London is 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 Internet World Stats, there are more than 63 million internet users in the UK. With a total population of just over 66 million, the UK has an astounding internet penetration rate of 96.7% (one of the highest in the world). An Akamai Q1 2017 survey also shows that the UK ranks 15th in the world in terms of average internet connection speeds of 16.9 Mb/s.
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.
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.
Our developer and system administrator team have been working with WordPress for over eight years. We know it inside out, have written several plugins and custom themes for this great CMS in the past years and we’ve been actively involved in hosting WordPress on our machines for years.
We only use the latest versions of each software that we work with ensuring that you and your visitors can enjoy the best user experience and the fastest page load times in the industry.
For the tech-savvy, here’s our current stack: Nginx, LXD containers, MariaDB, and PHP 8.0. We also offer HTTP/2 support, SSH, WP-CLI and Git support for our accounts. We use SSD-only machines and our full-page caches are stored in memory to be able to deliver them in just a few milliseconds!
Kinsta has partnered up with KeyCDN, a premium HTTP/2 content delivery network (CDN), to turbocharge your content around the globe. We include free bandwidth across all of our plans. When enabled, your content will be delivered and cached from their 34 POPs, this includes all regions: North America, Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, and Australia!
The network features a POP in London, as well as 10 other POPs strategically placed across Europe. These provide high throughput and low latency throughout all of the UK, as well as surrounding regions.
Kinsta takes data privacy seriously and utilizes Google Cloud Platform's encryption at rest. We allow you and your clients to comply with privacy regulations that require data reside in a specific country or region. Rest assured, if you choose the London data center, no data is ever hosted outside of the UK. By design, any add-ons or features that do transmit data outside of the country are optional and not enabled by default.
