Max Rat Networks
hosting for rodents

Welcome to Max Rat Networks. This is a small, private hosting network providing services to my friends, family and their friends. It isn't my day job. The basic package at "mates rates" is GBP5 a month for one website (we aren't currently using all our bandwidth or disk space so a limit hasn't been set yet), one shell account, and one e-mail domain.

We don't offer a service guarantee, but all support is done on best efforts - and the system runs my mail and sites too! In fact we're averaging less than 10 min downtime per month since we launched in Mar 2006. We currently run on a not for profit basis, with all proceeds going back in to the services, anything left over will go to charity. Our services include:

  • Apache/PHP Web Hosting
  • Java Web Hosting
  • Virus Scanned E-Mail Hosting/Forwarding
  • UNIX Shell Access
  • DNS

The server is leased from and co-located with RackMounted.com, and our uptime record is only possible because of the reliable network, hardware support and fanatical customer service they provide.
