ESSEX: Nimbus Hosting Is Headline Sponsor of EDA17

Nimbus Hosting – a company that specialises in providing web hosting services to digital agencies and ecommerce sites, has signed up as Headline Sponsor of the Essex Digital Awards 2017.

The appointment underlines the company’s commitment to supporting the digital sector and encouraging more businesses to improve their website infrastructure.

One of Nimbus’ missions is to allow digital professionals to focus on core projects rather than dealing with “hosting headaches” and the, often, complex details of IT.

Hosting services form the backbone of the internet as we know it, from simple HTML files to databases, all that data needs somewhere safe to call home.

While the cost is important, reliability is invariably the key factor for web designers and developers when choosing a host.

Nimbus ticks both boxes.

The company prides itself on offering a “personal and competitive service” in cloud hosting, dedicated servers and third party applications such as Magento, WordPress and XenForo.

To celebrate their connection with EDA17, Nimbus is offering a special promotion just for entrants of the scheme, which is the first and only awards in Essex dedicated to celebrating the online achievements of businesses, charities and schools from across the county.

Meghan, Marketing Manager at Nimbus Hosting, revealed that her team is “very proud” to be involved with the EDAs and offer two exclusive deals as a result.

“We are delighted to be Headline Sponsor of the EDAs, having previously taken the same position at the Digital Awards in both Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire.

“To celebrate working with the EDAs, we are offering all entrants of EDA17 a free migration to cloud hosting, so we’ll move all your sites over for you and we’re offering to migrate as many websites as you’d like us to.

“We’ll also throw in the first month free on any VPS (Virtual Private Server) or cloud based hosting packages and this is all covered by our six month guarantee.

“This is just our way of saying thank you to the businesses, charities and schools of Essex who have put a lot of work into developing their digital platforms.”

As Headline Sponsor, Nimbus Hosting will enjoy a range of benefits including the opportunity to present the flagship “Website” award at the EDA17 Presentation Evening at Boreham House on May 18.

Meghan added: “Both launching a new sites or transferring existing websites can be one of the most critical tasks in its lifecycle, but the our team are specialists at ensuring the transfer happens quickly, carefully and professionally.”

Robin Bailey, Chairman of the EDA Judging Panel, said: “Having known Nimbus Hosting from a number of the Digital Awards events now I can say they are a real pleasure to work with.

“They are also highly successful and respected in offering website hosting solutions, so if you are considering this or want to find out why it’s worth doing, I’d recommend you contact them.”

projectfive has signed up as sponsor of the “Website: B2B” award at SDA17 which takes place at HG Wells Conference & Events Centre in Woking on March 9.

While projectfive is there to support office PCs, Macs, servers, networks and telephone systems – among other things – they claim that working effectively for people is at the heart of their business. This success of this ethos was proved when they won the UK’s Best IT Reseller at the CRN awards last year (the Oscars of the IT world!).

Living by the motto “be helpful, make friends and stand out”, projectfive offers system and technology support to businesses of all sizes from one to 500+ people, across Surrey, Berkshire and Hampshire.

Speaking to the SDA team, projectfive Managing Director, Steve Coburn, explained why they chose to get involved.

“SDA17 is all about celebrating what’s best about Surrey’s businesses.  It’s a thriving business community with some shining examples of how to get the most from being online.  We’re really keen to support our local economy, so being able to support SDA17 helps us to give something back, and recognise those businesses who are really making a difference.”

The 30-strong team at projectfive offer a range of services, including help desk support, cloud computing, networks, connectivity, server monitoring, back-up solutions and cyber security.


Steve added: “We’re very proud of the recognition we receive at projectfive – lots of people know who we are and why we’re good at what we do.  We have very strong relationships with our customers and that’s why over 250 local businesses choose to outsource their IT to us.”

Robin Bailey, Chairman of the SDA17 Judging Panel, revealed he was delighted to welcome projectfive into the fray.

He said: “It is great that projectfive are to sponsor the ‘Website: B2B’ category at the Surrey Digital Awards 2017, a very competitive area.

“They are a highly respected IT company and it is fantastic to have them onboard.”

Their service is very simple and covers three core aspects: they install – which means they do project work (to install new PCs, software or Infrastructure to meet a specific new business need, or upgrade your existing IT).

They maintain – by making sure you receive the best solutions to fit your budget and business needs and carry out preventative maintenance and monitoring to ensure that your core systems are working properly.

And last but not least, they fix things when they break (because, unfortunately, that does happen where technology is concerned!).
