Website uptime is crucial in our business – we have clients earning thousands of €/$/£ every day, and even a short period of server downtime is going to cost them money. That’s why downtime for our websites, including maintenance and admin requirements, is typically a matter of a few hours per year, no more.
We run our servers on the LAMP configuration (Linux/Aache/MySQL/PHP), noted for its stability. Our High Availability configuration means that all sites are mirrored on a second server that is ready to take up the load should the primary server fail at any time.
We also run daily and monthly backups as well, so that the latest version of your site is always to hand should we need it for any reason.
