UK Based Hosting Services

Hosting Specialists is based in the UK and offers good quality hosting to people throughout Europe.  They have a wide range of different hosting options to consider including shared, VPS and dedicated servers. One nice thing about this hosting provider is that they are very open about the details of their services.  For example, they provide details about the data center they use such as the type of power supply, including redundancy, and how their racks are laid out to help ensure proper cooling.  While this information may seem unimportant to some people, others will find it to be very valuable in determining which hosting provider to go with.

Most people are very happy with the overall level of service they get with Hosting Specialists and the fact that they can grow the hosting as they need it to ensure their site is always running smoothly.  If you're looking for hosting in Europe, you will want to make sure to consider this company.

Quality Hardware for Stable Hosting

Hosting Specialists operates in a great data center and uses good quality Dell servers powered by Intel CPUs.  No matter what hosting package you get, your data will be on good servers that are very reliable.  While they aren't the highest end hosting option out there, they do offer a good stable solution.  When looking on social media and other review locations the users don't complain about downtime, which is certainly a good sign.

Features

Easy to Understand Feature Lists

The features with this company are right in line with what you would expect to see from most hosting companies.  They have lots of different choices so you can get exactly what you need without paying for anything extra.  In addition, the different packages are laid out nicely to make it very easy to find the right package and understand what you are getting.

Shared hosting provides you with 5-40 gigs of disk space and 50-400 gigs of bandwidth.  All their servers have 1 gig per second port speeds as well, which is nice.  When you move up to VPS solutions you will get 100-250 gigs of disk space and 1-2.5TB of bandwidth.  This is quite nice, especially given their prices.  Finally, the dedicated servers use Intel CPUs and DDR3 RAM.  While not the highest end servers out there, they will provide you with enough power and control for most situations.

24/7 Tech Support

The support team is online 24/7 to help you with any issues you may be having.  They are fast to respond to tickets or phone calls, and you can also get help from their live chat feature.  There is also a nice knowledge base to provide you with documentation and other information about hosting that can help you to learn more about how things work so you can avoid problems.

Pricing

9

Reasonable Pricing Points

The pricing is quite reasonable for all their hosting packages.  They seem to have done a great job of balancing the features they offer with the prices they charge.  In addition, they give you enough different options to help ensure you can get all the power and control you need without having to over pay.  Some of their VPS solutions are very inexpensive, which makes this an attractive option compared to their shared hosting services.  This is especially true if you like being able to control your hosting server more directly.

User Friendly

Easy to Understand Hosting Packages

One nice thing about this company is that they lay everything out in a simple, easy to understand way.  This helps make it easier for those interested in their services to pick the right package.  This can actually help to save money too if users take the time to look through their options.  If you should need to talk to their support teams, they are available 24/7 and seem to be quite good at answering questions and providing other assistance as needed.

Summary

Overall Nice Hosting

This is a very nice hosting company to consider.  They have been in business quite a while and have a lot of nice features to offer.  While they lack the very high end hosting solutions, most people won't need that anyway so it is not something to be concerned about in most cases.

Pros:

  • Detailed Information on Data Center
  • Lots of Package Options
  • Good Prices

Cons:

  • No very high end servers

A few words from Hosting Specialists

Hosting Specialists is a web hosting company that mainly supplies for the UK and surrounding countries. That being said, our services are currently being used by people and businesses from around the world.

We have 24/7 support via help desk and phone (UK phone number) and all of our staff are from and live in the UK, meaning no outsourced, poor English support will be provided. Average response time ranges from 10-25 minutes currently.

The owner of the company has been in the hosting sector for over 5 years working for the technical team for a host and a datacentre in the UK.

Prices on our website for all our plans are priced as reasonably as possible without going over the top. We DO NOT offer silly packages such as "500TB bandwidth" or "unlimited bandwidth" for £2.50 per month. We all know this isn't possible. This allows us to sustain a profitable business while having reasonable prices.

If you want to be hosted by an affordable, knowledgeable and friendly company/team with a can do attitude, choose us today.
