Whilst GetFreeHosting.co.uk is primarily aimed at a UK audience, our hosting servers are based inside a secure data centre located within Ohio, USA.

Our cluster-based GRID network features hundreds of server nodes using the right software for the right job powered by Linux and Unix operating systems. Our hardware throughout the network mainly consists of Quad-CPU Intel Xeon processors which stand up to the most demanding requests of the network such as processing end user requests.

Our platform also consists of separate sub-GRID networks dedicated to such functions such as MySQL databases, FTP management and numerous other functions normally hosted on a handful of machines in other hosting services.

This doesn't of course go to mention the fact that our platform includes multiple redundancy protections such as power protection, backup systems, load balancing hardware, and a very large and expansive Storage Area Network (SAN) with interconnecting fiber optic change distribution servers.

All of this combined allows us and our network itself to seamlessly spread traffic demand across multiple servers simultaneously which gives your sites superior performance in turn, ensuring that your sites stay online and running quickly at all times which is important to you, us and your viewers! Our platform handles millions of requests every day but, has the capability to process hundreds of millions of requests or even billions to service you and more importantly, your viewers and Internet users all over the world.
