Web hosting is something everyone needs.
We work with a huge range of clients from across all industries, down to individual clients looking for personal websites. Across our website, we’ve compiled a few FAQs to explain how our many services work, but we thought we’d put together some Hippo Hosting FAQs on what you can expect when working with us.

What’s with the hippo?
His name’s Harry the Hippo! And we’ve got a whole blog about that, but long story short, our MD’s daughter designed the characters and they became the perfect mascot.
