Tollon has been hosting business websites since 1997 for local business to household names. Our shared hosting platform uses Citrix XenServer which is a complete server virtualization platform and built on the powerful Xen hypervisor. Xen technology is widely acknowledged as the fastest and most secure virtualization software in the industry. XenServer is designed for efficient management of Windows® and Linux® and delivers server consolidation and business continuity.
We offer two levels of shared hosting. Our "Standard" platform still has all the benefits of resilience however the number of sites we host on these servers varies depending on CPU, Memory and disk utilisation whereas with our "Premium" we guarantee a maximum server contention of 30 : 1. You could perhaps consider our "Premium" service as a stepping stone to your own dedicated server.
With the majority of today's website being driven by CMS (Content Management System) our hosting plans include a generous SQL database relevant to the platform. If you need additional databases these can be provisioned on either MySQL or Microsoft SQL Server Standard R2 irrespective of the platform your website is hosted on.
Internet Information Services 7.5 is the latest and most powerful Microsoft web server platform to date and provides improved support for Classic ASP, ASP.NET, PHP and Perl.
