Domains, Hosting & email

Once your new website is ready, you can leave hosting to us knowing that it is secure, backed up and fast. With an unsurpassed track record of 99.9% + uptime over the past 4 years you can have complete confidence that your domain services are as good as it’s possible to be. We can host both your website and email whether it be a single mailbox for a small business or multiple mailboxes for larger corporate entities.

What is hosting?

For the non technical, hosting your domain services (principally website and email) can be daunting, jargon-ridden subject so here is a quick and easy summary.

Websites and email have to be run on specially configured servers (another name for computers) which have the following characteristics:

  • High quality web / email server software installed, maintained and updated
  • High levels of physical security & ‘mirrored’ facilities
  • Frequent and automated back-up facilities
  • Support for key web technologies & databases

It would be perfectly possible to host your domain services (i.e. the website and email that use your domain) from your home or office. However, without the above facilities you would be highly vulnerable to data loss, malware and hacking as these threats are with us 24/7. Consequently your domain services should be hosted in purpose built facilities offering all of the above with highly trained staff to keep things running smoothly.

Hosting with Kikk

Kikk has enjoyed a flawless 4 year reseller partnership with Clook (part of sub6) who are amongst the very best UK based data-centres. Our clients’ websites & email have experience no downtime at all during this period except for some very short ‘middle of the night’ planned maintenance slowdowns.

In partnership with Clook we offer a full range of services from the smallest of websites on shared servers to mission critical dedicated servers - traditional and cloud based. Our pricing structures are very competitive and whilst you may find cheaper offers (as indeed we could) domain hosting is not something to take any chances with.

eMail

Small businesses and start-ups normally have a single, modestly sized mailbox bundled with their website hosting space. This enables them to use a professional business email (your.name at yourdomain.co.uk) as opposed to a generic public email service such as gmail, yahoo or bt.connect for a very low price. We recommend this for most businesses as it presents a better impression of your business and puts your name ‘out there’.

If you have more substantial email requirements, either in the number of mailboxes (addresses) or due to heavy volume of email use, we switch to our corporate email service which runs alongside but separately to your webserver space. Corporate email packages start at £79.95 per annum with practically unlimited mailboxes. There is a nominal set up fee of £2.50 for each mailbox (negotiable for larger numbers).

Domain Registration

We are happy to manage all registration and renewals for any domains you have. We do this work at cost + a handling fee of just £2.50 per renewal. Because all of the client domains we manage are in one place we can keep a close eye on their status and ensure renewals are managed promptly. You may alternatively register your domains with a registrar of your choosing, although we will need access to your registrar control panel to undertake DNS work.
