If you’re a UK company, it’s vital to make sure your website is accessible to your customer within a click of a second. One of the significant factors that affect the speed of your website is your hosting provider. All hosting providers have their pros and cons. Still, a major one for UK companies is where servers are situated as this determines how quickly your website is available to the visitor. Here are some of our favourite WordPress hosting options for UK companies.
Kinsta pride themselves in their premium managed WordPress hosting, which is powered by Google Cloud. Our websites improved in speed by around 30% every time we switched one from a different provider to Kinsta. One of the best reasons to go with Kinsta is their support team, platform, and daily backups.
The only reason to avoid Kinsta would be the cost of hosting. Their premium service is excellent but does come at a cost.
IONOS by 1&1
In comparison to Kinsta, IONOS by 1&1 is a great cheaper alternative. Hosting can cost few pounds a month and thus if you’re running a small UK company or simply a portfolio website, this will be a great choice for you. Unlike Kinsta, IONOS does not include daily backups in their core WordPress package, and their support team does lack knowledge at times.
Our final choice is Bluehost. A WordPress.org recommended host. Bluehost has some outstanding qualities as a hosting provider. Firstly, like IONOS it is cheap to host on Bluehost, and they have UK server locations. It also has a staging feature like Kinsta, meaning you can test out new website design features before making them live.
