eUKhost Review: High Performance Cloud In The UK
eUKhost is a UK hosting company specialising in business packages. It was founded in 2001 by Robert King, who was 15 years old at the time. It’s based out of Morley, near Leeds, in the UK, and operates additional offices in Durham, UK and in India.
eUKhost uses datacenter facilities in the UK, and has a particular focus on attracting public sector and enterprise clients. It also offers entry-level shared hosting and a sitebuilder plan.
eUKhost Hosting Plans
eUKhost has a very wide range of packages, from a sitebuilder right up to private cloud provision.
Linux and Windows hosting is available; the former can be purchased with cPanel, or as a pure WordPress hosting package. Both platforms can be purchased as a shared hosting plan, or as a reseller.
WordPress plans are priced based on storage and capacity, rather than the number of visits per month.
eUKhost’s sitebuilder is called Amazing Website. There’s a free hosting plan, but it only allows you to create a single page site; if you need up to 5 pages, you’ll need to pay for the Personal plan. For unlimited users, the Business and Enterprise plans offer premium support, unlimited emails, and PayPal integration.
VPS and dedicated servers come with Windows and Linux too, and all dedicated servers are fully managed. If you choose a dedicated plan, be sure to check that your chosen storage is selected. Both HDD and SSD are available.
Cloud hosting boasts a 100% uptime guarantee, and your server can be set up with a choice of Linux-based distributions, Windows 2008, or Windows 2012. You can design your own package with either cPanel or Plesk, uptime monitoring, and optional remote backup provision.
All of eUKhost’s datacenters are located in the UK, and it currently has around 1,200 servers spread over three sites. It uses one facility in Wakefield, relatively close to its main headquarters, plus two facilities further south in Maidenhead and Nottingham. This alone will give eUKhost an advantage over hosts that only offer US-based data storage.
Customer support is provided from its UK and Indian offices by eUKhost staff. Technical support personnel are available on the phone 24/7, every day of the year.
eUKhost Money Back Guarantee / Cancellation Policy
The company has a 30-day money-back guarantee after the initial order date. Beyond that, customers can claim a partial refund unused time on their contract. You don’t have to pay for a long contract upfront; eUKhost customers can choose to pay on a monthly basis if they wish.
Customers that require UK web hosting will likely be attracted to eUKhost. Unlike some competitors, the company genuinely uses UK-only datacenters, and should therefore provide good speeds for a UK audience.
Although it’s a relatively small host, its longevity and range of packages suggests a commitment to customer satisfaction. Additionally, 24/7 support is quite rare in the UK; eUKhost has leveraged its Indian presence well in ensuring there’s always someone on hand to help.Related Links Blog: http://blog.eukhost.com/ Forum: http://www.eukhost.com/forums/ Resource library: http://www.eukhost.com/web-hosting/kb/
