About M8 INTERNETHistory
Established in 1998, providing basic, cheap, and reliable website hosting
Using only the highest quality servers based in the United Kingdom
The data centre offers a secure, resilient environment for our web hosting platform
Based in a secure facility the data centre is built to an N+1 specification, so that if any particular service fails - e.g. electricity or air conditioning - another backup service automatically takes over the failed service's job
Dual power feeds enter the building at different points and Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) ensure that all power to the server area is clean and spike free
In the event of a power outage the UPS can take the entire data centre load for up to five minutes
However within 20 seconds our redundant generators are able to indefinitely take on the entire data centre load
The data centre is manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so that if anything goes wrong engineers can respond quickly and effectively to the problem
Access to the data centre is via a master access list using Smart Card authentication
Access to the data centre is by authorisation only
CCTV operates throughout the facility
Cooling & Fire Suppression
The temperature of the data centre is kept at a steady 20oC to allow optimum equipment performance
Our fire detection system monitors the room for any sign of fire and allows operators to respond to such a situation using a variety of fire suppression techniques
100% Dell Servers
We use only Dell servers in our website hosting platform
Utilising state-of-the-art technology we have built a web hosting platform that is second to none
Our platform is designed in such a way that if any server fails another server automatically and without delay takes over that server's workload
For example, if one of our mail servers breaks down another server automatically comes online, with all the correct configuration, and takes over the work of the failed server
During this period no email is lost
As well as this, all data is stored in two large network disk arrays
Data is automatically synchronised between the arrays so that in the event of an array failing the remaining array continues to serve data to the servers with no downtime
Website Hosting Infrastructure
The following diagram represents the website hosting infrastructure
Our current server specification is :
Dual Quad core Intel® Xeon® Processor 3.16GHz with 2x6MB Cache
8 GB RAM
Dual 136 GB SCSI Drive (for the operating system)
RAID Mirroring (for the operating system)
Dual Power Supplies
Dual Gigabit Network Adapters
100% Cisco Gigabit Network
The network operates on industry-leading network equipment from Cisco Systems
All our switches and routers are developed by Cisco
Our network is based on gigabit technology, which means that it runs at a speed of 1000 Mb per second - most web hosting networks are limited to 100 Mb per second
Our network also utilises 100% CAT6 network cable, which contains four pairs of copper wire and, unlike CAT5, utilises all four pairs
CAT6 supports Gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet and supports communications at more than twice the speed of CAT5e, which is the other popular standard for Gigabit Ethernet cabling
Redhat Linux Platform
Redhat is the leading provider of Linux open source software
For many years now Redhat Linux has been the number one choice for website hosting companies, not just because of Redhat's amazing scalability but also because of its track record as the most stable operating system available in the market today
Our systems utilise the latest Redhat server technology to allow our servers to be continually up to date with Redhat system & security patches
Unlike many of our competitors we run Redhat Enterprise Linux, the most stable release of Redhat Linux available and the only version that keeps completely up to date with security patches
Through use of the above facilities, technology, infrastructure, network, and software we provide one of the most stable and reliable website hosting platforms you will find
