Here is our Lunarpages review 2018. What is lunarpages? Did you ever hear this name before? The chances are less unless you are very familiar with hosting companies. Lunarpages is a small hosting company which only hosted around 150000 websites on their servers. But don’t think they are too small. There is a reason we selected this hosting to give it a try because lunarpages has the biggest plus point. Many big technology companies and tech giants hosted their website with lunar hosting.
Want to know who are all they? There is a huge list, but I can tell you a few names that you can understand very easily because they are familiar with you. These big customers of lunarpages include Microsoft, Dell, Citrix, Yokohama and General Motors. Now you may have a respectful look towards Lunarpages, isn’t it? But there are a lot that not yet revealed. We will take a close look at Lunarpages Hosting.
Some Basic Knowledge about LunarPages Web Hosting Company
Lunarpages Hosting Plans and Pricing
Lunarpages providing many types of hosting solutions including Windows hosting, Linux hosting, VPS hosting and Semi-dedicated server hosting. Since most of our readers are looking for medium requirements, we are concentrating on their Shared Hosting plan only.
One of the most sold hosting plan that lunarpages providing was their Basic Hosting plan, which starts at a monthly price of $4.95/month. But this is a tricky way of cheating its customers. You will get their hosting at $4.95 only if you are ready to pay for next 60 months in advance. You can see it below. Lunarpages Basic Hosting plan includes an unlimited package of bandwidth, storage, Subdomains, Email accounts and FTP Accounts.
You can have a look at the below image to differentiate with other plans provided by Lunarpages.
Uptime and Load Time Test of LunarPages Web Hosting
♦Uptime is Really Good
We hosted a test website on luarpages basic hosting just to check their uptime and load time. Uptime result really gave a surprise to us by providing a 100% uptime for last 30 days. They are good in uptime. Even many premium hosting companies are not able to give 100% uptime in 2017.
♦Load Time is the Worst
The ugliest truth about lunarpages hosting is, they are maintaining very slow servers. The time taking to load the web page is very high and they are not able to solve that issue yet. Our websites home page is just 1.9 MB, that is the normal size we used to test every hosting, but what lunarpages given us was the worst load time we have seen in 2017. We have given the test result below.
LunarPages Server Quality
According to the information we gained, Lunarpages have more than 2600 servers including 2500 live servers for hosting their client websites. They are adding an average of 5-7 servers monthly for giving better performance to their new customers without affecting the performance of old hosted websites.
Intel Xeon 3.2GHz Hyperthreaded processor with 4GB Memory and 5 * 73 hard drive kits. They have the ability to back up entire website data on a daily basis.
LunarPages C-Panel Reviewed
Instead of using a regular, nice looking Cpanel like Bluehost or HostGator, Lunarpages preferred to make their own LCPC panel that is little complicated for the first-time usage.
Editor’s Note: “The C-panel we are using in many hosting providers have not belonged to them. C-panel is an individual software which created by C-panel Inc. All web hosts are not belonged them to provide better and easy control panel to their customers”
The problem with LCPC control panel is, only newly joined customers are qualified to use the facility. If you are an old client, you can only use the old c-panel.
The Lunarpages Customer Support
Lunarpages has mainly three types of customer support and a support forum. They are trying to solve customers’ issues through, E-mails, contact forms, and via direct phone calls. Do they have an awesome support?
In 2010, lunarpages is considered as one of the best hosting providers on the planet. But what happened after that? They lose popularity and now they have only hosted 150000 clients. And the secret is, most of their clients are not happy with their service. Most of them are sticking with lunarpages since they have paid for a long term. What reduced the popularity of lunarpages? Our answer is their worst customer support.
In the above paragraph, I have mentioned about the speed issue. The load time is very high and that’s why we decided to contact customer care. But our experience was very bad. They don’t even know how to respond politely.
You can read many Lunarpages reviews on the internet. Everyone is pointing towards their customer support. Negligence towards simple issues made customers unhappy and their simple issues become a severe case and peoples started to leave lunarpages.
LunarPages Review- My Final Verdict
Lunarpages is only good if you found a Time machine and you could travel to past and host a website in Lunarpages. It was a good option to host websites till 2012, but after that Lunarpages become worthless. The real problem is, even while they are not providing a good service, they don’t even reduce their price. It will better if you found another hosting provider to host your website in 2018.
Lunarpages - Our Rating
While looking into the Overall performance, Lunarpages will not be a good option for Hosting a Small Business website or Blog in 2017.
