About HA Hosting
High Availability Hosting Limited was formed in February 2008 by Stuart Stones and Rory Delahoyde.
"We started the company by building High Availability Cloud Servers. The High Availability features of virtualisation are what we decided to name the company after."

Here at HA Hosting we’re a team of hardworking people, based in our Data Centre in Sheffield, dedicated to ensuring that your business isn’t dragged down by bad IT and data management. As a small business ourselves, we know first-hand how important is to have a reliable digital side to your business. Many of our current customers are other small businesses and IT companies, with whom we have built a reputation for reliability and technical expertise.
How can we help you?
Our main services are high speed web hosting and reliable online backup, both of which are important to make sure your business is always running as best as it can without you having to worry about website and data issues.
Being a data centre some of the other services we also provide are:

- Dedicated servers
All our services are backed by an SLA (service level agreement) and are supported by a passionate and highly skilled team of engineers providing around the clock infrastructure maintenance and support. If you’re unsure about what’s right for you, give us a shout and we’ll try our best to help you find the ideal solution for you and your business.
We never stand still!
We are always searching for areas where improvements or innovations can be made, as such we always have open ears for any suggestions and feedback so that we can improve and keep delivering the best service to you as we can.
If you ever are curious about what we do here and want to see if the data centre is right for you, give us a call or email and we can schedule in a tour of the centre, answer any questions you may have, and most importantly, make sure there are plenty of biscuits for when we put the kettle on.
Hear more from us:
If you’d like to hear more from us and stay in the loop about all things at happening at HA Hosting, then you can find our blog here for all sorts of content - from weekly updates to handy guides.
In 2008 we initially started with services that were based around hosting Virtual Servers running on VMware, hosted in third party data centres. We soon added hosted Microsoft Exchange and shared web hosting packages to the product line-up as well.
Following the rapid growth of the business, along with listening to the requests from our existing and potential customers – mixed with the big issue that we were quickly running out of room for expansion in our main supplier’s data centre, we decided the best move for the company, so that we could still provide the best service we could, was to build our very own Data Centre.
Doors to our new Data Centre opened in June 2009, which gave us the ability and means to start providing both Colocation facilities, alongside our now established Virtual Server Hosting (now known as Cloud Servers) and hosted applications.
Today we own and operate The Sheffield Data Centre for physical colocation, and operate a public Cloud service, based on Microsoft Virtualisation Technology. Our cloud platform runs all our hosted applications and customer Cloud Servers.
Following the successful opening of the Data Centre, in 2012 we leased another building in the same business park, and started fitting it out to provide future colocation space, as well as new offices, meeting facilities and rest areas for staff and customers – having everything located in one place is much easier! We moved into our new offices early 2013, next-door-but-one to the data centre!
We continue to expand and improve the services we offer, listening to our customer’s opinions and ideas. We are always searching for areas where improvements or innovations can be made. We never stand still!
