21 Apr Disaster strikes! Web host 123-Reg deletes client sites in clean-up!
Silvertoad offer a comprehensive range of hosting services and we strive hard to provide excellent and cost-effective solutions to our clients. One of the most common questions we’re asked is, “Why should we host our site/system/email etc. with you and not with a big host like 123-Reg?” The main reason for this is cost – where our costs are highly competitive for the full managed service we offer, in comparison to £1.00 a week and upwards costs from 123 Reg and other similar companies.
Our services have been developed over the last 10 years and have been founded on the principle of providing an excellent service, on the latest, leading server hardware and data centre infrastructure, with extensive security, backup and update management. Why? To ensure our customers do not suffer what thousands of 123 reg customers have just experienced, with loss of data and sites which is irretrievable. We have had a small number of our self-hosting customers affected by this issue and are doing all we can to help – if you have been affected by this issue, please do get in touch and we can try to assist.
We provide a full site backup as part of all our hosting packages which is in place to ensure our customers and their businesses are not at risk. Human error is common, but not having adequate backups and systems in place to prevent such a disaster is inconceivable and poor form – whatever way you look at it! As Benjamin Franklin’s fantastic saying goes ‘ The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten’ and this couldn’t be more true in this unfortunate issue.
