Since 2000 we've offered root access from fifteen pounds per month so that experts like you write their own code and have it run well, on a well-maintained network, without paying for more than you need. We can help you with sorting virtualisation, IPv6, migrating from virtual to dedicated and plenty of other difficult topics. Many of you are aware of Bytemark’s standing as a quality server service aimed at the technical market along with the browsing populace, but you might not know that they are soon to provide a very new service (hosting platform) and you can get in (and bring Perl with you) on the ground level. I know these guys, if we get Perl being used on their service they will work with us to do fun and excellent things with it, check it out at: http://bigv.io/.

UK2.net likes Perl, our entire platform is based on it, helping us to service hundreds of thousands of customers enjoying some of the best pricing for domains, web hosting and dedicated servers out there. We’ve been one of the largest players in the industry since 1998 and we’ve just launched a new VPS service allowing you to buy resources and launch as many smaller VPS as you wish on our cloud. These have auto failover, root access, an external console and loads more goodies for just £8.95 a month. No need to tell you this is ideal for dev environments where you need to kill and redeploy your server in an instant. The platform even allows you to create your own virtual machine templates or choose from one of our instantly deployable stacks. Not bad for less than a tenner.
