BUYING A DOMAIN NAME AND WEB HOSTING
One of the most common questions we are asked about is how and where to buy a domain name and web hosting. We recommend using an Australian Company for both as we have better security in our country, the prices are affordable and the servers are located in Australia. This means all your information, including emails that run through your website, are stored in Australia. Another question is should I buy .com.au? The short answer is yes, once again it is more secure and will still be found overseas, if that is required.
There are a few companies to choose from and each have there good points and bad points. The prices are similar and so is the service. The size of the web hosting required will depend on how much information you wish to display, the kind of files used, video and photos take up more space than text and graphics, and if you plan to sell from your website.
Buying your Domain name should cost no more than $25 for 2 years, and web hosting starts from $60 per year. This is a cPanel web hosting and is fine for most websites. The overseas companies often advertise a cheaper price but beware, they do not offer cPanel or email and everything you need to build a website. When you add all the things you need it ends up being more expensive, plus they often advertise in US dollars. We also recommend buying your domain name and hosting from the same company for ease of use.
