Web Hosting Benefits

Private Australian data-centre

Our servers are hosted in a data centre here in Australia, with 24 hour access to their systems, and a 100Mbps connection to Optus for fast, Australian, responses. No extra waiting for transits across the Pacific. No waiting for support staff to return to work in the USA.

Maintenance, when required, is performed during the low traffic times in Australia, not the USA.

Clustered web servers

Your web site will be served by any of a number of machines making up a linux cluster server. If any of these machines fail, the others will take up the load, and your site will remain available. Your data is stored on a disk array that is accessible by all servers in the cluster.

Hourly backups

Every hour, you data is backed up. Your web site, your mysql databse, and your email is all backed up each and every hour of the day.

Free, instant restores

You can initiate a restore of any backup made during the last 24 hours, or 1 backup from midnight on the previous 6 days – a total of 30 backups are available to restore at any time.

$50 AdWords voucher

AdWords ads only appear to people who are actively seeking information that's relevant to your customers' products and services. These ads enable your customers to convert targeted prospects by appearing in the right place, and engaging them at precisely the right moment.

The fact that these prospects are online, actively reading pages and using search terms related to your customers' products or services means they're likely to be interested in what they have to offer. It also means they're likely to act by clicking on their ad to visit their site for more information or to make a purchase.

Promotional credit must be applied to a new AdWords account within seven (7) days of creating the account and is valid only for new Google AdWords customers. Advertisers will be charged for advertising that exceeds the promotional credit. Advertisers will need to suspend their ads if they do not wish to receive additional charges beyond the free credit amount. Subject to ad approval, valid registration and acceptance of the Google AdWords Program standard terms and conditions. The promotional credit is non-transferable and may not be sold or bartered.
