You may not know this but deep in the heart of the West Midlands, in amongst the rolling green fields of Worcestershire, one of the largest domain name and hosting providers in the UK is thriving and growing faster than even the best Internet connection speed. The company is names.co.uk (Namesco Ltd) and not only does it have a base in the Midlands, it also has its anchor, a Tier 3+ aligned data centre in the Thames Valley.
The data centre is a 50,000 square foot facility split over four data halls and manned by dedicated team of engineers and security staff 24/7/365.
Network Operations Manager Jason Lamden said:
“Prior to joining Namesco Ltd and their sister company PoundHost, I was aware of their presence in the UK as a leading provider in hosted, dedicated servers from their purpose built, secure data centre in the Thames Valley.
When I was approached about joining the company as NOC Manager I knew it could be something special and the chance to join a forward thinking, fast paced company. I also knew it would give me the right opportunities to further develop my career in a future proof industry so it was an offer I couldn’t refuse.
Although there are a number of employees in the UK, you are always made to feel that you are part of a big family, the help and support offered is first class and everyone is very friendly and professional.
The salary is competitive and the range of benefits are better than our competitors in the sector. All in all it is a great place to work.”
Ranked within the top 50 hosting providers in the world, the names.co.uk Worcester office is based just outside the town centre. The building is lined with glass creating a bright airy feel and the vibrant, contemporary furniture in the communal areas creates an uplifting energy as you walk through the doors.
