Bytemark Hosting has been the "geek hosting outfit of choice" for UK hosting since 2002, because it's run by a programmer (Matthew Bloch) and network engineer (Peter Taphouse) They have built it from scratch with a goal of technical excellence, writing most of their own software and tools to run the business exactly the way they want. With a staff of software engineers, they are continuing on that trajectory. Their hosting spans £15 per month servers to multi-site managed projects with high uptime guarantees.

Bytemark have two large hosting spaces in Manchester linked by £250,000 of core networking equipment, links down to London, and around ten gigabit connections. This is overprovisioned compared to similarly-sized hosts, but with a goal of being robust in the face of random disconnections or abuse.

Bytemark run a comprehensive managed hosting service, and have host for big national brands like ASDA & Bostik, government departments such as the Department of Health and Central Office of Information, and hi-tech businesses such as travel site dopplr.com and Britain's largest mystery shopping company, Retail Eyes. They also have loan comparison companies, property search sites, car hire companies and thousands of smaller web developers who trust their clients to Bytemark's solid infrastructure and understanding of their software.

The year, 2001. The dream, to redefine recruitment. The reason, because three experienced, talented men decided that the industry was in need of a fresh approach, that recruitment could be improved upon, whilst adding a cheeky smile to the process. And so in that turbulent year, Eligo was born.

We live and breathe our market. In fact we like to think we are as passionate about the sector as those who work within it. Our Technical consultants offer a wealth of experience and have lasting connections across the industry.

Because we understand the market shifts, history and challenges, you will benefit from our honest and accurate advice on candidate availability, salary surveys and competitor information. You can be assured that we will present you with the most suitable, talented candidates, not just those who are active in the job market. We take great pride in this level of service. It’s what makes us unique and gives us our advantage.

In 2010 over 80% of our vacancies came from customers that had previously worked with Eligo.

We think this speaks volumes.
