Business in the North is Booming

The Northern Powerhouse is an economy of over 15 million consumers, 175,000 business investors, 8 universities, one-third of the UK's apprentices, over 65,000 start-ups (in 2014), and £60 Billion worth of exports to over 100 countries. We're proud to be one of the many working cogs in this booming economy and excited to help you reap the benefits too.


Our roots

Every one of our directors has experienced the highs, lows and challenges of growing a digital business from small to national. Our roots are in the northern tech industry where we’ve contributed to the growth of businesses in e-commerce, hospitality, manufacturing, travel, software development and the service industries to name just a few. At Northern Bloc, we focus all our skills and experience into delivering great hosting, perfect for small to large online businesses, developers and agencies.

We believe in simplicity

To deliver you a solution that works with no complications, we offer simple contracts with optional add-ons. With Northern Bloc, you can purchase based on the amount of bandwidth you need, without having to weigh-up the pros and cons of complicated packages and compromising on features. This means every one of our customers receives the exact same benefits and features for the bandwidth they need. Optional add-ons include remote backup, managed hosting and SSL certification.


Security is our absolute priority. With us, all of your data is stored on servers with multi-level security on-site. Power to our servers is designed to be uninterrupted with backup generators in place, and our servers are physically protected by 24/7 manned security, CCTV, and identity checks, meaning only we have access for maintenance.

What locations do you offer your service to?

Although we are based and deeply rooted in England’s Northern economy, we offer hosting anywhere in the UK, EU, AUS, US & CA.

How much does it cost?

All prices can be found on each hosting type page. They are dependent on the amount of power you require but as rule of thumb vary from £65 to £200 per month.

What’s the timetable for getting started?

After your initial enquiry, we will send you a quote within 24 hours. Once we receive confirmation that you’re happy to proceed, we will send you a contract for agreement and set you up on our server within 48 hours of the signed contract being received. From there you're ready to go and will be invoiced at the end of every month.

What makes you different from the others?

We’ve been in your shoes; growing a business that needs solid hosting with no fuss, and the know-how to deliver that to you smoothly on a monthly basis. We understand your requirements for speed, security and the up-time that a business needs, and work tirelessly to make our systems as bullet-proof as possible.
