ControlX - Managed Hosting

Secure and reliable hosting for WordPress websites.

Our Managed Update Service means your site is always up to date and secure, while our support team is on hand.

To discuss hosting please get in touch.

WordPress Hosting

We actively manage our servers to ensure they are secure and each site has the space, bandwidth and resources it needs to run smoothly.

We can provide various levels of security certificates (SSL) as required.

Managed Updates

Keeping WordPress updated is essential, but with several core updates a year and plugins updating every month it can be hard to keep on top of the admin.

With our WordPress Update Service the core application and all plugins are updated as new versions become available with a roll-back service in case of any problems, meaning you never have to worry about updating WordPress again.

Please get in touch to sign up to our Managed Updates service. 

24/7 Monitoring

How do we know our servers are reliable? We run 24/7 uptime monitoring on all sites to ensure they are available.

The monitoring also flags any security or access issues with WordPress, by receiving prompt alerts our support team can respond quickly to any issues. 

Backups & Recovery

Even with reliable servers and managed WordPress updates there is sometimes a need to roll back to a previously saved version.

Our RAID disks means there’s a copy of your site to hand with an off-site copy in case of total disaster. We can supply local backups for additional peace of mind.

Domain Names

Sorting out problems with domain names can be frustrating, time consuming and expensive, so the  best approach is to set up the registration properly at the outset.

We can register new domains and help manage your existing names.

Aerial Photography

Seen from 400 feet up our perspective is shifted and the world looks very different, often revealing hidden features or relationships.

After an initial survey we will draw up a flight plan to ensure safety and compliance, we’ll then watch for a weather window to guarantee the best shots.

Video & Editing

Using the drone to capture stunning 4k video is a great way to add a wow factor to your project. We can even repeat the same shot over time to reveal the progress of a building project or the changing seasons.

Surveys & Inspections

With the ability to fly into difficult to reach areas drones are an excellent tool for surveys and inspections. Roofs, solar panels, agricultural, forestry, even fish farms, if we can can get within 500 meters we can film it or give you a first person view (FPV). 

3D Mapping

Drones can be used to capture 3D models of building and landscapes with remarkable accuracy with the resulting image map can be used by architects and planners, saving time and money compared to conventional CAD services.
