Farbyte is a well established UK hosting provider, founded in 2006. We are considered by many to be one of the most reliable and secure web hosting services in the UK.
Unlike many UK web hosting providers, Farbyte has dedicated staff ensuring our infrastructure runs smoothly 24 hours a day. We run our own servers and do not resell other providers hosting packages, which an increasing number of UK web hosting providers do.
We automatically monitor our environment constantly for performance and service issues, so if anything should go wrong, we are the first to know and, in turn, react immediately.
At Farbyte, your web site and local computer security is treated with the highest regard. To help ensure that you are not affected by crackers/hackers, worms, viruses and other unwanted activities, we have automated intrusion prevention and detection (IPD) systems and network firewalls running throughout the infrastructure.
In addition we monitor traffic, both incoming and outgoing, for virus, worms and other malware. This includes any email sent to or from any of our customers web hosting accounts.
Finally, every shared web hosting customer is protected by a web firewall system. This is not a network firewall, but a sophisticated system that monitors the requests made to your website for things like SQL injection, invalid requests, etc. and blocks offenders before they can do harm.
As you can see, Farbyte sets the standard when it comes to your website and computer security.
With modern powerful servers, Farbyte ensures that your website responds the way you want it to... FAST!
The use of RAID disk subsystems also ensures that disk IO speeds are kept at the high rate your web site needs and in many cases, we employ SSD drives to really push performance through the roof.
Farbyte ensures that server resources are never oversold and constantly monitors their performance in order to make sure things don't slow down.
We benefit from multiple network peering in the UK with major IP providers, ensuring excellent internet transit speeds.
RAID disk subsystems are employed on all our servers ensuring system uptime in the event of disk drive failure.
Each server also benefits from redundant power supplies and all devices are protected from mains power outage via UPS devices and redundant power generators.
Our network enjoys the security of multiple peering with numerous other providers ensuring that in the event of a network becoming unavailable, other routes are automatically employed.
