Net Onboardian escaped from city concrete block to green land. We had set up to conquer our first challenge – Acrophobia! In a lovely sunny day in Boleh land, we made our way to Skytrex Adventure that located in Bukit Cahaya Shah Alam.

We were there to challenge on our agility, fear, walk, crawl, glide and swing through different adventures in the sky! The wobbly climb up the 15-meter (50 foot) high Crazy Ladder did give us good and warm “welcome”.

A roller-coaster journey drives the whole team crazy. We ran, hold, swung, jumped, flew, screamed and laughed. Many other exciting activities like fun ride on the Tarzan Swings, plus suspended walkways and hanging bridges thrilled us with endless excitement. Two hours exhausted adventure was fully loaded with laughter, challenges, and non-stop fun. We play hard. We work harder! This is one of our daily quotes to live under the sun.

The extreme jungle trekking adventure made us realise that we can also be Tom Cruise – the mission impossible agents. With the high spirit, strong personality and never give up attitude, as well as strong holding towards fast response and great efficiency motto, Net Onboardian definitely is the team to escort you venturing the Cloud Technology Era.

Intended to run a private server hosting but lack of financial budget? vServer is the solution for small and medium enterprise who wants to fully control on website traffic and bandwidth usage with little cost.

vServer combines the power and flexibility of a dedicated server with the cost savings of share hosting. However, as virtual dedicated, the website owner in fact shares the server space with a small number of other users; but each vServer is effectively isolated from other account on the server that allow website owner has the full control over the server space.

It has the privacy of a separate physical computer and can be configured to run as a server computer.

Step 1 : Get Your Domain Name
A catchy and simple name is the first step to set up a website. Parents always gave name to baby when they first arrived in this world. Website is the same. It needs to register a domain name before to start to build up the whole website. Domain name is the address and foundation of a website. Users access to the website through domain name.

Domain name is the combination of any letters or numbers. It is separated to two categories, the first is called general domain name such as .com/.net/.info/.biz and etc. The other is country-specific domain name, for example .com.my (Malaysia)/.co.uk (United Kingdom)/.com.cn (China) and etc.

Usually people will try to create a domain name that is directly link to their company or organization registered trademark. However, a unique and catchy name can be one of the good choices because audience can easily remember and the website can stand out from the crowd. For example: Net Onboard Sdn Bhd has a website with a domain name called www.netonboard.com.
