Fast, reliable, affordable, and local website hosting and email hosting
The essential elements for doing business online are email and a website and both require some type of hosting. The type of hosting you choose can affect things such as how well your site ranks in Google, your website security (from hackers), how long your website takes to load (over 5 seconds and it’s likely you’ll lose the click through), and even data capacity (how much content you can put upon your website).
Shared server, VPS hosting, Dedicated Server Hosting, Cloud Hosting, and Managed Hosting are just some of the daunting terminology you will come across when searching for web hosting. We’re here to make things easier for you, not more complicated.

It’s got everything you’ll need and nothing you won’t!
What exactly is web hosting (website hosting)?
All websites contain files to display the content in a web browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox etc.). These ‘files’ must be stored somewhere that can be accessed by anyone using the internet, no matter where they are. This is what website ‘hosting’ is.
Web hosting is done on a server (another computer) and this is where all the files that make up your website, are stored. The server can be in a different country to where you live, although this can hinder your website when it comes to showing up in Google. A server is similar to a personal laptop or computer, in that it is made up of similar elements; memory, CPU, and an operating system. The difference is that a server is much more powerful and secure.
Email also contains files that need to be stored on a server. Many free services such as Gmail and Hotmail include hosting, but if you want to use your own URL (website address) as your email address (e.g. email@example.com) then you’ll need hosting for your email as well as your website.
We can provide affordable local email hosting and web hosting that’s perfect for any type of business in Brisbane or on the Gold Coast.
