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:

Domain Registration

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. Pricing starts at $100+GST p/a for .com.au domains. This includes Premium DNS Hosting, which allows all domain-related records including Dmarc.

Siteground Website Hosting

Website Hosting

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, secure with daily backups that are retained for 30 days, and come with your own login access.

Hosting for 12 months starts at $250+GST for a standard site and increases according to the specific requirements of your website. We offer Webhance Managed Hosting for WordPress sites which includes hosting for 12 months and software management via upgrading your WordPress installation and plugins when new versions are released. Pricing starts at $495+GST and increases in line with the complexity of your sites software.

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.

Email

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. 

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+GST per user/month and includes benefits such as custom and secure email accounts (hello@yourcompany.com.au), 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 offers a Google Workspace package where we create your Google Workspace plan, set up one email account, and configure your domain settings to direct email to Google for $175+GST (one off fee). Additional email accounts may be created for $50+GST per account. Ongoing service fees are payable to Google Australia.
