Hosting prices

We offer server hosting in our racks in Maidenhead. The price depends on the size of your server, how many ethernet ports you would like connected to our network (for internet access), how many power connections you would like (e.g. some servers are dual power feed), how much power your server uses (peak), and how much data you transfer. Power usage is becoming a key factor in server hosting.
