When it comes to our Hosted Solutions, we assess your organisations individual needs to provide you with exactly what your business needs. Some hosting companies simply offer various fixed packages, which is fine if you want an ‘off the shelf’ solution, but here at Venom we think big and inform you of what we believe it is best to help your business achieve with its ambitious goals. It is with this vision that we can provide you with the absolute best Hosted Solution for you.

If your website receives a large amount of traffic, then you need a reliable and powerful server that can handle the volume. We can provide you with a dedicated server with all the CPU, RAM and disk space you require. You will get exclusive use of the resources of the server and we will build and maintain it for you, saving you the expense of purchasing your own.

We can customise a dedicated server package according to your preferences and requirements. We use Linux web servers, which are the most common web servers in the world because of their robustness and stability. However, should you require a different option, we also offer other types of servers including Windows.

Venoms servers are built to last. They are sturdy and can handle a lot of traffic, are reliable and secure. We go even further to secure yours and your client’s data. Your data and applications will be stored securely inside an ISO 27001 and 270017 accredited UK data centers protected by a 7-layer firewall and world class military grade 2048-bit encryption giving you the confidence only the person who it was intended for can access it.

COST EFFECTIVE SERVERS

Build a Venom Hosted Server that fits your business’s needs exactly

When a business or organization opt to host their own servers not only is this risking your and your client’s data but it’s also not cost effective. For example, where a business would buy a full server and only use about 20% of this you would still be charged the full 100%. Letting Venom’s technical engineers design you a tailored solution to your data hosting needs means that you only pay for the space within the server that you use.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

How long before I can use my new cloud-hosted server?

Usually, one working day. There are factors such as custom configurations, add-ons or additional applications that could take a bit longer.

What happens if my server runs out of resources? Can I upgrade?

Yes, absolutely. You can upgrade (or even downgrade) to another plan at any time.

How long do server upgrades take?

Because your server is a virtual machine that runs on a massive server network, it can be upgraded within minutes. Turnaround time is usually one working day or less, depending on workload and whether there are any additional requirements for your new server.

What happens if the server hardware fails? How will I know if there’s a problem?

Cloud servers are linked together in ‘clusters’ – a bit like a team of horses pulling a wagon. If one horse gets sick, it can be unhitched and the rest of the team are still strong enough to pull the wagon.

Similarly, if one physical server in a cluster fails, the other servers simply carry on providing the service. In fact, the clusters are designed in such a way that the servers can even switch themselves off during times of low demand, which helps us reduce our electricity consumption and carbon footprint.

A hosted server is a virtual machine, and the workload of creating all these virtual machines is spread over several physical server clusters. In the event of one of these physical servers failing, the other servers will simply pick up the slack and continue as normal. This is called ‘failover’. Our data centres are monitored 24-7-365, which means that even the tiniest problems are immediately spotted and addressed in order to provide continuity of service.

Lastly, we have 3 main data centres, a bit like having 3 teams of horses pulling the same wagon. This means your data is replicated across 3 separate geographic locations (London, Manchester Airport and Salford). So in the incredibly unlikely event of one or two entire data centres going down, the remaining ones will continue providing service.

From your perspective, there will be no difference whatsoever to the performance of your virtual server. Even though, behind the scenes, we will be hard at work repairing the broken physical server, cluster or data centre. That is the true magic of cloud computing.

Can I have root access to my server?

Yes and no. If required, you can have root access to your hosted server (i.e. your virtual machine) but not to the physical servers that it is hosted on (for the rather obvious security reason that they’re locked away in our secure data centre).

Whose responsibility is the server administration?

Our technicians here at Venom IT will create your hosted virtual server, install the operating system, assign an IP address and hand it over to you. From that moment onwards, the server is yours. You will have full admin rights to do additional software installations, configurations etc. and responsibility for its administrations shifts to you.

If I break something, will you help me fix it?

Yes, of course. We can either do a roll back (at no charge) or give per-hour tech support.

Does my hosted server need a firewall? Is it included?

Yes to both, and it’s free.

Should I get a dedicated server or a shared server?

It depends largely on the workload you need it to handle. Shared servers are cheaper, but for a reason.

Dedicated servers offer so much more:

  • Better performance
  • Better security
  • Can be customised
  • Full admin and control
What’s included in my hosted server package?

Apart from the virtual server itself, you also get:

  • Internet connectivity to the server
  • Firewall
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • 2 IP addresses, with additional IP addresses available upon request.
