A little information on our business

About us - ValueVPS

ValueVPS (formerly 'Starteck Online') was started by, David Austen, almost by accident! He owned and managed a very large and cumbersome web site similar in principle to the well known 'Friends Reunited' web site. This web site outgrew a few hosts, was dumped by a few others that couldn't handle the resources the site needed and eventually ended up on it's own dedicated server.

As the web site was a free site, he needed to find a way of reducing the costs of the dedicated server so in a moment of pure genius (or madness!) he decided to sell some of the spare space and resources. He wasn't out to make a profit, he just needed a way of reducing the financial burden his hobby was placing on him.

Before he knew it, the hobby had started to grow considerably - so much so that he knew he needed to turn his hobby into a business. This didn't bode too well with his 'real' job so he went full time working for himself in the hosting business and secured himself a placement at the Teesside University Business School (Teesside University, Middlesbrough, England) and graduated in November 2007.

The business now has a number of servers in France, the United Kingdom and the United States and customers from every corner of the globe. In May 2008 ValueVPS began offering dedicated servers and full server management as a part of it's portfolio. ValueVPS is going from strength to strength as many of our long term customers can attest.

In mid 2010 ValueVPS and FS Hosting merged and formed ValueVPS Limited, making David Austen and Paul Bloomfield directors. Paul bought his Magento expertise and SEO skillset to the ValueVPS portfolio as well as providing top notch technical support. Within a month of the merge. Angela Lordon joined ValueVPS to carry out general office duties. technical support and to occasionally manage the LiveChat.
