Supercharge your site by over 200% with our

Qfast TURBO BOOST

 Qfast Turbo Boost cache is our unique, custom, super-powered way of ensuring your hosting is over 200% faster. It works by intelligently creating optimised static versions of your website pages and storing them in actual RAM on the Qfast load-balancers – meaning visitors don’t have to wait for WordPress to build the page for them – pages are pre-built and optimised ready and waiting to zip down your viewers in lightening fast speeds. 

Sites we host, including our own, experience a massive 200-600% speed increase with Qfast Turbo Cache and produce First Byte speeds of less than 200ms consistently, and load times between 2 and 3 times quicker than without QFast. That’s an EPIC speed boost  and quite possibly the fastest hosting on the planet!

Importantly, that means you can turn off those pesky, troublesome caching and accelerator plugins in WordPress too.

FAQs – website hosting questions answered

Where are the servers located?

We manage our own network from our Telehouse London datacentre racks – the most secure and interconnected datacenter in the UK and one of the premium interchanges in Europe (home of LINX). We peer with all the major ISP’s in the UK and worldwide via our dedicated 10GB connections from providers like Cogent via 4 diverse feeds and dual power.

What servers do you use?

We use the very latest and fastest servers, routers and storage engines, each with high-availability built-in by design. Typically they are dual-processor, 24-40core XEON 2.6Ghz with 128GB of RAM and SSD system disks and quad 1Gbps network and dual 10Gbps fibre. The hosting system comprises over 16 servers per cluster – find more information on our Quadra platform here. 

Can I try your hosting before I buy?

Sure, our 30 day money back guarantee is no-quibble but you’ll need to pay by card or Paypal. Most importantly, the reason is to avoid abuse by scammers who take advantage of free hosting periods and jeopardise the performance and reputation of our system, But, if you’re not happy for any reason, we’ll refund within 24 hours without question.

Can i host multiple websites?

Each package is for one website. It’s very high performance hosting – not the cPanel shared hosting systems you see elsewhere. If you need to host multiple websites on a budget, see our cPanel Hosting or contact us for partner discounts (5 sites or more)

Do I get root, SSH or cron access?

No. Because of the high availability of this level of hosting, we have to protect the stability and security of the shared servers. If you need this kind of access, you’ll need a VPS, which we can help with.

What payment methods do you accept?

You can pay by all major credit cards (including American Express) or Paypal. If you need to pay on account by bank transfer on account or cheque, let us know and we’ll set you up quickly.

How do you guarantee 100% uptime, everyone else just offer 99.9% max?

Our Quadra platform is designed to be extremely reliable and capable of 75% system outages before failing – and we have a backup in place that automatically switches if that fails. It means we can perform almost all maintenance and upgrades without downtime too. Other ISP’s 99.9% uptime guarantee usually exclude “scheduled maintenance”. After all, a well-maintained server should be updated and rebooted at least twice a month. We update and maintain servers several times a week sometimes, without any downtime!

What platform does your control panel use, Plesk or cPanel?

Neither. Both of those add too much lag to websites and hinder high-availability (in fact it’s not really possible with cPanel or Plesk properly). You get our own in-house designed control panel when you need to, but in reality, our hosting is fully managed, so if you need anything special with the configs, changes, restores or backups – just drop us a line and we’ll sort it for you!

Do you have a list of customer sites you host?

We do, we guard it with our lives! Security or data protection is very important to us so we’ll never share our customers information. This website is hosted on our WebMate Pro servers (and is quite a heavy WordPress Theme). We host sites for everyone from large multi-nationals, governments, police forces, well-known ecommerce giants as well as corner shops,  cupcake makers, builders and independent consultants all over the World.

Do I need a CDN (Content Delivery Network)?

If your visitors are mainly in the UK or USA, a CDN may actually make your site slower as our servers are so fast. However, if your site is worldwide, then a CDN will help by keeping the images and cached content of your site local to the visitor better. Our links to the rest of the world are fast, but servers in the same country as the visitor will usually be much faster. We provide cost-effective CDN addons for all sites from Sitelock where necessary.

