Another area tech start-ups try to scrimp on to their detriment is on the supporting infrastructure/hosting – which leads to problems when volume traffic starts to use the platform.  Therefore, being able to host the platform on a commercial grade server is important to avoid any bandwidth or scalability issues when the business is launched.  As such we have developed partnerships with various high grade hosting companies that will provide hosting for the business worth up to £8,000 for free which will ensure we do not compromise on the standard of our infrastructure.  We are not tied into them in any way, and can move away at any time – but it’s a great deal to help us reduce our start-up costs as much as possible without compromising on the standard of our infrastructure.
