We require all customers to be fully compliant with our General Terms and Conditions and use our hosting services only for the normal operation of a personal or small business website. This means you cannot use your account for storage or file sharing, as this is not what our services are intended to support.

BUSINESS HOSTING PACKAGES

Our shared hosting packages are the most economical, allowing you to have your sites hosted in a separate secure account in a shared hosting environment. For the most part, the Business Hosting Standard covers most personal and business website needs, and the Business Hosting Plus package is ideal for small Online Stores as they start out.

ADVANCED HOSTING FEATURES

VPS CLUSTERING

The advanced infrastructure allows us to offer VPS clustering. A cluster provides multiple servers that work together to ensure full availability for your site.

SELF-HEALING FAILOVER

In the event that the physical computer your VPS is running on fails, our systems detect this and automatically mount your VPS on another available computer, then they automatically point your IP address to the new system and your VPS is brought back online in the exact state it was when the failure occurred.

COMPLETE SERVER BACKUPS

Your entire VPS backed up twice weekly, you can restore individual files or your entire VPS. We retain at least 5 backups.

NETWORK REDUNDANCY

Our network includes feeds from Telstra, Primus, Sole TPG, NextGen, WAIX and PIPE. This ensures maximum network efficiency and minimal downtime if any routes are disrupted due to provider issues. BGP routing ensures that your connection always takes the shortest route, selecting the best path through our network partners from your location.

DDOS PROTECTION

99% of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks originate from outside Australia. We route all international incoming traffic through a DDOS scrubbing centre in Melbourne. We have direct cross connects to the scrubbing centre to ensure minimal latency for our international clients. The scrubbing centre inspects and scrubs traffic and ensures that only clean legitimate traffic reaches our network.

WHERE ARE THE SERVERS LOCATED?

All the servers are located in the OmniConnect Data Centre (OCDC). It is strategically located 35km outside of the CBD ‘risk zone’.

OCDC was built to be environmentally responsible by choosing ‘green’ technologies, including efficient fresh air cooling, its own rainwater collection and filtration system, and a solar array that can at times supply up to 100% of critical IT power requirements.

Secured by RFID readers and biometric locks on all doors and spiked full perimeter fence and gates, OCDC access is always escorted by OmniConnect staff to provide our customers with the security they require. Remotely accessible security surveillance cameras are installed at all points of entry and exit.

The temperature in the technical space stays at 22°C (±2°C), with a humidity range of 50% (±10%). Fire detection and suppression equipment, power generators in conjunction with city power are all included and tested regularly.

The data centre is built to Tier III standard, which includes:

  • redundant power, cooling and network;
  • redundant diesel generators and battery UPS;
  • multi-homed with Optus, Telstra and PIPE;

  • N+1 cooling.

The only exception to complete Tier III is the lack of raised flooring, as the design for cooling in the data centre was improved by having solid flooring.

The facility features multiple redundant connections to peering partners, ensuring multiple routes are always available. The network hardware is configured appropriately for 24 x 7 x 365 operation.
