We offer a highly professional, bespoke, professional web hosting service. Your technical manager will work closely with you to ensure that your hosting environment is set up to suit your needs. We take care of the hosting so you can concentrate on development and managing your site.

We particularly enjoy providing web caching with Varnish Cache, achieving TTFB (time to first byte) over HTTPS of the order of 60 micro-seconds. We will work closely with you to integrate seamless cache updates so optimal performance can be achieved.
For static content, we are happy to work with your choice of CDN to ensure that static resources are served as quickly as possible.
We are happy to provide an environment appropriate for any platform you wish to use. If we do not have an existing server that is appropriately configured, we will set one up specifically for your project. Whether it is WordPress, Joomla, Magento, Ghost or any other platform you desire, talk to us about how we can help.
Web Server Software
We currently work with either Apache or NGINX, depending on project requirements. With our preferred implementation of Varnish Cache, this choice is largely academic since we expect to serve the majority of requests from the cache. We are happy to discuss your preferences in this matter.
All of our servers are managed on the command line. We do not use any server control panels such as cPanel, since we prefer to have direct access to all features offered by the software in use. We will take care of all server configuration on your behalf. If you require direct access to the server yourself then this can be arranged.
Server Operating System
We work with Linux servers and generally prefer CentOS, due to its stability and careful upstream software management. We are happy to discuss your requirements to find a solution that meets your needs.
