A Parish Council Clerk Case StudyUsing Cloud Next for the registration of the .gov.uk domain name and also to host the website for the parish was easy to setup. The fact that they also offer an email service (we had 40 mailboxes so each councillor could have their own) suited our needs perfectly. The free SSL certificate meant that our site was secured from launch and saved us money. We had to wait for the payment to be authorised by the Council but Cloud Next were happy to wait for the payment. I couldn't be more happy with the service offered.
Malware, spam, hackers and security breaches are a 24/7 security concern. By default, our hosting provides security to keep you safe against harmful web attacks. All of our hosting packages come with free SSL certificates, malware scanning, are PCI-DSS compliant, include 1 Tbps+ DDoS protection as well as brute force login protection and email scans plus much more.
The tools we provide help you to save time, money and protect your sites. All security tools & services are included in all hosting packages. We will never charge you for these - you shouldn't have to pay for website security.
