Features and Ease of Use
Domain Hosting offers four cloud hosting plans (one of which has a three-month free trial), three WordPress hosting plans, three managed cloud hosting plans, two email hosting plans, and three VPS plans. The four cloud hosting plans provide you with:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free .nz domain transfers
- 1 to 3 hosted websites
- cPanel control panel
- 256 MB to 10 GB disk space
- 10 GB to unlimited bandwidth
- 1 to unlimited email accounts
- 5 to unlimited SQL databases
- 1 to 10 parked domains and 2 to 15 subdomains
- SFTP access
- Web statistics
The included Softaculous one-click installer helps you install 400+ popular CMS and other apps without having to be an expert, and the plans are optimized for WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal.
As an alternative to building a CMS-backed website, the free website builder lets you build your web presence by customizing up to 200 professional site templates that include e-commerce functionality.
With Domain Hosting’s VPS plans, you get unlimited bandwidth plus root access for complete control of your server.
Pricing and Support
Domain Hosting’s cloud hosting plans are cheap, and you can pay for them in New Zealand dollars by PayPal, bank transfer, or credit/debit card. Billing cycles range from monthly to triennial, and you can get a free domain for life when you commit to at least a year.
The 30-day money-back guarantee might make you feel better about making more than a monthly commitment because it affords you the opportunity to get out within the first month if you’re not entirely happy.
