Our hosting technology
PlatformWe 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.
Data centreWe 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.

Web Hosting TerminologyNew to web hosting? Here are some of the most common terms used:-
BandwidthA term used by web hosts to describe how much data can pass from the server your website is hosted on to people visiting your web site. This includes the files that make up your website as well as any data downloaded from databases or media files.
ccTLDA country code top level domain name. These domain names are associated with a country or geographic location, for example .co.uk (UK); .fr (France); and .cn (China). The ability to register these domain names from another country depends on the registrar's rules. For example, co.uk has no restrictions whereas .it (Italy) demands you are based in Europe.
Domain Name SystemThe system that maps domain names to the corresponding machine's IP addresses. This system is essentially a phone book that translates human friendly names into computer friendly numbers. Because this information is stored across multiple computers any updates to a domain (including registration and ownership details) can take up to 48 hours to work its way across all of them.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP)Uploading and downloading files to your web space is really easy and is often as simple as clicking, dragging and dropping. The process involved is called File Transfer Protocol (FTP). Don't be put off by the name, all this does is allow you to transfer files between your computer, where you can edit them, and your hosted server space, where people can access them over the web. Simple!For beginner's it is entirely possible to build a website using a script e.g. WordPress and to manage the content from within the platform chosen. To perform more advanced editing and customisation it sometimes becomes necessary to use FTP. Our hosting accounts include a security lockdown feature which you will have to open from within your online control panel, before you can access your files via this method. There are a number of FTP software solutions but the industry standard (which is free to download) is FileZilla.
HTMLHTML (Hyper Text Mark-up Language) is the first layer of a web page and deals with the content (the text, any lists, tables, quotes etc.).
LAMPLAMP is an acronym used to describe a set of open source software used by many people and businesses to save money and to prevent platform lock-in.Linux:Operating systemApache:Web serverMySQL:DatabasePHP:Program
MySQLMySQL (owned and developed by Sun Microsystems) is the world's most popular open source database. WordPress uses a MySQL database in addition to the WordPress core files.
Sub-DomainSub-domain names are domains that are part of the parent domain name. They are free to set up and can be useful if you have areas of your site you want to categorise e.g. dictionary.domain.com, thesaurus.domain.com
TLDTop Level Domain Names have no association with any countries and were amongst the first to be created. e.g. .com, .net, .org.
Web SpaceThe amount of space allocated to your website by a web host to store all your files and data. The more web space you have the more information you can store.
