About this website's server
This website is hosted by 123-reg within a secure UK datacentre.
All traffic (transferral of files) between this website and your browser is encrypted and delivered over HTTPS.
123-reg go above and beyond to keep their systems safe from hacking, hardware failures, software failures, and physical damage. All their servers are located in their own highly secure data centre, which is based in the UK.
Access to the servers is tightly controlled and limited to just essential personnel. Power is drawn from the National Grid through two different sources, and they also have uninterruptible power supplies as well as on-site generators just in case.
Along with their physical security measures, you can also take peace of mind by knowing that all your data is kept safe behind a secure firewall with multiple layers of protection. They have regular backups of all the data on their servers and store copies of the data off-site, so even if the worst occurs, your data will still be there.
The data controller of this website is: Mike Nash Designer, UK.
