KDA’s Dedicated Hosting solutions provide first class full or partial management and support…

…but with so many dedicated web hosting providers to choose from, what makes KDA stand head and shoulders above the rest? Briefly:

  • Our service continuity assurance is 100% transparent with a minimum 99.9% uptime guarantee, backed with compensation should we ever fail to meet the targets set out in our service level agreement (SLA).
  • Top quality branded hardware, chosen for its ultra-reliability and longevity.
  • Ultra-secure dedicated server: All our managed servers come with their primary storage configured with hardware RAID Level 1 as standard, this means that all data written to the hard disk is also mirrored to a second drive, providing you with an extra layer of protection against hard disk failure. We can also provide RAID Level 5, 6 or 10 on request – please ask for details (find out more about our ultra-secure servers)
  • Our secure UK location is temperature controlled and monitored 24-7-365.
  • Your own UK dedicated server, exclusively for your use, customised to your exact requirements with any combination of server hardware and software.
  • The flexibility to expand and upgrade as your business grows.
  • No surprises – all hardware, software and KDA management services are price-fixed annually – one straightforward monthly fee.
  • 30 day guarantee
  • Experts available on call whenever you need help.

If you choose a fully-managed server, we take care of everything, you simply use us like a normal shared hosting account.

If you choose a partially-managed server, we take care of the big issues such as OS updates, fixing hardware issues, and helping you with troubleshooting. You take care of the day to day matters.

It’s simple – you need to focus on growing your business. You can do that when you hand over the technical aspects of running your own servers to KDA. We’ll help ensure you save time, money, and eliminate hosting-related stress!
