Our Hosting Services

Shared Hosting

Shared hosting is economical and is ideal for a small to a medium website with no custom integrations.


Dedicated hosting provides you with an exclusive web server, and is best suited to a small or medium site with custom integrations and high traffic volumes.


Ideal for small, medium and large scalable websites that require a custom plan. You can control and customize your hardware and software configurations and run your own applications.


Scalable applications are ideal for large to enterprise websites that see high traffic volumes at certain times of the day or during certain periods of the year. With scalable hosting, you are charged according to how much bandwidth you use each month.
