Webfusion has been around since 1998, making it one of the pioneers of UK web hosting. Today, it is one of several hosting brands run by the large corporate group GX Network Limited. Other hosting companies in the group include 123-reg, Donhost, Supanames and Vialtus Solutions.
GX Networks has more than one million customers and runs one of the UK’s most comprehensive communication networks. Today’s GX Networks is the result of several takeovers and buyouts during the past ten years. The last of these occurred in 2007 when the massive Pipex Communications Plc was spilt up following the sale of its broadband business to Tiscali. In 2008 the remaining elements of Pipex Communications (which included Webfusion) were re-named GX Networks Ltd.
Company and Services
Webfusion and its parent company, GX Networks, are private companies. GX Networks has its headquarters in the London suburb of Uxbridge.
Webfusion offers both Linux and Windows-based hosting. It has a comprehensive selection of packages from shared to VPS and dedicated server hosting. It also offers reseller options and Windows-based SharedPoint hosting. The standard shared hosting package comes in four sizes, starting with 1.5 GB disk space, 20 GB bandwidth and 500 mail boxes up to 300GB disk space, 300GB bandwidth and 5,000 mail boxes. All of these come with one free set-up and one free domain name, as well as 99.99% guaranteed uptime.
Specialist e-commerce options are also available. There are three VPS packages, while dedicated server fans are catered to with four different solutions, and again get 99.9% guaranteed uptime. All packages come with 30 day money back guarantee.
Webfusion offers 24/7 technical support via ticketed email and 0845 phone line. Account queries are handled during office hours Monday to Saturday. However, based on recent reviews, Webfusion’s customer service may have some way to go to improve its response times.
Webfusion has several ‘firsts’ to its credit including been the first UK host provider to offer reseller packages and the first to offer Microsoft’s .net 2.0 hosting in the UK. Webfusion, along with others in the Group, made the industry news in 2008 following the re-branding of Pipex Communications to GX Networks.
Webfusion is a member of the Internet Watch Foundation, a charity which aims to limit the amount of illegal content on the internet. It has been a UK Web Host Directory winner for Shared and Linux hosting (in 2007) and Windows Hosting (in 2006).
Webfusion’s servers are linked to the GX Networks’ Tier 1 network which is spread across the UK. Taken as a whole, GX Networks has data centers in London, Leeds, Manchester and Nottingham.
