Good Vps For Australia

Dec 2, 2008

I'm interested in getting a VPS (nothing too much - probably at least 5-10GB space / 30GB bandwidth) for a forum I run based in Australia. My budget is probably around $40/month. BTW I'm after managed.

My main issue is that I would like it to be a decent speed for Australia (specifically Melbourne). Where should a datacenter be located for Australia?

VPS In New Zealand Or Australia

Jul 2, 2007

I have used before and was very happy with everything except bandwidth speed. If i ping the server, I get around 198 to 220ms response. VPS is hosted in USA, and I live in Auckland, New Zealand.

I am planning on starting my own personal business, which is going to be relatively small to start of with... I wanted to purchase a VPS to host my website as well as host few other websites for clients if required. I will be running typo3 content management system with mysql database. I wanted the response time to be better than

The companies I have explored in NZ are 3 times more expensive than VPSland. I wanted a server which has around 300mb ram or so. Would prefer Windows 2003, if not Linux.

Please recommend me which VPS provider I should go with? I suppose it should be based in Australia or New Zealand as the traffic will be national mostly. or even USA or UK or any other country which provides good response time for NZ visitors and has competitive prices?

My budget is around $20 - 30 US max

Dedicated Servers For Australia

Jul 8, 2008

I was wondering what people in Australia use with regards to Dedicated Server companies. Do you go local in Australia or are overseas companies just as good?

If local what do you guys use? If overseas, where do you get the fastest bandwidth to Australia, etc.

Hosting In Australia For American Domains

Dec 20, 2008

I've just purchased 6 domain names.

3 x .com
2 x .info
1 x .net

The sites will be viewed mostly by an American audience. I've already decided that the hosting package should be a VPS as this fits my budget.

My question is whether I should host these domains in the States or my location, in Australia? My concerns are:

- If I host in Australia, will the States experience a lag in site loading

- Prices in Australia seem to be cheaper

- If hosted in Australia will it have a negative effect on how the site is ranked on American search engines such as

Browser Timing Out/ftp Issues Asia Pacific/Australia/Oceania To US

Aug 11, 2008

I have a VPS located in LA, USA.

For over a week now I have had the following network issues:

- browser timing out (for me and visitors to my site)

- ftp connection issues

The server load is low so it's not server related.

Traceroute TO the server appears fine.

Traceroute FROM the server to users IP's appears to have issues over the SingTel/Optus network.

My webhost says it's an issue for SingTel/Optus.

SingTel/Optus Engineer say:
"Our testings point to a problem either within Cogent's network or on a peering link between Cogent and Singtel in LA.

I'd suggest that the owner of the domain (me!) approach his hosting provider and have them escalate to Cogent. We can't escalate to Cogent as we have no peering with them."

So I've been the meat in the sandwich for over a week with no sign of a fix.

My options appear to be to either move the VPS away from the webhost and host it locally (Australia) or to somehow wait for someone to step up and take responsiblity and get this resolved.

My heart says wait as it's not *my* responsibility but it's costing me financially and professionally.

Anyone else experiencing similiar/same issues from the Asia Pacific region to the US?

List Of Good Hosters With Good TELEPHONE Tech Support

May 6, 2008

I'd like to start an ongoing thread here listing the 'Good Hosters with Good TELEPHONE tech support'. In other words, out of the 1,000s of host companies, this may cut it down to less than a dozen.

( And for all you Hosters out there who really want your company to grow, and want to know how, - it's easy: just read here.)

Good telephone support is the #1 ultimate requirement, because:

-It's a lot faster and easier for both the user and the host company, because you can state and answer all questions and clarifications on the spot, you don't need to continually pass new emails with new questions and clarifications, back and forth for days on end, until the issue is solved. It saves tech time and user's time. And saves a lot of nerves.

- It's the best way to sort the good guys from the bad. A bad company isn't going to bother to answer the phone, - or will make you wait way too long, - because they are likely getting endless complaints. The good guys are always ready to answer the phones, with a friendly voice, - because they really WANT to please the customer.

- If a company can't be bothered to pick up the phone, we can't be bothered to even consider them. They're a joke, and so won't be listed here on this thread. (So, before adding or listing any Hosters here, please verfify that they do have Good, quick, friendly, telephone support,; ideally 24/7, but 9am to 10pm might be acceptable, if it was supplemented by some emergency contact.

- Hoster ALSO needs good EMAIL support (and preferably, Chat online, extended hour availability). (I spend a lot of time overseas). It sems all emails should get a non-automated response within about an hour, - and then support should jump on fixing any problem.

I only need support a few times a year. To answer some questions, or fix a problem, or do an install. That's lesss than 1 hour total, so any company paying maybe $18/hour tech support should be able to handle this. It IS reasonable to charge a custm for extended calls, beyond say, 90minutes a year, IF you don't count the 80%? Of times an issue is the Hoster;s fault of stmg gone wrong, and don't count the 'hold' times.

