Very responsive hosting for UK customers
QuickHostUK is exactly what you would think of when reading their name, they offer quick and speedy hosting services, primarily to European customers, though they don’t have a specific location restriction, so you can sign up from anywhere. Rather than trying to be a one-in-all website, they stick to what they’re good at: fast servers. QuickHostUK has two primary services and two secondary services. Primarily, they offer shared, managed, and reseller hosting services, as well top-notch Virtual Private Servers. On the back side, they also allow you to purchase domain names and SSL certificates through their platform, all well priced and high quality.Read More
Uptime & Reliability
Extremely reliable hosting options
Because their VPS are as popular as they are, QuickHostUK is as reliable as they get. They are registered in England and Wales and actually include their registration number, you have a number to call them if you have any problems, they have a money back guarantee which virtually means its a no risk transaction. Unlike any other host, they offer a service allowing you to reduce server load and thereby increasing speeds and decreasing downtime — the definition of reliability.
Extensive list of very nice features
They go above and beyond to stand out when it comes to their features. First of all, they offer what’s called load balancing, where if a server fails, traffic is equally distributed among the remaining servers. It’s a great feature for a ridiculously low price, and most other hosts don’t seem to offer it. On the shared hosting front, they only offer CloudLinux OS’s, which while is a great operating system, it doesn’t give you the flexibility if you’re looking for Windows. All shared hosting plans include CloudFlare, free shared SSL certificates, and off-site backups. In the meanwhile, their fully managed business plans host your website on a secure server, while doing virtually no work at all!
On the VPS side of things, you get to choose between three main systems: Linux (Running CloudLinux), a Windows VPS server, or an ISPConfig VPS. All three, especially the Linux and ISPConfig are comparatively priced and come with all the features you expect from a high quality server, such as UNLIMITED monthly bandwidth and advanced system monitoring.
Good support with limited options
While they don’t have a 24/7 live chat system, they have a local UK number to contact for support. In addition, most problems are solved through their ticket system which they promise is fast and efficient. Because they value their customers, they spent the time creating a HUGE knowledgeable that answers anything from e-mail to cPanel to server management — half of the questions you may have are already answered.
Their basic CloudLinux hosting plans begin at only £0.99 per month, all while including a minimum of 10GB of bandwidth. That’s incredibly priced, especially for the CloudLinux OS. Even for the 0.99 plan, you get unlimited add-on domains, e-mail accounts, and databases. If you need extra hard disk space or bandwidth, you can request it “a la carte”, allowing you to only pay for what you need.
While QuickHostUK’s managed business web hosting plans may seem a little expensive on the surface — beginning at £79/month — it is actually competitively priced, especially for what you get. If you’re looking for a reseller account, they are not the most affordable (£24.99 - £69.99), but you can count on high quality servers you and your potential customers will like. In addition, they offer what’s called load balancing, where if a server fails, traffic is equally distributed among the remaining servers. This in turn dramatically increases the speed and performance of your page. These plans begin at only £9.99 monthly.
On the VPS front, their prices are also on the competitive front, especially the CloudLinux ones, that start at only £5.99 monthly with their unlimited plan. In addition, the iSPConfig also starts at the same price while their Windows VPS are a little more expensive — starting at £16.99.
Very nice hosting if you are targeting a UK audiance
They are called QuickHost and provide exactly that, quick and efficient servers, service, and support. Most of their setups are instant if not within 24 hours, and they offer upmost reliability for competitive prices. While their shared hosting plans are extremely cheap and worth their value, they don’t have dirt cheap prices. It costs money to hire experienced support staff, high quality servers, and then maintain them virtually every single day, and that’s why the increased reliability gained is worth it the extra cost.
