Some say it is a bit pricey, but for first-timers only, because there are quite a number of discounts.

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 got 4.8 HRank and appeared in the 109th position 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 – 500ms600ms.
  • Downtime problems seem to have affected the customers: the provider lost many domains since September 2018.
