Website Hosting is extremely important and should be a decision that you and I make together to ensure proper website performance. Not all web hosts are created equal and even some of today’s most popular hosting providers aren’t all they’re hyped up to be, so don’t make your hosting decision alone.
I offer quality and affordable website hosting through LeighHost.com
LeighHost rents server space in a state-of-the-art, private data center located in Lansing, Michigan. This data center is manned twenty-four hours every single day by highly trained technicians.
The quality of our hosting is far superior to big budgets hosts like GoDaddy, HostGator, InMotion, BlueHost, and many more.

Website Hosting Frequently Asked Questions
I do not offer hosting on a month to month basis. The minimum hosting term you can purchase is 1 year and the maximum is 5 years. I apologize if you find this an inconvenience, however, it must be done to avoid a lot of issues and wasted time on both of our ends.
No, website maintenance is not included in the price of hosting, but is available at an additional cost. An added benefit of hosting with me is that I’ll have easy access to your website if you do ever need maintenance or other assistance.
Yes! LeighHost utilizes cPanel, the world’s most recognized and trusted control panel. Within cPanel, you’ll be able to setup as many custom email addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org) as you need varying on the plan you choose. I can even assist you with this if you need help and can send instructions on how to use your email address on the server.
Yes, even if you already have a domain registered somewhere, you can still host with LeighHost. You can simply update the name servers on your domain at your current registrar to point to your new LeighHost account or you can transfer your domain to LeighHost. You also have the option to register a new domain as well. It’s completely up to you!
Just like anywhere else, you will have your own billing and cPanel account where you’ll be able to access your website files, databases, statistics, emails, and much more. A lot of smaller hosting providers don’t provide this option which can make it difficult if you ever need to access your hosting account for any reason.
I understand this is a common concern with smaller, less-known hosting providers. If for any reason, LeighHost chose to cease operation, you would have plenty of time to find a new hosting provider and I would even assist in transferring your website to your new hosting provider.
I rent server space in a state-of-the-art, private data center located in Lansing, Michigan. This data center is manned twenty-four hours every single day by highly trained technicians to ensure your data is safe and your website is constantly running.
Unlike larger hosting providers, I do not overcrowd my servers, which is the biggest cause of slow website performance and downtime.
Additionally, everyone that hosts with me is someone that I’ve worked with directly for weeks at a time so I understand their intentions. With larger hosting providers, anyone can sign up for hosting at any time, even if they have malicious intentions. It only takes one bad apple out of a hundreds on an overcrowded server to slow down your website or worse, get it blacklisted. When that happens, the damage is done. You can help prevent this from happening by knowing which kind of people are utilizing your services.
