A city-by-city view
Our servers and storage
Across our shared hosting servers and VPS nodes, we prefer Dell enterprise hardware. Dell have served us and our client-base well in years past, leaving us with a strong working relationship.
Our fleet is 100% SSD-powered – we utilise Intel DC SSDs, and have all drives operating in RAID10 arrays. Some nodes utilise directly-connected drives, while others utilise SSD-backed SANs.
Backups of our shared hosting servers and VPS nodes are stored within Australia, mostly within Equinix’s enterprise-grade facilities. On request, backups can be stored on your own platforms (SFTP, etc) or on cloud platforms (AWS, Azure, etc).
Our Australian network operates atop AS132680, a proven and fully redundant Brocade-powered network. All hardware is owned and operated by Ink Systems Pty Ltd.
Our take on security
The online world’s an inherently dangerous place – we’ve taken every precaution possible to ensure that our network is as secure and robust as possible.
With DDoS protection provided by F5 Networks, rigorous internal and external network monitoring running 24/7 alongside a range of security tools, we’ve got your online presence covered. Our shared hosting platform runs KernelCare, CloudLinux, CageFS, CSF, CXS and ModSecurity as standard. Our VPS nodes run KernelCare and a hardened version of KVM.
Our hardware is situated in leading data centres worldwide, with the majority of our equipment in Equinix facilities in Sydney, Australia. With around-the-clock security staff, biometric security, man traps and rigorous security policies, your data is safe. Hardware is located in locked racks within secure private suites to ensure maximum security.
Payments are processed securely through our credit card merchant provider eWAY; in the unlikely event that they’re offline, our fallback provider is Stripe. You also have the option to securely pay via PayPal. All of our credit card payment providers are PCI DSS compliant.
