    Not a good deal. From what I can tell the discount is $11 per year

    • +1 vote

      Correct i tried it checkout to buy a domain and it said $11 AUD for a .com.au domain so (Sure its a saving but not much…)


        Please make sure you add the promo code "AUS" at checkout to get the free registration or transfer/renewal.


      I give you due credit for using

      • LightSpeed web server


      $11 / year renewals seems reasonable
      but monthly fees seem to be making it
      seem so, by "subsidizing" its cost, IMO

      How does it compare to AXON HOSTING,
      at least for those Not needing Speed
      of SSD storage…?


      Some will offer .AU (eg, My-Name.AU)
      (a new kind of "Aussie domain") soon

      Anyone seen these? How are prices?
      IF not NOW, WHEN will they arrive?



    How are you guys compared to Binary Lane? I'm actually in the market for something like your T1 to start, maybe go up in 6 months or so. cPanel meaning not VPS right?


      Can't speak for other service providers however, you are more then welcome to take benefit of our 30 day money back guarantee with any of Tier of our hosting plan. cPanel can be installed on any service including dedicated servers, VPS, cloud computing and shared hosting. Our hosting plans include dedicated resources for each hosting account using Cloudlinux hence one user can't affect another user's account by draining the server similar to VPS.


    I already have a runcloud subscription for a server panel and I just use it with DO. Any reason why I should use your service, other than it costing a lot more?


      It all depends on your needs, if you need an Australian Server with easy to use cPanel service our service would be ideal. If you need the power of cloud computing and serverless architecture then DO would be a good choice. In regards to cost, rack space, bandwidth and power cost a lot more in Australia compared to most other countries.


    Paying $22 to save $11 isn't a bargain…


      *paying $22 a month to save $11 a year isn't a bargain either!

      AFAIK there are cheaper hosting with free domain registration, as well as cheaper domain name registration available as well.


        I don't think it's even on going - you'd have to pay the $11/year ontop of the $22/mo if you continued with them.

        I basically ignore the hosting package - hosting for what most would need is barely $1/mo these days. For it to be a good price, you'd need closer to a year of hosting with the domain - not a month.


        Hosting & Domain = 2 separate services

        Why not Shop for BOTH separately?


        Eg, we bought 37 .CO domains for $37
        (Yes, that's only for the 1st year..
        so we hope to sell off at least half
        of them to "raise $$ for" renewals.)


        Then found AXON Hosting for as low as $2 / mon
        (We are big spenders, so got ONE for $4 / mon
        from same provider, with Unlimited DOMAINS

        If I read it right, this "deal" offers ONLY
        unlimited SUB-domains, yes? Adding to Cost)

        AU needs to develop a New Tradition of

        (Nuclear Energy from MSR's will help us do so,
        but I digress…)

        "You can cancel the hosting plan after the first month and still own your domain name for no extra charges."

        A step in the right direction… Keep walking… ;~)


          We offer Unlimited Addon, Parked and Sub Domains, so you can have as many domain names pointed to your hosting account, in your example all 37 of them, even on our Tier 1 plan which is only $2.99/month or cheaper if paid yearly ($34.99/yearly), plus you get dedicated resources towards the hosting plan, instead of having others on the server affecting your website.


        Others report, that "free domains" can be troublesome
        or at least not as well respected as traditional ones
