At UK2, we help you make the web your own. We can find you a web address that’s as singular as a signature, we’ll help you design a one-of-a-kind website, and we’ll get the finished product live, for life.
Based in the heart of start-up territory in Shoreditch, London, UK2.net is Britain’s local web hosting company. But we’re also part of the UK2 Group, which has hosting brands in America, so we’ve got international clout, too.

"We would like to thank the support team for easily answering our website problem. They turned my day around with just a simple, understandable resolution with a friendly Service so a big thank you from me and all the elves here at the wicked chilli company"
"Great experience with UK2 support. We've been with them since they started up way back. Always good responses and the tech guy today who helped me out after I wiped my .htaccess file was brilliant. I'd recommend without reservation.!!"
Julian Jones, Hursley emc services Ltd
"I have been a customer of UK2 for as long as I can remember. It never ceases to amaze me the speed in which you respond to problems or queries, usually of my own making. The live chat for tech support is so efficient. I have nothing but praise for you guys and gals. The level of service is second to none. Nothing ever seems to be too much hassle. Well done, you all deserve a medal."
Yvonne Armitage Computer Services
"9pm on Sunday evening, realised that I hadn't renewed my hosting service. 10 minutes of help from your live chat support and my websites are up and running again. As a company offering 24 hour emergency electrical/locksmith services most of our work comes from the websites, so getting this fixed without having to wait for Monday morning was very important."
Nick Lane, Kent Security and Electrical
"I've been a faithful customer of UK2.net for about 12 years, regularly registering new domains on behalf of clients. The costs are superb value, and the service - online or over the phone - is fantastic. I'd highly recommend them to anyone - and regularly do."
Jay Commins, Pyper York Ltd
"I have been a UK2 customer for many years now. Overall, the service offering is consistently good. It seems that the only time I ever need support is when the time comes to renew services - but then the support is at all times truly exceptional - fast, accurate and successful. In a word - Excellent!"
Don Edmondson, KG enterprises
"I changed all my sites over to UK2 last year because whenever I needed them they were there for me. No mocking geeks just simple, practical help that works! Just did my first add-on site by myself and I must say that the instructions were far easier to follow than what I had expected. Wouldn't go anywhere else"
Hazel Wood, Hazelwood Associates
"Been with UK2 for many years. Service and site uptime always been 100%. On the rare occassion when there has been a problem, resolution has always been fast and effective. Would recommend UK2 to others everytime."
Steve Riches, Richosoft
"Had a minor problem with the website not displaying properly. This was resolved very quickly (as usual) by the support team. The sign of good service is how quickly problems are resolved and on this point UK2 scores highly."
Harmit Kuner, Design Fairy
"Over the last few years of dealing with UK2 for personal and client hosting, I have found them reliable and their live support is truly excellent. Quick, knowledgeable responses and to the point. Excellent up time and customer service all-round. Highly recommended."
M. Linnane, MGL Marketing Limited
"This is a completely honest review. These days it's hard to come across good customer service, but somehow UK2 have actually bucked the trend and provide good, quick and informative replies and help that clearly shows they employ real people with knowledge and skills, rather than just a list of scripted replies, which is such a common occurrence these days! Today I was helped by Jason Barnes from Tech Support. Jason, thank you!"
Dave Bulow, DaveBulow Photograpahy
"Fantastic service and support, what else can I say. As a self-taught beginner I would highly recommend UK2. They are forever there to help and I can feel their smiley faces coming through their emails no matter how trivial my question seems to be. Great company to be with."
