In today's digital age, web hosting security is of paramount importance. Your website is the digital face of your business, and ensuring its safety and uptime is critical. At Web Ideas, we take web hosting security seriously. We operate our own dedicated servers in multiple Class 4 data centres to provide you with the highest level of protection. In this article, we'll delve into the security measures we have in place to safeguard your website and data.

Purpose-Built Data Centres for Uncompromising Security

Our commitment to web hosting security begins with the choice of data centres. We house our servers in state-of-the-art, purpose-built Class 4 data centres. Here's what these data centres offer:

1. Physical Security:

Our data centres are equipped with robust physical security measures to prevent unauthorised access. This includes biometric authentication, CCTV surveillance, and 24/7 security personnel.

2. Redundant Utility Feeds:

To ensure uninterrupted service, our data centres have multiple utility feeds sourced from independent substations. This redundancy guarantees that power supply remains stable, even in the face of external disruptions.

3. Backup Power Generation:

In the event of a power outage, our data centres rely on multi-megawatt diesel generators for backup power. These generators can sustain our operations until the primary power source is restored.

4. Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) Systems:

Our data centres are equipped with facility-wide UPS systems that provide a seamless transition to backup power during any power disturbances. This ensures continuous operation without any service interruptions.

5. Fire Suppression Systems:

Safety is a top priority, and our data centres are equipped with advanced fire suppression systems to detect and suppress fires quickly, protecting both our servers and your data.

Secure Servers for Your Peace of Mind

At Web Ideas, we go above and beyond to secure our servers, ensuring that your data and website are safe from threats. Here's how we achieve this:

1. Maximum Security Configuration:

Our servers are configured with the highest level of security to safeguard our clients' data and prevent unauthorised access. We follow industry best practices and regularly update security measures to stay ahead of emerging threats.

2. 24/7 Monitoring:

We monitor our servers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our dedicated team is vigilant, ensuring that any potential issues are identified and resolved promptly to maintain the integrity of your website.

3. Data Backups:

Data loss can be catastrophic, which is why we take regular backups seriously. Your data is backed up to a secure facility every 24 hours, and these backups are retained for a period of three months with one each month being kept for a full year. This redundancy ensures that your data is safe and recoverable.


Web hosting security is not something to be taken lightly. When you choose Web Ideas as your hosting provider, you can rest assured that your website and data are in safe hands. Our purpose-built data centres, secure server configurations, vigilant monitoring, and robust backup systems ensure that your online presence remains protected and accessible to your audience, no matter the circumstances. With us, you can focus on growing your business, knowing that your website's security is our top priority.
