Quality UK WebHosting By Invitation …
NEW for 2011:
Since 2004, 24/7 Hosting has offered web-hosting only to known clients or those recommended by trusted associates; principally, small businesses and low-bandwidth customers, with very few exceptions. We believe and strive in providing a strong personal service to our customers, to maximise their benefits and meet their expectations, then maintain those relationships long-term.
What are their priorities? Well, one of the most fundamental objectives of these types of client is RELIABILITY — it's as simple as that! Everyone likes affordability too — the problem with finding an ultra-reliable hosting package is that they're mostly very expensive. Why? 99.995% uptime (as close to the perfect optimum as one may sensibly expect without using mirrored servers) requires a web server of top-quality and one that is not shared with any other hosting companies or unknown end-users — we have our own dedicated servers exclusively for our customers, fully managed 24/7/365 by our staff and the datacentre technical support team. Additionally, we protect our customers' data by backing up their accounts to remote hardware, both nightly and additionally, a separate weekly schedule on a 4-week rotation, i.e. at least 4 sets of backups of your valuable data at any given moment and 5 in total.
How many providers do you know who take that much care? It's one thing to have security against downtime (by using fully-redundant hardware systems), but who can honestly say they have never deleted an important file and come to regret that no data backups were in place? It matters not that the server is still running when a key file is missing in your web account and YOU were responsible! We've got you covered ...
Furthermore, sensible use of bandwidth and load spreading, along with our policy of refusing to allow any known resource-hungry websites to be hosted, e.g. no Warez; no Bit Torrents; no Anime; no ROMs & Emulators; no IRC, no streaming; no commercial Bulk advertising (SPAM) etc. All of these exclusions help to maintain optimum reliability and uptime!
In respect of affordable WebHosting packages, we strongly believe that there's no such thing as unlimited resources like disk space, bandwidth, email accounts, databases etc., whereas we do believe that we offer generous and feasible solutions, ALWAYS well-within the capabilities of each web server, with huge overheads of bandwidth available should your traffic levels go ballistic! All packages are bespoke — what you need, when you need it, unless you're simply far too big to fit our particular business model — in our case, small(ish) but perfect is the most desirable combination! :)
** New for 2011 — With the acquisition of our newest replacement server 'Delta' we have gained a significant amount of extra space and processing power, such that it is just ticking over most of the time. At the time of writing, the average monthly traffic bandwidth is less than 70GB (out of 3000GB/month allocated) so it makes sense to find some new customers!
Therefore, until further notice we will be offering selected hosting packages to the general public, but only on our Delta server. You'll get highest-quality hosting and personal service when you invest in a year's contract and, for your peace-of-mind, a 30-day money back guarantee (excluding domain registration charges if you order a new one with the package).
This is NOT budget hosting and the package prices will deter the majority of free-lunchers/loaders — serious small business owners will however consider that the packages are good value for the performance and features that will be provided. What else do you get for this investment? Our commitment to dealing with your enquiries with urgency, by telephone and email, at any time you wish to call.
If you are needing us to buy you a new domain (and you order the correct type of package) we will be in touch straight away by telephone to discuss your options and choose the domain from what's available — please ensure your telephone number is correct on the purchase order form!
If you're needing a Web Hosting package that's larger or different to these selected packages we'll be happy to discuss a bespoke solution, or if you really are much larger than our ideal business model can sensibly support, we'll be pleased to quote you for your own dedicated server(s) or point you to a recommended alternative. In which case please email admin AT 247h DOT biz and include your telephone details with contact info.
