Data centre information and uptime

We guarantee 99% server uptime. Our websites are hosted on secure New Zealand based servers, with all hardware within rooms built with concrete floors, walls, and ceilings.  Servers are constantly monitored, and have 24/7 on-call System Engineers.

Security

The servers our websites are hosted on are accessed by swipe card only, have 24/7 on-site security, and has CCTV monitoring. The servers are maintained to ensure they stay up to date with security threats.

Websites can be hosted with secure socket layer (SSL) as an additional security extra – SSL encrypts the path between the browser and web server. This will help ensure customer information (credit card information, names, addresses, and other personal information) will remain secure. This requires an additional monthly cost,

All reasonable precautions are taken to prevent websites we host from being hacked. Website files are frequently updated with security patches, and databases are backed up and encrypted.
