London, UK – 1 July 2009 – NetBenefit, one of the UK’s most experienced managed hosting providers, announces it is hosting the recently launched website HotelVoucherShop.com. The easy to use website is one of the largest voucher sites of its kind in the UK and offers gift vouchers for over 70,000 hotels in 5,000 locations worldwide.

Launched at the end of 2008 by HotelStayUK.com, HotelVoucherShop.com has experienced a rapid growth in website visitors and is already attracting over 50,000 unique hits every month with strong conversion rates. With over 60% of its business coming through the internet, website performance and availability is absolutely key for HotelVoucherShop.com.

Chris Orrell, managing director, HotelStayUK.com comments: “HotelStayUK.com has been running for over five years providing corporate voluntary benefits for some of the largest companies in the world. Demand from existing customers for a site where individuals could buy hotel vouchers for friends and family led to the launch of HotelVoucherShop.com. As the only organisation to offer such a wide range of vouchers from different hotel chains, we are experiencing significant growth.

“It was very important that we built an online presence that could support us now and in the future. NetBenefit already hosted our existing sites, HotelHippo.com and HotelStayUK.com, so we knew the team would design and build the best platform for our continuously growing database of hotel images, whilst keeping us online 24/7. When a server is down it translates into both lost revenue and lost goodwill. The support we receive from NetBenefit is excellent; there is always somebody at the end of the phone and we always receive a fast response. They go beyond the call of duty.”

Colin Bell, managing director, NetBenefit, concludes: “NetBenefit provides managed hosting for a wide range of clients from digital agencies to high street retailers but they all demand one thing, a professional managed hosting service with dedicated servers that will keep their website up and running, irrespective of the peaks in traffic. HotelStayUK.com and the newer HotelVoucherShop.com are great examples of NetBenefit’s team of experts providing a managed hosting platform designed to our customer’s specification allowing them to focus on growing a successful online business.”
