About Your Simple Hosting

I started Your Simple Hosting back in 2011 as a small hosting company, mostly reselling dedicated servers and hosting small local businesses and sports clubs’ websites.

The announcement of Brexit back in 2016, which affected the GBP/USD exchange rate, impacted my business financially, making the company harder to run.

I left the old site up and running, not knowing what to do with it, I did consider selling Your Simple Hosting, but I said to myself, “there must be something I can do with the site.”

My Moment of Inspiration

Here I was with this site, not knowing what to do, then it hit me why I don’t take the knowledge I’ve gained running a web hosting business and working in IT for over 18 years and use it to help others.

Your Simple Hosting has been reborn out of the passion I have for helping others. I’m providing you with beginner guides, how-to guides, informational articles, and buyers guides

I started off working on the helpdesk and moving up through the levels, so I have an excellent support background. I’ve worked with both private companies and government institutions.

Web Hosting

I’ve scaled back on my business, but I still host local business and sports clubs’ websites that allow me to keep up to date with the background changes and new technologies.
