Who Are We?

We’re the internet experts and we’re part of your team.

Dean and Karl founded KDA Web Services Ltd. 20 years ago to be different, they didn’t want to be just another company selling hosting, anyone can do that.  They wanted to be a part of their customers teams, to go above and beyond just providing a space to upload a website to and to get to know their business, their needs and their issues and provide solutions to help them grow.

Twenty years on, that’s why our very first customer is still with us, as our many of our customers from our first few years of business.  Our customers don’t stop with us for a couple of months or even a couple of years, they stop with us for more than 7 years on average.

What Do We Believe In?

Honesty

We promise we’ll be honest with you in all dealings, all we ask is that you do the same.

Integrity

If we don’t feel something is right for you, we’ll tell you rather than sell you something not suitable.

Teamwork

We’ll work with you as part of your team, not against you, to get the best results for your business.  Ultimately this benefits us as well.

Environment

We believe in protecting our environment, we all have to live on this planet, not just work on it.

Taxes

We don’t use artificial corporate structures and schemes to avoid paying our fair share of taxes when we have benefited from the services they provide.

Change For The Better

We don’t want to stand still, we are always striving to be better and to improve our products and services.  If you spot something that will help us along the way then please do let us know.

You!

We’ve been privileged to work on some amazing projects over the last 20 years and help amazing businesses develop from one or two people to filling office floors with staff.  We’re here to help you grow, if your business grows, our business grows and we all benefit.

We’re Climate Positive

When it comes to our future and climate, neutral just won’t do.

That’s why we’re taking positive actions to reduce our current, past and future impact.

  • 98% of our electricity comes from renewable sources
  • With our partners at Ecologi we:
    • Offset home, work and travel CO2 emissions of employees
    • Calculate what our CO2 emissions would have been, and offset it
    • Calculate what our CO2 emissions would have been, and plant trees
  • Over the next 24-36 months we will offset all of our past 20 years of CO2 emissions

What this really means is that for each 1t of CO2 we would have produced, we’ve really produced 20Kg, offset 1t via projects in developing nations and additionally planted trees to soak up 1t, making a positive impact on CO2 emissions.

Where Did We Come From?  Where Are We Going?

As hard as it may be to believe, in 1999 PHP & MySQL were virtually unheard of, especially in the UK and this meant very limited hosting choices for a project Karl was working on for a client.  The website ultimately ended up being hosted by an American company as the main UK option didn’t provide acceptable support, performance or resources for the site.

What followed was a chat with Dean and several months of research and planning after which the ideas for what would become KDA Web Services were in place and it was time to put them in to action.  The rest as they say, is 20 years of history.

The future is bright, the future is… pink

With our 20th birthday approaching, we decided it was time to take a ground up look at everything KDA.

  • Our branding
  • Our services
  • Our future

In essence, we’ve come full circle, we’re re-focusing our efforts on you. We want to allow you to get back to what you’re good at, your own business. Your time and effort is better spent on your customers, not managing servers and software, that’s what we’re good at.

Keep an eye on our social media channels for exciting new developments as we move in to the next 20 years of KDA.
