Network Information:

Our hosting network utilises servers located in datacentres, in both New Zealand and the United States of America. Where a particular hosting plan is hosted, is dependent on which hosting plan it is.

All server networks utilise some of the most up to date server technologies available in the world. These servers are suitable for most types and sizes of websites, from high traffic database driven and e-commerce websites, through to simple one page brochure sites. All servers we use are stored in modern, air conditioned and secure data centres. There are multiple levels of security required to access the premises, and the servers are connected to a full UPS system with backup generators. Below are details of the two main datacentres that we use, and the hosting plans that are hosted on them.

New Zealand Located Website Hosting
Hosted at the Albany Datacentre in Auckland

Both our Corporate Hosting Plan and our Business Class Hosting Plan, are hosted on a large server network at the Maxnet Albany Datacentre, located in Auckland, New Zealand. This network consists of both Windows and Linux servers, and is currently made up of over 200 servers. The Maxnet data centre is a modern facility with full redundancy in connectivity, power, and cooling. Maxnet is a leading New Zealand ISP with a strong focus on mission-critical server infrastructure.

As the service is so critical to businesses, our providers have invested tens of thousands of dollars in the network ensuring not only maximum capacity, but also that everything on the linux server network is doubled up to provide redundancy. This means that in the event of a hardware failure, another system waiting idly can pick up service in seconds, reducing any potential interruption. This redundancy for web hosting is also planned to be added to the Windows servers in the future.

Our providers are constantly reviewing hardware and replacing outdated systems where necessary, as well as continuing to build on the hosting network to increase capacity and redundancy.

USA Based Website Hosting


Our Small, Medium, Large, Super, Extreme & VPS hosting plans are hosted in the One Wilshire Datacentre in Los Angeles, USA. This is a leading World-Class Datacentre, looked after by expert USA based cPanel™ server technicians, who have direct phisical access to the servers in the datacentre. This means that they do everything themselves – installs, monitoring, modifications, reboots. They have full control over the operations and only a fraction of web hosts can offer this peace of mind.


One Wilshire Datacentre - Los Angeles:

The Los Angeles datacentre facility, has multiple gigabit connections to upstream providers, to ensure solid network stability and capacity.

IP transit is from from 2 cisco 12008 GSR's which are connected via multiple gigabit fiber uplinks to the distribution switches (2 cisco 2948G-L3's). Each cabinet is prewired and connected to the main distribution cabinet so it's plug and play. Each cabinet has it's own switch, we prefer a layer 2 switch in each cabinet. All of our servers are hooked up to APC remote reboot ports in the event that they lockup for any reason.

The network has transit from Level 3 and ATT(Mzima), Savvis, and Global Crossing. That means that there are 4 Tier 1 bandwidth providers. This is a premium, exclusive network that gives all of our hosting clients on the USA network, a major advantage over other USA hosted servers, regardless of geographic regions. Very few hosting providers are able to provide this level of network connectivity and bandwidth providers.
