A New Data Center in Australia!
After several weeks of negotiations and server setup procedures, we are finally ready to announce it – we have made a deal with a new data center facility, which is one of the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere and which is located in Sydney, Australia! The name of this facility is Global Switch. For those of you who have never heard it, it is part of a global data center network, which consists of data centers located all over the world. And to show you that the Global Switch data center in Sydney is really something special, hear this: the Australian Department of Defense has chosen it to house several of its servers! As of now, this data center is available to shared web hosting customers only and hosting accounts located there will have no price increase. The data center can be chosen from the Order form when a customer purchases his web hosting account. Free Reseller Hosting Program will have our Peer1 data center in the US set as the default sever facility for all his web hosting customers. To change this, and to choose the new Australian data center as the default one (or one of our European data centers – BlueSquare near London or Bahnhof in Stockholm), you will have to log into the Reseller Control Panel, navigate to the Store Settings section and choose the Miscellaneous tab. Once there, scroll down to the bottom of the page where you will see the Default Data Center menu, from where you can select the default data center for your store.
