The support we provide is full-scope and comprehensive. That means whatever issues or questions you might have – whether it’s about app issues or something like DNS changes - we’re here to help 24/7, 365 days a year.

Is there anything you can do at the point of setup to ensure my system and applications are fully secure?

As a standard part of our setup service, we conduct a full security hardening and optimization sweep of your system and applications. It doesn’t cost you a thing and ensures you’re free from potentially harmful issues and everything is locked down.

Are your support teams really available 24/7 x 365? My previous hosting company promised this, and I found it hard to get support at certain times.

We’re here any time of the day or night, every day of the year – that’s a promise. We know you can’t predict when you’ll need help, so we’re here whenever you need us. And we aim to answer all incoming support requests within 5 minutes, so you won’t ever have to wait around for the help you want.
