The hosting company uses the SpamExperts module to keep spam away from its email servers and it also uses MTVScan to perform thorough scans of the websites of various hosting clients and find potential security loopholes.

In its Security Bundle, it provides multiple modules including SSL certificates, MTVScan and SpamExperts with almost 25% saving if you go for these plans separately.

Whether you want to set up a new website on your blog using WordPress, Joomla! or Magento (for shopping cart) or you want to migrate an existing setup, the interface is quite simple.

Final thoughts on EUK Host

Everything you need to host a business website, you can get it on EUK Host. Although the allocation of hard disk space between different plans – cPanel as well as Windows – does seem a bit random, but however much space you get, it should be enough for an average business. A good hosting environment. A free domain with every signup although you may have to sign up for an annual plan to be able to avail a new domain.
