4UHosting is an established UK Web Hosting business that has grown to become one of the UK's most respected and well loved hosting providers. The company was started in 2003 and still retains many of its early customers.
Read on to find out a little more about the business...
The company was originally set up in 2002 as an I.T consultancy under a different name. One of our first contracts involved arranging some Web Hosting for a client.
After researching the market we realised very quickly that we could offer a better UK Web Hosting product than the competition at a much more realistic price. So in May 2003, the 4UHosting brand was born and later we changed our name to 4UH Ltd.
We placed our business in the middle of the UK Web Hosting market. As good (If not better) quality as the market leaders, but with the prices of a budget provider. This has proved to be a winning formula.
4UH Ltd is operated by a small team of experienced and dedicated I.T professionals, headed up by Director Chris Drayton and Customer Services Manager Marley Gray.
Despite his youthful looks, Chris is a veteran of the industry having worked as an I.T specialist for nearly 20 years.
Prior to setting up 4UH, Chris had worked in I.T for a banking group and a leading UK retailer.
We operate from the historic city of York. One advantage of our choice of location is that we are placed within easy distance (30 minutes) of the data centre in which our equipment is located. This gives us the advantage of fast response times in the event of hardware issues.
We are based at York Science Park which is close to York University. The site is a hub for technology and science based companies and it provides a great working environment for our business.
Since early 2010 we have been running our equipment from Node4's Wakefield data centre which is a short trip from our offices in york. We rent our own private server racks in the facility, which provides a whole host of benefits to our customers in terms of redundancy and reliability
You can read more about this amazing tier 4 facility on our Technology Page and the video below provides a tour of the building, including a glimpse of the futuristic entry pod and huge diesel backup generators. (volume warning).
4UH Ltd is a friendly and ethical web services business aimed at offering the highest possible quality services at an always affordable price. With a strong focus on putting the customer first, we view ourselves as partners with our clients, our employees and our environment.
We aim to become a nationally recognised brand within the UK and to further expand our strongly ethical business methods, showing that there is a better alternative to the large, profit hungry corporation.
The success of the 4UHosting brand is attributed to a strong emphasis on good customer service and an obsessive approach to server management and technical support. Our goals are to continue offering the best service and value, to grow the business gradually and to always listen to customer feedback.
We offer a range of UK Web Hosting plans at very reasonable prices and with a ton of features, all included as standard. In addition to our great UK Web Hosting and Domain Names we also offer SSL Certificates. Our servers and staff are all based in the UK and our support is fast and friendly. All the prices on our website include VAT, so there are no nasty surprises at the checkout. What you see is what you pay!
