www.inthemix.com.au is Australia's number one dance music website, offering comprehensive content for dance music fans nationally including news, interviews, community chat forums, streaming audio & video, competitions and event listings. With more than 150,000 unique visitors each month, the site experiences constant demand for availability, with many visitors returning to the site daily or weekly.
After a series of hosting-related issues that affected inthemix's availability, the company decided it needed a hosting provider with the infrastructure, business culture and depth of managed services to deliver the guaranteed availability and reliability it required.
Co-founder and Managing Director Andre Lackmann said the company had sought reliability in selecting a hosting provider. "We're moving into a phase of business where reliability is very important to us," he said. "We were getting to a size where, to continue to grow, we needed a business that could support our rate of growth. Hostworks made it clear that reliability wasn't going to be an issue. Hostworks also provides more than just hosting: They can offer us advice about future planning based on their experience running other critical applications."
Hostworks CEO Marty Gauvin said inthemix was a great example of businesses that were succeeding on the Web. "The key to their success is guaranteed availability so their customers can reach the site whenever they want," he said.
