Lenka's List is a full-service website developer for authors. We are a one-stop resource for domain names, website hosting and design.

DOMAINS: All websites start with a domain name. Lenka's List is an approved domain re-seller and can help you find a good domain name that is available.

Note: Order a domain name through Lenka's List if you don't have one. (If you are already hosted, you already have a domain.)

HOSTING: All websites on the Internet need a host, or web server to run them. Lenka's List offers dedicated hosting to its clients. Our team handles all technical details of configuring your site on our high-speed servers and performs all behind the scenes activities including:

  • Daily backups
  • Monitoring web site health
  • Keeping software current and up-to-date
  • Technical Support

What are the key differences between dedicated hosting and shared hosting?

  • Sites Hosted on the Server: With a shared hosting package, there are other sites that are hosted on the server along with your website. A dedicated hosting plan at Lenka’s List means that your website is the only site hosted on the server.
  • Bandwidth or Disk Space: With shared hosting, the amount of disk space and bandwidth you are allotted is limited because there are others sharing the server. You will be charged if you surpass your allotted amount. With dedicated hosting at Lenka’s List, bandwidth and disk space are dedicated to you only so there is no sharing and no limitations on the amount of space available.
  • Costs: With shared hosting, server resources are shared among several users, so operating costs are divided up among the users making it cheaper. Lenka’s List dedicates the server solely to one user, it costs more.
  • Security: With shared hosting, the hosting company installs firewalls and server security applications and programs. As a dedicated host, Lenka’s List controls the security programs that are installed and there are less chances of acquiring viruses, malware and spyware. There is a higher risk with shared hosting because of others using the same server.
  • Blacklisting Of Website: On a shared server, there is more of a risk of being blacklisted by search engines if someone else on the server is spamming, which may get the entire server IP address blacklisted. On a dedicated server at Lenka’s List, you will not get blacklisted unless you engage in unethical internet practices.
  • Server Performance and Response Time: On shared hosting, a lot of traffic can be generated by others which could drain resources such as bandwidth. That could lead to slow response time and slow loading time. This does not happen on a dedicated server at Lenka’s List because you are not sharing resources.

Note: Hosting with Lenka's List is optional. If you already have a host, simply choose the option, "My Site is Already Hosted"during ordering. If you have been set up elsewhere and wish to move to Lenka's List, just let us know.

WEB DESIGN: With a great domain name and a good hosting plan (optional if you already are hosted), it's time to build your website. Lenka's List uses open source WordPress to create author websites. We have 13 themes available that allow for many variations in design.
