Diffusion Hosting is a 100% U.K. web hosting company that was founded in 2016. Its data center is located at a London facility that is operated by British staff.
Features and Ease of Use
Diffusion Hosting offers four shared web hosting plans (including two WordPress plans) and two email hosting plans. The two shared website hosting plans provide you with:
- Free .co.uk domain registration or transfer
- Unlimited hosted websites
- cPanel control panel
- Unlimited SSD storage
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Unlimited email accounts
- Free SSL certificates
- Free website backups
- Free DDoS protection
You needn’t worry if your web design and development knowledge is nil because you get a free website builder that anyone could use to create a professional web presence. At the other end of the expertise spectrum, you can request SSH access and use Cron jobs to schedule regular tasks rather than having to execute them manually every time.
Underpinning your website will be the LightSpeed web server (which is far faster than Apache) and SSD storage (which is far faster and more reliable than HDD storage).
Although Diffusion Hosting’s 99.9% uptime guarantee is merely average for the industry, I discovered that its average uptime during the 30 days leading up to this review was a more impressive 99.976%.
Pricing and Support
Diffusion Hosting’s shared hosting plans are a bit pricey, but we should take this in the context of the unlimited resources on offer.
You can pay for plans in British pounds or U.S. dollars on one-month or twelve-month terms (with a free domain). Even on the twelve-month term, the 30-day money-back guarantee will allow you to get out within the first month if you change your mind.
You can contact Diffusion Hosting’s customer support team via support ticket (for logged-in customers), email, or an online contact form. Unfortunately, my contact form submission elicited no response. If you have to resort to self-support, at least during the pre-sales period, you can refer to the knowledge base:
