Domain Registration and Transfers

Phase Change has replaced this service with an updated offering - please view updated information here.


A domain name is an identification label that defines a realm of administrative autonomy on the Internet - as if that makes it any more understandable ;P Simply put, it is a name on the Internet that can be reserved for use by a person or entity.

We are able to register any domain internationally available and offer domain registrations, updates and annual renewals as a "direct to customer" service or in some cases "on behalf of the customer" where their anonymity is requested. We also offer dispute resolution and purchase negotiation services as well as domain transfer services between any two hosts. Below is a list of the more popular domains and their annual cost.

* Payment intervals only available on quarterly, bi-annual or annual basis, these packages are not recommended for business use as they are "micro" packages.
** No setup fee is charged for a basic package creation, since all the functionality is provided for the user to be able t o create and manage anything from that point onward including mailboxes etc. Only configuration of the package after creation is charged as a set up fee - mailbox creation, database creation, settings changes etc. if we are required to do this for the customer.
*** All our hosting packages are search engine optimization friendly and provide certain search engine optimization benefits.


What is Overages or over usage charges and why is is applicable?
We are able to keep our prices this low by strictly managing the space and bandwidth provided as part of each package. Each package has a base amount of disk space and bandwidth per month included in the price, if more is used then these charges apply. At least our rates are some of the lowest around.

button_linuxWhy use Linux for hosting?
Linux is a universal open source Operating System and therefore it is inherently more secure, stable and cheaper to operate than proprietary Operating Systems. Due to these facts, it costs less to maintain and own and for that purpose alone, it is a better choice for hosting since you end up paying as little as possible for these services.

Are these packages contracts?
No - it is a month to month solution that can be cancelled, downgraded and upgrades as required within any calendar month cycle. The two "micro" packages however require quarterly payment due to the ridiculous cheap prices we offer but it is still not bound to any contracts.

The following features are standard on all packages:

  • 99.9% up time guarantee
  • Our data centres are climate controlled physically secure environments
  • All networking equipment, servers and outbound connections in our data centers are redundant
  • Backup power by means of diesel generators, uninterruptible power supplies and power regulated circuitry are provided
  • Backups are automated scheduled and tested regularly
  • Our data centres are fire protected
  • Friendly service at all times ;)

We also provide uncapped hosting - please see our windows based hosting solutions for details.

 button_winWhy use Windows for hosting?
In reality, there is not much of a difference between a hosting environment on the Windows and Linux platforms. Traditionally Linux provides a more stable and secure environment while Windows provides features making it easier for developers to develop a more involved website or web application. This is however not entirely true any more. The only reason Windows is usually chosen as a hosting platform, is due to the fact that some developers prefer to use those proprietary technologies developed by Microsoft, such as .Net and ASP or MS SQL. The only other difference you as a customer should be aware of is the inherent higher costs associated to Windows licencing.

Are these packages contracts?
No - it is a month to month solution that can be cancelled, downgraded and upgrades as required within any calendar month cycle. The two "micro" packages however require quarterly payment due to the ridiculous cheap prices we offer but it is still not bound to any contracts.

The following features are standard on all packages:
