The highly redundant web hosting infrastructure means that your website is accessible at all times when you and your customers need it.

Secure Websites

As all websites hosted on our web servers are managed by Contrado Digital we can ensure websites have the right security measures in place to avoid someone elses website on a shared server impacting your website. As a minimum we strategically segment websites based on needs and install security technology on every website which includes;

  • User account security: Meaning that users are forced to use secure passwords to avoid someone easily guessing the account details.
  • User login security: Meaning that brute force attacks, when an automated systems tries to hack into your account by guessing username and password combinations over and over again until they are successful, are automatically blocked early on as they are detected. Keeping your account safe at all times.
  • User registration security: Meaning that guest user registrations on your website need to be approved and managed to avoid anyone registering an account on your website.
  • Database security: Meaning that common database table names are placed with complex table names for added security.
  • File system security: Meaning that it is not possible for people to view files directly on the web server, particularly for files which can indicate certain technologies running and for files which no-one should be accessing directly.
  • Blacklist functionality: Meaning that any IP Address which is acting suspiciously will be automatically blacklisted to prevent issues.
  • Firewall security: In addition to the firewall in place at the physical infrastructure level, and the firewall in place at the server software level, we also ensure a firewall is in place at the individual website level for added security and to block access to unwanted visitors.
  • Brute force attack prevention: Meaning that systems are in place to automatically detect when a botnet is trying to break into your website which is then automatically blocked.
  • Security scanner: Meaning that systems are in place to automatically detect when files are changed on the server which appear suspicious.
  • Comment spam security: Meaning that spam comments are blocked automatically to avoid cleaning these up manually in the future.

We take website security seriously which is why we insist that all websites hosted with us meet our high standards as a minimum. Website security should not be taken lightly which is why we work closely with our web hosting customers and partners to ensure our hosting technology is as secure as possible.

Server Monitoring

Our web servers are monitored 27/7/365 so we are always aware of the status of the servers. In addition to this we use enterprise level server monitoring software to provide extremely detailed insights into server performance down to which processes are running, which user accounts are using the most memory and how much of the server resources are in use at any one time;

 

Server Resources Monitoring Technology

This technology allows us to monitor performance in real-time and adjust server resources dynamically as required. Utilising UKFast’s superior cloud technology, we’re able to scale up / down server resources to suit requirements at any given point. Meaning that if we are expecting a sudden surge of website traffic, we can increase the number of CPUs and RAM resources in anticipation and reduce them again afterwards.  As a rule of thumb, we aim to keep server resources below 75% to allow for natural fluctuations without impacting performance.
