Domain Names and Hosting

Domain Names

A Domain Name is the address of your website. It should include keywords and be easy to spell and remember. We can check for availability, register names for you and suggest variations if your preferred name has already been taken.

Our service includes domain forwarding, email forwarding, nameserver configuration and renewal management.

Website Hosting

Hosting is the webspace where your website lives on the Internet.

Our sites are hosted on a unique clustered hosting system, sometimes known as 'in the cloud' or 'cloud hosting'.

Load-balancing across multiple redundant web servers with fast storage means your website will be lightning-fast, all the time. Especially suitable for high-volume websites, or websites that are due to be featured on TV or on popular social networking sites such as Digg or Slashdot. Previously, solutions capable of dealing with a high volume of traffic were out of the reach of ordinary individuals, costing thousands of pounds per month.

You have the power of a redundantly load balanced cluster of webservers at your fingertips with online browseable backups every 15 minutes.

Registrations & Transfers

If you already have a domain name or hosting elsewhere and want to transfer it to our management, it can be a tricky business but we're well practiced and can handle the transfer for you.

Please be aware of fraudulent and underhand registrars who promise free or unrealistically cheap services. Once they've got your domain, it can be held to ransom with very expensive 'gotchas'.
