We have two hosting offerings. These are starting points for hosting a base level website on a shared server or a base level dedicated server. Because the servers are fast and we spend time optimising your site(s) for speed, there is plenty of room for growth. Most sites stay with their original hosting plan:
Static website on a shared server: £285+VAT per annum
Managed Site on a shared server with cms: £370+VAT per annum
Managed Larger Site on a shared server: £580+VAT per annum
Managed Server: £1499+VAT per annum (upto 5 sites, depending popularity)
Secure Site (HTTPS): an additional £100+VAT per annum
Site Replication to another server: an additional £150+VAT per annum
Most of our customers are on this plan:
- Managed Site on a shared server with cms
- Secure Site (HTTPS)
- Site Replication to another server
Costing £620+VAT per annum.
We are by most standards a small hosting company. But, we are underpinned by one of the largest and (in our opinion) the most technically advanced hosting providers Oracle. Oracle provide a very fast, reliable and affordable platform that exceed their nearest competitor by a factor of two to three times. Oracle is technically challenging to setup and use, but is the perfect platform for us to provide a managed hosting service to you. Using Oracle, we can bring the type of hosting technologies that normally only much larger or very technical companies (like ourselves) can afford to have, to SMEs in the Sussex area.
If you want the service and support that a local company can provide backed by the most advanced hosting platform, then give us a call.
We only provide managed hosting. This means that we will look after you! We will do everything that is needed to get you up and running: install your site and its content management system. Or we can install and host other software and manage it for you. We will keep your content management system and/or virtual server and other software fully updated and resolve any issues the come up as a result of upgrading.
Unlike the virtual servers that other companies offer, which are much slower because they are virtual, your site will run directly on a real server.
We can also manage your domains and DNS for you if you host with us.
Domains registration or renewal: £40 +VAT for .com .net .co.uk for one or two years (see table below), DNS is free. We handle the whole thing for you, no need to worry about control panels or logins or renewal dates etc.
We can register, host and maintain a domain name for you at the following prices:
|Suffix||Registration Price||Renewal Price||Period of Registration|
These prices are subject to change and we will give 30 days notice of any change being implemented.
If your required domain name suffix is not listed above please contact us to discuss purchasing options.
We do not charge to administrate a domain name, other charges will apply for hosting a website and mail forwarding.
We will often host a website for a customer when we have been involved in the design and development of their website and prices for this service is included at the time of project specification.
Secure Certificate Hosting (SSL/HTTPS): £100+VAT per year.
PCI Compliance maintenance: £100+VAT per year.
DNS for an unhosted domain (where we do not host a site on that domain): £12+VAT per annum.
We invoice annually (tax point January 1st ) for 12 months hosting in advance. If we start hosting for you during the year we issue a pro-rata invoice to the end of the year.
