Hosting Technical Data

Standard Configuration

We run the latest stable Ubuntu Linux, with Apache 2 as the web server, Postfix for email transport and Courier for IMAP and POP mail access. Please contact us if you wish to see a full description of the configuration.

Server Virtualization enables us to offer a service balanced between your budget limitiations and your performance requirements. As your usage grows, so more resources can be dedicated to you, enabling a trouble free upgrade path.

In the unlikely events of a physical server failing, the virtual host can be transferred easily to a different machine ensuring minimum down-time.

Backup Cycle

Although the RAID arrays used by our servers mean that it is highly unlikely that data will be lost by a disk corruption, we run a 4 hourly "on the fly" backup, with daily, weekly and monthly retention cycles. It is possible for us to reinstate a whole host service, or select an individual file for restore.
