Website hosting and service packages

We can provide various hosting and service packages depending on the type of website and levels of traffic that can be expected


Our Hosting and Service Packages are for people who need their website to be fast and reliable. Too often websites are built with complex content management systems which website owners are not able to use. We find that with a little support our customers can really own their website, updating existing pages, developing new content and running campaigns.

The Standard Package is a comprehensive combination of fast, reliable hosting with all the service elements that we typically find our customers need.

If you want to improve on the Standard Package then you can build your own Custom Package below.

Standard package £199 per year
Server
Standard 'VPS' server A solid, reliable virtual server in a UK datacentre. Faster than shared hosting. If you're comparing with other providers, look at their managed VPS servers. You can specify a better server using the Custom Package.
Secure connection
SSL certificate If your site is not using the more secure HTTPS (padlock in browser) now then Google is probably flagging it as insecure. You need the SSL certificate for that.
Backups
Daily on-site backups We can easily roll back to a previous version of the site if required.
Monthly off-site backups A second layer of security. We can supply this backup to you for your own peace of mind.
Service
Server management We manage the server so you don’t need to worry about it.
Malware scanning and removal In the unlikely event that the malware scanners find something untoward we'll remove it asap.
Support relating to Domain hosting and DNS Clients usually need help with their domain settings from time to time.
Support relating to the hosting during normal office hours We take care of all the technical aspects of the hosting and we can explain things in plain english.
Support relating to the content management system (CMS) during normal office hours We can help by phone or email if you're having trouble doing something in the back end. If we can't talk you through it and it's quick for us to do we'll usually just do it at no charge.
Uptime monitoring Checks your site every 5 minutes to make sure it’s live. We’ll get an alert if there’s something wrong and we’ll be on the case asap.
Site repair and reinstatement If anything goes wrong we’ll get if fixed as quickly as we can.
Additional design or development work Charged at our standard rates. Let us know what you need and we’ll send you a quote to approve.
60 day checkup Not more than every 60 days:
Wordpress updates If the website is built using Wordpress then we'll make sure Wordpress is up to date
Plugin updates If the website is built using Wordpress then we'll make sure the plugins are up to date
Work required after updates Some updates cause things to go wrong, so we make sure we fix things if that happens*
Visual inspection We'll take a look through the site to make sure it's as it should be
Migration Free when you switch
We’ll take care of everything for a seamless switch over
We’ll probably need details of your existing hosting and logins as well as domain hosting details
Custom package

Common misconception

All hosting is equal

It’s just like buying gas or electricity, you need to get the cheapest.

The reality

The less you pay, the worse it will be and the more frustrating the service will be.

No. 1 reason...

...people switch

Their hosting was too slow or unreliable

The difference...

...between what we offer and hosting companies

123reg, GoDaddy, Host Gator, 1 and 1; there are hundreds of them.

They all sell hosting with some level of support, but they don’t provide support for the actual website. We do.

Three things...

...that can all be in different places

Domain hosting

Domain name servers
