There are thousands of hosts around who all claim to be the best. So how do you know we will do what you need?

Here are a few things that we think are important.

We have been around for a while.

We are not some start up that’s been going for 10 minutes and will take your money and disappear in the next 10 minutes. Our business is over 9 years old, here’s the link to our registration, so we have been around for a while and know what we are doing.

We have the best servers money can buy

Our servers have the latest software and we are always working on the security to make sure that they are secure.

We monitor our servers 24/7/365

We get a notification within a minute if there is ever a problem. Here is a link to the uptime stats of some of our servers. As you can see the uptime is exceptional. What that means is that our servers rarely break down meaning that your website is up and running more than 99.9% of the time.

Support – our clients love us.

It’s no accident that people say good things. We don’t work on the sausage machine principle. We are a medium size business that values the relationship with every customer and work really hard to keep everybody happy.

Price

We are not the cheapest that you will find but we offer great value for what we provide. We are not the low budget host who doesn’t care if the site is up or down or doesn’t answer your questions for days. We are here for you when you need us on the phone, email or however you want to contact us.

What is hosting and why do I need hosting?

When you have a web site designed you need to store that information somewhere so that people using the Internet can find it. We store that information for you on one of our web site servers. Think of us as your host for the Internet world and our servers as waiters dishing out your pages to anyone that types in your web site address. You need to have your web site hosted for other people to see it. This is known as website hosting.

Synchromedia offers a full range of website hosting services to meet the needs of your business. We use the latest technology to ensure your website is available quickly and reliably. We also provide 24/7 support which means help is only a phone call or an E-mail away.

Domain Names

What is a domain name?

Your domain name is your Internet address. It is the name that you type into your browser to bring up your web site and can be used after the @ symbol on your email address.

What is a domain registration?

Your domain name must be registered or licensed before you can put your web site address on the Internet.

This is done by checking the availability of your preferred domain name against a central registry. Your web site address can relate to your business name or product line.

*.com.au domain can only be purchased and renewed over 2 year periods.

FREE Domain Name Management

The single biggest cause of web sites going offline is the domain name expiring. Domain name management is a system used to ensure your domain registration is kept up to date. It allows your domain registration to be renewed on an automatic basis. If you register your domain name with SMG, we will email and call you when your domain needs to be renewed so it never unknowningly expires.

This means you protect your business from someone else stealing your domain name if you have let your domain registration run out.

This is a free service (normal registration rates apply for renewal of your domain name).

Beware Of Domain Name Registration Scams

If you have your domain name registered by Synchromedia Group and you have received a phone call, email or letter from a different company advising that it needs to be renewed, it might be a scam. Find out more here or call us on 07 3341 7224.
