Like any good party, all websites need a host – and all of our hosting is done with Amazon’s AWS service. It’s a market leading service that powers everything from Jambi’s site to Netflix. It is secure, cost-effective, stable, and scalable. It’s also world-class when it comes to security, something we take very seriously.

Generally speaking, AWS costs are calculated based on how many visitors the site receives and how powerful the server needs to be. One of the great things about AWS is that we can scale up or scale down the power of any server very easily. This means that if you’re a florist and expecting a spike in traffic around Valentine’s Day, we can neatly plan for this without having to pay for a server that is overpowered, and overpriced, for the vast majority of the year.

So if you are looking to host an existing site with us, or would like us to host a site that we have created together, we’re more than happy to discuss your requirements and send a quote your way. Just give us a shout.

We include all server maintenance within the price and we issue SSL certificates on all our sites free of charge. Some typical hosting set ups are listed below:
