Hosting Plans Upgrade – More Fast SSD Storage Space
Good news for all our hosting customers.
As of today (1 August 2016) we have dramatically increased the disk space and international traffic quotas across all hosting plans, either double or more than the original plans, at no extra cost! The same fast SSD storage across all plans, just more, for the same price.
Mailbox Size Doubled
Along with updating all our hosting plans, all email mailboxes have been increased at no extra cost from 250 MB base storage, to 500 MB, using the same fast SSD storage technology we use across all services. Meaning you can now store more email when using IMAP, keeping your email in sync across multiple devices.
Additional blocks of 500 Mb can now be purchased for only $1.50+gst / month, and customers who have previously purchased extra blocks have had their pricing updated automatically.
Applying Extra Disk
We have automatically applied the extra disk to all shared hosting customers, reseller hosting customers, and all email mailboxes.
For those customers using a Managed Cloud Server or unmanaged Cloud VPS, you can apply/commit the disk change in the Control Panel, which will reboot your server with approximate 5+ minutes of downtime:
- Login to the Control Panel
- Select your Server under the VPS section
- Commit the pending disk change

A useful overview of all the plan disk changes can be seen below.

Reseller Hosting Price Decrease
We have updated the pricing on three of our Reseller Hosting plans, and introduced a new ‘Ultimate’ plan, to help better align low costs per site across all these plans, ideal for designers and developers.
- Reseller – Deluxe: Was $65+gst / month, now $60+gst / month
- Reseller – Extreme: Was $95+gst / month, now $90+gst / month
- Reseller – Ultimate+: Was $155+gst / month, now $150+gst / month
The new ‘Ultimate’ plan sits in between the Extreme and Ultimate+ plans, and is only $130+gst / month, to host up to 75 websites.

To make things more simple we have replaced the previous separate Magento hosting plan, with the Pro hosting plan, which comes optimised and recommend to host Magento sites. All our Reseller Hosting and Managed Cloud Server hosting plans are also optimised and recommended for Magento hosting.
Customers on the old Magento hosting plan have been automatically migrated to the Pro hosting plan, taking advantage of the increase in fast SSD storage, and a drop in price for these customers to only $30+gst per month.
