protection and free SSL certificates installation. Prices vary based on the amount of traffic you require.


LeaseWeb has datacenters located in the Netherlands, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, and the United States. Their facilities are ISO certified, meaning they are fully compliant with current security and audit guidelines, in order to ensure the privacy of your data. They also feature multiple levels of redundancy for connectivity, power, and cooling.

Where LeaseWeb truly stands out is their network capabilities, which is particularly important for companies that require high bandwidth capacities and high speed connections. Their network consists of 57 points of presence and 36 internet exchanges, allowing them to provide customers with 5Tbps bandwidth capacity.

Support and Customer Service

LeaseWeb provides 24/7, on-site technical support, via phone, email, or Live Chat. They also have an extensive knowledgebase available for customers who prefer to troubleshoot issues themselves. Guaranteed response times for support requests start at 24 hours, but faster response times are available with higher-level support plans, down to 30 minute SLAs for their platinum support clients.

LeaseWeb understands the needs of their business customers to have a higher level of control and personalization over their services, so they offer several backend features to allow easier access to turn on and off or reinstall servers, setup notifications, manage billing, and even integrate their API into your company’s own control system.
