What Do We Use? - Townsville Social Media Marketing

What Do We Use?

Domains and Website Hosing

We use and recommend domains and website hosting through CrazyDomains.com.au. They sell .com.au and I’d suggest buying the Premium 500gb package as that will allow you to have more than one website/domain hosted. >>


We use Just Host for our websites and for our clients websites.  It includes a great easy-to-use cPanel that includes WordPress and other CMS install with the click of a button.  Unlimited everything and a free domain name when you register.  We usually purchase the 12 months option for AUD$71.40 per annum.  They also have a 24/7 help line in Australia.

Domain Names

We found Cheap Domains offers value price for domains and includes the option of purchasing .com.au as well as .com domains. Cheap Domains
We also use Crazy Domains where .com.au domains can be as cheap as $24 for 2 years.NOTE:  If you are thinking about signing up with them for web hosting as well, think again… They don’t allow domain “Add-ons” this is when you would like to host more than one website, but they do allow parked domains, that’s where you have other domain names pointing to the website hosted by them.Crazy Domains

Cloud File Storage

We love Dropbox for moving files between devices via synced folders and for creating ‘shared’ folders for use with clients so we can share and move large files securely and and easily. Dropbox

Email Marketing

It’s very important that any business that has an online presence be collecting the email contact details of prospects and following them up regularly. One of the email marketing programs that we use and set up for our clients is Aweber, the industry standard amoungst many internet markerters.  Makes collecting lead data via web form easy and setting up auto responder series emails simple.
