Primal Parking, an online marketplace that connects owners of private parking spaces to those who want to rent them, has chosen cloud computing and managed hosting services provider, iomart Hosting to provide its secure web hosting.

“We had discussions with several hosting companies but iomart Hosting was the only one that could give us the secure, bespoke platform and the personal service we needed,” commented Harrison Woods who came up with the idea.

The 22 year-old Manchester University geography students idea won £60,000 of investment from Theo Paphitis and Peter Jones when he appeared on BBC’s Dragons’ Den.

Sarah Haran, managing director of iomart Hosting, added: “Harrison’s Dragons’ Den appearance was a big moment for Primal Parking and we expected that there would be a surge to the site as a result of the show.

“We are delighted to be providing round-the-clock secure hosting for this exciting new venture and we wish the team every success.”
