FAQ: UK Hosting

During this offer period we have received several queries about our UK hosting offerings, the most common ones can be found below!

  1. Do I need it? / What are the benefits?

    That really is your decision, we’ve listed the biggest perceived benefits below (I say perceived only as nobody can guarantee the second one!)

    • Lower latency (packets of data don’t have so far to travel or return) if most of your visitors are UK based.
    • Search Engines are believed to promote sites up the rankings if they are in the same geographical location as the searcher.
    • – All data is stored in the UK (depending on your industry this can be a powerful driver).
  2. It’s more than an increased £5 per year on hosting packages?

    The increased cost of £5 per year on hosting packages represents an increased cost on our current package prices. Customers who kept their old pricing before our price increases last year, should note that the new package price is £5 on top of of the new prices (an upgrade to UK hosting represents a change to your package which would move you away from old pricing).

    At this time we’re also encouraging customers to take advantage of our backup service (either daily or weekly) whilst they are considering changes to their account.

  3. Can I get this with no charges?

    No, the addition of a UK server represents and increased cost to us, here at BetterWebSpace we only charge for things that cost us (we think that’s the only way that’s fair!). We are offering a promotional offer that we will move your data for you (after you’ve upgraded and paid your invoice) free of charge – if you order before the 6th January 2010, after this time you can choose to move your data yourself or use our Premium Support service to do this for you.
