The worst company I have come across in my 20 years as a professional web developer

The server space WHUK provides is actually OK, but as soon as you need their tech support or customer services you will find yourself wondering how on earth can this company be in business. This is the worse of the worse. It isn't just a poor level of service: it is simply PITIFUL.

Uptime & Reliability

99.95% uptime Guarantee

You'll get a very nice 99.95% uptime guarantee for your hosting with this company, which is very nice.  It is higher than most other companies in the hosting industry can offer today and they seem to be able to keep this promise.  You can be confident in the stability of this company thanks to their great data center, higher end hardware and overall good customer service and tech support.

Features

Easy Hosting Options

As you look through the different hosting features they have available you will quickly see that they lay everything out in a simple and easy to understand way.  For shared hosting, you can pick from cPanel (Linux) hosting, Windows hosting, or hosting made specifically for WordPress users.  In each category there is a table with four hosting potions to choose from.  This makes it easy to understand exactly what you're getting and how much you'll pay.  Shared hosting generally starts at 2 gigs of disk space and 10 gigs of bandwidth and goes up from there, which is nice.  You also get a free domain name with any shared hosting package.

When you move up to VPS hosting solutions you will also have several options based on what operating system you want and things like that.  Within each category you can pick from four specific packages.  They are all quite nice, starting at 1 vCPU core and moving up to 6.  RAM ranges from 1 to 6 gigs and disk space is 30-120 gigs.  They allow you to choose whether you want a traditional hard drive for your VPS, or a solid state drive.  Personally I always recommend solid state drives for their added speed and stability.

Dedicated servers have fewer options, but they are still quite nice.  They run on Intel CPUs with 4 or 8 cores.  For RAM you can get 8-16 gigs and disk space is either 1TB SATA (two of them) or 2 240 gig SSDs.

Overall the features from this company are quite nice and will be able to meet the needs of anyone who needs web hosting.

Support

Responsive Tech Support

The tech support with this company is quite good. They can be reached through a phone number, ticketing system, live chat or email.  They are also somewhat active on social media, though this is not the ideal way to get help with an issue.  You'll also have access to a lot of very nice documentation and other self-help options to help ensure you can learn what you need and avoid any common issues with hosting.

Pricing

Fair Pricing

The pricing from this company is quite reasonable at every level.  As I was looking through the different packages I didn't see any that were listed as very cheap or overpriced, which is nice to see.  Many hosting companies today kind of 'sneak' in a few options that are significantly overpriced as if to try to attract those who want good hosting but don't know how much it should cost.  Web Hosting UK doesn't do that.  Basic windows hosting starts at 3.12 Euro per month and goes up to 7.90.  Linux VPS solutions go from 15.59 to 40.79 and dedicated servers are 83.99-143.99 per month.

Speed

Very Fast Hosting Service

There are many factors that go into determining the speed of a hosting company. Things like the type of hardware used, the firewall configuration, the network connections into their datacenters, the internal wiring types, and much more. In each category, Web Hosting UK has done a good job at making sure they are using top of the line equipment and configurations. All this adds up to ensure their customers will be getting a very fast hosting experience.

Summary

Very Nice UK Hosting Option

If you're looking for hosting in the UK, this is a good company to consider.  They have been in business long enough to know what they are doing.  They have plenty of options to meet anyone's needs.  Their prices are fair and their tech support is responsive.  You really can't ask for too much more than what this company is offering.

Pros:

  • 99.95% Uptime Guarantee
  • Good Prices
  • Lots of Options

Cons:

  • Some Features Aren't included in Packages
