Infrastructure & Hosting

Infrastructure & Hosting

Yes we do. We offer a simple-to-use, user-friendly, modern and fast webmail application should you need to access your email on the go.

Our servers and data disks are routinely backed up on a daily rotating basis. As a fail-safe measure all application data, including configuration files and databases are incrementally backed up to our rsync.net cloud storage account. We regularly test physical recovery of all backup data for your peace of mind.

We store your data on fast access SSD drives attached to our Katapult high performance cloud servers.

Your applications run in a secure container on one of our Katapult high performance SSD Linux cloud servers. These servers run the latest versions of Ubuntu and are regularly updated and continually monitored for availability, security and performance.

No, we offer a very high level of management and maintenance to every customer. This is built into our server setup and monitoring. This is not standard hosting.

We protect your data with TLS (SSL) certificates. We use Let’s Encrypt, a free, automated, and open Certificate Authority providing TLS certificates to 225 million websites. Unlike many other hosting companies we do not make an additional charge for this service.

We monitor every website and/or web application to check that each is running 24/7 and serving up pages correctly. Our monitoring toolkit includes the Uptime Kuma web service, a best-in-class monitoring service. We respond proactively to any problems identified, typically in advance of a client being aware of any issue.

Domain names

Domain names

A domain name is registered for a fixed period from 1 to 10 years. Domain names have to be renewed at regular intervals. Services such as email and web hosting are associated with domain names, and their continued functioning depends on the timely renewal of the domain name.

Here are some of the stages that make up the life cycle of a domain name:

Registration Period: 1 to 10 years.The domain must be renewed before its expiration date in order to keep all related services (e-mail, hosting, etc.) active.

Grace Period: once the expiration date is reached, the holder can still renew his domain at the same price for 45 days. Services (e-mail, hosting, etc.) are no longer available.

Redemption Period: the holder has another 30 days to keep his domain name. This is no longer a renewal but a restoration, which is a more expensive process. Services (e-mail, hosting, etc.) are still unavailable.

If the holder does not renew the domain, it will be permanently deleted. No further action can be taken for 5 days, the domain is then released and be registered by anyone.

Before registering a domain name, you have to check for its availability to make sure the domain name that you want can be registered.

Your Registrar is the entity that manages your domain names on a daily basis with the Registries. You can transfer your domain names from one Registrar to another at any time.

In most cases, when a transfer fee is applied, the transferred domain name is renewed for an additional year.

Transfers have to be requested by the domain holder or a representative of the holder. Otherwise, the transfer process cannot be initiated.
