We actively manage our servers to ensure they are secure and each site has the space, bandwidth and resources it needs to run smoothly. 24/7 uptime monitoring to ensure sites are available.

Our RAID back ups means there’s a copy of your site to hand if required, plus an off-site copy in case of total disaster. We can supply local backups for additional peace of mind.

We can also help manage your domain names or register new ones.


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