Domain names come with full nameserver and DNS control. Renewals can be made at any time without having to wait for the expiration date. Domain names and mailboxes can be easily configured with Gsuite and Office 365. You can even start receiving emails immediately.

Website hosting and virtual private servers.

Blazing fast cloud based website hosting. Samsung SSD storage and Intel XEON technology. Reliable and powerful Virtual Private Servers with rapid provisioning.

Our website hosting is designed to scale with your business, providing the same business-grade performance no matter how much traffic your website gets. Our Virtual Private Servers provide turbo power with rapid provisioning and without the huge ongoing private server expenses.

MyNous - your tailored control panel.

MyNous is a simple and elegant alternative to old-fashioned, complicated control panels and allows you to manage your domains, websites, databases and email accounts all in one place.

 MyNous was developed from the ground up because we were sick of clunky and old fashioned control panels. With 70+ one-click installs of popular CMS software titles such as WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, Magento and more, MyNous is an elegant alternative to a typical control panel that you’ll want to use.

Website care plans.

We provide tailored website care plans for complete peace of mind, optimum performance, development, ongoing results and growth.

Your time is better spent engaging with your customers and growing your business, not logging in and updating your website. We take care of all your security, maintenance and updates for you.

Secure infrastructure.

Security breaches and exposure to malware are an ever-present threat on today’s web. Our secure UK hosting keeps you safe against harmful web attacks.

Automatic malware scanning.

We scan all websites on our WordPress, Windows and Linux hosting platforms every day for common malware. Malware – such as web shells or mail/spam daemons – can compromise your installation, giving criminals access to your site’s data, email and content.

We provide you with a detailed report on the results of this scan in our MyNous control panel. This is similar to services provided by some other web hosts – which they typically charge a premium for.

Should malware be discovered, we are alerted straight away and act accordingly. Should your services be taken offline as a result, an automated restore is activated giving you complete peace of mind.

WordPress users also have another way to check for malware, through our WordPress Checksum Report in our WordPress Tools suite. This checks that your WordPress core matches the official WordPress repository.

  • Disables PHP Mail – If malware is detected, PHP mail is disabled to prevent your site from further infecting others through email.
  • On-demand scanning – What makes our malware scanning special is that you can also run our scanner on-demand. This is convenient because you don’t have to wait until the next scheduled scan.
  • Immediate results – If you’ve discovered malware on your site, you’ll need to update the software or plugins, and delete any compromised files. Once you’ve made the changes, you can re-scan right away. You’ll get confirmation on whether your fixes have worked immediately.

PCI compliant.

If your business takes card payments, your hosting needs to be PCI compliant.

To accept, store and process debit/credit card information, the hosting provider must be compliant with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS). These standards were introduced to reduce credit card fraud.

The PCI Security Standards Council are responsible for ordering regular tests on hosting providers. They test for vulnerabilities where hackers could potentially steal cardholder information. Nous Digital consistently pass these independent audits.

Email scans.

All emails and forwarders sent and received are subject to advanced antivirus and anti-spam protection.

We use 3 layers of inbound spam and virus scanning:

  • Network-level – Commercial anti-spam blacklists from Spamhaus, Invaluement and Barracuda Networks are used to reject mail from known spam networks.
  • Virus Scanning – Any known malware signatures are rejected.
  • Content-based – Messages are scanned for spam-like characteristics and filtered into the ‘junk mail’ folder.

Our data centres.

Our central UK data centres are ISO27001:2013 certified. Their security features include:

  • 24-7 security on site
  • Photo ID and swipe card entry
  • CCTV inside and out
  • Gated access and secure perimeter fencing
  • Redundant and uninterruptible power supplies

Nous Digital staff need to identify themselves before accessing any internal system. We use centralised identification and security policies that follow a least privilege and need-to-know access policy.

Two-factor authentication.

Unfortunately, many security measures are rendered ineffective if your password is compromised. So we offer the option to use two-factor authentication (2FA) for MyNous and SSH access.

2FA is a way to add an extra layer of security. Our 2FA uses TOTP apps, which provide you with a time-sensitive single-use code to enter as well your password. 2FA app providers include Google and Microsoft. The apps are run from your phone.

We also enforce another form of ‘2FA’: random security checks when payments are made. This will require you to call us and confirm additional security information provided by yourself when first signing-up.

1 Tbps+ DDoS protection.

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are a growing hazard on the web. If your shared hosting or virtual private server (VPS) is attacked, usually you don’t have much of a choice other than to weather the storm and wait for the attack to stop.

That’s why we introduced 1 Tbps+ anti-DDoS protection. This enterprise-level protection covers you against most attacks. It only filters-out malicious traffic, so you can carry on working without noticing any interruption.

Web application firewall.

One way to halt security breaches is to prevent criminals from getting access to your code on the server. Our Web Application Firewall (WAF) helps protect your data and software by blocking suspicious activity.

A common way to attack a website is to use web forms to insert malicious code. Forms aren’t covered by traditional firewalls, as they need to allow information to pass from the user to the server where the website is hosted.

The Nous WAF inspects every HTTP request for SQL injection, trojans, cross-site scripting, path traversal and many other types of attack. It performs each inspection in less than a millisecond.

We regularly update our set of rules that filter-out malicious requests. This ruleset is made from commercially-available resources and custom rules written by Tom, our hosting security specialist.

Brute force login protection.

A common attack vector for cybercriminals is to use ‘brute force’ to guess your website’s ‘admin’ password. These are applications that cycle through common passwords and use trial and error – random letters and numbers – to try to crack your credentials.

Our platform includes StackProtect, which monitors log-in attempts to your website. It checks for potential ‘evil’ automated requests. If they’re detected, it uses Google’s latest reCAPTCHA tools and if necessary, blocks those attempts.

This also stops our platform being slowed-down. It blocks up to six million requests – every day. Logins to our WordPress hosting platform are our most popular target, but StackProtect covers all common website logins.
