This is the type of hosting solution normally offered by hosting companies. It is inexpensive yet fulfills all the requirements of normal web sites, small online stores and online applications. It is very reliable and secure.

Essentially a community of users share the combined resources of a large computer network, such as CPU's, RAID Disk units, Network switches, Database servers, etc. Each customer has their own tightly controlled set of resources and users are able to share the benefits of an economy of scale, including bandwidth availablity and CPU time.

To all intents and purposes however, each customer operates within their own isolated virtual machine environment.

Individually configured hosting environments

The configuration of our configured servers varies, but is based around the following:

Server O/S Disk PHP CGI MySQL POP3 SMTP* FTP SSH CRON SSL Data-Pipe RAID Data Cost
Linux Apache 160Gb Standard feature Standard feature Standard feature Standard feature Standard feature Standard feature Standard feature Standard feature Standard feature 10Mbps! Standard feature Uncapped £ POA

In order to better meet the more demanding requirements of larger online stores, high security applications and customers who require specialy configured systems, for example Apache servers and DNS, tuned databases or changes to the Linux operating system itself, SystemCore offer a number of specially configured, dedicated machines.

Because we have total control over all aspects of such environments and since we keep the number of customers per machine very low, there is less need to compromise the level or type of service made available to one particuar user in the interests of a wider community of of users.

SystemCore are one of the very few hosting companies ofering this level of service. Currently we provide templated systems for the following types of specialised application:

  • High load, secure ecommerce environments
  • High security encrypted data environments
  • High load streaming media environments
  • High load collaborative community environments
  • High performance, real-time transactional environments
  • High burst, limited lifetime environments - for use for example in high volume e-promotional campaigns

SystemCOre configured servers* have a unique level of server control: Three Levels of control allow you to take take charge of every aspect of your server using your web browser, from anywhere in the world. From quick, easy updates, to full BIOS access, you have full server control at all times:

  1. Direct keyboard and mouse control: our Java based remote control interface provides video output streamed to directly to your browser.
  2. SSH gives you direct command line login from your PC, plus many PDAs and even some mobile phones. Through SSH tunneling, you can even set up virtual private networking and remote desktop server control.
  3. A Matrix control panel allows you to perform common tasks, from adding domains, email accounts and FTP users, to reviewing bandwidth usage, allocating disk space or installing your own SSL certificates.

*With your choice of operating system: RedHat Enterprise Server V3 or V4, or Fedora Core 5.

For the most demanding applications including large online stores, complex, high performance business systems and ultra-secure, virtual private networks some customers justify the use of their very own dedicated machine environment; in the limit, they may even call for their own physical network of servers, switches and back-bone routers.

This is the most expensive option, but also the most flexible and powerful and suitable for larger organisations

Many configurations are available ranging from single processor, single disk machines to fault tolerant, mullti processor, multi-machine grids with multiple cached, RAID disk units and multiple backbone routing. Prices start at around 700pa.

Second-sight, automated back-up, restore service

There is a true saying that states: 'data does not really exist unless it's in two different places'. With this in mind, and knowing that sometimes things can go wrong, SystemCore have developed Second Sight Backup. It's your extra safelty net if for any reason you lose your valuable online data, sales orders or web files.

Second Sight will securely back up your website or webstore data completely 'off server'. Importantly, your data is automatically backed up onto a separate physical webserver for double piece of mind. You chose what to back up and schedule your backup to run as often as you wish.

Which means that your business is protected; a full restore can be performed immediatley and you're back in business with minimal fuss and minimal downtime.

Rapid SSL Certificates for online Security

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the industry standard for online security. If you are doing any business on the internet then you will need an SSL Certificate, which shows your customers that you value the confidentiality of their data. The goal of an SSL Certificate is to keep the exchange of sensitive information encrypted and secure.

While most often assoiciated with online credit card purchasing, SSL security can be applied to your emai accounts, FTP and for your VPN (Virtual Private Network) or Extranet equipment.

You have two SSL options:

  1. Use our SystemCore webserver shared SSL space for your secure web areas or checkout pages, and display the reassuring padlock symbol to your site visitors. This is the best value route to selling securely on line immediately.
  2. You can purchase your own certificate, validated soley to your business and domain name. SystemCOre will install your certifacte direclty onto our webserver on your behalf.

SystemCore only buy SSL certificates from well known, long time security vendors GeoTrust* and our certifcates ahieve over 95% browser ubiquity. We only use single root SSL certificates and always use the highest commercial grade 256 bit RSA Encryption.

*GeoTrust is WebTrust compliant.

Secure Virtual Private Networks (VPN)

In addition to our stand alone dedicated server options, you can buy multiple servers and create your own private network of dedicated servers. Data can flow freely between each of your dedicated servers at 100 Mbps with no bandwidth charges. No machine outside your private network can communicate directly with your servers.

Control your own server network: SSH gives you direct command line login for Linux servers from your PC, plus many PDAs and even some mobile phones. Through SSH tunneling, you can even set up virtual private networking (VPN) and remote desktop server control.

True Virtual Machine Environments (VPS)- eg. Virtuozzo

For the ultimate in configurability we can supply systems that allow you to control multiple isolated virtual private servers operating on a single physical machine. Each virtual server is secure, customisable and each allows root-access against a fully partitioned file system. A VPS environment is ideal for serious developers, resellers or game serving.

With a VPS you benefit directly by:

  • Cost savings on hardware by sharing system resources
  • The ability to install your own software
  • Administer and reboot your own system online through root access and an online control panel
  • Full partitioning maintains your system's security and stability from any problemns with other systems on the same machine
