Arachsys was set up in 1998, and has a wide range of customers hosting everything from small personal websites to international trading conglomerates. At the time of writing we host around fifteen hundred commercial web sites. As well as supplying numerous smaller groups with specialist hosting, we have already forged successful links with several large design agencies.
We usually sell space on our system to web designers and design agencies rather than directly to individual users. This enables us to provide an extensive range of relatively sophisticated services at low cost, as we can safely assume our customers have sufficient expertise to use these facilities without causing serious security problems or requiring excessive technical support. For instance, to our knowledge, we are the only UK hosting provider offering full UNIX shell accounts. Our pricing model is also geared towards designers, with substantial discounts for bulk server space.
A representative sample of the many web sites we already host is accessible from the web server index.