- Uptime
- site Speeds
- Monthly plans, no contract (Only a dishonest host will try to force you into a contract, where they can then ignore you.)
- Reasonable price. (? Maybe $12 to $18/month for a basic business site. We don't need massive bandwitdths, - we all know that's an overselling scam, and can't ever be delivered.)
- a good upgrade plan of bigger options. Maybe even VPS.
- Dedicated IP, and availbility of SSL
-PHP 5, mysql, phpMyAdmin, etc
- cPanel ( Some Hosts are using problematic panels, like Hsphere, which are slow to load, slow in operation, require many more clicks, have too many options, spread apart on many separate pages. Time is money, and this really slows down the ability of a small business to manage his own site in effective time. For example, one WHT user wrote somewhere: "I don't feel that HSphere's interface is nice at all, although I have worked with cPanel and DA all my life... I just found it to include un-necessary features or split features up in to different hard to find pages, such as backups - mysql backups you had to find on a completely different page than file backups, and then there were options to have it in the home directory or server-end backup, in which then you had to wait a good 10 minutes before it was ready. cPanel, just hit backup and hit download and instantly it does everything you need...".

I have used several hosters. Currently on and Godad, which have phone support, and mediocre service.

My LIST So Far:
- Liquidweb: a very impressive company with good, 24 hour support. But to get dedicated IP, you need to go with their $25/month plan. Yikes!
- A very small company. My call was returned, and the owner chatted with me for an hour on the phone! Plans have small bandwidth, but promises No overselling, and personalized attention. Extra $5 for dedi IP. He specializes in Small business sites, and small eCommerce sites. He has only 250 accounts, on 3 servers. He rents servers from the Equinox data center of Chicago. Seems exceptionaly honest.
- MegaHosters. Excellent phone support and WHT reviews. But company was taken over by another company, and so may well go downhill in future. Another problem: uses Hsphere.
- Steadfast. Has a good rep on WHT, and seems impressive. Tech answered the phone immediately, but they say they prefer emails. Sales phone has limited hours. Good price on $20 SSL. But, uses Hshhere.
- JodoHost 24 hour phone. But, uses Hsphere. An Indian company with office in Florida, and good rep. I like the idea of outsourcing phone support, if it makes it more available and affordable. But, the accent on the phone was very hard for me to understand, so maybe this might not work.....
- Hostgator. Yes, it's a big overseller, but seems to get good reviews/results anyway, and good phone support.
- ? ThePrimeHost ?? Mostly good WHT reviews; some dissenters. Site says 24hour phone, but when I called on several nights, no one ever answered...
- Can anyone add to this list? Please list only hosts that meet the above minimum requirements of phone support, etc. Especially useful is hosters you've tried.
- Avoid Arvixe. I had a horrid experience with them, here: [WHT forum]:/showthread.php?p=5097822#post5097822
- Avoid WebHostingBuzz. This company never returned my phone msessage inquiries.

Cpanel and Unix VPS, but may also require windows vps - so a company that offers both will be beneficial, but long term view to migrate over to Linux

Fatcow Any Good?

Aug 24, 2009

I was looking for a webhost with adwords credit, and cheap.

When I went to Bluehost and Hostgator, the more well-known sites they had $50 adwords credit each but couldn't get their price down to less than 58$ a year. With Fatcow seems to be $44 a year and also have $50 adwords credit.

Does somebody know their reliability? I was searching google and the host seems to be a new person in town and that might be a problem.

Preferably I was searching for $20 a year webplans but I can't seem to find one with adwords credit. I want to use the adwords to drive quick traffic to a new site. I am not sure should I go for the adwords credit+ hosting or hosting seperate + adwords seperate. The keywords I'm gonna use only have 1,000-10,000 max visitors a month. If the credit is only valid for a limited time than I'd maybe better off with a both seperate.

Good Resources For EC2

Jun 25, 2009

After speaking to a colleague about some major benefits of EC2 for on-demand hosting I've been very interested in learning more.

I've spent the past 2 evenings trolling through Amazon Doc's and blog posts and have a fair assessment about how things work but I'm at a stopping point.

There doesn't seem to be a dedicated EC2 area here on Sitepoint and the Amazon EC2 forums seem geared more towards 'advanced' users.

Are there any reliable communities that are more for the beginner?

I've got a LAMP webserver Instance running on EC2 but I'm very unclear about how to login and begin adding files and managing the data. I'm sure it's pretty simple but the documentation pretty much loses me when they start discussing Security Groups and public/private keys.

I'm not much of a server admin but have grown pretty comfortable on our FC4 dedicated boxes that we currently host on.
