Web hosting is when you rent a space on a special computer called a web server (it’s called a web server because it ‘serves’ web pages to users on the Internet). This web server is always switched on and always connected to the Internet so people can visit your website 24 hours a day with 99.9% guaranteed connectivity.
We aim to make the process of getting your website up and running as easy and painless as possible. Some of the technical aspects of owning and running a site can be daunting that’s why we handle it for you. We’ll setup your account and database (if required) and simply send you the details within 24 hours so you can get started straight away.
We understand that your business requires a website that is available 24/7 with quick response times and minimal downtime, that’s why we try to make our service as efficient as possible and that includes web hosting.
The initial year’s worth of shared hosting is free when we build your website, so there are no hidden costs. After the first twelve months we’ll send you an invoice to cover the next year’s hosting, and this can be as low as £50 per year depending on requirements.
We have partnered with a leading UK web hosting facility so we can offer you the reliability and support you expect. We offer both Unix (open source) and Windows server solutions depending on your technology requirements. Our systems are designed for personal sites and SMEs on our shared infrastructure platforms which enable us to pass on the economies of scale; these are subject to out Acceptable Usage Policy. If you have a high volume site or require intensive processing requirements or root access we advise you speak to us directly about Virtual Private Solutions (VPS) or dedicated server solutions.
