All of our services are hosted on some of the latest Intel based servers which are housed in a secure professional data centre so that you can be sure that your website and email will be available for the maximum amount of time possible.

We use various operating systems on our network including Linux for the web and email hosting services, this is one of the most widely used, reliable and resilient operating systems for these types of services.

 

For a breakdown of what each feature offers and an explanation of some of the jargon used on this page click here.

 


Web Forwarding (Included in Email Hosting)

This service simply forwards your website name (www.yourdomain.com) to another set of webspace, for example another website you have with us or with another provider such as some free webspace with your broadband provider (www.your-isp.com/your-company).

This is normally used when you have multiple domain names and a single website. This is particularly useful if you register the .com and .co.uk variations of your domain name and wish to redirect one to the hosting on the other.

Email Hosting

The email hosting package includes the web forwarding service detailed above and an email service suitable for an individual trader or a small to medium company.

The package has 10 mailboxes which can be configured or amended via the control panel at any time using the administrator account. Each mailbox can receive as many email addresses as you like at your domain.
For example you could have a member of staff who deals with sales for your company, you could configure their account to receive sales@yourdomain.com and first.lastname@yourdomain.com.

Each mailbox has spam and virus filtering applied to incoming emails and those emails can be collected using the Webmail portal accessible from any computer or using an email program such as Outlook, Outlook Express or any other email program that supports POP3 collection.

Web / Email Hosting

The standard web and email hosting package is again designed for an individual trader or a small to medium company and will provide hosting for a company website and an email service for the members of staff.

The web hosting will allow you to publish a website that contains as little as a single page that just includes your company logo, contact details and a brief introduction to your company, even a small web presence can attract business that you may have not got without it.

However, if you want to expand your company onto the Internet or maybe even trade solely on the Internet this package has the flexibility to support the requirements to do that such as having dynamic order forms and shopping baskets or in the case where you sell a large number of varying products you could use a database driven website so people could search your products based on the keywords of items they are looking for, the options are endless.
