Offsite Backups

Does your current hosting company charge you for backups? Your data is extremely important which is why we offer offsite backups every single hours as standard on all accounts.

Included at no extra cost

Companies may offer a base line dedicated, Virtual Private Server (VPS) or Cloud Server for cheaper but does it include everything we do at no extra cost?

It is worth noting that every single GURU Dedicated Server (GDS) comes with cPanel, CloudLinux, LiteSpeed, Hourly-offsite backups and is fully managed as standard. Making sure your websites run fast is more to do with the setup of the server than the alleged specification.

You don’t need to know how to code, how to administer server, how to keep it updated, or have any technical people on staff. We are your technical staff. GURU are here 24/7 to patch, update, monitor and keep your websites running as fast and reliably as possible so that you can keep focus on your own business.

True Cloud Hosting

Cloud Hosting is a term that is now thrown around, however, in many cases it’s still the same old hosting that you’re used countless times before. Which means your websites are sat on one server. If that one server fails, or a part of it fails – your website will go down.

At GURU we offer what we consider ‘true’ cloud hosting. The server that your websites are hosted on are not tied to a single server. The computing and storage elements that make up your hosting server are not tied to a single server. Running both storage and computing elements septate means that we can move you, without downtime, between hardware – add more hardware or even take it out of service for maintenance without any issues.
