Hosting Features & Prices
Should I use a Linux or Windows hosting server?
We strongly recommend a Linux server for hosting. Our Linux hosting packages are supplied with a large number of features, including a lot of useful server scripts. Normally, there are more server scripts available for Linux servers, and these servers allow a larger number of MySQL databases.
Some of our 1-click server software installations require their own MySQL database use, so the Linux Advanced or Ultimate package is recommended.
We recommend that you only use a Windows server if you have a specific need to do so. For example, if you need to run Windows server specific software, such as ASP.NET.
If you’re not sure which type of server you need, the Linux server is nearly always the best choice.

Special Offer: FREE Domain Registration!
For a limited time, all annual, 2 or 3 year hosting accounts will come with a FREE domain name registration as shown in the terms and details here.
Please note that should a domain name not be renewed it may enter a Redemption Period and a redemption fee may be applied should you want to renew the domain. Details can be found here.
CentralNic domains (ending .uk.com, .uk.net, .gb.com, .gb.net, .eu.com, .us.com and others) are available here. We don’t register CentralNic domains ourselves, so please see here for these domain prices and details. These can then be used with our hosting as an existing domain.
If you would like to register a domain name without web hosting, please see our domain service at domainsplus.uk. Domain names cannot be registered without web hosting on this website.
Please note that domain registration payments are non-refundable.
1) This free domain offer is only available for a limited time. As long as the domain offer appears on this web page, the offer will be valid. We reserve the right to change or end this special offer at any time.
2) The free domain offer currently only applies to Nominet domains that end .uk, .co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk, and domains that end .com
3) The domain registration period for the free domain will only apply for the minimum domain registration term unless otherwise stated. This is currently 1 year for .uk and .com domains. Additional domain registration years can be added at any time from our domain service at domainsplus.uk. The free domain registration does not apply to renewal of the domain.
4) The free domain name must be ordered with the hosting account and be used with the same hosting account.
5) Should a refund be given for the hosting account (with a free domain), the current minimum domain registration price will be deducted from the refund.
6) The free domain has no alternative cash value, so if a hosting account is ordered without a free domain, this will not entitle you to an alternative service or product for the same value.
7) All free domains will be registered to the account holder, so you will be the legal domain holder for the domain, and not us.
8) There are no restrictions on how many web hosting accounts you may order with a free domain.
