Included in hosting plans:

  • Operating System – Maintenance of the operating system which covers Upgrades and Security patches in order to ensure the operating system is running the latest secure version and any known security issues are patched.
  • Control Panel – Maintenance of the hosting control panel to ensure it is the latest secure version.
  • Software – Ensuring the scripting software, such as PHP, Perl and Apache on Linux servers and .ASP and .NET on Windows servers, are at the latest secure version.
  • Security – Ongoing scanning and audits of the server to prevent attacks at a server level.
  • Monitoring – Monitoring of the services which run on a server to ensure they are functioning at all times and to proactively resolve any issues as and when they arise. This is for the services at a server and not at a site level.
  • We provide and have maintained the platform (Operating System and Control Panel) on which you run your site and/or business. Our responsibility is to see your server is running at optimum performance and secured to the highest level we deem appropriate.

  • Even if we provide some free help, e.g. setting up WordPress, this is at our discretion and does not bind us to provide further free help forever.
