Data centre & hardware
Our intelligent and advanced UK data centre is kitted out with premium hardware and the latest and greatest security and environmental technologies. 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 invested heavily in our 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’ve developed 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.
If you run WordPress, you’ll want to take advantage of our bespoke WordPress platform. We don’t repackage standard shared hosting as ‘WordPress Hosting’; we’ve gone above and beyond to create a completely separate managed platform. It’s optimised specifically for WordPress speed and security with lightning fast StackCache caching, MySQL resource handling, and automatic WordPress core updates all backed by fantastic hardware and support.
Automatic WordPress updates – Always forget to update WordPress or simply have too many installs? Don’t worry, we automatically update your core WordPress 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. It works automatically, but you can manage it yourself directly from your WordPress Dashboard if you prefer.
