Website Hosting and Maintenance Services
Hosting and Maintenance You Don’t Have to Think About
Safe, Secure and Reliable
When starting a new website or migrating an existing website, choosing your hosting is an essential part of the process and is often overlooked. In addition to the essentials, like picking a reliable provider, your hosting needs to be compatible with the technologies used for your digital service and be able to deliver information quickly, steadily, and securely to your end users. We oversee and monitor our hub of servers in conjunction with our managed hosting provider, as we believe that having a team of experts behind your hosting service is the best option. We offer tailored hosting solutions to meet your technical needs and strive to always keep you online.
Affordable Shared Hosting
With most generic hosting providers that offer shared hosting services typically these are bundled together with numerous other companies, unknown to you, which might have an impact on performance and security. Our managed hosting solution is completely secured and monitored to give your digital service the best performance and safest environment possible. To maintain your digital solution uptime in the event of data loss, both the managed hosting provider and MRS take incremental backups to ensure we’ve got you covered from multiple avenues.
Looking for something cutting edge – for websites that require the highest levels of performance and security, then dedicated hosting servers might be something of interested to you. This type of offering is commonly employed by companies conducting online business through e-commerce or web-based applications.
Don’t get confused by all the jargon, let us break it down for you
We use trusted partners for our hosting solutions. Find out more about our combined hosting features.
UK Based Server Stack
Our UK-based hosting partners and tailored server infrastructure, enables us to manage all clients’ websites and applications more efficiently. Being in the UK has many benefits including, enabling our team to visit the physical servers when needed, and being in the same time-zone means our partners are in sync and highly responsive for our development operations.
Cloudflare is a third-party software that sits “in the cloud” between the server (where your website is stored) and the user. This means that Cloudflare can optimise the traffic flow of your users in a variety of ways such as distributing traffic and caching content for faster retrieval, and provides more reliable up-time. This enables resources to be served from a more geographically appropriate location which in turn reduces the distance the information needs to travel to the end user. Additionally, this reduces the load on the origin server which in this instance would be MRS servers as the user doesn’t need to request as many resources as they may already be cached within Cloudflare’s network.
Other Benefits include:
- Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
- DDOS protection
- Content Distribution Network (CDN)
- Basic Next-gen image formats
