Our timeline history & milestones.

2023 & Beyond

To Infinity & Beyond

We never stand still and are always improving, updating and adapting our hosting platform to ensure customers have access to the features and hosting space to keep their sites fast and secure. We continue to improve our Migration Centre making it easier for customers to transfer their websites and mailboxes to us - free of charge. Through listening to customer feedback we continue to evolve and would love you to join us.


New VPS & Managed VPS

We launched our new cloud-based SSD VPS that puts you in full control of your server on your favourite OS. For those customers who want a VPS but do not want to manage it, we launched Managed VPS that gives you the power of a VPS, without the extra work.


New SSD Hosting & WordPress

The start of a new hosting platform with 100% SSD hosting, faster and more secure hosting at the same affordable prices. We also added more and more features throughout the years including our CDN, malware scanning, DDoS protection plus much more. This new platform allowed to also offer free wildcard SSL certificates to all customers on all platforms and a dedicated and optimised WordPress platform.


Hosting v1

To supplement our VPS offering and for customers who may not want to manage their own VPS, we launched our hosting platform. With our Linux platforms, our Hosting Control Panel enabled a fully managed interface for customers to easily manage and host their sites with us.


Cloud Next Begins

Starting in 2008 we began offering Cloud based VPS at affordable prices based on the VMware platform. We were the first to offer to the mass market competitive VPS hosted with VMware with both HA (High Availability) and DR (Distributed Resources).

This meant your VPS had 100% access to the resources it required 100% of the time. To support our customers using our VPS services, we started providing domain names and DNS management so customers were able to use us as a one-stop shop for their VPS and domain requirements.

Cloud Next Sponsorship

Grass roots sponsorship

In the Community

Grass roots sponsorship

We are proud sponsors of Derby based Spondon Rovers 'Cherry Trees'. Our on going sponsorship and support of the team allow for investment in squad kit supplies and future growth of the team as they get older. The match day kits mean the lads look (and feel) the part and hopefully play better as a result.

This is now our sixth year of sponsorship and we look forward to seeing the team and individuals grow; hopefully one or two might even make the Premier League (we'd be happy with the Championship!).

2024 Netherlands Cycling Trip

Cloud Next sponsorship helped to fund the May 2024 Derbyshire and Leicestershire Scouts cycling trip around the Netherlands - Fietskamp! The event was a weeklong trip, with a ferry from Harwich to the Hook of Holland, staying in campsites at Rotterdam, Baarn and Den Haag.

Nearly 50 young people participated in the event, with everyone cycling around 400 kilometres; an incredible achievement! Training started in August 2023 and progressed all through the Autumn, Winter and Spring, with most people completing around 500-1000km during that time. Well done to all involved.

WordPress Accessibility Day

We Continue to Invest & Innovate

New & improved features

Across our platform we continue to not only improve the existing features of our packages but continually develop and add new ones. Our WordPress staging & tools suite means managing and updating your WordPress site is easier than ever. Our bespoke reporting tools allow you an easy over site of all hosted sites and the resources they are using. Our custom PHP management tools ensure you can keep on top of the latest releases and updates to PHP and keep your sites fast, secure and up to date.

It's sometimes what you don't see

We continually invest & develop our network and infrastructure. HTTP/2 support, IPv6 integration, 1Tbps+ Anti-DDoS protection, Malware Scanning and a PCI-DSS compliant platform plus much more comes as standard with all of our hosting packages.

We do not and will never charge you extra for these features that provide faster hosting, site protection, provide security and future proof your Cloud Next hosting.
