Hosting packages

Our web servers use up-to-date hardware and server software and are hosted in a secure UK data-centre with industry leading engineers on hand. As well as being UK based, our servers sit on one of the best UK high-speed data networks providing a fast, reliable experience for visitors when visiting our sites from the UK, Europe and the US.

We only allow a small collection of Tickbox clients on our dedicated servers and monitor 24/7 to protect your website from any security threats. In addition to this, our hosting management services offer server-side e-mail support, daily backing up of data, constant monitoring of server health, value added domain configuration and email services.
