100% Australian owned and operated web hosting company Serversaurus started its journey in 2005. Serversaurus donates 1% of its sales revenue to environmental causes, and in 2014 it became the nation’s first and only web host to be certified as a “B Corporation” for its progressive efforts in the areas of environment, people, and technology.
This company’s self-owned infrastructure, which is housed within Australia’s only Tier 4 & ISO 27001 certified data center, supports more than 10,000 unique visitors per second.
Hosting offerings are complemented by domain registration and transfer, a globally distributed DNS service, high-traffic ticketing solutions, CDN, and professional services. The Serversaurus website supports English.
Features and Ease of Use
Serversaurus offers three premium cPanel-based shared hosting plans – Dinobig, Dinobigger, and Dinobiggest – to meet personal and small business needs. Those requiring high-performance hosting for demanding web applications can pick from the provider’s three high-performance hosting plans (Performance, Turbo, and Supercharged). To complete the picture, Serversaurus also offers three reseller hosting plans and one managed cloud server plan.
Some notable features of the hosting plans are:
- Hosting for multiple websites
- 2 GB to 10 GB disk space
- 100 GB to 1000 GB traffic
- cPanel control panel
- PHP selector
- Free migration
- Premium DNS
- SSH access
- DDoS protection
- Free SSL certificates
- Data backups every four hours with immediate access and recovery
The LiteSpeed Web Server assures higher scalability, enhanced security, and improved performance. Performance is further improved by this provider’s use of SSD storage rather than the traditional, slower HDD storage. RAID 10 replicated data storage helps protect you against data loss.
Reseller, business, and cloud clients receive a 99.9% uptime guarantee and the opportunity to contribute to environmental sustainability. The entire infrastructure is made carbon neutral, and 1% of sales revenues are donated to environmental causes.
Pricing and Support
At more than three times the global industry average, this provider’s shared hosting plans are pricey. You can pay for them by PayPal, Bitcoin, bank transfer, and credit cards on monthly, semi-annual, annual, biennial, and triennial billing cycles. The 30-day money-back guarantee should make you feel better about making a multi-year commitment, and you have to submit a support ticket to request a refund. Although there are no free trials, you might be able to negotiate a nominal rate to test the services.
Those seeking self-help can head to the company’s blog or knowledge base, the latter of which includes several informative articles and tutorial-style posts. If you need to contact the company, you can do so via telephone, support ticket, or email. I’m pleased to say that my inquiry email was answered within a day:
