The UK's #1 domain registrar
Wouldn't it be great if there was something with dedicated resources that could give you the extra performance you require and still be affordable?
This is where 123-reg Cloud Servers come in. We have combined virtualisation technology with dedicated hardware resources to overcome the biggest performance based bottle-neck experienced with VPS. Instead of sharing hard disk resources, as you would on a VPS, each server on cloud hosting has dedicated hard disk resources. This means not only is performance improved but also the level of security as your data is more secure as you are not sharing a hard disk with anyone else.
Our new UK Cloud hosting gives you a cost effective solution with near dedicated server performance.
Please note: Windows 2012 ISO/OS cannot be used on any 123-reg Cloud Server.
Host multiple websites
Our Cloud servers enable you to host multiple websites with high user volumes on a single server and fully utilise the 100 Mbps internet connection!
Install your own OS

It sits in-between VPS and Dedicated Servers. Taking technology from each they provide a combination of both virtualised and dedicated resources. What this effectively means is Cloud servers can benefit from a significant increase in performance over a standard VPS or a dedicated solution.
UK Cloud Servers can be used in the same way as a virtual or dedicated one, so they could be used for hosting a single or multiple domain names for email and websites. They could be used as application servers, database servers, file or mail servers, name or web servers or any other type of servers that requires internet access.

No. Sorry, but every provider is different, and that makes it hard for us to provide a transfer service. However, our low cost Cloud based hosting packages do use technology that is considered standard, so there's a very good chance your website or server configuration will be compatible with our packages.
With cloud based hosting, the CPU and memory are shared out (as in a VPS), with each Cloud Server guaranteed a minimum level of access to them. The most significant difference is that with Cloud web hosting there are dedicated hard drives which are able to overcome the common bottleneck of VPS where multiple users are accessing the same drive(s) at once. Also, Cloud web hosting is more reliable and cost effective than dedicated hosting.
Parallels Bare Metal is the cloud-ready virtualisation solution we use for our Cloud Server platform. It is software that allows multiple Cloud Servers to run simultaneously on the same physical server.

You can buy a Cloud Server hosting package on either a monthly or annual basis, just like with a VPS or a dedicated package. This gives you the freedom to control your own contract period.
If you decide the package you've bought isn't right for you, give us a call within the first 7 working days. We'll refund what you paid - excluding the cost of registering any domain names you have, because domains can't be "unregistered" once you've chosen them.
