Hosting.co.uk Becomes First and Only MEGA Reseller in the UK

Hosting.co.uk looks to become one-stop shop for developers, announcing reseller agreement with new MEGA service

LUXEMBOURG, Jan. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The recently launched MEGA cloud storage service offers significant enhancements over previous service providers, both for businesses and individual users. Recognizing this value, Hosting.co.uk inked a deal to become an authorized reseller of MEGA service. Already an established force in the web hosting sector, Hosting.co.uk sees this arrangement as a golden opportunity to add another layer of value to its already superior service.

The developers behind MEGA analyzed the weaknesses among the current leaders in cloud storage. The file system was perhaps the most glaring shortcoming in many cloud storage technologies. In general, users must create and maintain files within the system. Sharing and collaboration is possible, but there needless hurdles to be overcome. In many cases, once-eager users drop out of the cloud, as they discover not everything is as simple as advertised. MEGA, on the other hand, embraces sharing as one of the essential principles of its service. Cross-account folder sharing is as simple as a mouse click. Even individual users can expect an improved experience -- MEGA can function seamlessly as a drive letter or file system mount.

Data security is a perennial concern for devotees of the cloud. Perceived vulnerability has likewise been an argument against embracing cloud storage wholeheartedly. Traditionally, server-side 128-bit encryption has been the sole defense against hacking and exploitation. MEGA features a browser-based encryption tool to which only users have access. This is a noteworthy step up from the security status quo. It's worth noting also that more user control nearly always equates to a better user experience.

MEGA does not require users to download any proprietary software. Instead, users can access their stored data from any system, anywhere, at any time. Data transfer is managed entirely on the server side. A "resume" function allows users to pause and restart transfers as necessary. Thanks to its substantial network of data centers, syncing of small or medium files is all but instantaneous.

"MEGA represents the next leap forward in secure cloud storage," said Hosting.co.uk's Frederick Schiwek. "For the cost of a cab ride, users gain access to up to 500GB of secure storage space. Speed is a big selling point, too: MEGA operates enough worldwide data centers to ensure rapid file transfers. Best of all, users have control over the encryption and decryption of their own data. We know that our customers will gravitate towards a service that puts them in charge."

Although based in the United Kingdom, Hosting.co.uk is pleased to offer its services to users across the globe. The company's high-capacity data network and top-shelf web hosting technology make geography virtually irrelevant. Versatile and responsive, the company caters to a myriad of specialized hosting needs, including hosting for WordPress, Magento and Drupal, as well as the content management system Joomla!. Naturally, Hosting.co.uk guarantees near 100% uptime, round the clock technical support and a competitive pricing structure. When one combines the exceptional hosting packages offered by Hosting.co.uk with the cutting edge cloud storage offered by MEGA, it's a sweet deal for anyone looking for an advantage in web development.

Even though it's just hatched, the MEGA team has its sights firmly set on the future. The company behind MEGA is currently courting new investment partners, as well as looking for more opportunities to collaborate with existing service providers.
