About Webhosting UK

Founded in 2001, Webhosting UK has grown to become one of the largest web hosting providers in the UK, serving over 35,000 customers and hosting in excess of 1,000,000 websites across our network.

Unlike many competitors that have been brought and sold over the years, we have remained privately owned which has allowed us to retain our small business mentality towards customer care. This means we are accountable only to our customers.

As a private company, we have a unique ability to invest aggressively in new and emerging technologies. Many of the hosting solutions we offer today are the direct result of our continued investment and ongoing research and development.
