Hello and thank you for considering Photon IT!
We provide friendly technical services to small and medium businesses in the UK. If you’d like to discuss your requirements over the phone, please give Matt Hopton a call on 07588 495 786, or email email@example.com.
If you’re looking for web hosting solutions, our most popular package is:
- UK Domain Name (eg mygloucesterwebsite.co.uk)
- Wordpress Website (huge 100GB limit)
- Standard Email (10GB inbox with advanced spam protection)
For just £6.29 per month (£75.48 per year).
More information about this package, together with some other popular options is detailed below. If you can’t see what you’re looking for, send us an email and we’ll see what can be done. If you’re confused by any technical language on here, please ask and we’ll be happy to explain it to you!
If you have built your site with Weebly or another online creation platform, we can register a domain for you and host a basic email service for you.
For domains ending in .co.uk, .org.uk or .me.uk, an annual cost of £4.99 /year
Domains ending in .com, an annual cost of £9.99 /year
Domains ending in .org, an annual cost of £19.95 /year
Before signing up, please check with your creation platform that they are able to accept custom domain names (most platforms charge a monthly amount for this).
Domain and Hosting
If you prefer to build your website on our infrastructure, we provide domain and hosting for your website. Our standard package includes a massive 100GB on web space which is more than enough for most organisations!
Because of how our network is setup, we prefer to manage your domain name – this ensures it is configured correctly. (If you wish to manage it yourself, you must be familiar with creating and editing DNS entries.)
All our hosting packages include setup of a Wordpress-based site that you can easily edit yourself with no technical knowledge.

Uptime and Availability
We provide hosting for small/medium businesses. Unlike most hosting providers at this price point, your website is hosted on a Windows Server environment, with replication to a geographically redundant server. This means we always have a backup copy of your website that is physically separate from the primary server and able to be activated within 5 minutes.
Because of this infrastructure, we provide a minimum 99.9% guaranteed availability for your website. (You can see our live status page here). If availability falls below this, we give a 100% refund for that month.
Also, unlike the large hosting providers, your website is not limited to the computational resources it can access (memory and processor) – this means webpages are delivered to your visitors as fast as possible!
Access and Development
We provide FTP credentials to access your web space (most common). If you are developing on a Windows-compatible platform, we can also provide SMB access should you require it. Both forms of access can be encrypted using IPSEC if needed.
We provide two levels of email service.
Email access can either be provided through a web-based system, or you can configure a software package on your PC, Tablet or Smartphone to access via IMAP. (If you need help setting any of this up, we can talk you through it.)
Our Standard service gives advanced spam protection, and delivery through Microsoft Exchange Online. If you wish a larger inbox, then our Professional Plus service includes 50GB of space.

If you're starting from scratch, we can also design and manage your website. Everything is created using the latest web standards.
Prices vary based on what you're looking to do - please contact us with details (number of pages, web checkout system required etc).
