Quality UK Web Hosting By Invitation …
Since 2004, 24/7 Hosting has offered web-hosting only to known clients or those recommended by trusted associates; principally, small businesses and low-bandwidth customers, with very few exceptions. We believe and strive in providing a strong personal service to our customers, to maximise their benefits and meet their expectations, then maintain those relationships long-term.
What are their priorities? Well, one of the most fundamental objectives of these types of client is RELIABILITY — it's as simple as that! Everyone likes affordability too — the problem with finding an ultra-reliable hosting package is that they're more expensive than those of typical basic shared hosting providers. Why? 99.995% uptime (as close to the perfect optimum as one may sensibly expect without using mirrored servers) requires a web server of top-quality and one that is not shared with any other hosting companies or unknown end-users — we have our own Cloud servers exclusively for our customers, fully managed 24/7/365 by our staff and the datacentre technical support team. We currently use Dell hardware, fitted only with solid-state drives (SSDs), for ultra-reliability and speed.
Additionally, we protect our customers' data by backing up their accounts i.e. website data and email, hourly, daily, weekly and monthly!
How many providers do you know who take that much care? It's one thing to have security against downtime (by using fully-redundant hardware systems), but who can honestly say they have never deleted an important file or email and come to regret that no data backups were in place? It matters not that the server is still running when a key file or important email is missing in your web account and YOU were responsible! We've got you covered ...
Furthermore, sensible use of bandwidth and load spreading, along with our policy of refusing to allow any known resource-hungry websites to be hosted, e.g. no Warez; no Bit Torrents; no Anime; no ROMs & Emulators; no IRC, no streaming; no commercial Bulk advertising (SPAM) etc. All of these exclusions help to maintain optimum reliability and uptime!
In respect of affordable Web Hosting packages, we strongly believe that there's no such thing as unlimited resources like disk space, bandwidth, email accounts, databases etc., whereas we do believe that we offer generous and feasible solutions, ALWAYS well-within the capabilities of each web server, with huge overheads of bandwidth available should your traffic levels go ballistic! All packages are bespoke — what you need, when you need it, unless you're simply far too big to fit our particular business model — in our case, small(ish) but perfect is the most desirable combination! :)
