A little about us…
DataLords’ roots go back to 2001. Our founders’ first technical role was working for one of the first commercial Internet Service Providers in the UK, which provided both a rapid education on “how” the Internet worked, alongside practical experience of great customer service in action. This meant we were left with a key understanding of what was required to build a great Internet company today.
Over the following two decades, we continued to grow the hosting company, but the web design and marketing business took over… after nearly 20 years, and with continual frustration that no one hosting partner seemed to provide exactly what we needed for the agency… we decided to knuckle down and design our own hosting company from the ground up.
Most hosting platforms, from the small ‘DIY’ hosting platforms to the corporates – generally utilise off the shelf software that’s designed to host hundreds if not thousands of people on a single server. That server might well be a culmination of multiple physical servers, but it’s still a single server tasked with handling hundreds or thousands of people.
The problem with this is, no matter how good the operating system and software, at some point, when that server is busy… your (or your client’s) website will slow down.
We simply don’t accept that a website should slow down. The website should always be as fast as it can possibly be, all the time. This is best achieved simply by providing each website with its own dedicated resources.
On top of that, we’re constantly expanding our network, peering agreements and more, to ensure that we provide you and your clients with the fastest hosting possible.
