Your Database Options

MySQL Hosting

The world's most widely used open-source database software offers a more cost effective alternative to the standard Microsoft database options, giving you the freedom to choose the best operating system for your solution.

By hosting your MySQL database with UKFast, a PCI Compliant and ISO 27001 accredited host, you can be sure that the security of your websites and/or applications is guaranteed.

Both our cloud and dedicated hosting solutions offer MySQL database support via the easy-to-use cPanel control panel and are backed up by our team of experts who provide award-winning support 24/7/365.

Microsoft SQL Server Hosting

Our secure, reliable and affordable MS SQL server hosting includes SQL server 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2014 and the latest release 2016 to run your business-critical applications. Our team of Microsoft Certified Professionals configure and support your MS SQL Servers around the clock, so you get the peace of mind that that your business-critical databases are being taken care of.

In addition to award-winning support we also offer full remote access to manage all editions of SQL server using SQL Enterprise Manager via RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol). We also deliver high-availability with guaranteed redundancy by hosting your SQL servers in a failover clustered environment.

SQL server 2012 is available in three core editions - Enterprise, Business Intelligence and Standard. We make complex database hosting hassle free, simple as that.

Oracle hosting

Whilst Oracle is one of the best database options for hosting applications and servers, it can be complex; requiring experienced technicians to set up, manage and support it.

We designed our 24/7 managed services so that you benefit from the availability and security of Oracle, without having to use all of your team to maintain this demanding platform. Our experts can design and deploy the most appropriate, high-availability solution based upon any technical and business requirements running on Windows or Linux Dell servers.

We operate from our PCI compliant data centre; hosting and managing databases in an efficient, secure and environmentally-friendly facility. We support the 10g, 11g and 12c versions of Oracle, and offer full remote access to manage them via RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol). Your peace of mind is guaranteed with continuous monitoring and proactive alerts from experienced professionals.

PostgreSQL hosting

We provide PostgreSQL hosting on both our Linux and Windows hosting platforms as an alternative to other open-source databases such as MySQL, and more costly database systems like Oracle or MS SQL Server.

Thanks to its stability and power, PostgreSQL is used by some of the world's leading companies such as Skype, Cisco and Red Hat, plus many universities and governments.

As PostgreSQL supports the majority of programming languages such as Java, .NET, Perl, Python, PHP and Ruby; integration into current systems is a seamless process.

Our highly-qualified team is there for you throughout deployment and the management of data-driven applications using PostgreSQL. By storing your data in one central location, the integrity of your data is guaranteed. Plus, as we're a PCI Compliant and ISO27001 accredited host, your data is backed up daily and is accessible 24/7.
