Introduction to Basic Hosting

Your ICT resources should be hosted in a safe, secure and stable environment, and this is exactly what BCX’s state-of-the-art data centres offer. By having us host your equipment in one of our 12 data centres located across the country, you are guaranteed the highest level of availability and security.

What is Basic Hosting?

When you mention the word ‘hosting’ in an IT environment, most people assume you are referring to the hosting of website content on a remote server somewhere. While this is an accurate, albeit over-simplified, explanation of the concept, we see hosting a little differently.

For us, it’s not about simply giving your remote access to a number of files and applications on our server; it’s about creating actual space for you within our world-class data centres, so you can install and access all the ICT equipment you need to support the operation of your business.

Our hosting solutions can be tailored to suit the needs of any business, and with up to 99.995% availability, our data centres provide the ideal envir onment for any business to host its mission critical applications,
