Netcetera win ‘Best SME Business Hosting’ at UK Internet Industry Awards

UK based Web Hosting Service Provider Netcetera has been named the ‘Best SME Business Hosting’ provider in the annual UK Internet Industry Awards.

The accolade was announced at the prestigious ISPA Awards held on Tuesday, 3rd July in London, entertained by comedy from the hilarious John Maloney and some thoroughly interesting keynote speeches from Tom Scott and Dr Peter Cochrane. Organised by the Internet Service Providers’ Association (ISPA UK), the ISPA Awards are now in their 14th year and celebrate innovation and best practice in the Internet Industry.

Netcetera fended off competition from a number of industry rivals to earn the prestigious accolade.

“ISPA would like to congratulate all the winners and thank all the attendees and sponsors for making the evening possible,” said Nicholas Lansman, ISPA Secretary General. “It’s been another important and fast-moving 12 months for the internet industry, and the Awards are a good measure of achievement and innovation in the past year”

David Scalzo, of Netcetera commented, “This is a great boost for our business and most importantly none of this could have been achieved without the efficient support and dedication of the whole team at Netcetera.”

The ISPA Awards are highly respected, with all nominees going through two months of strict testing by ISPA technical testing partners. The technical tests periodically assess nominee’s services specifically for download speed and availability.

In addition to the technical tests conducted by the ISPA, nominees are judged on value-added services, which include support, security, flexibility and pricing and taking all these factors into account, Netcetera were found to be at the forefront and crowned as the 2012 ‘Best SME Business Hosting’ Award winners.

Netcetera demonstrated their confidence in their SME Business Hosting service and their focus on adding customer value through the 30-day no quibble money back guarantee offered to all customers.

Commenting on the selection of Netcetera as the Best SME Business Hosting provider, the ISPA noted, “Judges were once again impressed by Netcetera’s entry level service which features a variety of payment methods and 30 day money back guarantee”

This is the second year in a row that Netcetera have won a prestigious ISPA award. Last year they won the ‘Best Shared Hosting’ Award.

Netcetera has been providing web-hosting solutions since 1996 and has invested heavily in platforms that have been developed from the ground up. Since opening their world-class data centre in the Isle of Man in March 2007, they have achieved 100% uptime, and recently this was acknowledged by Netcraft’s as the ‘Most Reliable Hosting Company Worldwide’ in June 2012.
