  • Service Monitoring alerts are sent to Web24 Support Staff as per the Extended Support service.

Terms & Conditions

  1. Changes to the default ports for SSH and RDP will need to be communicated to Web24 service desk to ensure the Heartbeat Check continues to work. Failure to do so will result in excessive false alerts.
  2. Alerts are sent to one email address and/or one Australian mobile phone number.
  3. To manage the data retention policy, 30 days’ notice of service termination is required. At the end of the termination period, all customer data held on the Web24 backup servers may be deleted.
  4. Customers that require Web24 to backup MySQL and Microsoft SQL Server databases that were not preinstalled at time of order need to contact Web24 to discuss options. This includes database software that was installed after server build.
