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 problems

Linux Server Sydney

Unfortunately this server was down Friday 26 May am due to an attack on one website

Security:

ModSecurity is installed by default on all hosting accounts. This can be disabled in cPanel Security. This blocks anyone using invalid user/password several times.
DKIM is installed by default on all hosting accounts. This can be disabled in cPanel Emails Authentication. This blocks any incoming emails not send from who they say they are.
SPF also under Authentication: This stops others from using your email address on spam.

Speed:

Use http://tools.pingdom.com/ to test speed before and after but make both tests as close in time as possible as the time of day or night as well as where the test is from, make a difference to loading speeds.

We also recommend the www.cloudflare.com cache for all sites with a high volume traffic.

Backups
Please use cpanel Backup Wizard.


Brisbane Windows server Platypus: 
Maintenance 5pm to 10pm 26 May 2017 – Now on upgraded hardware.
