VPS

With recent advances in software and hardware in the field of virtualisation, it has become common to use the Virtual Private Server (VPS) as a solution to server infrastructure requirements.

In simple terms a VPS is simply an instance of a server, running its own operating system on virtualised hardware. A typical setup has several VPS servers running on a 'host' server - the physical computer. It offers all the advantages of a full, dedicated server, but with the cost benefits of a shared hosting environment.

  • Linux is available on all plans; Windows requires a plan with at least 15GB storage. Excess data usage is charged at $0.50 per Gigabyte (unless bandwidth pooling is used).
  • No contracts: pay in advance by the month with no setup fee.
  • Root/Administrator access provides full control of your server; install any software you like.
  • Check your server status, reboot, reinstall, change operating system, and more - all from our easy-to-use web control panel.
  • Each plan comes with 1 IP address and 1 free backup per week. Additional IP addresses or backups can be purchased as required.
  • Change your plan - or individually upgrade disk, memory, data limit - its all automated and occurs within minutes. A pro rata charge is made to facilitate mid-month changes.
  • Built-in rescue feature based on VNC lets you access your server even when it will not boot or you configure firewall to deny access.
Minimum Unit Monthly Cost
Memory 128MB AU$15.00 per GB
Disk Space 10GB AU$0.40 per GB
Data Transfer 10GB AU$0.10 per GB
IP Addresses 1 AU$3.95
Backups* VPS disk size** AU$0.10 per GB
WHM/cPanel server license $15.00

* Each VPS is backed up once a week at no charge

** Additional backups are priced in terms of the VPS disk size. For example, purchasing a second backup for a VPS with a 10GB disk would cost $1.00 per month ($0.10/GB x 10GB)

 

  • The Mammoth platform was built from the ground up to offer a reliable and cost-effective platform for virtualisation.
  • We have chosen Xen as our virtualization system due to its speed, configurability, and cost.
  • Dual processor Xeon servers with RAID-10 storage provide fantastic site performance.
  • Our servers are hosted in an enterprise datacentre on Kent Street in Sydney, Australia. Internet connectivity is provided by Soul, operators of Australia's largest independent carrier network.
  • Our current connection is 200mbit incoming (from the internet to our facility) and 200mbit outgoing (from our facility to the internet).
  • We use high quality commodity hardware, ensuring that all components are easy to replace and upgrade, and are readily available. We've focused on performance and uptime, spending countless hours running tests to find the best configurations for each aspect of the service.
  • Lower cost - A server setup that is equivalent in most ways to a dedicated server, for a fraction of the cost.
  • Complete control over the server - you get full root access and can manage every aspect of the operating system.
  • Ease of setup and provisioning (signup video) - a VPS can typically be spun-up on demand within minutes after your initial request. There's no waiting for hardware to get installed.
  • Ease of expansion - VPS means you can start small and scale up as required.
  • Improved availability -  by sharing the underlying hardware costs across a number of customers, we can provide fully redundant hardware that is matched by only the most expensive dedicated servers.
  • Ultimate flexibility - you're not subject to the typical limitations of a shared hosting service. (See Supported Applications)
  • Ease of operation - no more waiting for a technical support person to reboot your server. Virtualisation offers easy remote reboots. (Check out our mPanel Video).
