Private Eye also has a number of readers who live and work abroad and the website provides a summary of the magazine's content and is also invaluable in collecting new business in terms of subscribers.

Private Eye needed a hosting partner who provided reliable servers with a 99.995% uptime guarantee. Geoff Elwell of Private Eye said:

"Our web site is very important to us because of the amount of subscription business we generate from it and as a means to introduce new readers to the magazine. It is important to us to have an increasing online presence much like any other magazine. Memset® have proved to be very reliable and professional, with exceptional quality and speed of service and support."
