Website security. Sorted..

We’ve built our cloud hosting platform like a fortress, packed with all the super-tough features you
need for maximum website security – and real peace of mind. It’s strong stuff.

Website security that really works.

When building brilliant websites are your business, you need to know you’ve got your website security covered, full stop. No hacks, no attacks, no-nonsense. That’s why we designed our hosting platform to protect you – and your clients – from whatever the world throws at you. Safeguard your site, stay in control and automatically store your backups off-site, safe and sound.

Website security: block nuisance bots and IPs

Block nuisance bots and IPs.

Our built-in bot-blocker spots trouble a mile off and stops it from hitting your server. Using our constantly updated list of known bots and malicious IP addresses helps keep your website safe, secure and running smoothly, without you lifting a finger.

Two-factor authentication

Login with secure two-factor authentication.

For safer logins into your server, we’ve rolled out two-factor authentication (2FA) as standard. It’s an extra security measure that verifies who’s trying to access your account, making sure the right people get in fast – and everyone else stays out.

PCI compliance

PCI compliance in 1-click.

If you’re running an e-commerce site, keeping its users safe from fraud is a big responsibility – and our platform’s got you covered.

Any site where users enter their card details directly into a webpage, being redirected to a system like WorldPay or PayPal, needs PCI (payment card industry) compliance.

The good news is, you can switch it on in just one click, blocking all ports, encrypting your connections to run over TLS 1.2 or 1.3 and creating an instant list of permitted IP addresses. Job done.

Secure MySQL access

Secure your MySQL access.

Get super-secure remote MySQL access, so you can control who accesses your website’s database. It creates a list of allowed IP addresses, which new users have to be permitted to join – giving you the chance to check, approve or refuse access and keeping you firmly in the driving seat.

Automatic OS website security updates

Get automatic server security updates.

To stay one step ahead of the latest hacks and attacks, everyone needs to up their game every now and again.

That’s why we’re constantly putting our server operating systems through rigorous security tests, and rolling out updates to make them more robust than ever.

The best bit? You don’t have to do a thing. Every update we make happens automatically – no fuss, no interruptions, no hiccups. Happy days.

Managing user access and teams

Manage user access, in seconds.

Sometimes it takes a team to get a website off the ground, so we’ve made it really easy to manage who accesses your sites and servers. Let people in, time people out, and see who’s accessing what, when.

Send secure invitations in seconds, straight from your STORM dashboard, and control access for individual users and whole teams – whether they’re in your studio, working remotely, external experts or client-side contacts. Boom.

Cloudflare security tool

Pack a punch with 1-click Cloudflare.

When it comes to heavyweight security features, Cloudflare’s built of powerful stuff. It works like a pub bouncer, keeping trouble out of your website, so what’s inside can be even more brilliant.

The result of this caching tool? Lightning speeds, amazing resilience against spikes and server outages, and rock-solid website security, whatever comes your way. Even better, it’s free on some of our packages. Find out more about our Cloudflare integration here.

Offsite backups in our platform

Sleep better, with offsite backups every night.

100% offsite backups, automatically storing and encrypting the latest version of your site at our secure data centres, every night. Every backup is saved for 14 days, or you can switch to a 28-day package for just £5 a month.

We give every server its own separate remote storage container with secure, fully authenticated access. And because they’re never mounted directly onto your servers at filesystem level, whatever happens, hackers can never access your encrypted, backed-up data. Ever.

By being able to spin up a staging site in seconds within our platform, you can also check your backed up data before you hit the restore button live.

Take our platform for a free 7-day spin.

Get stuck into our Neon package, get a feel of our intuitive dashboards, add a site (or two!) and invite your team to play.
