The Team
LDC Team

UK2 Group has been providing internet services on a global scale for nearly two decades.

Its services include web hosting, virtual private servers, domain-name registration and management, dedicated servers, web design and a content delivery network.

Investing in a compelling customer offer

In April 2011 we backed management in a carve out from Cloud Group, supporting the growth of the business.

During a six-year partnership, we supported the management team in the expansion of its portfolio of hosting products while accelerating the development of its added-value 100TB offering.

In 2017 we exited its investment in UK2 in a sale to The Hut Group, one of the world’s largest online health and beauty retailers and brand owners.
