Professional, managed, premium hosting on Virtual Private Servers
aarrghh - the site's gone down and I can't contact anyone"
You're waiting for the client to call - any second now. The despair, the frustration. Why won't the hosting company respond to your email? You marked it as URGENT after all?
"everything was fine and then suddenly, it was running really slow"
You want your site to run fast - everyone loves fast right? But sometimes it just runs like a dog. You can't predict it (but it generally happens at the worst possible time). Just what's going on here?
"we ran some TV adverts and suddenly the hosting company told us we were in violation of the terms of service"
You bought hosting, you just want your site to work. You're not a server expert and don't really care about the bits and bytes of it. Running slowly? Help me fix it. Server's overloaded? Give me a bigger server.
Wordpress has made getting up and running a whole lot simpler. But servers? Who wants to deal with all that? Shared hosting is unpredictable, and doesn't look great to your clients. And running your own servers? It's not what you got into business for.
"It's nice to work with people who actually understand, and care, about the issues we're going through"
Imagine if your hosting company knew about Wordpress, responded to issues and anticipated problems before they occur.
You'd get to concentrate on building fantastic web-sites and not having to worry about the technicalities. You wouldn't need to stress about resource usage. Or try and decipher blog posts about configuration files.
Look, servers aren't infallible. They will go wrong sometimes.
Which means we're always on call. In the absolute worst case scenario, we'll get back to you within 8 hours - normally much faster. That's a guarantee.
We work hard to lessen the hardware issues. For example, we don't use hard drives, we use SSDs (solid-state disks) - not only are these faster, but, as they have no moving parts, they're more reliable.
And to ensure you get what you need, we don't share your hosting with other customers. Each site has its own resources; no-one else can put a lid on you.
Finally, this is what we do. We've been working in the web-hosting industry for years. We've built huge sites for our clients, we've stayed up all night repairing servers, we've dealt with the unexpected.
I'm Rahoul Baruah (also known as Baz) and over the last twenty years I've been building software and managing servers for a variety of companies; from small startups to UK local authorities.
In that time, I've learnt:
If something can go wrong it will
The smallest project will need ongoing maintenance
Value is more important than price
You should choose your partners carefully
Technologies come and go but the underlying principles remain
Sticking plaster will only get you so far
But most importantly:
You don't care about the technology;
It should just get out of the way so you can deliver amazing sites to your clients
That's what 3hv can give you.
A rock-solid hosting platform, with great round-the-clock expertise, freeing you to concentrate on what you're good at.
