Where are your servers based?
VirtUK co-locate all of its hardware with in Maidenhead, England. This enables us to physically enter the datacentre should there be an issue with any of our hardware and replace it accordingly. Latency replies to all over Europe are minimal, meaning with our level of service and the performance of your virtual server, it means people outside the UK have a speedy hosting experience with us too!

How do I go about requesting a PTR/reverse DNS record?
