Crazy Domains describes itself as a now-legendary hosting provider that has grown from humble beginnings to become a leading domain name registrar in Australia, Europe, India, and the Middle East. It claims to offer crazy-good deals at crazy-good prices, and that's certainly true if you sign up for ten years!

Overview

crazydomain mainIf you are in a hurry, and just want the bottom line: for the same price as Crazy Domains you can get much better servers with 24/7 support with Hostinger, so why even bother?!

Hosting provider Crazy Domains is owned and operated by DreamScape Networks FZ-LLC, which is a part of DreamScape Networks group. The various location-specific Crazy Domains sites — CrazyDomains.in, CrazyDomains.co.uk, and CrazyDomains.com.au, and more — are essentially the same apart from the currency, and all appear to be in English.

Crazy Domains offers Linux and Windows shared hosting, WordPress hosting, VPS hosting, domain registration, web design, and online marketing.

Features and Ease of Use

Crazy Domains

Crazy Domains sells three Linux shared hosting packages and three Windows shared hosting packages that have different specifications but share the following features:

  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Automatic regular backups
  • Plesk (with all Windows plans)
  • cPanel (with all Linux plans)
  • Antispam/antivirus
  • DDoS protection

All Windows plans come with the user-friendly Plesk control panel to manage all aspects of your website. This includes a one-click installer that simplifies the installation of CMS and other apps such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, PrestaShop, Magento, and more.

The Linux plans, on the other hand, come with the cPanel control panel that has an even more user-friendly interface and the Softaculous installer. You can also manage your hosting remotely via SSH.

Pricing and Support

Crazy Domains

Compared with international market prices, and for all the features and specifications on offer, Crazy Domains has an affordable and easy-to-use pricing system. You can easily switch to different currencies, and you can pay with PayPal, WebMoney, AliPay, UnionPay, and Neteller.

Contract periods range from one year to ten years, with a very generous 60-day money-back guarantee to get you out if anything goes wrong within the first two months.

Customer support can be accessed via live chat (existing customers only), telephone, support ticket, and email. Unfortunately, my test support ticket received no response, so I was pleased to see a pretty comprehensive knowledge base that answered many of my questions.

Bottom line on Crazy Domains

Crazy Domains achieves a good balance between price and quality to give it a competitive edge. My only complaint is the lack of response to my pre-sales support ticket.

Before you make a decision, we highly recommend you check out some alternative hosting companies, which we highly recommend.

Pros

  • Affordable prices
  • 60-day money-back guarantee
  • A global network of servers
  • Windows and Linux support

Cons

  • Unresponsive pre-sales support
  • SSL certificates cost extra

How Do I Transfer My Domain from CrazyDomains?
To transfer your CrazyDomains domain to another registrar, you will first need to first get your registry key (also known a transfer key or EPP authorization code). This is a simple process that can be done in your account management interface – as long as your domain is unlocked. For some global domain names, your domain will remain locked for the first 60 days after registration.

It’s often cheaper to register your domain for two or more years to take advantage of special offers and discounts.
