Hosting

We provide VPS, dedicated server and colocation hosting in our Manchester and Geneva data-centres, with flexible solutions to meet your specific requirements

Faelix is a small “boutique” hosting company. We’re not “the cloud” — we are not racing to the bottom on price. We want to have a relationship with each customer, to be able to offer a more personal service.

Faelix owns its servers and operates its own network — unlike a lot of small companies who are just reselling someone else.

Our network is multi-homed: we have several “big fat pipes” to connect us to the rest of the Internet.

Our servers are spread across multiple sites: we have equipment in more than one building, just in case. We operate diverse infrastructure in Manchester (UK) and Geneva (Switzerland).

While we are not “the cloud” we do use many of the same technologies: we offer hosting on our virtual private servers

But we’re also traditional enough that we can do colocation: you can choose to host your own hardware with us too, or we can provide a dedicated server specified to meet your requirements.
