Statement Regarding Hurricane Irma

Written by Jo Stonehouse
Update September 12: Hurricane Irma passed through Tampa without any disruption to our service. Normal operations have now resumed and new server provisions are once again possible.

With Hurricane Irma approaching Florida this weekend, where many of our U.S. based servers are located in our Tampa facility, we would like to assure our customers that every precaution has been made in preparation for the storm.

The facility that houses our servers was built with just this kind of weather event in mind, located 90ft above sea level in a hardened hurricane-resistant windowless bunker. The datacenter has 'critical infrastructure' designation with the Department of Homeland Security and City of Tampa, and as such has dual power connectivity to both the airport and hospital power grids.

Better backups, more peace of mind.

There's nothing worse than that sinking feeling you get when you realise you've accidentally deleted that all important business email, or wiped out a web project that you've been working so hard on over the past few weeks.



That's why it's so important to keep good backups of your hosting account, so that sinking feeling doesn't last for long.

Backing up your hosting account regularly is a very important step in case of an emergency. Whether you need to restore because you accidentally removed a file, a software update caused a problem, or because your site was hacked, it is essential that you have a backup so you can revert to it if the need arises.

It's all too easy to get carried away in our busy everyday life and forget to take regular backups. That's why we take the hassle out of backups for you and include automatic free backups with our hosting accounts. And now, we're proud to introduce our enhanced, turbo charged backup solution - JetBackup -  which mean our backups now include 30 days worth of snapshots, and the ability to self-restore files, databases, emails and much more besides.
