I am delighted to say that UKFast enjoyed another record year this year. A big thank you must go to our team, which has grown considerably this year, for continuing to deliver an excellent service to clients. It is their dedication more than anything else that helps to set us apart from our competitors.
A big thank you must also go to our partners and clients for doing business with us and trusting in our ability to serve them faithfully.
I truly believe that UKFast continues to prosper because we focus on the important things. Our values are all about employing the best to deliver the best service and support to clients. The businesses that host with us demand top performance and reliability and they stay with UKFast because we can meet their expectations. And that is very satisfying.
But we never rest on our laurels. To do so would mean to lose focus and drive and fall below the excellence we demand of ourselves. So in 2009 we plan to drive the business to even greater heights.
We have a raft of new products and services to bring to clients to enhance their UKFast hosting solutions even further. We will also continue to expand our team of dedicated account managers, sales executives, technicians etc. to empower us to offer more added value to clients. We also hope to continue to expand our network that already exceeds a quarter of a million websites.
And we believe that the business climate will be right to support a great year. E-commerce is growing every year and 2009 will be no exception. Research suggests that next year UK online sales will climb by 14.4% to £68.4 billion, compared to £59.8 billion in 2008.
So businesses need to be online in 2009 and if they choose a dedicated server from UKFast they can ensure the best performance and reliability on the market.
Bring on 2009, it’s going to be a great year!
