A small team serving big clientele

From Matthew's attic in 2002, Bytemark are now a technically-focussed managed hosting provider. We have a staff of 19 and own our own data centre in York.

The company philosophy continues to be 'built by hand'. Our software, servers and network are completely of our own design. Fewer suppliers mean we take responsibility for everything that goes on, at a high level of detail, and we think that gives our customers more confidence in the services they buy from us.

A solid infrastructure

In over five years of business, Bytemark has great contracts with our three data centres and has expanded its network to provide multiple feeds, peering and more redundancy than ever before.

“We purchased our first server with Bytemark just over 18 months ago and they have provided us with a faultless service. We've been particularly impressed with their technical knowledge, their support team and their use of Debian really sealed the deal for us when we signed up. We're currently in the process of moving all of our hosting requirements to them”
