What we as a business are trying to achieve is to turn your ideas into reality. To look after all your design needs so you don't have to. We realise that business owners are very busy people so why spend time stressing about content, photos, structure, mobile versions, eCommerce and more when we can take care of all that for you. It's what we do. We will work closely with you every step of the way to find out what you as a business are all about, we listen to what makes your business tick to help you find your rhythm as an online business.

We want to help you convey your business' personality on to your website, so whether it is your regular customers or potential new customers, we want them to be able to get a feel for what you are all about. We want them to keep coming back to you, as a business that cares and looks after its customers. We want your site to deliver a great customer experience, by delivering the perfect product and going that bit extra to give great service. Even if your site is about being informative and authoritative we want you to succeed and deliver that great customer experience. We are here to help you, bringing you and your customers closer together. Because the way we see it, your success is our success!

We also, through the help of our Search Engine Optimisation service, look to help drive traffic to your site through our web page enhancements and features which work in harmony with Google and other search engines. We will also take the time to find out what really describes your business and then through our enhancements use those to get your site ranked as high up as possible on the search result pages.

Thank you

About Our Technology

 

 

dell-logo-org Servers

We use only Dell servers in our Dedicated Server platform. All our Dedicated Servers utilise RAID 1 disk mirroring so either of your two disks can fail without impacting your website.

Drawing (28)  Network

Our network operates on industry-leading network equipment from Cisco Systems. All our switches and routers are developed by Cisco. Our network is based on 10 Gigabit technology, which means that it runs at a speed of 10000 Mb per second - most web hosting networks are limited to much less. Our network also utilises 100% CAT6 network cable, which contains four pairs of copper wire and, unlike CAT5, utilises all four pairs. CAT6 supports Gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet and supports communications at more than twice the speed of CAT5e, which is the other popular standard for Gigabit Ethernet cabling.

Drawing (29) Connectivity

We operate a multi-homed network utilising BGP4 technology. Simply put, we have multiple connections to the Internet with different backbone providers, should any connection fail our other connections automatically take all the traffic. Not only does this mean that we are very unlikely to lose connectivity to the Internet, but it also means that traffic moving to and from our network can choose from a range of paths to get to its final destination. This means that we have been able to configure the network always to take the fastest paths.

About our Data Centre

Drawing (30) Power Supply & Backup

Each rack has two independent power feeds, fed from two diverse connections to the national grid.

Should one or both of these  feeds fail 4 x 300kVA Riello UPS (N+1) battery backup systems will cover  immediate power requirements. All power to the cabinets is supplied via the UPS to maintain clean supply to the servers. If mains power is not restored within 10 seconds 3 x N+1 diesel powered generators will start providing full continuous power to the data centre. Spare fuel for the generators is stored on-site and contracts are in place with fuel companies to deliver continuous emergency fuel for a virtually unlimited amount of time.

Drawing (32) Climate Control

The data centre is fully climate controlled with N+1 Stultz DX Cybercool Air Conditioning Systems. The system monitors and controls the temperature and humidity levels.

Drip sensors located below floor monitor for any leaks in the system. Cold air is forced underneath raised flooring into the bottom of each server rack, and vacuumed out of the top providing maximum cooling efficiency. The position of each server rack/apparatus is calculated by a dedicated deployment team to further optimise cooling efficiency.

Drawing (31) Fire Suppression

Fire protection is provided by the FM200 Fire Suppression System which fills the sealed data centre with gas to extinguish any fire quickly without the use of water and without damage to any equipment.

Drawing (36) Secure Fob Access

There are two locking doors to go through for access to each of the separate data halls within DC2. These are locked and can only be opened using Secure Fobs which are only held by named staff.

Drawing (34) CCTV Monitoring

The data centre is monitored by CCTV both externally and internally. All CCTV images are recorded and stored for 3 months.

Drawing (33) Server Cabinets

46u high 1500mm wide x 1000mm deep, cable management system and 80% mesh doors. Cabinets are kept locked at all times.

Drawing (35) Secure Fence

The building is surrounded by a 8ft perimeter fence. With gates that are locked outside of normal business hours.
