We believe that web hosting is more than just providing web space and FTP access. Our aim is to provide individuals and businesses with everything they need to express themselves on the Internet. Whatever you want to create a website for, be it a small family photo album or a full powered database-driven e-commerce website, your choice of web host is essential. The right web host will make the difference between a slow clunky site that has regular downtime and a site that is always available and blisteringly fast!
We only use Dell servers in our web hosting platform. Our platform is designed to be highly redundant, with all data stored in network disk arrays. Data is automatically synchronised between the arrays, so that in the event of an array failing, the remaining array continues to serve data to the servers with no downtime. Each array is also backed up each night to a separate backup cluster, which is then written to tape and stored o site.
We utilise uninterruptable power supplies and an n+1 generator setup to ensure constant and clean energy to our infrastructure. The data centre is protected by fire suppression, monitored by CCTV both externally and internally, has 24x7x365 onsite security and the building is surrounded by an 8ft perimeter fence.
We are automatically informed of new security patches through our vendor, and patches are applied within 24 hours. Our own platform is scanned each month for application vulnerabilities and we use a network scanner to identify weaknesses in our network.

Tips on choosing a domain name
Keep it short, keep it simple. To find your site, people need to be able to remember your address and easily type it into their browser. Aim to register the shortest name that your visitors will associate with your website.
.co.uk, .uk, .com, .eu, .net, .org...?
It is a good idea to register several similar domain names, particularly if you own a trademark for a certain name. If possible, register the .co.uk, .uk, .com, .eu, and .net. These are the most popular domain names and by registering all of them you can help to prevent cybersquatters and potential lost traffic.
Don't shell out large amounts of money
Some companies still sell domain names for as much as £100 per year. Make sure you are getting a good deal!
