Most users say the provider is quite ok, although there are sour comments saying there is a pretty big downtime due to SAN failures and system rebuilding.


Support

Instant Technical Live Support: No

Several support options are offered, the major ones being sales phone number (both home and international) and a live chat. However, sales hours are from 9.00am to 5.00pm GMT, Monday to Friday, and this is not very convenient.

However, they are also available in a live chat, however, not 24/7 either, or we lost our patience waiting.


Uk2 Summary Analysis by HRank

Uk2 got 4.8 HRank and appeared in the 109th position in 2018; 3.8 HRank with 191st position in 2019. Its performance left much to be desired, to be honest.

The provider’s uptime was very unstable in 2018. There were lots of downtime cases as low as 98% and 97%, which is not the result we expected. The most severe downtime could be seen in September and October 2018, Januar and February 2019.

Its response time stayed all together in the average range – 500ms600ms.

UK2 didn’t change the number of domains for 2 years.

UK2 is not on our recommendation list
