about us

We are SpeedyHost

SpeedyHost was formed in 2005 as the result of a merger of two companies; NetworkSolutions UK and BC Internet. The companies had worked on similar projects together during the previous years and envisaged a diverse hosting provider that could serve high powered mission-critical web applications, as well as the hobbyist and home user. SpeedyHost was the result of this vision.

Since 2005 we have served millions of unique page hits for our wide and diverse customer base, and shifted petabytes of data around the world at blisteringly fast speeds, and we continue to grow to this day.

Your website is right at the core of what we do at SpeedyHost. Online-enabling your business, is our business; and it's one that we take a great deal of pride in.

  • To utilise internal quality management systems to attain ISO 9001:2008 accreditation.

Our Facilities

SpeedyHost has a presence in a number of data centres around the world, including the USA, UK, and Germany. In total, our data centres have over 500Gbit's of internet connectivity. Our newest data centre location at "Namesco" features fully redundant power, powerful climate control and fire suppression systems.

Redundant Power

This is part of the main electrical panel feeding the 'A' and 'B' side of our power infrastructure. Everything is duplicated so that every server has two completely independent power feeds for redundancy. We colour-code the panels for easy identification; 'A' is black and 'B' is orange.

HV Transformers

Here you can see the 'B' side transformer, with the 'A' side transformer and generator in the background. The overhead gantry carries our busduct - this conducts the power from the transformers/generators back into the building and is a more efficient solution than using copper cables.

Fire Suppression

We have a total of 85 bottles, each 80 litres at 300 bar pressure of fire extinguishant. We use the environmentally-friendly mix of 50% argon and 50% nitrogen. When these are released, they reduce the oxygen levels in the room so that any fire cannot be sustained.

Heat Rejection

The chilled water pipework takes the warm water from inside the data centre, and returns it into the data centre as cold water. To remove the heat from the water we use a free cooling chiller combination with high surface area for extra efficiency.
