We don't charge you for success. We will always give you as much bandwidth as possible and stop bad guys (and girls) from abusing it.
Why pay to speak to a bot? Or worse, a help site? We talk like real, actual humans to you and try to avoid tech-talk (unless you fancy it, then we'll do it - no problems). Just chat or email and we'll get on the case.
Many web hosts show you big tables with lots of techie things to compare and feel good about. Ultimately this is meaningless and we will give you as much power as possible all of the time. Need even more? No problem, just add extra.
Don't pay for something that should be part of the service. With us, you can rest assured that daily backups are taken and securely kept so you can revert to a previous version if things get messed up for some reason.
Good to know you can go back to previous versions of a site. We also like to make sure sites are available always and have paranoid-level plans that keep your stuff online.
Hackers can be horrible, especially when they deface your customer's site or run off with your data. We encrypt as much as possible, keep sensitive data it in the UK and EU to comply with the rules.
FREE SSL Certificates
We can provide certificates that work in all browsers, provided free of charges via the Let's Encrypt initiative. Why pay for something you should get for free?
FREE Cloudflare Protection
Cloudflare hosts your website's addresses only (nameservers) and DNS details, as well as optimise performance and protect it from the bad guys (and girls).
FREE Email Account
We run our own mail server with contact and calendar, so you don't have to worry where else to put stuff safely. Upgradable to secure Protonmail, or Google Apps and Office 365.

Take our comparison with a pinch of salt - this is to get our value proposition across and is not aimed to be scientific. The web hosting market is complex and we are happy to answer any questions you may have when comparing offers. We will be open and honest at all times and happily admit to it when we cannot do something. Generally, we aim to offer the best value for money - not necessarily be the lowest priced.
Most managed providers - in which we include reseller hosting plans - will offer something 'unlimited', which sounds great until you discover the performance is pants or the site won't load at all just when you need it most. Or backups are only taken once a week (if at all). Or that you are limited in ways you never imagined: like having to buy their SSL certificates, which could be free and even installed for you with our offer.
Unlimited means ‘as much as we feel is fair’; connections is usually throttled and if you fall foul of their ‘fair usage policy’ you will be asked to upgrade or leave.

“I wanted people like me to have it easier after seeing how much frustration technical issues can make.
