It is worth noting that as of May 2014,UK Web.Solutions Direct became a subsidiary of M247 Limited.
Features and Ease of Us

- Visitor statistics

- Raw access logs
- cPanel WebDisk
- DNS management
- Domain registration
- Installatron script installer
UK Web.Solutions Direct uses top-notch hardware; their servers are mounted on high-performing Dell racks and use RAID disk mirroring with a fully redundant network. Their shared web hosting uses high-end Linux servers with Cloud Linux operating system for maximum stability and reliability. Each website hosting space has its own lightweight virtualized environment (LVE) and is given a predetermined amount of resources. This makes it practically impossible for a single website to bring down a web server.
UK Web.Solutions Direct has designed two types of backups. The first backup is their standard cPanel data backup performed on the servers themselves. The second backup is the Idera CDP data backup system that is performed by their own servers that are separate from the main servers. The setup for cPanel VPS servers is exactly the same as their shared web hosting and reseller plans, which makes upgrading and downgrading quite easy.
All UK Web.Solutions Direct WHM reseller accounts come with Installatron, allowing you to install over 60 free scripts including Joomla and WordPress, directly from your control panel.
Pricing and Support
