Although UK1Host is a relatively new entrant into the U.K. hosting market, it seems to have made a good start, and it boasts a Tier III data center.

Overview

UK1Host

Although UK1Host’s website doesn’t say when it was started, its Facebook page says that it was founded in August 2018. This U.K. host has a Tier III data center, and it offers a broad range of services that include shared hosting, cloud VPS, dedicated servers, reseller hosting, colocation, email hosting, SHOUTcast hosting, domain services, and SSL certificates.

UK1Host’s website looks like it can be switched into many different languages, but the language switching doesn’t seem to work.

Features and Ease of Use

UK1Host offers three shared hosting packages, six Windows cloud VPS packages, six Linux cloud VPS packages, 11 dedicated server solutions, and three reseller hosting packages.

The shared hosting packages provide you with:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • 5 GB to 50 GB disk space
  • 50 GB to 500 GB bandwidth
  • cPanel control panel
  • Unlimited MySQL databases
  • Unlimited email accounts
  • Unlimited FTP accounts
  • Cron jobs
  • DDoS protection
  • Hourly backups

The included Softaculous one-click installer helps you install a huge number of popular applications, including WordPress (to set up a CMS), Magento (to make an e-commerce site), and phpBB (for bulletin boards and web forums).

As an alternative to a CMS-backed website (or similar), the website builder lets you create a professional-looking website without having to be a web design or development expert.

In addition to standard hosting service, this host also offers SHOUTcast hosting solutions that let you set up your own radio station. Whatever kind of hosting you choose, your server will sit in a Tier III data center.

Pricing and Support

UK1Host’s shared hosting plans are competitively priced in British pounds. You can pay by PayPal, credit/debit card, or cryptocurrency on a monthly or annual basis (with two months’ free hosting). Although it’s half the time offered by many other hosts, the 14-day money-back guarantee at least gives you two weeks to change your mind if you’re not happy with the services.

The 24/7 customer support team can be contacted by ticket or live chat, and I was pleased to receive immediate responses via the live chat channel:

Self-support resources include a well-stocked knowledge base and a frequently asked questions page for each service.
