What makes our company the best choice for domains and hosting in 2020/2021

Domain Registration DNS is Australia's newest domain name registration and web hosting company. We launched our new service mid 2019 after a complete redesign of the services we now provide. We wanted to provide the Australian public something completely new, fresh and unique. Not to mention service offerings that you don't usually come across with a affordable price range. We provide an enterprise grade product at a small business start-up cost.

Here we will demonstrate what makes us different, sets us side from other Australian domain name registrars and why we should be your first go to choice for domains and hosting.

We decided to provide high grade enterprise level products and services at an affordable small business start-up cost. While searching for a domain name registrar here in Australia, you may have already noticed that the general pricing for registering an .au address is much more expensive than the standard international .com name space. When it comes to .au domain names. The initial standard registration period is 2 years. Unlike .com which is one year. This is the case with all Australian domain name registrars.

We decided to change all that. If you shop around you would have noticed that some registrars are charging high prices for Australian domain name registration. We did some research and included five of the most well known domains and hosting companies in Australia. The results indicated the average price for .au registrations was approximately $96 per two year registration. With the highest being $139 for a standard two year registration. As we have already mentioned you can only register a .au address for a minimum of two years. So we decided to match .com pricing at the same amount per year for .au. 

Our pricing structure. 

.com | $24.99 /Year

.au  | $24.99 /Year*

When you find the average .au pricing being around $96. Our pricing is ultra competitive especially when we bundle completely free DNS management. You may come across cheaper registrars however you wont have complete control over your domain name. So be careful not to be fooled by cheaper domain name deals posted by other registrars. You don't get much in terms of flexibility, redundancy or speed.

All of our domain registrations come with completely free DNS management which allows an unlimited number of DNS records to be created. You also get completely free domain delegation. And it gets even better. Our DNS servers are not just the usual kind you will find with many other registrars. We operate Anycast DNS servers. This gives your domain faster response times and no single point of failure. Many other Australian registrars do not use Anycast DNS. If online success and flexibility is something that's important to you then you ultimately need this kind of technology.

Anycast DNS is a form of traffic routing algorithm that is used for the fast delivery of website content. It advertises individual IP address on multiple server nodes. Internet user requests are directed to specific server nodes based on factors such as the capacity and health of your server, and the distance between it and the website visitor.

Anycast DNS provides.

1, Automatic load balancing.

2, Enhanced DNS security

3, Improved network latency and speed.

4, High network and DNS availability

5, Simplified DNS configuration.

So what's so special about our web hosting? 

We operate our hosting servers on a fully distributed clustered backend. This means when you upload your website to our hosting servers your site wont occupy just one single server as it does with many other hosting companies. Instead, it is distributed across multiple servers within a cluster. What does this mean for you and your web site? Your website will be mirrored onto several other highly available web servers. If one or even two of our web servers goes down at the same time for any given reason there is no need to worry. You site wont go down because other hosting servers within our distributed cluster will keep serving up your web pages as if nothing ever happened! We think that's pretty cool and it all happens automatically. You wont ever need to spend extra money to setup your own complicated backups. We do all of this for you seamlessly and autonomously.

And this is the best part!

When all of our servers are online at the same time which they usually are, your website is load balanced between them. This results in blazing fast site speed. Further more we use the industry leading cPanel web hosting platform. One of it's amazing features allows you to compress your web site files making them smaller, as a result the file size is reduced making web sites load faster because there is less data to download when somebody requests your web site. Internet surfers these days don't like to hang around on slow loading web sites. They wont stay engaged and they will move onto the next one. This is another reason not to choose a cheap $3 per month hosting plan. If you want to keep your visitors around, your site needs to load fast!

You can move away from your current hosting provider and enjoy our high burst web hosting servers with up to a 30% increase in hosting speed. With a faster responding web site, your ranking position within the major search engines can increase also. Search engines such as Google use over 200 different factors when deciding where your web site will be positioned and ranked in the search results. Page speed is one of these factors. Google tends to rank slower websites further down in their listings and faster web sites closer to the top. So by migrating your site over to our blazing fast high burst clustered hosting servers. You may actually see a good improvement in rankings within the major search engines which is an extra added bonus! However it is worth noting at the end of the day we can't control the decision's made by search engines. But this will defiantly help!

Extra added bonus features.
