As part of the process of creating your online presence we will discuss with you various options for hosting your web site and email accounts. There is no requirement that we provide your hosting for either service, but allowing us to do so gives you a single point of contact for all issues relating to web design, web site availability and email access.
The packages outline below are the three most common requirements, but we are able to provide a wide range of specifications and additional features to suit your specific needs. These will be discussed as part of your site development process.
website hosting packages
hosting is where your website will be served, along
with other client websites, from one of our powerful
managed servers and can be bought in a variety of
configurations starting at just £120 per annum. These packages allow
you to run your site under your own domain name
and we also provide email services, firewall protection and assistance in setting up Google Analytics to track your site visitors..
The shared website
hosting packages are quick and easy to setup, very
cost-effective to run and you have the peace of mind
that your server is being managed and maintained
by our professional engineers, and is hosted at the
secure TeleCity data centre next to Canary Wharf.
£120 / year
E-Commerce Hosting Packages - including SSL certificate
For customers with online stores (or those who simply require a greater level of security for their users), we offer a hosting package designed for e-commerce sites. This combines the shared hosting described above with an SSL certificate which allows for secure access to your site - making it suitable for users to enter credit card details or other sensitive information.
This package also includes assistance with ensuring that your website and hosting package are PCI DSS compliant. PCI DSS is a security standard that must be met if you are dealing with credit/debit card payments and involves answering a questionnaire and configuring security scans of your site. We can assist with the initial set up of an account with a security assessor and also make any necessary updates to ensure any issues raised by the scanning process are resolved.
£340 / year, or £100 / quarter
Dedicated Virtual Servers
For busy e-commerce sites or those who simply require an even greater level of performance and security we are now able to provide dedicated virtual servers. A number of these virtual servers run on one much more powerful machine in our datacentre, but provide you with an entirely isolated installation of the operating system and web server. All of your data is separated from other customers' just as it would be if you had your own physical server. You also have a dedicated processing power and memory to ensure a consistent level of performance.
Dedicated virtual servers also allow us to provide customised software installations, dedicated firewall rules, and many other facilities that would be unavailable when using a shared server. Full details are available on request and will be discussed as part of your site development.
This is a fully managed service, meaning that we will ensure your server is regularly updated with the latest operating system patches, install or remove any software packages you require and configure firewalls and other security settings as necessary. All servers are monitored continuously and our staff notified by email and SMS in the event of any failure.
From £770 / year, or £210 per quarter
