VPS add-ons

Additional IP Addresses

Additional IP addresses are available for a cost of $10 per month, per additional IP.

If you require an extra IP address, you will need to provide a written explanation of its purpose. This could be for adding another SSL, management portal, or custom name server. There is a maximum of 16 IPs per VPS.

Server Hardening

Server hardening is designed to save you time and resources. Netregistry's expert security team will optimise your environment and make a series of modifications to your operating system and control panel installation to enhance the reliability of your server.

Netregistry also performs many other security tweaks to your server. All unnecessary services are disabled, SSH is hardened and kernel variables are modified for additional security.

We can quickly lock down your server and make sure you're getting the best performance possible.

Load Balancing

Load balancing squeezes more performance from configurations of two or more web servers, especially those at risk of traffic spikes like large eCommerce websites, social media networks, and ad serving platforms.

Netregistry employs F5 Big IP load traffic managers for delivering high availability, improved performance, application security and access control. This technology disperses traffic evenly across your servers to prevent one from being overloaded to the point of failure. If one server does fail, traffic is automatically and instantaneously diverted to the remaining servers.
