Platypus Websites Announcements

Welcome to Platypus Media. We have 500 clients hosted on Brisbane and Sydney servers and use this website on a Melbourne server to announce any news about Sydney and Brisbane servers.


We successfully moved our Linux hosting to TPP Wholesale. The migration took longer than expected but all is settled now.

There may have been some emails that went to the old hosts during the change of nameservers. These can still be retrieved in cpanel > file manager.

We emailed everybody the these should be changed at their registrar, but of course some did not read their emails !
