Established in 2006 as an independent, UK based hosting provider, Farbyte's services have grown a reputation for being:
We constantly focus on giving our customers industry leading support, value, stability, uptime, performance and productivity.
Our clients rely on our experienced and certified professionals to provide outstanding service and support which we deliver, day in, day out.
We are considered by many to be one of the most reliable and secure hosting service providers in the UK.
Unlike many UK hosting providers we run and own our servers and network infrastructure, with dedicated staff ensuring things run smoothly 24 hours a day.
In addition, our servers are actually located in the UK!
This means that we do not resell other providers hosting services or servers, which an increasing number of UK hosting providers do.
We constantly monitor our environment 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 monitoring both incoming and outgoing network traffic. In addition to this, we also scan all web hosting email accounts for viruses and malware.
Farbyte is a member of the RIPE Network Coordination Centre, the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) for Europe, the Middle East and parts of Central Asia.
As such, you can rest assured that Farbyte is an established and reputable hosting company administering our own internet network address space and not some 'flash in the pan' hosting provider.
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.

We use Paypal as our secure payment processing partner and as such, we do not collect or store any financial information when purchasing your Farbyte service.
Don't have a Paypal account? No problem! You can create one during checkout, or pay using Paypal's debit / credit card processing service without using a Paypal account.
We also accept UK bank transfers via Standing Order, BACS and Faster Payment Service (FPS). Please note that there is a £3.99 administration charge when using bank transfers for payment and your Farbyte service will not be deployed until payment is received. FPS transfers usually clear within 2 hours of payment being made.
