VPS Australia FAQ
Our team of technical experts provides fast and efficient 24/7 ticketing support to all hosting
If you purchase a VPS and opt for Management, you'll receive priority support.
It's so thorough, reliable and helpful that it's trusted by everyone from tech novices to IT professionals across Australia. We're confident it will exceed your expectations too.
We can have your Australian VPS set up in one business day but if you need it sooner, just let us know and we'll do
our best to speed things up.
If you opt for Management, we then configure and harden the system. Hardening is all about using tools and techniques to help make your service secure. Sound confusing? Take where you live, for example. The process of hardening can be compared to locking your home's doors and windows. Hardening also prevents resources from being wasted or consumed by unnecessary tasks.
System hardening doesn't end there though; it's an ongoing process.
If you get Management, software installation, backups and web site migration (moving your cPanel web site from another provider to our service in Australia) are included too.
Server Management can be complicated and time consuming, especially if you're a tech novice. Zen
Hosting's Management is
much more comprehensive than you'll find elsewhere.
Our qualified experts start by securing your system in Australia, then we proactively monitor its performance and health (this includes but is not limited to CPU usage and load), provide extensive support for system administration and technical issues, and perform software upgrades as necessary. We can also set up and take backups.
When choosing a managed provider, keep in mind that not all hosts offer the same set of skills, practices and service. Zen Hosting's Management is optional and trusted by everyone from tech novices to IT professionals across Australia. Without Management, you're responsible for all the tasks that keep your system secure and running.
Apart from Management, there is a range of high-performance software to choose from for your Australian
cPanel WHM It’s easy to manage web site files, MySQL databases, email accounts and more with online control panel cPanel, while WHM lets you administer cPanel including the creation and suspension of cPanel accounts. A cPanel WHM installation is all part of our Managed service in Australia.
DirectAdmin cPanel recently changed their pricing structure to reflect the number of cPanel accounts on a VPS or Dedicated Server. A lot of people looked for an alternative and chose the DirectAdmin platform which, like cPanel, makes the administration of websites easier. You can opt to use cPanel on your system or DirectAdmin to keep costs down. We work with both. If you only have a handful of web sites, the DirectAdmin platform is a viable option.
CloudLinux CloudLinux lets you take control of resources and boosts performance by ensuring resource usage spikes don’t cause a system crash. It also enhances security and has a PHP version selector. We can install and configure CloudLinux on Managed Servers in Australia.
LiteSpeed Replace Apache with LiteSpeed for faster page load times and WordPress acceleration.
Softaculous or Installatron These auto software installers let you install software on your dedicated service in Australia at just the click of a button.
KernelCare You’ll want the latest kernel and security updates to help avoid system issues. KernelCare automatically applies these and there’s no need to reboot, which means no downtime.
Imunify 360 Imunify 360 is a strong defence against system attacks. It also makes it really easy to find threats and get rid of malware and viruses.
JetBackup This leading backup solution is just what you need for everything from a full cPanel account restore, file/folder restore, database restore and disaster recovery to backing up to multiple destinations. Our tech experts can set it up on VPS in Australia under Management.
We have a nifty system for our servers that lets us keep an eye on everything from the
availability of a
critical web site to server health.
Do you have special monitoring requirements for your web site? Just let us know for more information.
We use the KVM (kernel-based virtual machine) virtualisation, which offers performance and reliability that is second to none.
Each VPS is fully isolated with its own resources, so if another VPS on the server is ever under heavy load, it won't affect yours. Being private from others also means it’s secure.
The environment can run either Linux or the Windows stack of software. If you choose the latter, you'll need to bring your own Windows licence.
The VPS console in Zen Hosting’s Client Area allows remote access to a VPS even when it’s inaccessible.
From here, you can perform reboots, shut-downs and access the HTML console. Or if you opt for a Managed VPS, our adept professionals will do it for you and more.
It’s hard to compare virtual cores at different providers unless you know the hardware platform.
We use Supermicro servers, which have a ton of processing power. If you’d like more information, just drop us a line.
What is offered as part of Management varies from provider to provider.
For example, some hosts won't assist you if there is an issue with a .htaccess file because they don't consider it to be part of server maintenance.
An indication of the type of support your new hosting provider will provide may be how promptly and thoroughly they address your sales questions. So what are you waiting for? Put us to the test and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
Unlike many hosting companies, Zen Hosting isn't owned by an overseas conglomerate. We’re a proudly Australian business and you can rest assured that we’ll continue to provide top-notch service and affordable services for years to come.
Also, our servers are in Australian datacentres on quality networks and we don't oversell them, so you won't experience any unnecessary slowdown.
And we’re extremely proactive, going above and beyond to help customers. If difficult technical issues arise, we can get to the bottom of them fast. You'll be amazed by the quality and speed of our support team, who are genuinely passionate about web hosting and customer service.
