Websites are built using many types of programming codes, which is inserted into pages along with images, databases, scripts and more. After your website is finished, it needs to be accessible for everyone to see it. This is where Web Hosting comes in.
Web Hosting is space on a server located in our one of our datacentres, which are connected to every other datacentre in the world. The web server’s job is to provide your website files to anyone who requests them – usually using a internet browser program, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome.
The web server gets a request and then sends the website to the person who requested it. It does this 24/7, meaning that you get a degree of availability and uptime that other computers are not able to provide. This is one of the reasons why it is not economical or practical to use a home computer for website hosting.
Our infrastructure uses a principle called cloud computing for greater performance and reliability. The machines are linked together in a way that distributes memory and resources, meaning that even if one of them malfunctions or goes offline temporarily, its work continues uninterrupted, meaning your services remain online.
One major advantage of our Web Hosting solutions is the extensive usage of SSD memory in our server arrays. SSD, or Solid State Drives, is the latest-generation type of computer memory. Instead of storing information on a rotating disk (like older-model hard drives), this memory is in a drive that stores information magnetically in a non-spinning model. Because there is no laser that searches for the information on the disk, SSD memory loads up to 300% faster than traditional hard disks.

Yes. If your website has the potential to grow but doesn’t yet have large amounts of traffic and files, it would be better to start with one of our smaller hosting plans and upgrade it only as more resources become necessary.

Yes. We keep backups for internal reasons, however, we recommend to clients to keep their own backups. It is not feasible to offer assurance of data backup for Web Hosting and advise that you should do this independently and ensure that your hosting account’s content – site files, scripts and applications – are all backed up correctly.
We urge all our customers to keep regular backups. If your site is static or does not see much traffic, then these can happen weekly, but for more traffic-heavy sites that may be updated often, daily backups are recommended. Our hosting management system, cPanel, has a simple backup feature that you can use to download a complete copy of your site, databases and any other contents of your hosting account. Please see this article for a detailed set of instructions on how you can perform these backups independently.
If you are interested in automating your backups, we recommend this article, which explains in detail how to do it.
Every country has its own domain extension, which is an important part of your full web address. The Indian country extension is .au, and .com.au is the most popular option for businesses.
Here are the Indian domain names you can choose:
.com.au – This is the classic option for businesses. It is also the default that many people type in their browsers, so it’s a good idea to reserve it for your business’s address.
.net.au – A common choice for business websites or technology firms. It’s also a good option if the .com.au version is taken.
.org.au – Meant for non-profit charities and organisations.
.asn.au – Open for political parties, trade unions, sporting clubs, charities, incorporated associations and non-profits.
.id.au – Meant for personal websites for Indian citizens and residents. They cannot be used for businesses.
Choosing a domain name is a key step to having a successful online presence. Domain names are also known as web addresses, and they represent your online business, project or blog just like your street address represents your physical location. The following tips will help you choose the right one.
Refer to your business
If your business is called aspiring-life of all Trades, then the name aspiring-life.com.au is a natural choice. If it’s not available, then you can try other variations like aspiringlife.com.au, aspiring_life.com.au variation. Just make sure you use some reference of your name, brand or idea.
Keep it short and sweet
The shorter your domain, the easier it is to remember. Abbreviations or half abbreviations like aspiring_life.com.au are very popular.
Choose a name that represents you or your products. Don’t register an address similar to a competing business or website with the same products or content.
Make it local
Choose a geographical extension that represents where your business is located. For example, .com.au is used for websites in India and .co.uk is used for websites in Britain. Each country has its own popular type.
Protect your brand
Register multiple domains and direct them all to your main site to protect your brand. If you have registered .com.au, registering .com as well will stop anyone from using your brand. Make sure your address looks professional and don’t use a bunch of numbers, hyphens and slang words. Remember, this will be part of your email addresses, so you want to look good.
Can’t decide among your options?
There are no limits to how many domains you can register. Many business will register multiple versions and have them all redirect to one website or park them for future projects.
After you have registered your web address you can connect it to your website or start using it to create email addresses. The options are endless.
