Reliable, secure website and email hosting services

When it comes to web hosting, there are a number of issues to consider, such as guaranteed uptime, website security, web space and traffic allowances, as well as cost. If you already have web space that you are happy with, we suggest using your current package. For new sites we recommend letting us set you up a hosting account on our servers.

We recommend the Linux hosting platform for the sites we develop, unless they are powered by an ASP database which requires a Windows hosting account.

The price of web hosting varies depending upon the website you are having developed, and the amount of web space and traffic you will need and whether or not your site requires the use of a database. See below for current prices per month for different web hosting packages:

We only use Dell servers in our web hosting platform. Our platform is designed to be highly redundant and all data is 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 offsite. We are automatically informed of new security patches via our vendor. 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.
