A domain is the address at which a Web site appears, so for example www.gwsmedia.com is our domain. As well as having an address at which your website will appear, you also require ‘hosting' – that is space for your website to live, which must be at a secure location and on a reliable server.
GWS Media provides domain registration and fully serviced Web Hosting to clients. The advantages of hosting with us are:
- Knowledgeable, helpful phone support
- Rapid fixes to any issues
- You can have a Web site designed, developed and hosted all under one roof
Please note that UK domain registrations are subject to Nominet's terms and conditions.
We provide hosting on servers at Rackspace, and use providers who deliver problem-free high-uptime services, with the very high level of reliability needed for business Web site hosting.
GWS is a Rackspace hosting partner. Rackspace is one of the top hosting providers in the UK , well known for its reliability, and hosts Web sites for many companies in the FTSE-250.
We offer a full set of email services to clients including spam and virus filtering, mail archiving and content filtering.
For companies with up to 5 staff, separate mailboxes (which can be provided with your web hosting) are usually the most appropriate solution for email.
For larger companies, a more advanced and flexible solution like Microsoft Exchange should be considered.
