Our Supporters

PHPNW15 wouldn’t be possible without the kind generosity of our Supporters contributions and for this we are highly thankful to the organisations listed below:

UK Fast

Hosting and colocation firm UKFast puts the heart in hosting – connecting businesses with their clients 24/7/365 by custom-building its own data centres, filling them with best-of-breed technology and connecting them to the internet at the fastest speeds possible.


We’re big enough to deliver and small enough to care – we’ve achieved a £23 million turnover but remain wholly owned by the family that founded us in 1999. We’ve spent 15 years developing a team of 220 extraordinary people and a portfolio of products that we’re incredibly proud of. Our technology allows the baggage carousels at airports to work, packaging for pharmaceuticals to be printed correctly and armed forces to communicate with their loved ones at home.


With more than 500,000 domains and 5,000 clients, UKFast is responsible for the internet fortunes of some of the world’s biggest brands and most exciting startups. From day one, our focus on customer service has been the driving force behind our growth and it continues to set us apart from other providers in our industry.


We’re also obsessed with innovation – we spent £5million on it last year. Our R&D team benefit from the Google 80/20 rule, spending one day out of five on development and building their own products. In 2013 UKFast launched eCloud, the largest available cloud in the country, representing a £12 million investment in enterprise-grade technology and a support promise that is unrivalled in the industry.

As well as providing exceptional hosting solutions, we also have a highly-competitive Partner Programme which, amongst other benefits, allows you to generate 10% monthly-commission payments on referred business.
