The Challenge

Pixel Kicks is a modern digital agency specialising in the creation of professional websites for a wide range of clients. The agency also helps to market their clients' websites with search engine optimisation, pay-perclick advertising, email marketing and social media marketing.

Pixel Kicks used an array of hosting providers and had a number of high-traffic websites which required a reliable server and hosting provider that could promise reliability and top speeds. Unconfident that any of its current providers could meet that demand, the agency turned to UKFast.

The Solution we Delivered

Hosted on a Dedicated Linux server, UKFast ensures that websites designed by Pixel Kicks are able to withstand huge traffic spikes without an interruption to site speed.

In one of its first projects, Pixel Kicks launched onedirection.net, which became the most popular unofficial boyband fan site in the world. Thanks to UKFast's solutions, the site never slowed, even during traffic peaks as high as 63,000 hits over 24 hours.
