Domain Name Handling:
Netvantage can take care of all your domain registrations at very competative prices. Go here to register your domain now. You can also have more than one domain name resolving at the same site. For example, you can park yourname.net to yourname.com.
SiteBuilder is a next generation, browser-based application for creating and editing your own website which can be easily added to your hosting plan. More information here.
We give a very generous amount of space which is substantially more than what
most web hosting companies provide. One MB of disk space can hold several hundred
text pages or images. Most sites use less than one MB of disk space.
located in Australia:
Our servers are located in Australia for the quickest response times and to
avoid the USA-Australia bottlneck. Why would you want all your email and web
traffic going via the US? Our network is only two network hops to big providers
such as Telstra Bigpond. Brisbane is also a major jumping off point for Australian
data to the US.
Our datacentre network has been designed to keep
working. It offers full network redundancy which means
in the unlikely even of a failure, the network can quickly
be re-routed to maintain services. Network components are
housed in a stable and secure environment in Brisbane Data
Centres. The network is monitored 24x7, by an experienced
team of systems engineers.
Data Services for our customers are provided using Lucent Digital Terminal Servers with Cisco WAN and Border Routers, interconnected with 155MB ATM and 45MB HSSI circuits provided by Telstra Wholesale, AsiaNetcom Telstra Clear, Southern Cross and Pan-Am Sat backbones.

This is the amount of network traffic related to your domain. A large number
of sites have less than 1000MB of traffic per month, but popular sites could
use three or four times that. Please refer to our policies for limitation
on certain file protocols.
Our e-mail addresses are very flexible. You can set them up as POP or IMAP
boxes which store mail, e-mail aliases which redirect mail to another box,
or as autoresponders. It would be accessed by a 3rd party email program like
Outlook, or Eudora. This gives you a private secure storage location for
anyone sending email to the pop box you are using. These can be setup through
your mail manager.

make the best use of your options via the Plesk control panel. Plesk is one of the most robust and userfiendl control panels on the market. By the click of a mouse, you can administer

statistics program. This is a very powerful tool for tracking vistiors to your
site. It will tell you how long they were there, what pages they visited and
the order they were visited in. It will even tell where they came from and
what browser was being used. Each day you'll receive a analysis of your web
If you prefer to use your own statistic analysis program or want to know exactly
what is going on with your website, access to your raw logs is very important.
In order to perform secure transactions on the web using https://yourdomain.com
you need a hosting company that will support ssl. We use Apache-SSL on all
of our servers so you can use your secure certificate to secure your site.
SSI or Server side includes, allow the server to parse special page commands.
As example if you had a footer you wanted on all your pages that may change
from time to time, you can create a text file with the desired footer and place
it in your domain. On each page you put a simple include to read that file
and place it at the bottom of the desired pages.
Not only do we provide you with PHP support, but the majority of our system
tools and design projects are done by our staff in PHP. PHP is compiled as
a module with MySQL, PostgreSQL, gdbm, gd, XSLT, XML, zlib, yddx, tokenizer, shmop, pcre, openssl, imap, domxml, calendar, bcmath, and apache2filter support among others. PHP versions change from time to time so please ask us for the current supported versions.
MySQL is our GNU database of choice. We develop all of our own products with
MySQL. We encourage all mSQL and postgresQL users to migrate to MySQL. MySQL versions change from time to time so please ask us for the current supported versions.

a password. This is disabled by default.

the files in your web site. You are able to create, delete, and move your
files. You can also upload files from your local PC to the server in File
Manager. Plus, you can edit the HTML in any of your files from this option.
Everything you need to manage your site can be found in this feature.

Manage all your email accounts through this simple to use mail manger. It allows
you to setup, maintain, redirect or modify any of your email accounts.
You can easily create a autoresponder with the mail manager provided with your
domain, its a simple file with information you want automatically sent to people
who email a designated email address at your domain. When email is sent to
your domain with the same name as one of your autoresponders , the autoresponder
file is automatically returned to the sender of the email.
Using the mail manager provided with your account, you will be able to redirect
email aliases to other pop box locations of your choice. An alias is email@example.com,
Example firstname.lastname@example.org could be redirected to email@example.com your isp account
for viewing. You will also be able to provide friends similar aliases at your
domain and point it to their isp.
Unlike many systems, we have designed our network using our trade marked PlusMail
system to automatically capture anyname that may be sent to your domain name.
This means as long as the @yourdomain.com is proper even typos in the user
name will still be captured and not refused. We also provide the ability to
turn this feature off.
Mailing lists allow you to send e-mail to a large number of contacts in a very
efficient manner. You can manage the mailing list through the control panel.
Let your email users login and maintain their own mail services. Minimise your time taken in administration.

Real Audio Ready:
We do not have a real audio/video server. However, we do support real audio/video streaming for no extra charge.When Real Audio/Video first came out, it required an audio/video server to be installed on the web server. This was because Real Audio/Video wanted to charge for each "stream'" or visitor. But soon people started writing competitive audio/video streaming technology that didn't require a special server. So, to compete, Real Audio/Video now does not require a server, and you can even use their free tools to create streaming audio over the Internet.
Real Video Ready:
We support Video streaming with the Real Video Mime type as explained above.

"After several years experience with 2 of Australias largest hosting providers, we decided to move over to a US based provider who guaranteed 100% uptime. We soon learned that they were just as unreliable. Our business cannot afford to be off-line for several hours, especially first thing on a Monday morning. Lesson learned : Beware of glossy websites promising instant tech-support. We've been with Netvantage now for more than 3 years and have never had a single episode of down-time. Tech support have always solved any issue within the hour no matter what time of day or night. I highly reccommend Netvantage as a truly Australian-based web and e-mail hosting provider."
