Hosting Option Reviews

Shared platform

A shared server holds multiple customers in a single environment. Each website hosted on the server is treated as a separate account. The resources (RAM, CPU and storage) on this server are therefore shared across all the accounts in the environment. All websites on this server also share a single IP address.

AWS platform

We utilise the Amazon Web Services platform for our hosting services, predominantly the EC2 service. AWS offers a 99.99% uptime guarantee:

AWS has the following ISO certifications: ISO/IEC 27001:2013, 27017:2015, 27018:2014, and ISO/IEC 9001:2015.

For more information please see:

All of your services are located in AWS’ Australia – Sydney zone unless otherwise required.

Server updates and patching TBST undertakes all updating and patching of the hosting environments under our management.
  • All hosting accounts are subject to daily and monthly backups.
  • Daily backups are kept for 7 days, and monthly backups are kept for 12 months.
  • The backup takes a copy of the website files and the database.
Disaster recovery (on shared platform hosting)

Documented disaster recovery plans are in place for TBST’s hosting infrastructure. A high-level description of these is below:

Standard disaster recovery procedure as follows:

  1. Evaluate scope of incident
  2. Restore most recent backup
  3. Reset access passwords (if security breach)
  4. Evaluate protocol for future prevention measures
Disaster recovery (dedicated performance hosting)

For sites that are maintained under enterprise or strategic support we recover from the pre-live environment.

For sites that are not maintained under enterprise or strategic, we default to standard procedure (outlined above)

For any malware related recovery, we also reset all access credentials to the entire server and individual sites, and then run a scan.
