Bytemark started in 2001 as a consulting firm based in York, UK. Its directors are experienced software and network engineers Matthew Bloch and Peter Taphouse. They combined their experience to build one of the UK’s ‘nerd hosting outfit of choice’.
We have grown to a team of eight full time staff, preferring to automate and work on efficiency, leaving people to work on the hard problems. Having a relatively small team means that Bytemark is constantly aware of its customers’ needs and has no excessive management burden.
The company philosophy continues to be ‘built by hand’. Our software, servers and network are completely of our own design. Fewer suppliers mean we take responsibility for everything that goes on, at a high level of detail, and we think that gives our customers more confidence in the services they buy from us.
