About Us

History

Originally established in 1998 as a support service to Lycos Europe, M8 INTERNET commenced trading on Monday 06 January 2003

The company changed its name to Manage My Hosting in May 2012
The company provides basic, cheap, and reliable website hosting
Using only the highest quality servers based in the United Kingdom

 

Current Facilities

The data centre offers a secure, resilient environment for our web hosting platform
Based in a secure facility the data centre is built to an N+1 specification, so that if any particular service fails - e.g. electricity or air conditioning - another backup service automatically takes over the failed service's job

Power

Dual power feeds enter the building at different points and Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) ensure that all power to the server area is clean and spike free
In the event of a power outage the UPS can take the entire data centre load for up to fifteen minutes
However within 20 seconds redundant generators are able to indefinitely take on the entire data centre load

Security

The data centre is manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so that if anything goes wrong engineers can respond quickly and effectively to the problem
Access to the data centre is via a master access list using Smart Card authentication
Access to the data centre is by authorisation only
CCTV operates throughout the facility

Cooling & Fire Suppression

The temperature of the data centre is kept at a steady 21oC to allow optimum equipment performance
Our fire detection system monitors the room for any sign of fire and allows operators to respond to such a situation using a variety of fire suppression techniques

 

Technology

Supermicro Servers

We use Supermicro servers in our website hosting platform
Utilising state-of-the-art technology we have built a web hosting platform that is second to none
Our platform is designed in such a way that if any server fails another server automatically and without delay takes over that server's workload
For example, if one of our mail servers breaks down another server automatically comes online, with all the correct configuration, and takes over the work of the failed server
During this period no email is lost
As well as this, all data is stored in two large network disk arrays
Data is automatically synchronised between the arrays so that in the event of an array failing the remaining array continues to serve data to the servers with no downtime


Server Specification

Our current server specification is :
Intel® Dual E5-2660 2.20Ghz Processor Dual core

8 GB RAM

Uptime

We aim for 99.90% uptime, however we do need to take the servers offline for maintenance, replacement, or upgrade occasionally
This is always scheduled for overnight, in the UK, and with as little disruption as possible

We currently provide two uptime performance indicators
