Get Ahead Of The Competition With A New Managed Cloud Server
Posted by Steve Salter on 17 January 2017 09:23 AM

Cloud is still the buzz word throughout the IT world but very few businesses are taking full advantage of everything the Cloud can offer. Thousands of businesses across the globe are leveraging the cloud to become agile, digital businesses, the downside is only a small number get everything they need, or in other words, are maximising the true potential of their cloud solution.

We’re about to change all that with two amazing managed Cloud solutions.

One of the biggest drawbacks with Cloud is the management of the service. Many businesses just don’t have the time or the resources to provide their own management. With some businesses having to outsource their Cloud management at great expense and quite often without the level of service guaranteed at the time.

We’re pleased to say that we’re now in a position to offer the first truly cost effective managed cloud service for both Linux and Windows Cloud servers hosted by Netcetera.

Each package comes loaded with great features.

  • Plesk 12.5 Included
  • SSL Included
  • Lightning Fast Page Load Speed
  • 24/7/365 Award Winning Support
  • DDoS protected
  • 99.9% Network Guarantee
  • Website Monitoring
  • Server Anti-Virus Software
  • Optional offsite backup

Reliable servers matched with awesome support, guaranteed uptime, server monitoring as standard and all backed up by Netcetera’s 20 years commitment to provide the best customer support available.

Value for money server management without compromise on support and service is now available at a price that all businesses, big and small can afford. With prices starting from only £60.00 p/m there’s no reason why you should put up with downtime and slow websites anymore.

It’s easy to switch to a managed Cloud Solution from Netcetera, not only can we help with site migration through our new Concierge Service but we could also save you a considerable amount of money on your current cloud hosting. For a limited period we are even offering FREE migration to make the switch so much easier.

Netcetera Ranked The Number One Hosting Provider In The World
Posted by Steve Salter on 09 January 2017 01:33 PM

Netcetera is proud to announce that we are ranked Number One in Netcraft’s global list for the most reliable web hosting companies for the month of December 2016.

This is what Netcraft’s independent monitors had to say:

“Netcetera rounded off the year by having the most reliable hosting company site in December 2016, successfully responding to all but one of Netcraft’s requests. In 2016, Netcetera made eight appearances in the top ten, reaching second place in February, March and June. Earlier in 2016, Netcetera celebrated 20 years of successful business, thanking its clients, including some that have been with the company since the day it opened.”

“Netcetera is based on the Isle of Man, a self-governing territory of the United Kingdom known for its low-tax economy. Netcetera’s data centre, The Dataport, uses several energy-saving technologies including Free Air Cooling and virtualisation, which when coupled with carbon offsetting, make it a zero carbon data centre. This carbon-neutral approach is estimated to have saved more than two million kilograms of CO2 to date.”

We have been very proactive right throughout 2016, starting with the launch of our new state of the art Business Recovery Centre and we have continued to innovate with the introduction of several new products and huge price reductions across many of our hosting solutions.


Despite 2016 being an extremely busy year for all our team, we still haven’t lost focus on providing some of the fastest most reliable secure hosting available anywhere on the planet.

Netcraft’s endorsement also goes to show that our commitment to the environment and our use of green energy does not adversely effect the excellent performance and reliability of the hosting we provide. For many businesses looking to negate their carbon emmissions and play their part in reducing global warming, hosting with Netcetera is an excellent way to achieve some of these goals.

Netcraft independently monitors and measures the response times of fifty leading hosting providers’ sites. These performance measurements are made at fifteen minute intervals from separate points around the Internet, and averages are calculated over the immediately preceding month.

Switching to better hosting has never been easier with our awesome 24/7 technical support and our new concierge service there’s never been a better time to find out what better hosting can do for your business.

Isn’t it time you switched to a more reliable web hosting company?

With Cyber Essentials you can focus on your core business objectives, knowing that you’re protected from the vast majority of common cyber attacks. You will also be able to drive business efficiency, save money and improve productivity by streamlining processes. Achieving certification will also help you to address other compliance requirements such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation.

Demonstrate Security

Demonstrate to clients, insurers, investors and other interested parties that you have taken the precautions necessary to reduce cyber risks.


Increase Opportunities

Be able to bid for UK Government contracts that involve the handling of personal and sensitive information, and increase your chances of securing business within the private sector.

Insurance agencies look favourably on organisations with Cyber Essentials, resulting in lower insurance premiums.


Why choose IT Governance for Cyber Essentials certification?

IT Governance is the leading CREST-accredited certification body, and has awarded hundreds of certifications, with many more companies achieving certification every day. Cyber Essentials clients include companies such as Vodafone, Airbus Defence and Space Ltd, Action for Children, and ELEXON.

This package includes a Cyber Essentials documentation toolkit and two hours of Live Online consultancy with an experienced technical expert.  Achieve a globally recognised security accreditation without the need to spend vast sums of money on so-called external experts.

This package includes a Cyber Essentials documentation toolkit and one day of on-site consultancy conducted at your offices with an experienced technical expert. If you take your business security seriously but need a bit more help to achieve your goals, this is the package for you. From only £1445.00 plus VAT

Cyber Essentials

The Cyber Essentials scheme is a key deliverable of the UK’s National Cyber Security. Cyber Essentials specifies the basic controls that all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common Internet-based threats. The scheme provides a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that they have taken essential precautions to secure themselves against the majority of cyber risks.
