Website Hosting Explained

In order to keep your website online you will also need a hosting package, that is somebody keeping your website online. A good service provider will mean your site loads quickly and is kept online as close to 100% of the time as possible.

Between January 2009 and June 2011, the hosting solution we use has averaged 99.999% uptime with a 5 minute monitoring interval. Please feel free to contact us for a copy of the independent monitoring report. The speed of our site is down to the hosting system we use. When you buy web hosting from us, you share our platform so you get the same, unmetered and uncapped speeds.
