We’ll handle the 100 little technical things to give you the edge
Having built 76 websites over the years I know a thing or two about building stuff on the web.
However, with just 35 websites in my supported web hosting portfolio I’m able to provide the personal touch. You’re not just a number and with one of my supported WordPress web hosting plans – your website will get all the attention it needs.
Your website will be properly cared for
Our hosting is more extensive than the “set it and forget it” hosting of many providers, with which after they upload your website you’re on your own.
We won’t let things run out of date. For each of our hosting packages we’ll keep your WordPress installations, plugins and themes up to date (subject to the continuing validity of pro licences for any software you introduce).
Your website will be local
Our web hosting is local too, which means your websites can be served quicker to visitors in the UK. No transatlantic internet traffic slowdowns to contend with.
Your website will be green
This doesn’t relate to the style of your website! All our data centres are powered by 100% renewable energy from the sun, wind and sea.
You'll enjoy priority customer service
Over the last few years there’s been a bad trend in web hosting: literally hundreds of hosting companies have been gobbled up by two big-hitters called EIG and GoDaddy.
They buy small, dedicated hosts and “optimise” them for profitability, squeezing their customer support down to a bare minimum and moving on. Interestingly, they keep each acquired brand separate, so when people get dissatisfied and switch hosts they could well end up moving to another host owned by the same monopoly, only to experience the same problems.
Our hosting is backed by Krystal, who have a fundamental commitment to remain fully independent and customer-focused. They’re a family owned business but they’re also the largest independent UK hosting company. This means they hit the sweet spot of being large enough to be rock-solid reliable but also independent enough to provide great customer service.

Why does my website need to be maintained?
Maintenance boosts your security
They say prevention is better than a cure. Of course you could simply put your website on a cheap hosting package and hope for the best, but if things ever go wrong in future you may end up paying out more to a developer to fix things. Supported hosting will make sure things are kept running shipshape.
The internet is a rapidly evolving place with new opportunities and threats popping up all the time. Keeping core files, themes and plugins up to date is essential for keeping your business and/or visitor’s data safe. Of course this is especially important for e-commerce websites that handle customer information.
The difficult part is that updates to several interlinking technologies may introduce new incompatibilities. Our experience managing a wide variety of WordPress websites over the years puts us in a good place to spot and solve issues, potential or developing.
We keep up to date with threats in the industry and respond to any vulnerabilities fast. This means peace of mind for you.
