How can 4Business Group help me?
Is my website safe and operating?
If you have paid for hosting with us, your site is live, safe, and secure on our Australia-based servers. If you have moved your site, the upkeep of your site is you and your new host’s responsibility. If you have purchased hosting with us and your site is not live, please contact us immediately.
Why is my site offline?
If your site is offline, it has not been migrated to any of our servers, your DNS records have been changed, or your domain may have expired. We may be able to locate and restore a backup, but please note that this is a time-consuming process and will incur a fee on top of regular hosting. If your domain name has expired, you will need to repurchase it from a domain registrar before your website can be restored.
