WordPress hosting in the UK

According to Internet World Stats, there are more than 63 million internet users in the UK. London is also one of the most dominant financial centers in the world competing with New York in obtaining the “most important location for international finance” title. More than 100 of the 500 largest companies in Europe are based in London. The city has also been labeled as the European City of the Future.

According to Google, those throughout the British Isles and Western Europe will see significant reductions in latency when running websites in the London region. Testing shows 40% to 82% reductions in round-trip time (RTT) latency when serving customers in cities like London, Dublin, Edinburgh, and Amsterdam, compared to using the Belgium region.

Speed is one of the most important factors for user experience and thus conversions. Thanks to the cutting-edge technology we employ via Google Cloud Platform, PHP 7, LXD and others we are able to serve your UK based and international visitors with the speed they deserve.

Get Started

WordPress community in the UK

The UK has some of the biggest WordCamps on the planet: BuddyCamp Brighton, WordCamp Birmingham, WordCamp Portsmouth, WordCamp Bournemouth, and WordCamp Bristol. Not to mention WordCamp London, which alone had a record number of 550 attendees in 2018. This community is growing rapidly each year.

Did you know that co-founder of WordPress, Mike Little, is a UK-based consultant? He's very active in the community and an organizer of the Manchester WordPress User Group.

Besides WordCamps there are a lot of local Meetups as well. These are typically smaller events and meet once a month. They provide essential learning and educational discussions dedicated to all things WordPress. The top 10 WordPress Meetups in the UK have more than 13,700 members.

The UK contains many notable and award-winning WordPress companies. Human Made, founded in 2010, has grown from a small team in the UK, to a global agency with employees and clients all over the world. Other companies such as 93digital and Wholegrain Digital lead the pack in terms of enterpise WordPress development.
