Hosting, so you can get on
One of the most important aspects of any website, especially a high-traffic one, is your hosting. As a public sector organisation you need reliability and your website needs to be able to cope with the increasing demand in traffic and the content-heavy nature of your site.
Our hosting solutions will make sure your website stays secure, reliable and fast. Now you know your website is sorted, you can get on with the important stuff.
It’s in the cloud
We understand the impact of a slow site, or even worse a site that goes down. That said, for many organisations, the cost of developing, maintaining and then hosting a website and an in-house support team is expensive. We take the hassle away, providing a best-in-class hosting service in the cloud, which – while simple and reliable – keeps your site up and running and your users happy.
Security is a big deal
We take security really seriously and our datacentre reflects that. It achieves the highest standards of security, resilience and redundancy possible in the UK, while our service desk uses the best security practices available for all requests. Here are the highlights:
- Hosting from a Tier-III-equivalent datacentre
- ISO27001 accredited
- PCi DSS compliant, bearing the BSI Kitemark
- Certified by HMG-CESG and G Cloud, and NHS IGSoC approved
- Regular, independent testing to ensure compliance and the highest of standards
Hosting, and then some
Our basic hosting includes Linux, Apache, APC, Memcache, MySQL and Drupal 6, 7 or 8, but with lots of additional features:
- Add A12 Find, a dedicated enterprise search platform
- Add a Varnish accelerator to your site
- Create multiple website instances and databases on the same stack
- Shell access and edge side include (ESI) capability
All our virtualised solutions sit on a KVM platform and we use Puppet to automate repetitive tasks, quickly deploy critical applications and manage change, scaling from a single server to 1000s, on-premise or in the cloud.
Infrastructure designed around you
We offer several infrastructure options to suit you and your set-up. If you are unsure what you may need, or have questions about our set-up, get in touch and speak to one of our experts.
- Standard – 2 webservers, 2 DB servers
- Advanced – 2 webservers, 2 DB servers and Varnish.
- Enterprise – All the above, plus SOLR search
All of our options can be integrated with content delivery networks (CDN) such as Edgecast, CloudFront, Fastly, Akamai and NTTE SCD.
Our hosting is also scalable and can grow with your website needs.
