We provide secure and cost-effective website and email hosting for your personal or business domain. You can purchase a new domain name through us or transfer your current domain and we'll manage all your online network services for you. Most of our clients use WordPress as their web solution of choice, which we fully support with automatic updates and free help and advice for simple problems. We specialize in using the latest Ubuntu Server Linux OS on our origin web servers with Nginx and PHP7+ for fast efficient web hosting, and Postfix/Dovecot for our email services along with SpamProbe to provide personalized spam filtering per mailbox. All our web and email services are secured with SSL certificates and file uploads use SFTP/SSH. We can provision hosting from multiple locations around the world but our main servers are located in secure Sydney data centers with multiple gigabit IP transit and peering links and hosted on high-grade DELL hardware with mirrored local and offsite storage drives.
Cloudflare is a global content delivery network (CDN) that increases the performance and security of every website on its network, protecting from a broad range of threats and attacks. Over 10,000,000 websites run on the Cloudflare network - ranging from individual blogs to e-commerce sites to the websites of Fortune 500 companies to national governments. Cloudflare powers almost a trillion monthly page views - more than Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, Zynga, AOL, Apple, Bing, eBay, PayPal and Instagram combined - and over 25% of the Internet's population regularly passes through our network.
WordPress is an online website creation tool. It is the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) in existence today and powers over 29% of all the websites on the Internet. Yes - more than one in four websites that you visit are likely powered by WordPress. All our customer websites come with WordPress pre-installed ready to start editing your content and layout. It is auto updated once a week (including plugins and themes) so you can rest assured your WordPress site will not get out of date and become a target for hackers over the long term.
Elementor is a page layout building plugin that replaces the basic WordPress editor with a live frontend editor, so you can create complex layouts visually, and design your website live, without having to switch between the editor and the preview mode. The page builder enables you to reach a top-notch quality of design without needing to use code or CSS, and without relying on developers for help. The user interface is extremely friendly, so it only takes a few minutes to get the hang of it. This means, for example, that when you drag and drop widgets, it is done instantly, without any lag time at all.
Nextcloud is a multi-purpose online storage system. All clients get 500MB of free storage space at renta.cloud so they can synchronize their Addressbook and Calendar, share moderately sized files and take advantage of these cloud based features...

Our servers are located in secure Sydney data centers but we can provide hosting services at 15 other locations around the world if required. Our origin web servers are based on finely tuned Ubuntu, Nginx, MariaDB and PHP systems that drive our two main Web applications, WordPress and Nextcloud. For mail services, we rely on Postfix for SMTP and Dovecot for IMAP mailboxes along with SpamProbe to manage personalized spam filtering. We do not provide POP email services because it does not work with our server-side spam filtering system and, in general, does not play well with shared mailboxes from multiple devices. Emails are secured with SPF, DKIM and DMARC headers which along with DNSSEC (secure DNS) helps to ensure messages are reliably delivered.
KDE Plasma is the default desktop interface for the entire KDE framework and application software stack. It includes an application launcher, or start menu, the desktop and the desktop panel and a large range of desktop widgets. However Plasma is more than just this familiar collection of utilities, it is a common framework for creating integrated interfaces. It is flexible enough to provide interfaces for mobile devices, media centers, and desktop computers; to support the traditional desktop metaphor as well as well as designs that haven't yet been imagined. We encourage the use of free and open source Linux desktop systems such as Kubuntu and KDE Neon along with other applications including Firefox for web browsing and Thunderbird for IMAP email.

Although we focus primarily on Linux desktop users, our services will work with any operating system and we will do our best to help you regardless of what computer system your are using.
All shared Personal and Business hosting plans include unmetered bandwidth for normal web and mail traffic but abusive traffic trends will get our attention and may lead to suspended services.
We do not provide incremental long-term backups, instead, our servers are mirrored via Rsync every night to offsite out-of-AU servers in Singapore and the US. All files can be restored from the previous day upon request. Long-term snapshot backups are the responsibility of the client, however, we are more than happy to help facilitate your backup procedure via SFTP, Rsync or even NFS if you have a static IP. Just submit a support ticket and we will provide specific instructions for your particular situation.
Default monthly and annual prices are in AUD (Australian dollars) and will include a 10% GST tax for Australian citizens. USD pricing is available in the shopping cart. If you have any billing or account issues then feel free to submit a billing ticket so we can assist you.
