Memsnet Hosting Review: Can You Really Believe This Host? We Find Out.
Memset was started in 2002 and since then has grown into one of the UK’s premier hosting providers. With a particular focus on government hosting and the slew of specific requirements that entails, they’ve worked with major clients like the Home Office and the NHS as well as private sector brands like Lush and the Hilton group. Catering to higher need customers, they focus exclusively on cloud, VPN, and dedicated server solutions.
Memset doesn’t offer any shared servers solutions, instead focusing on the niche of businesses who demand more from their hosting provider. However, they do have an extremely robust offerings within that niche.
For hosting products, they offer customers managed virtual servers, Windows and Linux-based dedicated servers, and cloud hosting through OpenStack (with a focus on appealing to application companies). They also offer cloud storage at both an individual and enterprise level.
In addition to their core hosting and cloud products, they offer a range of enhanced networking and security solutions to ensure your server runs quickly and securely. These include a secure network to connect disparate physical servers as well as a vLAN service for secure virtual servers, a proprietary load balancing system, and SSL certificates.
When it comes to software server security, they offer vulnerability scanning, server monitoring and enhanced firewall services (including DDoS protection). Should both of these fail, their final layer of server defense is an intrusion detection system, which customers can opt to have either work as an alert or can employ Memset to fix (protected support).
Memset also offers comprehensive daily managed backup solutions in partnership with R1Soft for their Windows-hosted servers and cPanel for their Linux-based solutions.
The final prong of the Memset offerings is a comprehensive range of services specific to the UK government and associated agencies (PSN network) as well as other fields where security is a premium (eg, financial services) over a standard internet network.
This branch includes managed and unmanaged VPS, bare metal cloud servers, private clouds, VPN services, and protocol bridges for PSN-internet transfers.
