Pre-Sales Questions

What is web hosting?
Web hosting (also known as shared web hosting) is, in its simplest terms, space on our web servers for your website. Our web hosting plans allocate you a set amount of resources such as disk space, bandwidth, email accounts and hosted domains. The web space supplies the storage for your website files while the bandwidth is used each time someone visits your website.

Yes, all prices quoted on our website are in Australian Dollars unless otherwise stated.

Are there any hidden costs or setup fees?

Do I need my own domain name?
Yes. You are required to have a domain name to use with your hosting package. This can be purchased from a Domain Registrar.

I already have a domain name that points to my website with another host. Can it be moved to your hosting?
Sure. Just point it to the nameservers for your new web hosting account here.

Should I pick a web host in the same country that I am in?

Post-Sale Questions

How do I access my website control panel?
cPanel may be accessed at http://www.yoursite.com

Which folder do I load my web pages to?
You should place all of your web documents in the public_html directory.

What DNS settings do I use to point my domain to your server?
When you need to enter/change your Domain Name Server (DNS) settings with your Domain Registrar, you will need to enter the DNS (Domain Name Server) Settings that were provided to you in the 'Welcome' email that we sent you. This will allow your Domain Name to be pointed to your web pages on our servers. Your Domain Registrar is the company/web site you have registered your Domain Name with.

How long does it take for my DNS changes to update world wide?
Normally you can expect to see your web site DNS to change within 24 hours once you have made the modifications at your registrar.

Why can I only see a list of the file names when I visit my web site?
This is because you don't have a Default Home Page. The Default Home Page is the First page that you will see when you enter your web site. The file named "index" should be your Default Home Page, for example, index.htm, index.html, etc. If you name the file that you wish to display as your Default Home Page as "index", you will see your Home Page as soon as you go to your web
