Web hosting, site protection and back up
What is web hosting?
Whether you are having a brand-new website designed for you or you already have a website, it needs somewhere to live. From this place, it can then be visited and viewed by your customers, clients and ideal target audience. Providing a website with somewhere to live is known as web hosting.
To complement our full range of web related services we offer web hosting (including SSL hosting) that is:
- competitively priced
Robust, reliable web hosting for your business
For your piece of mind, your website will be hosted on DBS's UK based dedicated server which is only used to host the websites of DBS clients and customers. This means that, unlike other hosting companies who may place your website on a server with hundreds of other websites, thus placing it at risk from infection or being slowed down because of it, your website will only be sharing a server with a relatively small number of other websites.
Our dedicated server contains solid state drives (SSD's) which are set up in a way that if one fails, the others will continue to function meaning your website will stay online. As an extra precaution, we frequently monitor websites on our server for any downtime, so that we know straight away if there are any issues.
Cheaper web hosting often means unreliable web hosting and comes with poor customer service – this can mean a small amount of storage, slower speeds and longer waits if there is a serious failure. We believe that for businesses whose website is vital to their business, dedicated reliable web hosting is worth the additional investment.
Secure web hosting and site protection to keep your business safe
Security is as important to us as it is to you, which is why we have a dedicated firewall for our dedicated server which is configured to only allow access from certain devices.
As part of our website hosting package we offer site protection, whereby we continually check for the software and security updates and patches that are regularly released by developers to protect you from hackers, which we then install on your website.
Our web hosting package also includes a back up service, meaning that we store backups of your site files and databases to ensure that we can restore your website if required. The back-ups are made once a day and are stored in UK datacentres.
It is important to back your website up on a server on a daily basis. Otherwise, you may lose any recent changes to your website if there is a failure and it is only backed up infrequently.
Changing website hosting
If you want to move a web site away from your current web hosting company over to us then we will make things as smooth as possible for you.
