How long have you been providing managed dedicated servers for?
We have been doing this now for over 20 years.
Will you help me migrate my site?
Yes, we will. We will put together a migration plan for you, what this often looks like is that we will take an initial copy of your site and put it on a temporary URL for you to check it. Assuming it all works, we will then arrange a time with you to update your DNS and set it live.
Will you help me speed up my website?
Yes, often we find that we can make substantial improvements to your site speed by improving the dedicated server configuration. We will also go through your site(s) with you and work out what is causing it to go slow.
What hours of support do you offer?
We are here all day every day. All our managed dedicated servers come with 24/7 support.
Where are your dedicated servers based?
They are based in the UK. We have one location in London and one location in Reading.
Where are all the team based?
All the team are UK based.
What control panels do you offer?
We mainly offer cPanel and Plesk.
Do you offer VPNs?
Yes, we offer VPNs so that you can access your server over a secure connection but we also offer site to site VPNs.
Do you offer load testing?
Yes, we do and this is quoted on separately.
What is the difference between virtual and physical dedicated servers?
A virtual server exists on a cluster of physical servers meaning it is more redundant as if any of the underlying hardware fails, it automatically moves to another node. It also means it can easily be scaled. A physical server is a server that physically sits in a datacenter. If a piece of the hardware fails then there is risk that you may experience a brief outage whilst we rectify the issue. In practice we very very rarely see issues because of the way we proactively manage our servers. Physical servers are often more cost effective if you need quite a lot of resources.
Do you offer load balancing?
Yes, we do.
What operating systems do you offer?
We offer Windows and Linux. We will offer lots of different flavours of Linux and we can offer different versions of Windows. Just get in touch and we can make recommendations.
Is Firewalling included?
Yes, it is. Hardware and software firewalling are included as standard.
What monitoring do you offer?
We monitor your server every few minutes. This includes how busy it is, how much memory it is using and how much diskspace it is using. We will also monitor any specific URLs you would like us to monitor. We are big fans of monitoring as it allows for us to pick up on potential issues before they are problems.
Are you ISO27001?
Yes, and ISO9001.
How long does it take to get everything ready?
It varies depending on your requirements, it can be anything from 24 hours or a week or two.
What lengths of contract do you offer?
We offer a big range, we offer monthly contracts and multi year contracts, the length of contract will likely have an impact on the price.
