  • We moved to HEAnet for better access to support. That has proven to be the right move. With our previous host, we wouldn’t have gotten that without paying a lot more.

    The support has been terrific, particularly
    with our recent server migration…we’re not just a number.

    It made sense to change over. DIT is part of the HEAnet network, and so are all the primary schools, so we’re in the right ‘family’ of hosting provider.
