  • Managing your website

    Managing your website

    While you're waiting for any DNS changes to take effect on your domain name, we provide a test domain for you to view your website on the live server. We're one of the very few web hosting providers to offer this feature.

    Sub-domains are great for organising your website content. They use folders in your main web space, but have special URLs to access the content. For example, shop.yourdomain.com could be used for your product pages, and support.yourdomain.com for help and FAQ pages.

    Display your own custom error pages whenever your website visitors encounter a problem. For example, display your site map instead of a "Page not found" page.

    SSH secure shell access (Linux web hosting packages) gives access to your web server's command line, as easily as using your own computer. You can move files around and upload / download files using SFTP.

  • Bandwidth

    Unlike other web hosting providers we don't restrict bandwidth or charge you extra. But we still give you the tools to track your website's bandwidth usage, including filtered reports and email alerts. Included with all web hosting packages.

  • Load balancing

    Load balancing

    Ensure your business website always stays online with our load balancing technology. Your website will be hosted on multiple servers for even greater reliability and performance. By sharing visitors over multiple web servers, load balancing helps to improve the reliability and speed of your website.

    Your website stays online even if one web server is temporarily unavailable - the site will be served by an alternative web server. If you're expecting a large number of customers to visit your website as your business grows, load balancing is the ideal solution.

    Load balancing is included with our Gold & Platinum hosting packages.
