New, New, New!

There are a lot of NEW things for me to tell you about today!

First of all we’ve just launched a brand new order process which has been hard work but worth all the effort!

Here at UK2 we knew the old order process was looking tired and dated, and needed a well deserved refresh. We’ve given it a new look and feel which ties into the main website, and we’ve made it clearly stepped with user friendly icons and prompts – take a look and let us know what you think.

It’s just phase 1 so some things such as the start of the server order process and domain transfers have to be updated, but phase 2 will occur over the next couple of weeks, but we’re hoping it will make it much easier and quicker for customers to sign up.

Secondly we launched two new web hosting products, Complete and Plus, along with a two month free trial.

It was time that we simplified the Web Hosting portfolio, and we were finding that we had two types of customers – those starting out or looking for a really great value package, or those that needed extra for their bigger projects and businesses. As a result we’ve replaced our Starter, Small, Medium, Large and X-Large packages with Complete and Plus.

With the Complete package, we’ve tried to provide customers with everything that’s needed to set up and maintain a website, including 3,000MB of webspace with 100GB of monthly bandwidth, free webmail, 6 free POP3 email accounts, and free 24/7 support. All this is just £3.99 a month.

For users needing extra features, the Plus package has all the great features of Complete with a whopping 15,000MB of webspace and an enormous 750GB of monthly bandwidth, ideal for rapidly growing businesses. Plus offers around 5 times more than Complete and 100 POP3 email accounts with a total of 5GB storage for just £5.99 a month – only £2 more than the Complete package.

There’s an added bonus for customers who sign up for year on either Complete or Plus. They will get:

– Free Set Up
– A Free Domain Name
– Either £20 or £30 of Google AdWords vouchers with which they can promote their new website

Our special trial offer lets users who are new to web hosting, or unsure which package to purchase to have a go at no cost. The trial is two months of free hosting including all the features of Plus. Trialists just need a domain name or can transfer one in to UK2 for free. After the trial period the choice is either to stay on Plus, move to Complete or choose to not take a UK2 web hosting package. It’s as easy as that!

Bye for now,

I’ve just been through the order process and can definitely say I was impressed by the interface! Everything loaded quickly and I don’t recall any unnecessary steps/click-throughs, which made the experience very enjoyable!

Are there any plans to overhaul the control panel interface at all? I’m fairly comfortable with using Cpanel, so it was a bit of a surprise when using/testing the UK2 control panel interface. Granted that it is straightforward, it doesn’t quite seem to match up with the simplicity and usability of UK2’s order process and main site (I’m impressed it’s aiming for W3c validity, xHTML etc.)

HI Felicia,
Thanks for your comment 🙂

Yes, we will bring a new controlpanel online sometime VERY soon, its in the process of being tested now.
