Extras

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.

DNS hosting

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 space

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.

Watchdog

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.

How to set up the watchdog >>

Anti-spam service

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.

IPv6 connectivity

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.

Domain registrations

You can register and renew your domain portfolio from our control panel.

“We recently suffered a hosting crisis and turned to Bytemark for help. The staff were cool, calm and collected throughout. They offered a very high level of customer service. and enabled us to switch over 85 domains and 100s of email addresses in a very short space of time.”
