What We Do

Domain Name Management

Your domain name is the core component of your online presence,  we drive ongoing tasks of keeping your personal or business domain/s stable, secure and able to support related websites and emails.

Email Set Up

Make a great first impression with a professional business email address. At Basic Hosting we understand just how important email is to your business so we set it all up for you. You don’t need to know about the technical stuff! Simply tell us the email addresses you need upon registration and we can setup and turn on your professional email.

SSL Certificates

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It provides security to your website and is particularly necessary for websites were clients leave their info e.g. email addresses, id numbers, cell numbers, banking details, etc. If you are optimising your site to rank higher in Google, an SSL certificate is critical. Google now ranks websites with SSL certification higher than those without.
