Where to start?

So your looking at establishing a web / email identity, but not sure where to start?

Our simple 4 step crash course will have you online and ready to go in no time!

Take a few moments to go through the steps below, if you have any questions please feel free to contact us

Step 1 - Know What You Need

To launch a web or email presence you need the following;

  1. A domain name (e.g. johnsblog.com / johnsbusiness.com.au)
  2. A web hosting account (a place to store your web files and email online)
  3. A vision - know what you want! (private email accounts, a web site or the works?)

FACT: You can have a private web site and email up and running in under an hour from scratch!

Step 2 - Select a Web Hosting Plan

Choose a web hosting plan that's right for you (both budget and feature wise) check out our personal web hosting, business web hosting, or reseller web hosting plans to see what we have on offer.

If you anticipate heavy email usage or a media rich web site presence you may need to select a plan with larger disk space and bandwidth allocations.

FACT: You wont be charged if you reach your plan limits and can easily upgrade/downgrade as your requirements change.

For business web sites and email we recommend selecting one of our business web hosting plans. They come complete with automated daily/weekly/monthly backups and top of the line Antivirus / Spam software.

They can also be secured with SSL if your looking to carry out business online securely (payments, credit card)

Step 3 - Select Your Domain Name

Choosing a domain name that is available can be tricky at the best of times, most businesses choose the standard businessname.com.au but for personal customers you can get a lot more creative.

For business purposes domain names can also serve as a branding tool for your product, service or venture.

Fact: International domains can extend your brand to international customers on an extension familiar to them (e.g. .co.uk).

Once you have selected your domain name you should register it as quickly as you can, its also a good idea to register any variations of it (.com .net. etc) to ensure no one else is able to register them.

Step 4 - Order & Launch

When you are ready to go select your desired web hosting plan and follow the order process through.

You are able to search for and add any domains to your order via the cart system. When you have added the hosting and/or domain combinations of your choice, simply check out, make payment and sit back, we will have your order processed and your domains registered and online in no time at all.

When complete you can login and start building your own online empire; through our easy to use self service control panel system you can;

  • control email accounts
  • deploy a wide range of instant web site packages (Installatron)
  • access a free website builder
  • view web site statistics much more!
