Digital Pacific is an Australian company that specializes in Australian hosting and domain names. You can purchase a domain name through Digital Pacific for under $10.00, and they have up to 25 different extensions available. Some extensions and domain names cost more, so be sure to check with the company before making a purchase.

Digital Pacific offers two basic plans: Personal and Business. They also offer dedicated and VPS hosting at a slightly higher price. If you are not sure which is right for you, the Personal plan is probably best to start with. If you see you need more room or features, you can always upgrade your package to Business.

The Personal Plan includes 250 MB of space and 10 GB of bandwidth, as well as free Site Builder. With Site Builder, you can create an HTML website without even knowing HTML. The Personal Plan comes in three tiers: Basic, Standard, and Advanced. Basic must be paid for in advance, but the other two plans can be paid monthly. You save more money if you pay annually with the Standard and Advanced plans.

With the highest tiers, you receive unlimited e-mail accounts, 20 to 50 GB monthly transfers, and either five or 15 MySQL databases. You only get two e-mail accounts with the Basic Plan and no MySQL databases. The plans begin at under $5.00 per month and work their way up to just under $13.00 per month – again, with extra savings if you pay annually.

The Business Plan has five tiers, starting at just under $15.00 and going all the way up to $44.90 per month. You save money when you pay annually with any Business plan tier. Business Basic allows for 100 GB bandwidth, while the others allow for unlimited. You get unlimited e-mail and subdomains with every tier. Every tier in the Business plan also receives unlimited MySQL databases. With business hosting, you can choose from four shopping cart software packages.

Marketing your website is important, whether you are a business or personal site. Digital Pacific helps with extensive DIY information on SEO, or search engine optimization. This is the process for improving your site’s standings in the search engine rankings. These helpful documents come free with all accounts.

Digital Pacific also offers a number of extras with all accounts, some of which are free. In some cases, you are not charged a setup fee, but must pay for the extras you want. Freebies include Content Management Services, or CMS, and discussion boards or forums, in addition to others. There are also free shopping carts that can be included, but if you need a shopping cart you probably need a business account and should look there for a shopping cart package instead.

Digital Pacific’s wide range of plans makes them one of the more flexible providers on the list, but they do not offer all the features and services of other web hosting providers. Digital Pacific is great for enterprising businesses, but personal webmasters should probably look at other providers before making a decision.
