Dedicated Servers

We can create a dedicated server solution to meet your exact hardware and software requirements, giving you complete control over your hosting environment.

Do you need your own dedicated server hosting? We can provide servers located in our Manchester and Geneva data-centres. With a 99.95% network guarantee, 1 Gbit/s network port as standard and routers and border firewalls in fall-over pairs you get a fast stable environment for your server.

We provide 24/7 UK support direct to the engineers who do the work which means no first line support desk getting in the way of meeting your needs.

We’ll quickly create a dedicated server config tailored to your exact dedicated server hardware and software requirements. To set up the server we use SaltStack, deploying several hundred salt states to each server to configure:

  • Debian Linux on 64-bit CPUs
  • Nginx, Varnish and Apache for high-speed web serving
  • MySQL and automysqlbackup for databases
  • Postfix, Dovecot, AMaViS, ClamAV, Postfix.admin and other tools for handling email
  • Borg Backup for daily and weekly backups of your data
  • helpful scripts so that you can get on with building websites, sending emails, and getting the most out of your server

You can have complete control over your server, or we can part or fully manage for you. If you need managed backups, unlimited bandwidth, or anti-DDoS protection talk to us and we’ll create a flexible solution to meet your requirements.
