Website Hosting

From just £85.00 per year, we offer three fully managed web hosting plans, 'Standard', 'Advanced' & 'Premium' each plan includes sub domains, email accounts, MySQL databases and many more features.


Our hosting partner's data centre is based in London, so matter where in Europe you are located, you can be assured of fast, reliable web hosting backed up by a personal customer service.

 

Our hosting plans are ideally suited to home users and small to medium size businesses.

 

See our hosting site gjw-hosting.co.uk for more details.


In the unlikely event that one of our hosting plans doesn't meet your exact requirements, we will be happy to create a bespoke plan for you.

Website Design

Web hosting, also known as shared web hosting, virtual web hosting or web space, is space that we rent out on our hosting partner's servers to you for a monthly or yearly fee.


This space is designed for you to have your website uploaded to and comes with many additional features. These include multiple eMail accounts, cPanel control panel, MySQL database, FTP access and more.

Why do I need web hosting? Can't I use my own computer?

Technically you can host your website on your computer, yes. But every time you turn the computer off or reboot it the website goes down. Or imagine if you have a power cut and the site is down for an extended period of time. And if you want to watch a film or play a game, this will use the majority of your computer's resources and will impact massively on the speed of your website.


Considering the cost of one of our web hosting plans, it just doesn't make sense to host your website on your own computer.

Why choose you for my Web Hosting?

We're good. Our prices are affordable; not too cheap and not too expensive. Our web hosting services are reliable, our customer support is personal, fast and friendly and our hosting partner's London based web servers mean lightning fast access to your website from Europe and around the world.

I have multiple domain names. Can I host them with you?

Yes, you can. All of our web hosting plans support multiple domains. We have a feature called "add on" domains which allows you to host multiple separate websites under one account. We also have "parked" domains which allows you to direct different domains to one website (say, for example, you own the .co.uk, .com and .net version of your domain).

Should I choose UK or US web hosting?

There isn't a right or wrong answer here. Some people prefer a US location while others prefer a UK location. Our hosting partner's web servers are located in London, and provide lightning fast access to your website from Europe and around the world.

What benefits/features do you offer over other web hosts?

There are a number of reasons why you should choose us over other hosts and simply too many to list here! So just concentrating on some of the main benefits of choosing us:

  • Experience. Our hosting partner has been in the hosting business for 10 years. They know every nook and cranny and are expert at delivering a first class performance to you and your website.
  • Reliability. We know nothing is more frustrating than your website being down and you losing sales or enquiries. Our hosting partner has invested heavily into their servers and infrastructure to deliver you 100% uptime each and every month.
  • Support. Our hosting partners work 24x7x365 (and yes, this includes Christmas and Easter). Other UK hosts have been known to go on holiday for the entire Christmas or Easter period… not them!
  • Price. Our hosting prices are cheap enough for the mass market to afford but priced sensibly to allow us to deliver a great level of service and make a profit. The age old adage "you get what you pay for" definitely rings true with web hosting.

What types of domain can I host? I have .co.uk, .org, .net, .plc.uk, .tv etc.


We support all domain extensions. You can host any type of domain with us.

Can my existing domain be moved to your servers?

Yes it can. You just need to update/point the nameservers to ours (you are advised of these). Your domain will stay with your domain registrar and you will continue to pay domain renewal fees to them. You will pay any hosting fees to us.


If you need assistance/help with the domain name transfer process, just get in touch. We're more than happy to help you with this.

Can you transfer my website from my current web host?

Yes, we can. We can make transferring your web hosting to us a painless and hassle-free. Supply us with the details to access your website with your old web host and include databases, eMail accounts etc. and we will do the transfer for you. We generally do not charge for this service, but depending on the amount of data to be transferred, there may be a small charge.


Note – at this time, we can only do this transfer from other hosts using the cPanel control panel system.
