A server alone isn't quite enough to host a site robustly - Bytemark provides you with all the extra services you'll need, and many of them are free of charge.
Your sites need a reliable DNS service to make sure your domain name keeps working. So if you're a hosting customer, you can host as many domains as you like on our three nameservers using a simple, scripted interface, and know that your DNS is triply redundant.
Backup is an essential part of your server's setup, to make sure you can recover from failures. We provide an amount of remotely accessible space with each of our hosting products, so you can stash your data for a rainy day.
You need to know before your users and customers when something stops working. Our watchdog lets you specify what should work, and can text or email you within 5 minutes of something going wrong.
Setting up and maintaing anti-spam and anti-virus software for your mail is hard. It gobbles resources, and needs plenty of attention to keep up to date. Use our managed anti-spam service instead from only £0.50 per domain per month.
Your site can be ready for the next-generation internet - IPv6 connectivity is available on all our servers if you're keen to get set sooner rather than later.
You can register and renew your domain portfolio from our control panel.
