DOMAINS & HOSTING
GET IN TOUCH
You’ve had your website designed. Now you need to find a place for it to live on the web…
There are two things you need:
Think of your domain name as your web address. It is traditionally your company name – www.yourcompany.com.au – and is the key for your customers to be able to locate you on the web.
Webhance Digital is not a registrar of domain names, but we can certainly arrange your domain name for you and direct it to your website. Cost for this service is $85 for two years.
Hosting is the server environment where the web files and database that make up your website reside on the web. You need hosting for other people around the world to be able to access your website. Think of it as a mobile phone plan – having a number (domain name) isn’t enough – you also need to be connected!
Our hosting plans are flexible according to the needs of your site, robust with a 99.9% uptime guarantee, and come with unlimited databases and your own login access.
Hosting for 12 months starts at $220 for a standard site and increases according to your specific requirements.
Please note that the prices quoted above are applicable for websites designed by Webhance Digital. Transitioning existing sites to Webhance Digital hosting will incur additional fees for time taken to action the transfer.
Another consideration when setting up your website for the first time or transferring to a new host is email. Webhance Digital uses and recommends Google Workspace for email. Keeping your email separate to your website hosting is important as it ensures that one is always available and accessible to customers should something adversely impact the other.
Google Workspace provides a number of plans making their service suitable for business start ups all the way up to enterprise level. Prices start at $8.40 per user/month and includes benefits such as custom and secure email accounts (firstname.lastname@example.org), the ability to access your email online from any device (no email client such as Outlook required), storage for your files via GDrive, Calendar, Video Conferencing and more.
Webhance Digital is able to create your Google Workspace plan, set up your email accounts, and configure your domain settings to direct email to Google for $175+GST (one off fee). Ongoing service fees are payable to Google Australia.
