    You can then let our support team know that you'd like your domain to be transferred to us and we'll issue the transfer request. If your current host uses cPanel, we can also perform a full cPanel migration for you.

    If you still have any questions about transferring your hosting to us, feel free to contact our support desk and we'll be happy to assist.

    Value: Ideal for users looking to host their personal website or blog, as well as a few email accounts.

    In order to determine which package is best suited to your needs, you'll need to consider a number of factors; 1) the size of your website, 2) the amount of traffic you expect to generate, and 3) the number of domains you're going to be hosting.

    Should you decide you need more storage space or bandwidth, our plans are all easily upgradable at a moments notice. Remember, we won't tie you into any contracts, so changing packages is a painless process!

    If you'd like to know more, feel free to contact us.

  • Can I host more than one website on a single package?

    Sure! Simply choose our Value, Standard or Advanced packages and host multiple websites on a single account. No more needing to buy and manage separate accounts for each of your websites. This way, you're saving time AND money. Now that's smart!

  • How do I get a website?

    You have two options:

    1) Hire A Professional

    While this option is definitely the more costly of the two, the benefit of hiring a professional web designer - besides for the time that you'll be saving - is that you're more likely to end up with a site that is far more professional than what you'd have been able to achieve on your own.

    2) Do It Yourself

    If you're eager for the exciting challenge of designing your own website, we offer a myriad of options from which you can choose to do so.

    Firstly, all of our hosting packages include our RVSiteBuilder software. RVSiteBuilder will allow you to easily create and launch a website in minutes, with the choice of a large variety of pre-designed templates.

    If you're looking for something a bit more powerful, you can use Softaculous to quickly and easily install Wordpress (great for website creation and blogging) or Joomla (for the more advanced users).
