Why LX DEV hosting over regular hosting?

Start with the the environment

At first glance, you might think that our LX DEV developer hosting is no different to regular web hosting but there are important differences.

Our regular hosting is tuned to the needs of the many, and while equally capable, our developer hosting is tuned specifically to the needs of developers. It has developer focussed features and server limits and thresholds are tuned to expect and respond to those limits that our experience tells us that developers will hit, need and sometimes exceed.

By providing developer focussed hosting plans on a developer focussed hosting platform we know that we can provide the best environment with the power and flexibility that developers need, backed up by our legendary support.

Full control

What’s in a control panel? Well, most have features that allow you to perform fairly basic actions on your web site, such as create FTP users, mail account, use a file manager maybe change your DNS settings.

A good control panel will give you a bit more, and might include the ability to grant other users access to your panel, maybe install an SSL, view web stats and even make a backup.

Quite honestly, what you're really looking for is something that gives you complete control over everything you need to do as a developer, so you can configure your environment, upload your code and get to work.

But developers need a great control panel

A truly great control panel will give you complete control over your hosting. You’ll want to change PHP versions, change PHP processing engine, turn NGINX on or off, enter custom directives, tune PHP, view your error logs in real-time, optimise performance settings.

You’ll also want analytic extensions and SEO tools at your disposal and the ability to install Let’s Encrypt certificates to secure your site or application together with checking it performs well with built in Google PageSpeed insights.

If that wasn't enough you'd also need a built in, code ready editor and be able to use the control panel even if you were on a rare day off, mountain biking in a forest in Wales, with only just enough data to get by, and your boss has called you up because the goal posts just moved again.

Our LX Dev hosting, powered by Cloud Linux, Dells servers, and Plesk Onyx is everything Linux Developers need.

Cloud Linux plus Plesk Onyx

Why Cloud Linux

Cloud Linux provides the most stable environment to host multiple web sites as each site is isolated from others within it's own virtual environent.

This ensures that no one web site suffers from noisy neighbor syndrome and cannot be affected by anotehr web site suddenly consuming resources. This approach also ensures that each environent is also more secure and stable than a traditional "normal" linux environment.

Powerful and fast web servers are deployed to deliver the fastest and most efficient processing of web sites including
