About donhost.co.ukDonhost was established in 2000 as a reseller of another hosting company's services by Daniel Conlon. Donhost expanded rapidly and moved to their own servers in a shared data centre in mid 2001.
The real world experience Daniel had of reselling gave him an understanding of the limitations and inadequacies of reseller solutions on the market at that time, enabling him to create the perfect reseller solution.
In April 2005 Donhost became part of tier 1 ISP PIPEX communications (currently known as GX Networks from Mar 08). PIPEX specialises in a range of internet services including internet access, security services and voice services and is the chosen provider for most of the Times' Top 100 UK Companies.

The software is set up more than 6 years ago and no modern website will run in such an outdated environment.
