All websites require hosting, and the server will usually also be relied upon for email (unless you have an Exchange server or some other alternative arrangement). You will also need a Domain Name to use for the website and email addresses.
We host all websites that we build, and can also offer hosting facilities to clients wishing to build their own websites, or host an existing site built elsewhere.
In all cases we have access to the datacentres 24/7 in the event of a critical problem, and you have access to us 24/7 (subject to mobile phone coverage at times in both cases).
* No server is immune from performance and availability issues in the event of a DOS attack or other significant issue, but the number of sites and the routine requirements of our websites will never be the cause of an issue.
All hosting services subject to terms and conditions (including third party terms and conditions) which includes fair use policy. Quotas specified at quotation. Rolling monthly or annual contracts. Liability limited to refund of fees paid for time during which services are unavailable. Managed contracts include backups, but no liability in the event of backup failures.
In order for us to provide hosting facilities you will need a Domain Name. We are able to register a name for you, or you can transfer control of an existing domain to us (or point the name to our servers).
We are members of Nominet, the sole naming authority (central registry) for all .uk domain names (including ".co.uk"). We hold a Bulk Register (an ICANN accredited registrar) account for international domains including ".com"
It is important to understand that all domain names are issued strictly in accordance with the relevant authorities terms and rules. Nominet registration terms and conditions are here and their rules of registration are here. (these apply no matter who you use to register .uk names).
We are able to register names for you (if available) regardless of whether you actually want to use them immediately, and many clients register more than one name in order to best protect their brand names (for example regiseter .co.uk and .com, and/re register buth hyphenated and non-hyphenated versions of a name that is based on two or more words).
ALL work undertaken by pinkdylan (partnership) and/or pinkdylan ltd and/or pinkdylan technical and support ltd.is strictly subject to our terms and conditions.
