Each time a page on your site is accessed data is transferred. All responsible hosting companies set limits on data transfer to stop access to the files on their servers slowing down. Data transfer can be monitored through your control panel, should you exceed your limit, you may be asked to pay a small surcharge or upgrade your account. As an average page may be less than 50KB, including graphics, even our Starter Account with 500MB data transfer allows for thousands of accesses per month.

The Servers

We use industrial strength web server equipment for performance and reliability including Intel Pentium and Sun Sparc based systems. All servers have dual processors, dual 100Mbit Ethernet adapters, a minimum of 1 gigabyte of memory and a server grade mainboard and chipset. Storage is spread across multiple Ultra 160 SCSI hard disk drives using Adaptec RAID controllers.

The equipment is located in a UK shared data centre with round the clock monitoring. The servers have direct access to the highest capacity broadband IP network in the UK. Bandwidth to the server racks is presented on two gigabit fibres from independent routers creating a network with no single point of failure.

Each server has two identical hard disk drives, should the primary drive fail, the secondary unit can take over the work load with no loss of availability. To prevent accidental data loss all data is backed up each night, backup tapes are stored off the premises.

Each server has battery and propane generator backup systems to make sure that your site stays available even in the event of a power failure.

Backbone performance is constantly monitored, sending IP traffic down the shortest path using the Cisco BGP4 protocol.
