Linux and Windows Cloud Hosting

Cloud hosting uses clusters of servers to deliver a stable and reliable platform capable of handling sudden visitor and increases in demand.

Extra Charges

Because it's designed to scale with your site's use, our cloud hosting service won't suspend your site if it exceeds the resouce quotas in your monthly plan.

Any additional usage will be charged at the following monthly rates:

Extra Data Transfer 1GB £1.00
Disk Space 1GB £1.00
Computing Cycles Each £0.05
MS SQL Databases 40MB £5.00
Mailbox Each £1.50

Quoted prices are monthly and will be applied to your next month's invoice. MS SQL Databases are an optional extra and are not included in plans as standard.

Cloud Clusters

Instead of buying a fixed, capped amount of space and bandwidth on a physical server, cloud hosting clients are purchasing a monthly allowance on a cluster of servers at a fixed price with any overage charged at the end of their current billing period.

If you're thinking this similar to the way your mobile phone works, you'd be spot on.

A viable alternative to a dedicated server

With ultra-low charges for additional bandwidth and disk space and a robust network infrastructure, Cloud Hosting is ideal for sites which are outgrowing shared hosting but do not need, or maybe do not generate the revenue to support, a fully dedicated server.

Custom packages also available

We've designed out standard hosting packages to suit the needs of a wide range of site owners but we're also very pleased to offer custom packages tailored to your needs.

If you're looking for a bespoke hosting solution please contact us with as much detail possible about your site and we'll be happy to provide a quote.
