HostingUK Review Visit provider Thumbnail

Background is a hosting company located in the United Kingdom, with the registered address in London and postal address in St Asaph (according to their contact information).

The company has been providing services in the sphere of hosting since 1998. At first, they offered web hosting only on Windows server platform. But they have developed their services throughout the years and now the company has all kinds of services from domain name registration and hosting to dedicated servers.

Offers and Pricing

They offer:

  • Shared and developer web hosting,
  • Cloud and dedicated servers,
  • Email and Office 365,
  • Domain registration,
  • Website builder (3d party, Parallels Plesk),
  • also they assist with website management in other ways.

To ensure the stability and safety of work, Hosting UK uses only special Dell servers that are able to provide high productivity during the whole day. In addition, Hosting UK uses their own data centers which means that the information of their clients is safe.

Prices for shared hosting start from £2.95 per month (1-year plan) – Personal Web plan. Four shared plans are offered with regard to a user’d needs. All prices are offered in GBP, which might be not very suitable for the international customers.

Support and Other Features

Interestingly enough, support options at are a bit limited, we have to admit. Phone UK based support team can be used but only during business hours (Monday – Friday 09:00 until 17:30).

And their “Step 3 – Ask us a question” 24/7 helpdesk option seems only to be available to existing customers exclusively; perspective ones have to wait till the morning (in the UK, apparently) to make a call and have to resort to the “Knowledgebase” until then. Surely, they can do better than that.

We have no personal experience with this provider, however, we hope the support is not overwhelmed by applications as the provider’s overall performance was quite good and not much to complain about.
