Domains and Hosting

In today’s business world, a domain name and a web presence are a must. Your domain name is your online identity, which allows internet users from around the world to locate and browse your web site 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It can be used as your email address and your web address. A domain name can also be used as a supplemental pointer to your existing site name (ie. flowerdelivery.com may be bought as a separate domain name and pointed to your site www.bobsflowers.com.)

A memorable, marketable and brandable name is essential to create your internet presence. As internet traffic increases, businesses will realize that they can no longer ignore the internet.

A domain name must be hosted on a server and so you also need a hosting account.

To get your own domain and hosting, please use the Domain Search Form on our website.

So for instance your may want your domain name for your Organisation ABC to be organisationabc and the TLD to be .org, so you type in the domain name in the respective field and then chose the .org TLD from the drop-down menu.

Then click ‘Go’ and a search will be conducted to see if the domain name is available for use or has already been taken up by someone else.

NB: if there is a TLD that you prefer and is not available, please contact us and we will help you out.

If the domain name is available, you then will be given a chance to chose the TLD and then click ‘Continue’.

Then you enter a ‘username’ and choose a hosting plan from the drop-down menu whether it is Starter, Business, Corporate or Enterprise.

Then you chose whether to pre-install a script or leave at ‘None’. It is better to leave at ‘None’. You also chose the data center location. For PNG, please choose Australia from the drop-down menu. You also enter you Account Owner Details and select the method of payment.

Then you click ‘Continue’
