About Pixel Kicks

Pixel Kicks develops professional websites for clients from a range of industries. In recent years it has moved into developing fan sites and apps for popular bands and musicians, and is in the process of designing a ticket comparison site.

The Challenge

Using a range of providers to host its array of websites, Pixel Kicks knew that launcing a website dedicated to One Direction would require a server and hosting provider that could promise reliability and top speeds. Unconfident that any of its current providers could meet the demand, it turned to UKFast.

The Solution from UKFast

Hosted on a UKFast Dedicated Linux server, OneDirection.net has become the most popular unofficial boyband fan site in the world. The site receives an average of 30,000 hits a day and never slows, even during traffic peaks that can reach as high as 63,000 visitors.

"We received 63,000 hits in 24 hours, but our server with UKFast never faltered."
