CyberGuru introduces new Brisbane-based website hosting plans

Image of text reading "www."

Over the past few months, CyberGuru has been reviewing the website hosting plans we offer to continue to provide the highest quality you have come to expect.

We have been fortunate to have come across an award-winning website hosting company based in Brisbane who are keen to support us and our clients. We have trialled the service and have been very happy with them.

This company provides mission-critical military grade Australian cloud hosting and has an impressive client list including Telstra, IBM and Virgin Australia. The data centres are located in highly secure data centres are hosted in the Brisbane Airport and Woolloongabba, and are which are monitored 24x7x365. In addition, responsive and timely support available should any incidents occur.

We have seen the performance, availability and reliability of this on the websites trialled on their data centres. We are looking to transition across our clients to the new data centre and associated website hosting services over the next twelve months (before the renewal period), which will still remain managed and supported by CyberGuru with the assistance of this company.

As a result, our website hosting plans are being adjusted to accommodate these changes. Please review the new Website hosting packages document which contains the plans and pricing available.

The benefits of this change are significant including having more affordable plans, fewer periods of downtime and improved response time resulting in your website being highly available and faster to load. While some of the specifications have been reduced to provide an improved service offering, this will not affect your website based on its current capacity.

You should not experience only minimal downtime or loss of information as a result, and this change will be at no cost to you. We will keep you informed of the process, prior to and once you have been migrated, to ensure all continues to operate as you would expect it to.

If you have any questions, or feedback about this change, please contact us.

National Broadband Network

Starting in less than a months’ time, existing telephone and internet services will be disconnected in parts of Brisbane Northern suburbs where the National Broadband Network (nbn) is being installed.

For ease of reference, we have included the dates of the proposed disconnections as noted by Finder.com.au for clients in our local area:

As noted in previous CyberGuru Blog articles, it is important to switch your landline phone and internet services to the nbn before existing networks are switched off.

CyberGuru has developed a guide, “Making the switch to the nbn” which provides prompting questions when getting ready for the new service in your home or office.

If you are wondering when you will receive the nbn in your area, the three-year construction plan was updated late December with this information. From the nbn website, you can check when it will be available in your area.

If CyberGuru can assist in anyway in making the switch to the nbn, please contact us.
