UK Servers is one of Great Britain’s greatest dedicated server providers (in my opinion). Its configurable servers are low-cost, and its support team is responsive.


Overview

UK ServersSince 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.

This vendor’s website includes a useful set of frequently asked questions. If these don’t answer all your questions, you can contact the 24/7 customer support team via telephone, ticket (existing customers only) fax, email, or online contact form. I was pleased to receive a rapid reply to my exploratory email:
