Posted by Steve Salter on 03 January 2017 10:47 AM

Another great month for Netcetera clients. Netcetera has come in at #1 out of all the UK’s top ISP’s monitored by Webperf, the Monitoring Service Company. Netcetera has regularly been in or around the top spot throughout 2016 for speed of hosting and reliability of service and this high standard has been maintained right throughout the year ending with the top spot for December.

As we’ve mentioned before, Webperf calculates the transferring rate against time. This measures the speed of our datacentre. Since October 1998 Webperf has been the UK’s only independent ISP performance benchmark. Testing any willing ISP’s for performance and reliability 24/7. Unlike some ISP’s we are more than happy to have external monitoring as it clearly demonstrates just how fast and reliable our hosting is. Just take a look…

As we start our 21st year in business it is our intention to continue to strive to be the number 1 hosting provider in the UK. Reliability and speed with value for money. To celebrate the start of 2017 we’ve put together some fantastic deals on hosting, managed cloud, and dedicated servers, and with so many great deals around there has never been a better time to find out how one of the UK’s most reliable hosting provider can transform your business.

Changing over to super fast Carbon Zero Hosting is so easy to do. So if you want excellent technical support, unbeatable pricing and industry leading reliability there’s only one place to look.

Hassle Free Website Migration To Better Hosting
Posted by Steve Salter on 27 May 2016 02:47 PM

Ever felt trapped because you don’t know the way out? It happens even within our industry. We hear stories all the time of clients lured to a hosting provider by offers of a great deal, super fast and super cheap, free hosting – in fact offers that turn out to be just too good to be true. They normally are!!

The problem is, for many people it’s not easy to change from one hosting provider to another, especially if you’re not that techy. Having to move domain names, point your website to a different server or IP address. Not knowing it your existing provider will give you your data back or even let you download everything needed to set things up again. We’ve heard lots of horror stories and that’s why we’ve introduced our new Concierge Service, and the good thing is you don’t have to be a VIP.

Our new service takes all the hassle away, making moving from your existing service provider so much easier. No need to be a tech expert, no need to worry about downtime or losing valuable emails, folders and files. We’ll ensure your move to better hosting is quick and easy.

Why put up with bad service? Let us take the strain and set you up on a hosting package that’s delivered by the UK’s #1 for speed of hosting and reliability and once you’ve made the move we’ll treat you like a VIP with our Concierge Total Cover Service, providing ongoing monitoring, backups and reports.

What are you waiting for? Get in touch today to start the move to hassle free reliable hosting with awesome support.

If you would like to become one of our satisfied clients and find out what Netcetera could offer your business why not give us a call or if you’re passing by, why not book a tour of one of the most modern energy efficient datacentres any where in the UK.

 Week 1. How To Start Online Business with Netcetera.

Right guys, I’m sure we’ve all sat up and took note of how successful some of these new Online Businesses have become, Uber, Tinder, Eventbrite and many more. I’d love to have a go at starting an online business from scratch. Yep… that’s right, from idea, right the way through to attracting clients, sponsors and potentially advertising and turning the idea into something viable. To make it that little bit more challenging I’m not really a tech person which could be like doing the Tour de France on a BMX, not impossible, but not what you want to be really doing.  Pinterest Graphic – Tips Week3

I’ve had a few ideas and I’ve created a few businesses previously, and made some big mistakes. Some would say failures, but I call them lessons. We’ve heard it said plenty of times, but a fail is the first attempt in learning. 

I’ve set a business up from scratch in Ghana, developing a market, catching malaria (not recommended) and having to converse in Twi. Not easy but we never gave up and achieved what we wanted to do. I’ve sold water filters and glazing and I’ve built a park. Building an online business, well this will be a challenge.

I can’t give too much detail yet, partly because I’m not sure what it will be. I’ve looked at creating an auction site but that’s sort of been done. I thought about ordering takeaways online but that’s been done too. I also had this great idea for a shared ride scheme where people could offer lifts like a taxi, but low and behold someone is now doing this too. I’ve played with the idea of a dating app too but that one brought about suspicion from my wife so I’ll park that idea for now.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be looking at the following :   

Join in with the fun as we learn about all the tech stuff, searching out the online tools that make life easier and getting to grips with promoting a new business through all the social media platforms.

Sounds interesting ? I hope it’s going to be, because it’s me that has to do it. All you guys need to do is follow, share and comment as we set out on this journey to create the next Ebay. (ok maybe not Ebay)
