Complex Bespoke Website and Application Hosting
Strategies provide a range of tailored and sophisticated complex bespoke website and application hosting and email services for the web sites developed by us. We are based in Farnborough on the borders of the counties of Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire just 30 miles from London.
We actively monitor all of our complex business hosting services constantly so we know immediately if a service fails. The system is monitored 24/7 by an external network to report on any problems. Our engineers are on site and on call 24 hours a day to guarantee you the reliability your business requires.
Most companies rely on you complaining when your website or part of it becomes unavailable, obviously a problem if your site goes down during the evening or early morning.
With a call centre, you ring, get a fault number, and hope that someone gets around to looking at the issue for you.
But we actively monitor critical parts of your server and our hosting facility and network to recover any problem before you even notice.

Nothing Is Outsourced
Many smaller web design agencies outsource their hosting and email services to a server farm that focus on just hardware and maintenance support. They know nothing about you or your business needs. Our experience shows that ‘incidents’ are more likely to be related to a software issue or failure and having experienced technicians always available is indispensable.
You always have first priority with Strategies and because we control every parameter ourselves including hosting and email, we offer unrivalled levels of service. We are in total control over the operating environment of your website and your online presence. All of our hosting and email services are provided and controlled in-house.
We specialise in sophisticated set-ups and hosting over multiple machines for various applications. In some instances, multiple dedicated servers are required for specific applications, which can make the projects uneconomic. However, we can tailor-build solutions to give you low start-up costs for sophisticated applications.

Latest case study
“It has been a real pleasure working with Strategies throughout our website projects, they are always very helpful, quick to respond and patient when trying out lots of new ideas.”
print.one is a new, online collection of unique designs submitted from vintage archives, independent artists and renowned contemporary design studios. The textile and digital designs are available for immediate and secure one-off purchase from the website.
Traditionally salespeople have travelled globally to present and sell their designs in person. print.one represents a new way of allowing customers to rapidly purchase designs to suit their exact requirements without the need to view the designs “in the flesh”. Utilising artificial intelligence has allowed the collection to rapidly expand without the need to manually categorise and analyse each design.
The result is a market leading website with a unique user interface that is able to serve the needs of global clients 24/7.
