Fully Managed Hosting

Red's point of difference from many other providers is the level of system administration and support that we provide as standard. We constantly monitor your system performance and our security team remains abreast of the latest issues that may threaten your server.

Using Red's high availability hosting architecture, our managed hosting solutions keep our customers ahead of the curve, reduce their capital expenditure and allow their internal teams to focus on business initiatives instead of worrying about the systems that support them.

Ecommerce Hosting

Hosting ecommerce websites is a specialist task in which a strong and personal relationship is required between the merchant and the ecommerce hosting provider's engineering team. We provide a support which is second to none allowing you to focus on your business.

Hosting for Ecommerce Sites & Ecommerce Platforms
Red has a lot more knowledge of ecommerce platforms than your average hosting company. Not only do Red author and host our own ecommerce platform, we also have considerable experience hosting ecommerce platforms from multiple vendors. Red’s ecommerce hosting services cover a number of ecommerce platforms including Red’s tradeit ecommerce platform hosting, MS Commerce Server hosting, ePages hosting, Magento hosting and others.

PCI DSS Ecommerce Hosting
Any company processing, storing, or transmitting payment card data must be PCI DSS compliant or risk losing their ability to process credit card payments and being audited and/or fined. Red can provide a comprehensive PCI hosting solution inclusive of an intrusion prevention system, independent third party vulnerability scanning and assistance with code and database fixes where required.

Ecommerce Hosting Redundancy and Scalability
Red's data centre infrastructure is carefully planned with data centres in both London and Oxford allowing for split system configuration e.g. a disaster recovery system that can be doubled as a staging / user acceptance testing system in one data centre and live system in the other. Red can quickly add additional web servers and configure its hardware load balancing devices to spread load, or add database servers with storage arrays. This flexibility helps to ensure a consistent high level of performance during peaks and as your business grows.

Dedicated Server Hosting

Recognising that dedicated hosting requirements vary from client to client, we offer a comprehensive range of dedicated servers tailored to suit your specific needs. Our aim is to provide a high quality, flexible dedicated server hosting service at a fair price. What our competitors consider as extras, come as standard with a Red Technology dedicated server hosting solution.

Our dedicated server web hosting services are measured against Service Level Agreements covering infrastructure installation, availability and time to restore in case of failure.

Regardless of the dedicated server solution required, we provide guidance, support and a professional but friendly manner.

Why use a Dedicated Server?
