July 22, 2008 (HOSTSEARCH.COM) Hosting company UK2.net announced today that it has followed up fantastic first quarter results with an equally successful second quarter, resulting in above target performance and exceptional half year results.
Again the success is due to excellent growth in the higher revenue and profit areas of shared and dedicated hosting, not just domain names. Also UK2.net has seen positive growth in both new customers and existing customer renewals.
We were extremely pleased with our Quarter 1 results, but are even happier to have continued the strong performance throughout Quarter 2, making 2008 one of our best years so far, said Ditlev Bredahl, Managing Director / CEO of UK2. We have made significant changes within UK2 over the past few years, which in turn have generated significant rewards. We have really enhanced our support, strengthened our network, launched an amazing portfolio of products and have kept our prices competitive. Underpinning all of this is a team of dedicated UK2 employees, who promise to Bend Over Backwards to help all our customers.
UK2.net has been a significant player in the British and European hosting markets since 1998, and is the founder brand of the UK-2 Group. UK2.net underwent a large organisational and strategic restructure in 2006 when the new Management Team came on board. A three year strategy was set out that time, starting with 2006 being a clean up year where the focus was on getting the basics right and establishing a sold foundation for the future. Then 2007 was the rollout year, where UK2s marketing activities kicked in along with exciting changes to the portfolio and considerable investment into the organization. Finally 2008 is the consolidation year, where UK2 as planned, is maturing into a successful, dominant hosting company growing organically and through acquisitions, and plans and strategies for future success are being conceived.
UK-2 Group, a major player in the hosting industry since the late nineties, provides domain name registration and web hosting services to many customers through its family of hosting brands UK2.net, US2.net, midPhase Services, AN Hosting, Autica and Resell.biz. The group operates its services out of several state of the art, multi million pound data centers and are committed to providing reliable, secure and great value products and services underpinned with excellent support. UK2-Group is also a major shareholder in the merged Redbus Interhouse and Telecity Group, the leading European data centre provider.
