We offer a range options, from affordable hosting on shared servers to customised hosting on a dedicated server. To give you total peace of mind, all our hosting options support encrypted https: connections by default and come with full daily backups.

Affordable shared hosting

Our most affordable hosting package is provided by Vidahost, an established and well regarded UK-based hosting company. Your website will be hosted in a secure, shared datacentre. These reliable servers are well suited to hosting WordPress sites and simple web applications.

Fast dedicated servers

For high-performance websites, we offer hosting through our dedicated servers with Bytemark, a York-based industry-leading provider of dedicated and cloud-hosted servers. This premium hosting service gives you complete flexibility, extremely high performance, maximum reliability and the highest level of security in a continuously monitored datacentre. We recommend this service for bespoke web applications and any sites that are mission-critical or likely to attract a high volume of visitors.

Your own dedicated server

Working with Bytemark we can provide custom hosting for large, complex applications or websites produced by us. With the management of Bytemark’s engineers and our system administrators, we can tailor your hosting to suit the specific needs of your application. Custom hosting for your website can be a regulatory requirement in some industries or sectors. The key benefits are exceptional security, superior server uptime and failsafe back-up systems.
