Website Hosting: Server Hosting

We have world class data centres on hand to offer you unsurpassed reliability and connectivty maintaining 24 hours, 7 days a week throughout the entire 365 days of the year!

Data Centre

To offer complete 24 x 7 x 365, the data centre is a secure, resilient environment for your website or web mail hosting solution.

The infrastructure is built on a N+1, so should any service fail, another backup service will intuitively take over the role.

server setup

By using only the latest technology and modern infrastructure, we put you in front of your competition. With servers here in the UK, you can be guaranteed of fast load times compared to other providers who offer servers based in the states.

By harnessing the latest technology, we are able to provide you dual hot-swap network capacity enabling fast maintenance and total fast performance to your business requirements.

All of our servers, web, mail and ftp servers are hot-swap redundant servers giving complete failover service should server ever go down. This means that should the mail server go down, another mail server would take over completely with all the identical configuration and setup; this in turn offers complete uptime and no emails will be lost.

To protect your business and your data, we provide dual redundant firewalls, to stop any unwanted attacks or entries.

Server Specifications

Our server specification is:

  • Dual Intel Xeon Processor 3.2GHz with 1MB Cache
  • 4 GB SDRAM
  • Dual 72 GB SCSI Drive (for the operating system)
  • RAID Mirroring (for the operating system)
  • Dual Power Supplies
  • Dual Gigabit Network Adapters
  • 100% Cisco Network Equipment

Our network uses CAT6 network cables throughout the entire data centre. What is CAT6 you may ask. CAT6 cabling holds four pairs of copper wire unlike standard CAT5 cables. This means that we are able to support Gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet and is twice the speed of CAT5.

By offering you Gigabit technology for your hosting solution, your connection will run at a speed of 1000 Mb/second. Other web hosting providers only offer 100 Mb/second.

If you are already with a web provider ask about their technology. Using only the latest technology and hardware, we are giving you unparalled hosting service at an amazing affordable price.


The data centre is connected to many different network backbone providers utilising BGP4 (Border Gateway Protocol) technology. Should any connection fail with the Internet, another connection will automatically take all the traffic, giving you no down time.

This means we are able to configure for you the fatest route possible should the connection be slow or that are problems with the current line.


All of the servers are backed-up with Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) to ensure smooth spike free power. Should a power cut occur, the UPS will take control of power for 5 minutes and within 20 seconds of a power failure, our redundant generators indefinitely take on the entire data centre load.

Again, this offers total uptime for your business requirements.


As with all data centres our data centre is manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so problems can be responded to promptly and effectively.

Only authorised listed access via Smart Card and invitation only is permitted to our servers. CCTV cameras operate throughout the entire data centre.

Cooling and Fire Suppression

To give you the best possible performance for your money, the data centre is temperature controlled to allow the servers to perform at its optimum rate.

Any detection of fire, our incipient fire detection system responds to the threat and informs of the issue immediately to our operators.
