Our custom web hosting platform

Here at Swish ICT, we took careful consideration with our web hosting platform. When we first started we were hosting our websites using resold servers, ones that we didn’t have full control over, and over time it became apparent that these servers weren’t quite performing as we would have liked, in addition to this, software updates weren’t getting applied as timely as we would have liked. 

 

In light of this, we have dedicated time to creating our own web hosting platform, one that’s quick and responsive, and that we can control the update’s being applied, along with the configuration and protection of these servers. 

 

Our new hosting platform provides 

  • Data Center Specification –
    • Teir 1 connectivity (Our servers are hosted in the LD5 Data Center with high capacity internet peering), which has redundancy built into its core. 
    • ISO 27001 Accredited.
    • ISO 50001 Accredited.
    • ISO 9001 Accredited.
    • OHSAD 18001 Accredited.
    • SSAE 16/ISAE 3402 Accredited.
    • PCI DSS Accredited.
  • Server Specification –
    • Custom Built Servers.
    • Automated SSL Certificate Renewals.
    • Daily Full server backups (Daily backups are kept for 7 days, Weekly Backups for 4 weeks, and Monthly Backups for 6 months). These are stored in an independent system to the web hosting platform, and are encrypted using AES-256. 
    • Constant monitoring of the server, so that if a problem occurs, our team will be motified within minutes and will be able to get the server back online quick.
  • Security –
    • All servers are fronted by an independant firewall.
    • Our servers are configured to only accept TLS v 1.2 and TLS v 1.3 SSL Connections (The latest standards)
  • WordPress Installations –
    • WordPress plug-in updates are applied nightly. 
    • WordPress theme updates are applied nightly. 
    • Full database and website backups happen nightly.

 

All of these help to ensure that your website is fully protected, and as secure as reasonably possible.
