Great support but unreliable hosting.

We have web and email hosting services with Net Virtue. Their support is excellent, and are always responsive. Their email servers seem to have a lot of reliability issues since their upgrade/migration to new ones 2 years ago. The...Read More migration itself, resulted in a lot of missing and duplicate emails, and these days, I seem to be contacting support quite often regarding emails that can't be sent to us because of disk allocation or our mailboxes being "full". In short, they are okay, but definitely look elsewhere for better reliability.Less

Fastest Hosting I have used.

I saw an ad for Net Virtue on facebook and decided to take them up on their free trial of the nvX hosting. Sign up process was easy and migrated my site over from VentraIP.

I noticed a huge drop in TTFB and significant performa...Read Morence difference on my wordpress site. The nvX plans are more expensive but the high SLA and hourly backups make it worth it for my business.

Worth a look at

Anything less than 4 stars is baloney

Net Virtue has been nothing but awesome in the last 6 years I have used them. With 3 websites and about 3 times as many products (ranging from SSLs to email hosting and more).
I'll give you ten reasons why they are awesome....Read More
1. They always reply to general questions, even if you're not a customer.
I honestly don't know how they manage this. Their outlay must be huge and for very little financial payoff. They often answer you straight away when you land on their website, and they are very clear and direct when asking specific questions. You get help when and where you need it. Straight away.
2. There high quality of service continues through to when you are using their paid products.
Not only do their products just 'work' (very minimal downtime, when I have had issues that arose, Net Virtue would reply very promptly (within a few hours) and when they do reply the are, as always, very helpful. Their technicians are all native English and they know their stuff so sh*^ gets done.
3. If the problem isn't resolved, they babysit you
I have had instances where stuff was broken on my end, and they continued to help. That is UNHEARD of in any company in any industry. Most ppl would have long gone by now.
4. All their services are well priced, even being cheaper than some of their competitors, by enough margin that it is a no brainer. Clearly Net Virtue are top 3 hosting providers in Australia, and they should have a reputation that matches. People complaining about reseller hosting and other low star reviews sound like they aren't giving this provider a fair go. I say take your problems elsewhere if you don't want a great relationship with a company that helps you beyond your tiny imagination.

RE: Shared Hosting Cheap but Extremely Slow. Not good for WordPress Websites. Do yourself a favour and spend more money

I have been with Netvirtue for over 6 years now on their Shared Hosting Economy Package. I'm running a small web development business and run WordPress as my Portfolio website. Over the past 12 months I have been having a lot of i...Read Moressues with Netvirtue. From my website not staying online to extremely slow page loads. It has gotten to the point where I can't even update a page on my site without waiting 5-7 seconds for it to update. As a comparison an economy plan with NetOrigin running WordPress is 10x quicker than what NetVirtue offer. Do yourself a favour and either spend more money or go elsewhere. Support is good with NetVirtue but the performance of their servers has gone downhill. Reliability is a massive issue. Wouldn't recommend.Less

Great support, sharp price

I've found the support team at NetVirtue super helpful. They're located on-shore in Australia, generally get back to me within 10 minutes (yes, 10 minutes!) and have always been happy to help me with whatever questions I have (and there's a lot - I'm a non-techie).

Expert Overview

Experienced Australian Hosting Provider

Netvirtue is an Australian hosting company that has been in business since 2011. They offer a variety of hosting options, and continue to expand and improve the services they provide. Over the years they have continuously reinvested their money into the company to help ensure it is always leading the way in terms of technology and customer service. Some major improvements include, in 2012 they moved to a 24/7 support system, and in 2013 they rebranded themselves to draw more focus on their quality and customer service. One of the biggest projects began in 2014 where they began their hardware refresh project to replace all their hardware with modern systems, which include solid state drives.

In 2015, the company moved over to a custom built network (AS132680) that was designed specifically with their needs, and the hosting needs of their customers, in mind. This has helped them to provide some of the fastest hosting solutions in Australia, and expanded their ability to meet the growing needs of customers from throughout the region. They currently operate out of three data centers, one in Brisbane, one in Sydney, and one in Melbourne.

Uptime & Responsibility

No Reports of Reliability Issues

Hosting with Netvirtue appears to be very stable. They house all their equipment in state-of-the-art datacenters that have fully redundant power supplies, network connections, and more. The hardware used is also high end, including solid state drives in most of their servers. The SSDs can help to avoid down time due to drive failures. Unfortunately, Netvirtue only offers a 99.5% uptime guarantee, which his slightly below the industry standard of 99.9%.


Advanced Features for All Hosting Packages

Customers of Netvirtue can get shared hosting, VPS, dedicated servers, SSL certificates, email hosting, and domain name registration all in one place. Going through and looking at all the different features within their hosting packages, it is clear that they put a priority on keeping up with the latest technologies.  One really nice feature of this hosting provider is that they let you choose which of their datacenters you have your information hosted in. For those in Australia, this will help them to make sure the website is loading from the location that is closest to the customers, which can help improve speed and functionality.

Almost all the hosting servers have solid state drives, which help to improve response speeds and improve reliability as well.  The VPS servers come in four different packages that include from 20 to 120 gigs of disk space, 1 to 6 gigs of RAM, and 2 to 8 CPU cores assigned to the VPS. This will be plenty to run most mid-sized websites without any issues.  Dedicated servers are significantly more powerful with strong CPUs (up to 32 cores), as much as 64 gigs of RAM, and dual hard disks configured with RAID 1 for added stability. If you want to use your own servers, they also have a colocation option to consider.


24/7/365 Tech Support Available

The technical support teams are available 24/7/365 to help you with any type of trouble you are having. Their teams are on site and ready to respond to any type of hardware issue, which they can often detect prior to any actual customer impact. Since the hosting packages are all managed, they will also be there to help with any questions or problems you are having. There is also a fairly in depth knowledgebase for self-help information.


Reasonable Prices at All Levels

All the prices offered by this company are quite reasonable. No matter what type of hosting you need, the pricing will match up nicely with the level of service you are getting. For shared hosting options there are four economy options and four business options. These start at $3.95 per month and go up from there. They have reasonable amounts of RAM and bandwidth available and will keep your sites up and running smoothly all the time.

When you get up to the dedicated server level, the prices get quite a bit higher, but so do the features. The entry level dedicated server is $199.95 per month, and the highest end option is $899.95 per month. These prices do get you very powerful servers that will be able to handle most any type of hosting needs, even for very busy sites. The dedicated servers are also managed so you’ll get the support you need to ensure everything is running the way you want it.

User Friendly

Easy to use Services

Netvirtue uses all standard interfaces such as cPanel for the users. This makes it far easier to work on for those who have had experience with hosting in the past. Even those who haven’t had websites in the past, however, won’t have any trouble using their systems. The website is well made and easy to navigate, which makes choosing your services quick and easy. No matter what it is you’re looking for, everything about this company is easy to use.


Excellent Hosting in Australia

When it comes to hosting in Australia, you aren’t likely to find a company that has more to offer than Netvirtue. They don’t stand out in all areas, but they really don’t lack in any areas either. One of the most impressive things about this hosting provider is how they are committed to reinvesting money into the company to make sure they are always leading the way with features, technology, and other beneficial things.
