Learn more about our unique approach to hosting your website
Unlike with other web hosts, your website isn’t tied to one single server but makes use of a whole platform, meaning that you get incredible reliability and speed at an unbelievably low price. Traditional shared hosting performance is subject to how much traffic you get and what other users are doing, but our platforms are load-balanced and automatically scale to meet resource demands at no extra cost to you. Your website stays online and runs fast so you can concentrate on your business.
Automatic updates – Worried about your site being up to date for security? Don’t worry, we automatically update your core installs with the latest security fixes and new features as soon as they’re released.
Built-in plugin monitoring – Our systems are always running checks to identify any potentially abusive plugins and automatically block any that may put your website at risk or have a significant impact on performance.
StackCache – This unique plugin enhances your website caching for consistently quick loading speeds
Secure browsing and peace of mind for your visitors
Protect visitors’ personal information, and encourage confidence in your practice with an SSL certificate.
What is an SSL certificate?
An SSL certificate is displayed for websites in the form of a padlock icon in the address bar, a green bar, and a URL that starts with https://. Behind the scenes, this means that the website has been verified and any information passed between the server and a visitor’s web browser is securely encrypted. An SSL connection is vital for any website that requests or stores personal information such as contact details or payment information.
SSL is the globally recognised standard for secure data encryption between server and browser. All our SSL certificates are provided and verified by leading security experts GlobalSign.
A must-have for any serious website owner
An SSL certificate not only signals trust and authority to your website visitors, it also helps protect them when browsing your website. It prevents data interception and shows your business has been validated, ensuring complete peace of mind for your visitors.
Search engines such as Google have openly stated that they view an SSL certificate as a mark of trust and that having one can directly improve your search engine rankings.

With technicians onsite 24/7 every day of the year and a resilient national network for ultimate reliability, you can rest assured that your websites are safe with us.
We’ve utilise the latest hardware to ensure optimal performance and a faultless design with no single point of failure. Each server has Dual Intel Xeon CPU E5-2640 v3 octa-core processors with hyper-threading for 32 logical cores and 64GB DDR4 RAM. All MySQL and MSSQL databases are hosted on dedicated 32 core servers with 128GB RAM and full SSD storage.
We utilise an incredibly resilient high performance storage platform utilising 100% SSD storage arrays in a RAID 10 configuration, with battery-backed hardware RAID cards. Storage arrays are then replicated across multiple servers so in the highly unlikely event that disks, arrays or entire servers fail there will be no downtime or impact to your site. We take daily data backups, which are stored at a secured offsite facility. We also run our own bespoke Web Application Firewall that continually monitors and filters out threatening requests before they can even target your website.
