Since the beginning of its journey in 2004, UK Dedicated Servers Limited (trading as UK Servers) has focused on providing affordable yet quality dedicated server solutions. This U.K. company currently hosts clients on more than 4,000 servers, and its offerings include dedicated servers, private cloud hosting, colocation, dedicated rack space, database server hosting, load-balanced server hosting, and some other services.
UK Servers’ website is in English.
Features and Ease of Use
UK Servers offers 23 (Linux and Windows) dedicated server packages and customizable private cloud solutions. The Linux dedicated server packages provide you with:
- 100% network availability SLA
- Supermicro Rackmount server
- Hot-swap drive bays
- 10 TB monthly data transfer
- Optional cPanel/WHM control panel
- One-hour hardware replacement SLA
- Uptime monitoring
You can tell from this feature list that this company is more about the dedicated server hardware than the software that sits on those servers (which is largely up to you). This said, you can get servers optimized for Linux, Windows, cPanel, and Magento. And you can configure your server’s processor, storage, memory, and more.
The ultra-low latency packages may be of particular interest in scenarios (such as high-frequency trading or online gaming) where response times are paramount.
All packages come with a dedicated IP address so you can establish stricter security measures and increase the stability of your website. On the subject of stability, UK Servers hosts servers in an N+1 data center with independent power backup so that it can offer you a 100% power SLA.
If the worst should ever happen, you’ll be pleased to have taken advantage of this provider’s server backup services.
Pricing and Support
UK Servers’ dedicated server packages are pretty cheap. You can pay for them in British pounds by various methods (credit cards, bank transfer, or postal checks) on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual billing cycle. The uptime SLA means you can claim a refund if the service level isn’t met.
