Any recommendations on cloud hosted servers?
I intend to setup a dedicated cloud hosted business server. Who are the best hosting company's, based on value for money and operating performance in Australia. The sever will host software, website, emails and general business documentation.
I would recommend MS Azure. Pretty easy to understand. They have competent cost plans too. For email solutions you can consider sendgrid if the email volume is high and integration with Azure is easy too. Office 365 can help you with the business documentation (SharePoint), skype for business
2 TOP Players in Cloud hosted is Amazon AWS & MS Azure.
Select any one of them and they will provide you complete solution.
If you need some assistance, i can meet and share more details.
Hi Justin, you can check and try iiNet Business Cloud. Value Hosting Australia is okay, too. They're both based in Australia.
Hi. Why not try MS Azure. Various flexible pricing models and plenty of redundancy should you need it. I have only one connection with Azure; I use it to host databases.
I recommend valuehosting.com.au based and hosted in Australia. We have hosted everything on their platform for over 10 years.
Have you tried OnlyDomains.com? Based in NZ.
I love their service for International domains in particular. I would use NameCheap for North American domains mainly, but for the internationally domains, OnlyDomains is quite good.
I would also suggest the use of some free cloud services such as:
1. Trello - to hold documents
2. Slack - collaboration tool which removes EMAIL overload
3. GoSpaces or SquareSpace - to build the website
4. OnlyDomains or NameCheap - domain registry and DNS settings
You are better off getting ONE great thing from each company's main focuses, than an all-in-one solution for each task or item.
1. You diversify your dependency on technology services.
2. You learn better tools.
3. You learn to integrate.
4. You use the best features from great companies.
