Executive Brief

OntheNet was established at the Bond University Research Park in January 1995, becoming the first Internet Service Provider on the Gold Coast. The privately owned Australian business is satisfying the needs of the largest organisations and the most technically demanding clients in the region. OntheNet is the most experienced, most qualified local Internet Service Provider that assists businesses to define their Internet connection strategies. The company has grown to now offer a broad range of Internet Access and Internet Presence services.

Services & Technical Aspects

The range of services currently include:

Connectivity Services, such as Broadband ADSL, Fibre as well as ISDN, dialup modem and permanent modem.
Hosting Services, including domain, mail and web hosting as well as colocation.
Consultancy Services, such as Mail Server configuration, Security Audits and Firewall Solutions.
There is a large ongoing investment in the highest standard hardware and networking components implemented by OntheNet. For example, there are multiple connections to some of the largest Australian Internet backbones of (AAPT), Telstra and others as well as peering points such as PIPE networks. This level of performance and redundancy is simply not offered by any other local (or national) Internet Service Provider on the Gold Coast.

OntheNet is the first Queensland-based company to install Broadband ADSL Infrastructure into telephone exchanges. This infrastructure allows OntheNet substantial control and management of the broadband services, and therefore provides greater speed and reliability to its customers.

On the hardware side there are powerful Intel based servers and CISCO hardware all contributing to a network that provides the best possible performance.

With equal importance, OntheNet have planned and catered for:

Hardware redundancy - spare routers and servers are readily available.
Nightly data backup - to high capacity tape devices.
Power outages - via several UPS (battery powered Uninterruptible Power Supplies) and our own generators.
Security systems - to keep your data private,
Stability - e.g., separate dual air conditioning systems to our data centre , 24*7 monitoring systems to pager, etc.
These technical aspects combine to ensure the company's customers have consistent and reliable connectivity to the Internet. The contribution required here should not be underestimated as OntheNet's role reflects upon the corporate image of its clients in any and all electronic communications they might have.

OntheNet treat this responsibility very seriously.

Hosting Services

OntheNet provides "a-la-carte" pricing so you only pay for what you need. The Domain and Web Hosting Order Forms include all pricing details for each product and are available here.

VStrata Virtual Private Servers

OntheNet now offer VStrata Virtual Private Servers. This product fills the gap between Shared Web Hosting (see above) and Co-location of customers servers in our Data Centre (see below). Leveraging the latest cloud computing software and enterprise hardware VStrata will allow many more business customers to centralise and share information without the huge upfront capital cost previously required

Data Centre / Co-Location Hosting Services

Does your highly important server hardware need a more appropriate environment? Often, trying to establish that environment in-house proves very expensive to due to the need for reliable, high speed Internet links and redundancy. The OntheNet Data Centre already has all the redundancy mechanisms in place. ie. bandwidth & switching, power, air conditioning, fire protection, etc. The OntheNet network also caters well for sudden large bursts in bandwidth and rapid growth generally.
