Web hosting, Domain Name Registration and Technical Services

In addition to designing and building websites, Lunaria also offer managed web hosting and domain name registration.

Rather than offer pre-defined hosting packages, we prefer to ask what your requirements are, then offer a package that meets your needs. For instance, you may already have email services and are just looking for somewhere to host your web site. We can configure your domain name to use any existing service for email (e.g. Microsoft Office 365) whilst hosting your web site on our infrastructure.

If you already have a domain name, and would like to use our services, we can guide you through the technical minefield of DNS (Domain Name System) so that all your services point in the right direction.

Rather than offer a £1/minute support number, please feel free to give us a call on 0131 202 6612. As we are a small business, there are times that you may need to leave a message. Alternatively, contact us via email : support@lunaria.co.uk, or through our Facebook chat.

For examples of sites that we host, please feel free to browse our portfolio and read what our client say about us.

Technical Services

We have over 10 years experience of web hosting, security and server management. Our server infrastructure is a mix of CentOS/RHEL and Ubuntu Linux, managed through long standing contractual agreements with cPanel/WHM for server management software and also with CWCS , a UK-based company specialising in hardware and network services. Our hosting provision is based on Dedicated Servers, rather than shared or VPS-type packages. This ensures that we can deliver the best performance with the greatest degree of control and flexibility.

We take security seriously and ensure to the greatest extent possible that the sites we host are up to date and free from security flaws or vulnerabilities. We achieve this by running daily updates to all the WordPress sites that we host, and also by using the Wordfence firewall as standard on all sites.

We believe in the power and flexibility of open (non-proprietary) application frameworks and tools. We use MySQL/MariaDB as our core storage/persistence technology but also have experience with PostgreSQL, the Django framework and MongoDB.

Our own infrastructure uses the Apache web server, but we also have experience with Nginx.

We have a number of clients for whom we provide technical services on their infrastructure. These include (but are not limited to) OS and software upgrades and patching, maintenance, security, data analysis and data import/export.

More recently, we have been involved in projects built using the Ionic Framework that integrates both React and Angular javascript frameworks for rapid mobile-first front end design.
