Hantsweb and Hantsnet
Hantsweb is provided by Hampshire County Council as a gateway to services in Hampshire.
It delivers all of Hampshire County Council's services but is also the place to find out about all things Hampshire.
We work with many partners and host their content to enable them to reach their customers in a cost effective way. Here are some of the partners we are currently working with:
Hantsweb is currently most visited local authority website in the UK (according to statistics from Hitwise from Experian).

Hantsnet is the powerful ICT infrastructure of computers, network connectivity and software applications that enables Council staff to login to their personalised set of IT tools from any office location across Hampshire.
The Citrix ® thin client technology used by Hantsnet has made supporting and upgrading applications on thousands of desktops in hundreds of locations far less expensive and time-consuming. All applications are administered and supported centrally, and delivered to users over the network.
Hampshire County Council has always had one of the largest and most integrated public sector IT infrastructures, and in 2005 completed a major programme to migrate from its proprietary network architectures and mainframe systems. The scale of the change was unprecedented with over 1000 networked sites and 13,000 devices.
In addition the in-house developed suite of financial and human resource systems had to be replaced with a modern Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP) system. The SAP ® package acquired as the County’s ERP system has nearly 12,000 users and processes around 180,000 purchase orders annually
Originally developed for Hampshire County Council desktop users, the application architecture is flexible and scalable enough to enable the council to provide IT services to other local government organisations.
The five year project to migrate to the new Hantsnet infrastructure has
- successfully implemented a complete set of new technology to time, budget and quality
- created a flexible platform supporting flexible working and providing the widest possible availability
- generated savings of at least £4 million a year
