    Hosting and Server maintenance

    We take care of the hosting and maintenance of your server and systems. To host the systems, shops and sites, we work closely with well-known providers. They are able to choose from a variety of solutions that we put together and recommend in line with your requirements. 

    • Web hosting packages on DRIVE servers at a well-known business hosting partner at their secure data processing center
    • Web hosting package with your external provider
    • Individual hosting solution on your own server system, with a well-known business hosting partner at their secure data processing center with:
    • Minimal set-up, security and performance gain by reducing the server’s services to the requisite web, database and mail clusters, proxy and memcached servers, management of firewalls
    • Backup systems, to reduce the risk of data loss
    • 24/7 monitoring service: We are happy to attend to your application outside of normal business hours, as an add-on to the out-and-out system service from the hosting provider
