Web Site, Mail Server and Domain Hosting

Professional web hosting from only $10 per month

Web hosting is just one of the ingredients of having a successful web presence. The five key ingredients are

  • Registering a suitable domain name - don't just register what comes into your head as there are many important implications for the name that you choose - talk to us first
  • Web design - this is the look and feel of your web site. It is important that it looks good, but it is equally important that it performs well and that doesn't just mean speed. Poor or inefficient coding can mean that Google or other search engines will ignore your content.
  • Web site hosting - this is the server that your web site site is located on. When someone types in your domain name they are directed to this server and the web pages are delivered from here. Your server will also normally provide you with email service under your own domain name. There a lot of technical issues in deciding a server which is why we use Windows, Linux and Cloud hosting.
  • Content - when you google "how to make a successful web site" you come across the phrase "Content is King" and that is because search engines like Google place enormous importance on the quality of your unique content. It doesn't really matter if you are saying much the same as other web sites as long as you make it sound good, look good, work well and it is unique.
  • SEO - Search Engine Optimisation. Probably the most important aspect and often the most expensive part of operating a successful web site.

Domain hosting costs vary depending on your needs - you can start with a free hosting with your ISP and build up but realise that moving a web site is not a job for a novice especially where applications such as WordPress are involved. The main considerations are:

  • space ie: how many web pages, images, audio or video files and other components.  A small host package today would be 20 megabytes
  • secure access (SSL) facilities for such things as credit card information
  • e-commerce facilities such as shopping carts
  • traffic, your site may be small but very popular, it has to be able to handle the peaks
  • types of design and update access eg: WordPress, Joomla, forums or galleries
  • database services ie: SQL ( required for WordPress and many other applications)
  • streaming audio or video
KeyChange can offer hosting packages from as little as $120 AUD for 12 months on our basic package (inc GST) for this we use web reliable web servers based in the USA. For more professional requirements we recommend that you use an Australian web server, currently we recommend Crucial based in Sydney.

We can establish and manage VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) for internet or intranet use.

Rich Content

The internet is moving rapidly towards audio visual content rather than purely static text/image content. We can assist you in moving towards this with the use of "Movie Whiteboards" eg: Peach Home Loans - Rebate Whiteboard and video editing, voice overs, music tracks and graphics eg: John R Walker - Artist.

Rich content can greatly improve your web site's SEO as Google and other search engines place greater emphasis on this content for search results.
