Host the Best Introduction

Host the Best is a UK-based web-hosting company serving customers throughout Europe and North America. Founded in 2003 by current CEO Ben Scully, the firm offers a wide variety of hosting plans ranging from entry-level service packages for small businesses to more comprehensive hosting plans for larger corporations and high volume ecommerce enterprises. For a commensurate fee, Hosting the Best will register your domain name, set up your hosting account, and design and deploy your website.

Services and Specializations

Host the Best provides a number of web-hosting options for their customers, including standard cPanel shared, shared VPS, and dedicated server hosting. This gives the company a greater flexibility in regards to their customer base, allowing them to meet the needs of both budget conscious start-ups and established enterprises with data intensive workloads.

  • Basic cPanel Web Hosting — Host the Best's entry-level services offer shared hosting on a professionally managed server, with 24/7 remote monitoring and on-site physical security. Service plans range from basic to professional grade, and are priced to suit a more modest operating budget. This service is best suited to small scale ecommerce sites and static web sites.
  • Virtual Private Servers (VPS) — Host the Best's shared VPS hosting plans are a step up from the basic cPanel packages, providing a more robust level of service for growing businesses with more exacting data demands. All service packages include secured single and subdomains, as well as SSL encryption and static or dynamic site seals. Best suited for ecommerce enterprises and websites handling sensitive consumer data. Service plans are available in both Linux and Windows platforms.
  • Dedicated Servers — in addition to their shared hosting services, Host the Best also offers dedicated servers for those clients who demand total control over their hosting environment. Powered by Intel Zeon D processors, the firm's dedicated server packages include an exclusive IP address, unmetered bandwidth, a guaranteed speed of 250Mbps, and DDoS protection.

Additional Services

To augment their web-hosting packages, Host the Best offers a number of supplementary services for their customers including website design, reverse proxies (for clients who wish to restrict their IP addresses from public view), and SSL certification for websites handling sensitive personal and financial information. Host the Best also acts as a cPanel web hosting reseller, partnering with smaller independent companies to provide fast and reliable web-hosting services for their customer base.

Infrastructure and Security

Host the Best relies on a network of OVH datacenters throughout Europe and North America. Use of these datacenters is restricted to Host the Best and their authorized employees and technicians. 24/7 security is maintained by an on-site staff and via remote video surveillance.

Support and Services

Host the Best promises a minimum of downtime, though no concrete metrics were available for review. The firm offers 24/7 customer support via live chat and email, and all services are backed by a 30-day money back guarantee (however there is a 20% holding fee on all refunds).

Billing and Payment Policies

As with most commercial web-hosting companies Host the Best bills their customers on a monthly basis. The firm accepts major credit cards as well as PayPal. Although customers are free to place an order for services via the company website, new clients are encouraged to first speak with a representative to discuss their website and data demands before choosing their preferred level of service.


With more than a decade in the industry, Host the Best promises to provide fast and reliable web-hosting services to meet any budget and every level of data demands. The company's experience as a web-hosting and reverse proxy reseller is a fair indicator of their abilities to fulfill that promise, and the firm has won a number of awards for service over the years. Their pricing structure is on a par with current market averages, and their wide range of services make them an attractive choice for both emerging businesses and larger corporations.
