Home Sweet Home
Every web site on the Internet must have a 'home'. This is in the form of a computer somewhere on the internet that 'serves' your web site to the rest of the world. We are able to provide this home (and quite a nice home it is at that) for your web site at extremely competitive prices.
Australian Based Servers
With the Internet being global and all, some may tell you that it does not matter in which country your site is hosted. Absolutely not true.
For one, distance is an issue. Light itself (would you believe) would take 1/20th of a second to travel from, say, the United States to Australia. This may seem insignificant, but if you consider that when someone loads up your page, their browser may easily need to talk to your site some 20 times, it quickly adds up. And a connection from the US to Australia is actually unlikely to go at the speed of light (which is the absolute fastest it could go under perfect conditions). It tends to be more like half a second. In web page terms, it is SLOW.
Secondly, search engines such as Google alter their search results in many cases based on the Geographic location of both the user and the web site. One of the ways they position a web site is by where it is hosted. This means that it is possible for your Australian web site to not appear in Australian web search results if it is not hosted in Australia. If any of your intended audience is located in Australia, this is really bad.
And the sad thing is that a great many of small business web sites in Australia are hosted offshore, in most cases without the owner's knowledge.
All of our servers are located in Australia in high quality, secure locations.
Hosted on Windows
Yep, and we are proud of it. By basing our servers on Microsoft Windows, not only do we offer stable, supportable services that connect natively to a wide range of applications, we also offer the best of both worlds.
Open web technologies commonly used on other operating systems, such as PHP and MySQL, also run well on Windows, and we are also able to offer Windows only technology such as ASP and ASP.NET
Our standard base package offers equivalent resources to the enterprise level packages of many Australian web hosting companies, at the price of their entry level packages.
Our standard package of $22.00 per month includes:
Windows hosting 1Gb disk space 5 Email accounts with webmail, IMAP, POP3 and free spam filtering 1 MySQL database account ASP, ASP.NET, PHP and Perl scripting languages You are able to add on additional resources easily and cheaply.
While being committed to creating Australia's easiest to use web hosting service so that you can maintain and configure you own account with the greatest of ease, you can ignore that completely.
Forget concepts such as Primary DNS server, registry key and MX records - you won't need them.
You need do nothing but ask us (by email, phone or whichever way you choose) and we'll configure your account for you; from registering your domain, to setting up your email accounts, both at the start and whenever you need to make a change.
At no extra cost
