The story of Fasthosts

From brand new data centres, to amazing growth and advancements in tech – we’ve come so far since our humble beginnings. And things are only getting better.

When Andrew Michael couldn’t find a cost-effective, reliable hosting service to support his A-Level IT project, he created his own. And so, Fasthosts was born.

We opened our corporate HQ in Gloucester Quays, giving us the perfect space for our growing team to work.

Our first data centre was completed in Gloucester, guaranteeing our customers high-performing, reliable services.

This year brought more exciting things, as we were the first to support Microsoft’s .NET Framework 1.1 in the UK.

Our incredible Dedicated Server range was launched, delivering the best in performance and reliability on our customers own hardware.

We were acquired by United Internet, one of the world’s largest hosting groups, strengthening our market-leading position.

Another year, another huge achievement. We won Microsoft Hosting Partner of the Year, while also becoming a Microsoft Small Business Specialist.

This year was the year of landmarks, with our 10 millionth domain registration. And the numbers just kept rising!

The wins keep on coming. We achieved a global first, with the launch of our innovative Cloud Server platform.

2015 saw the introduction of automated WordPress installations into our range of shared hosting services.

Happy 20th birthday to us! As well as turning 20, we also launched Bare Metal Servers, offering the power and performance of Dedicated Servers with flexible billing and the latest SSD tech.

We became the first UK provider of Microsoft Exchange 2019 email. What a year!

During a rollercoaster of a year, we made sure our teams were supported and had everything they needed to work safely and remotely. This working pattern was so successful that even when things opened up, we carried on with new hybrid office hours.

Our Partner Network was developed to help new and existing customers find trusted web pro businesses to support them in creating and maintaining their online presence.

We also launched our next-gen WordPress hosting platform.

Our incredible Tier IV certified Worcester data centre was completed, running on 100% renewable energy.

On top of that, we launched Fasthosts ProActive, our exciting new managed cloud service.