Do I need an SSL?

Nowadays, Yes. browsers and search engines can punish your site if it’s not secure – even if there’s no personal data being used. Customers are more comfortable browsing a site with a green padlock too. We can provide reputable SSL’s from just £20 / $30 /year. We don’t recommend or support LetsEncrypt certificates on our WebMate Hosting platform at present due to some issues they can present (but are supported free of charge on our cPanel hosting)

How do you claim to be the fastest website host?

It’s true, we put exact copies of our own website – a fairly plugin-heavy and high load website – onto various other popular shared hosting platforms and found that our WebMate Pro with Qfast Turbo Cache faster on all the key metrics. You can also check yourself, run a Google Pagespeed test on other ISP’s home page (we’d assume they’d use their own shared platform at least, although they often have a better dedicated system for their own site that they sell – we use our busiest server cluster for this site) We’re happy to prove it with free migration and a 30 day money-back guarantee too!

I have been with WebMate since dial-up access days! Stayed with them mainly because of their excellent customer service – prompt, helpful, and knowledgeable. They even ring you back if their line is busy! What a relief not to have to deal with a far flung call centre or poorly informed staff reading from a script. Efficient service and staff very supportive, helpful and patient. Treated like a person as opposed to a number.

Great support as always from WebMate! I’ve used Webmate for about 8 years now and they are always superb at delivering, friendly, honest coherent support in a really timely manner! I don’t hesitate to recommend them. Thank you Pete, Charlie, Lewis and all the team!

Guy Press

Excellent Service. Webmate have always been helpful and prompt in dealing with queries and problems but they surpassed themselves with a recent issue I had. At all times they replied very quickly, sometimes in only a few minutes, and were very patient in finding a solution that was not obvious and hence took several attempts to sort out. I can’t see you getting this level of service from some of the larger ISPs.

Roger Adams

Webmate have been my preferred ISP for sometime. Consistently excellent service and superb uptimes.
They recently prepared a website for me. A superb job for the price.I cannot recommend them too highly.

Kieth Straughan
US - 17 July 2020

I have been with WebMate since 1998 and I cannot fault their excellent service and competitive rates for web-building and email hosting. No voice recognition frustration options when you call, but a familiar friendly voice to help you with any computer issues to hand.

Annabel Yates
Cornwall- 4 July 2020

Excellent service. The best Mac web provider out there. Any issues have been sorted extremely quickly and politely. Thank you. No holding on to phone lines for ever and ever. Quick response if even I’ve phoned. Tickets generated for problems sorted over night at the slowest.

Geoff Bridge

WebMate Shines. Best outfit out there… Always available, friendly, and knowledgeable; go out of their way to resolve any issues, both email and/or web support issues. Can’t say enough about these people.

Peter Streimac
USA - 30 April 2020

A wonderful company – efficient, helpful and simply the best (my experience of 15 years impeccable service)

Stephen Frankel
UK - 6 April 2020

I had no Broadband, so I phoned WebMate and I got the usual guy’s (based in Cornwall) to sort my problem within one day, I’ve been dealing with the same people for 20 years, that says everything! They got back to me to say that leave it with us, we’re working on it, and sure enough, it was fixed shortly afterwards. I truly believe that WebMate is the best and most honest company that I have ever dealt with, they are exceptional. Thank you all very much again.

Robert Irvine
Scotland - 14 Feb 2020

A company that will actually talk to it’s customers. In a world where most companies seem to be set up to make it as hard as possible for you to talk to a real person, WebMate is a breath of fresh air. There are real, always helpful people just a phone call away. I have never for a moment regretted changing from the ever unhelpful BT. I don’t write reviews normally but this company deserves a bit of my time for going out of its way to be helpful to its customers rather than keeping them at arms length. I would highly recommend them.
