Managed web hosting packages

Let us take care of your web hosting

Web hosting can be confusing especially when you've got a business to run. With our managed web hosting packages we take care of your web, email and online databases. Contact us for more details.

Web hosting is a collective term used to describe a range of services that are provided over the internet. They can be split in to 3 main areas, the hosting of web files, email hosting and databases. Not every project requires all three services which is why we use a flexible approach to web hosting.

Our managed web hosting packages allow you to focus on what you're best at, running your business. We don't run a ticket support system at Arnie. If you have a question, require a new email account or just want some advice you can talk to a real person. It's simple, quick and personal to you.

A brief guide to web hosting

All projects that are accessed by the internet need to be hosted on a web server. Your domain name is pointed to this server and a combination of this address and the folder system makes up a URL. When your clients enter a URL they access the files hosted on your web server, which then get downloaded to their browser. Your web design gets rendered and hey presto a website appears on the users screen. This is the basic client / server model and takes only seconds to miraculously travel anywhere in the world. Most of the internets web traffic works in way similar to this.

What is email hosting

Email works in a very similar way to web hosting with emails sent to you being stored on an email server. They find their way to your server because your domain name forms the later part of the email address. The part before the @ symbol in the email address is used to send emails to different accounts.

You access your email first by authenticating after which the files are downloaded and the email design is rendered by your email client. You can also access emails by logging in to a webmail system through your web browser.

How databases are used

Databases are used in web development to store information. The data is accessed by files on your web server with the database output being inserted in to the web page prior to be sent to the web browser. Databases can contain data like that of an online store or collect new data for example, information sent in a contact form. Databases form the core of a content managed system like a WordPress website.
