Cancellation of your Web Hosting service from brightsolid

Your custom over the years has been very gratefully appreciated and we, as a proud Dundonian business, have been delighted to have such staunch support from our community since we were founded as Scotland Online in 1995.

However, over the last 5 years we have grown our business by focussing on delivering high quality, secure IT services for some of the UK's leading enterprises and developing our portfolio of online businesses, including Find My Past, Scotland's People, The British Newspaper Archive and Friend's Reunited. We no longer feel that our low cost, basic Web Hosting service fits with these core offerings.

We hope you have found our Web Hosting service to be a reliable and cost-effective option however, we are no longer able to provide the quality of service you deserve at our current price while operating profitably in this part of our business.

As a result, brightsolid's low cost, basic Web Hosting service will be discontinued on 31st May 2012.

To keep your website online you have two options:

brightsolid's high performance, secure, Virtual Private Server (VPS) Infrastructure is used by leading UK organisations to host their business-critical web applications. Our prices start at 900 per annum for dedicated high quality equipment and web hosting platform tailored to your requirements. We would be delighted to discuss this with you if this is of interest.

Alternatively we have listed some other suppliers below who we suggest you contact directly. (We are not able to recommend or support the service provided by any other supplier but will do what we can to make sure that your transition is as smooth as possible.)

As always, if you have any questions about this letter or your current service please contact our Dundee-based helpdesk on 0845 271 1127.
