Some facts about about the Web.
The Internet is a complex grid linking billions of computers worldwide. Most people use their computers to browse web sites, but there are other computers that are specially created to send web site data - these are called servers. When you're browsing a web site, your computer sends out a request a specific server to in turn receive the relevant web site data - the server then sends back the web site data to your browser, and your web browser deduces them and displays them on your monitor.
Where we come in.
At HOST100, We specialise in running these servers. When you purchase a web hosting account from us - you essentially own a small portion of that server which in turn powers your site. We take all the hard work out of it for you by ensuring that the server software is kept secure and up-to-date, and we provide you with the tools you need to get your site online which are all accessible from our hosting control panel. What we do then is ensure that your site loads as fast as possible and that it's online - continually. We monitor our systems 24/7 to keep close tabs on how our servers and network are performing, and we have a great team, ready to respond to any potential problem that might occur, or to give you a hand keeping your site online.
A home for your website.
Even the building where the servers are kept has been designed to minimise the chance of web sites going offline. Varied power feeds, backed by emergency batteries and generators ensure the servers have an uninterrupted source of power regardless of any surges or failures in the mains supply. The air in the server rooms is chilled and purified to ensure that servers run cool and remain free from dust that could cause malfunction.
The servers are also connected to multiple Internet connections to ensure that there is always a route for the data to take should one of those network connections fail. Finally, the building has high levels of security and defenses against natural disasters to ensure the servers remain safe and secure.
All this for a few pounds a a month!
