Free Trial

"We have never transferred a site that we did not make run faster"

The speed your website loads has a direct correlation to the conversion rate. In other words the faster your site loads the more money you make. In other words the faster your site loads the more money you make.

We can make your site load faster than any other provider and we can generally do this with less hardware. In a recent case study, we transferred a client from a dedicated 'Magento optimised' server to our VPS platform. Not only did the client save over £300 per month in hosting costs but we were able to halve the load time of their site. This was achieved without the use of a full-page cache or Varnish.

We have never transferred a site that we did not make run faster. We hand-tune each site. Testing different caching methods and benchmarking the results for you before and after.

Free Monitoring, Mangement, Migration & Backups/DR

Every minute of every day your site is checked from a random location across the planet to ensure that it is up and running.

If for any reason any 1 of these checks fails an alert is sent to our help desk team who will immediately investigate your site and find out what the problem is.

Our server monitor constantly measures server resources and capacity and alerts the help desk team the moment any of these breach the limits we have set as safe. Monit runs in the background constantly checking to make sure that services are up and running and will automatically fix problems it finds on the fly.

For most hosts Management is an expensive additional extra to your hosting. Not with Dx3 webs. We will take full care of your hosting environment ensuring updates to core software are applied and making sure your server is running within limits.

We are happy to transfer any site from its current host to our servers. Simply select “Transfer my site” when you place your order and we will request the relevant details from you.

Every package from the largest server cluster to our development containers come with a complete 7 day rolling back up for files and databases. These backups are stored in a different Data Centre to your Magneto site. This means that every night we take a complete backup of your database and store this locally along side your Magento code base.

This backup and your Magento files are then copied off server. These files will then be held for 7 days. This means that at any point you can roll your site back a full 7 days in the case of an emergency.

Simply outstanding. Andy and the team go above and beyond.


Fantastic support! Quick to respond and have always helped us out when in a jam.


Very Fast Hosting coupled with Excellent Service Having been with an alternative hosting company for several years for Magento websites, the speed of the sites gradually got slower and slower to the point that it was seriously affecting conversion rate. I decided to switch on a Sunday morning. By the Sunday night the first site was moved over by DX3, and the site was noticeably faster. Contact throughout the day was constant through Skype and I could not have asked for better service. Very happy customer.


We have been using DX3 for over a year and have always found them very knowledgeable. Their support is great and on more than one occasion they have gone above and beyond what would have been expected.


Top Notch - Been with them for almost 5 years and have to say they are very responsive, knowledgeable, helpful and human!
