Maximise the efficiency of your network and the productivity of your organisation through APH website and data hosting.

What is Hosting?

Hosting is a kind of ‘active storage’. It’s a place to put files (and sometimes applications) so that they can be accessed via a network. The most familiar example of this is website hosting, which allows the website to be accessed via the internet.

There are many different types of business hosting, including:

  • Website hosting including ecommerce sites, client web portals etc.
  • Server hosting, where you outsource your physical and/or virtual servers
  • File hosting, where files are stored remotely for authorised access from anywhere
  • Email hosting, which you may think of as ‘webmail’
  • Desktop hosting, where your workstations access data on a remote server

All of these involve placing files or data on a server and accessing them from elsewhere. That can be via the internet or over a private network – hosting does not mean your data is made public.
