SSD Drives = High Performance Hosting and ReliabilityAt UK Cheap Hosts, unlike other UK hosting providers, we use SSD drives in order that your web site hosting is fast and stable. Many UK web hosts will use non SSD hard disks with a read and write speed of between 80 - 120mb a second. SSD drives will read and write at between 450 - 650MB a second which is almost 5 times faster! SSD drives are ideal for hosting accounts which require a lot of read and writing to and from database becasue unlike standard drives, SSD drives have no moving parts so are less susceptible to damage, wear and tear. We also implement RAID 10 technology which is the most stable method of organising hard drives as it provides ability to hot swap drives and allow our web hosting customers site's to remain online during essential maintenance.
Security = Protection For your Data and ReputationSecurity is very important for us and we use managed firewalls and various scanning tools to protect your sensitive data. All UK web hosting packages are protected with the high level protection from Atomicorp Firewall (ASL Firewall) which is an industrial level firewall offering protection from Zero Day attacks, Web Attacks, Denial of Service, WebShells, Malware, Brute Force Attacks and more! We also scan our UK web servers daily using specialist scanning tools in order to detect any malicious code or files hiding in your web site which could cause damage to your visitors and your reputation. Most web hosts will offer little or no protection at all whereas we spend a great amount of resources analysing and protecting our web servers from malicious attacks 24/7.
Backups = Business ContinuityUk Cheap Hosts includes in all it's UK web hosting packages, full, weekly cpanel backups which are sent to a secure off site location.
