The UK2 Group is a hosting company operating since 1998 in Great Britain, and currently based in start-up territory of Shoreditch, London.
Now it is one of the nation’s largest hosting services. UK2 owns a number of smaller web hosting service providers.
Offers and Pricing
Its scope of activities is pretty standard:
Website Builder (powered by a 3d party),
VPS Cloud and SSD VPS,
Uk2offers a variety of plans, which differ in price and functionality and hence suit different categories of users.
Some say it is a bit pricey, but for first-timers only, because there are quite a number of discounts.
Support and Other Features
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.
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.

Report for 2108
# in TOP
Uk2 got 4.8HRank and appeared on the108thposition in 2018. Its performance left much to be desired, to be honest.
The providers 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.
Its response time stayed altogether in the average range – 500ms – 600ms.
Downtime problems seem to have affected the customers: the provider lost many domains since September 2018.
