Webhosting UK is a highly experienced, customer-oriented and feature-packed provider that can offer all that small or medium-sized business could ask for. Unfortunately, they fail to stand out among more ambitious competitors.

Pros

Transparent pricing policy

Easy one-click installer

Even the cheapest plans support multiple domains

30-day money-back guarantee for all plans

Cons

No free SSL certificate

Above average prices in general

Doesn’t stand out in comparison to competition

Established in 2001, Webhosting UK, also known as WHUK, has been in the web hosting business for almost 20 years now and, to quote them, they are “here to stay”. Based in Leeds, England, privately owned and independent, they manage their own tech support as well as monitoring, and take pride in the opportunity to be accountable only to their customer. In addition, they claim that being a relatively small company enables them to “invest aggressively in new and emerging technologies” which is certainly a positive approach towards business.

Pricing

Webhosting UK offers a full range of services and at the start you are asked to choose between different types of web hosting: basic shared web hosting, email hosting, WordPress hosting or reseller hosting. As for servers, they offer VPS, cloud and complete managed dedicated servers both for Windows and Linux. The least costly, as well as their bestselling plan, is the Premium Web Hosting plan and it starts at £2.49 ($3.24) for a month and offers a free domain, but for annual or higher plans only.

Speed and experience

Webhosting UK’s main website showed decent enough performance on our speed test by GTmetrix. The time it took to fully load was 6.3 seconds while the average is 8.4, and 83 requests were required against the average of 89. However, the page speed performance score is 77% which is barely above average of 74%, with the leverage browser caching criterion being the weakest link which made GTmetrix grade it with a C.

Support

Webhosting UK claims that they take the question of support very seriously as they offer 24/7 customer support via telephone and live chat, which is always welcome.

Webhosting UK is a well-rounded web hosting solution for smaller or medium-sized businesses, but their offer doesn’t include much in comparison with other providers.
