How does web hosting work?

Once you purchase a Web hosting plan, barnetweb stores your site on one of our servers and assigns it a unique DNS. The DNS serves as the address that allows people around the world to find and view your website. This unique address is required in order for people to view your site.

By purchasing a website hosting package, you’re basically buying space on one of our servers. It’s similar to the space on a computer’s hard drive, but the server allows your website’s files to be accessed from anywhere.

What kind of web hosting do I need?

At barnetweb we offer both Windows and Linux hosting. Which one you need depends on what you want to do with your site, like whether you want to create a shopping cart, blog or podcast with a specific Web application. If you’re not sure if you need Windows or Linux, you can always call our hosting support team. We’re here to help.

What can I use to build my website?

You can build your website in several different ways – from hand-coding with HTML to using a website builder program.

If you require a lot of functionality and versatility from your website, you’ll benefit from programs and applications that can help you build your site. Our Web hosting plans give you access to free, server-side applications that can be used to develop and customize your website, including popular Content Management System (CMS) applications like WordPress® and Joomla!®.

barnetweb try to make building your website as simple as possible. If you prefer to use popular Web design software such as Adobe Dreamweaver®, Microsoft Expression®, and Apple iWeb, you can easily upload your files to your OIA  hosting account.

We are a distinctly technical company throughout. The local team has a broad base in understanding the technical business requirements to effectively solve problems and develop solutions on behalf of our customers. The fully managed network extends redundantly from London and spans globally though strategic relationships with national and international carriers.

The facility lies in custom designed premises and originally built in 1997 split over two data floors. A 2nd data centre, on the same site opened mid 2008 and provides an additional 10,000 square feet as 500 foot prints. This 2nd building is one of the very few Tier 4 N+N facilities in the UK.

Physical site access control, CCTV and internal proximity locking systems combine with a documented and logged access control procedures to protect the facility and customer equipment. This ensures that should an installation need to be included within a security certification programme, the facility supports some of the key requirements.

The data floor environment is monitored and maintained by redundant cooling circuits, and power supplied to the customer racks is backed up via a combination of battery based UPS units and diesel generators with over 86 hours of fuel maintained on-site at all times.

Quality connectivity

The network spans from multiple points in London. With data travelling over multiple telecom carriers, diversely routed, terminating in multiple locations therefore our customers can be assured of the highest level of service.

Network services include Internet IP, Ethernet private line into other geographic locations, and full or partial BGP based transit. All delivered over a resilient MPLS


The site is connected via two 11,000 Volt (11kV) connections to the power distribution grid, each being fed from a different sub-station. This utility supply is protected by two backup diesel generators configured as N+1, with the new facility configures as N+N followed by an array of battery based UPS systems. This arrangement helps to protect against disruption to the hosting service.

Environmental control

Each data floor is arranged with sufficient cooling to retain a sensible hosting environment, even in the event of a partial failure of the system. The environment is carefully monitored 24 hours per day with a grid of temperature sensors deployed around the populated racking area, reporting back to the operations centre.


We recognise that the security of your systems is crucial, including the hardware and it’s ability to operate. The facility has been designed with careful attention to the exterior land, controlled access ways and heavy CCTV coverage which is digitally recorded and retained for up to 90 days.

Access into the data floor is restricted to our customers hosting full racks, and is only granted if we have received advance notice in line with the site’s formal documented access policy. Access to and within the building is through magnetically locked doors, protected by proximity card authentication.

 Floor Space

The facility has two data floors each 2,000 square feet with raised floors up to 300mm for cable distribution.

Technical support

We have a technical team with wide-ranging skills set. Assistance can be offered to most software and hardware platforms, firewalls and network hardware.

We operate a 24×7 support service for urgent technical faults. Access is via a telephone number that will directly contact a member of our support team, not a call handler. In instances where a fault is unable to be resolved by the on-call engineer, an internal escalation process will be initiated. The engineer can also grant access to the facility, staff listed on the Control Panel, and third party support engineers (for example hardware maintenance, Telco operators).

Non-urgent technical issues can be submitted for resolution via e-mail, which will be injected into our ticket system. All queries, issues and faults are logged and managed via an automated ticket system that assigns a unique identification number for traceability.

Support is split into 2 types

Internet Marketing & Search Engines (SEO)

What is Internet Marketing, SEO or Search Engine Optimisation (courtesy of Wikipedia)

Search engine optimization(SEO) is the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via “natural” (“organic” or “algorithmic”) search results. Usually, the earlier a site is presented in the search results, or the higher it “ranks”, the more searchers will visit that site. SEO can also target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, and industry-specific vertical search engines.


As an internet marketing strategy for increasing a site’s relevance, SEO considers how search algorithms work and what people search for. SEO efforts may involve a site’s coding, presentation, and structure, as well as fixing problems that could prevent search engine indexing programs from fully spidering a site.

Other, more noticeable efforts may include adding unique content to a site, ensuring that content is easily indexed by search engine robots, and making the site more appealing to users. Another class of techniques, known as “Black Hat” SEO or spamdexing , use methods such as link farms and keyword stuffing that tend to harm search engine user experience. Search engines look for sites that employ these techniques and may remove their listings.

The initialism “SEO” can also refer to “search engine optimizers”, a term adopted by an industry of consultants who carry out optimization projects on behalf of clients, and by employees who perform SEO services in-house. Search engine optimizers may offer SEO as a stand-alone service or as a part of a broader marketing campaign. Because effective SEO may require changes to the HTML source code of a site, SEO tactics may be incorporated into web site development and design . The term “search engine friendly” may be used to describe web site designs, menus, content management systems and shopping carts that are easy to optimize.

Internet Marketing Activity can take many forms, for example;

  • Internet Marketing
  • Display advertising
  • Interactive advertising
  • Email marketing
  • Web analytics
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Cost Per Action
  • Revenue sharing
  • Contextual advertising
  • Search engine marketing
  • Search engine optimization
  • Social media optimization
  • Pay Per Click advertising
  • Paid inclusion

What we do includes the following

  1. During development it’s vital that the site is optimised for Search Engines, often referred to as SEO. We ensure pages are correctly labeled and headed with adequate meta tags in place. The way your site is built is VITAL to ensuring Search Engines can index as many pages as possible.
  2. Once built, the site needs to have as much search engine relevant content as possible. We can advice or actually write and add this content for you
  3. Research into your industry, your competitors and specific keywords and phrases to ensure you are hitting as many of the correct people as possible
  4. Reciprocal Linking Programs
  5. Set up and run CCP (cost per click) or banner campaigns. With this form of advertising you can actually relate each pound spent to a tangible result.
  6. Viral campaigns where traffic is driven to your site by initiating fun and interactive emails, which recipients are encouraged too pass onto friends and colleagues, while in the process, promoting your brands/company for you. Sit back and watch some amazing results.
