Receive a 20% discount off your web hosting, for life, by referring a friend 

Did you know that if you refer a friend to use our awesome website builder service, you get a 20% discount off your hosting?

If you refer 5 friends, then you will essentially get your web hosting for free!

Not only that, but your friends will also get their 2nd month web hosting absolutely free. That's a nice little encouragement for them to check our service out and gives us the opportunity to setup your discount. 

Both discounts apply for your  2nd and subsequent websites also. It doesn't matter if it is yours, a friend, family or a stranger. 

Discounts begin once both websites are live. Please make sure you or your friend communicates the referral at the earliest opportunity.

Free domain, or renewal, for web design referrals

But wait, there's more! If you refer a friend for a web design package worth more than $500, then we will renew 1 of your domains for 1 year free!

Nice huh? 

Start a web design business and earn passive income

If you refer more than 5 friends, we can start paying you a 20% commission on all referrals. Or you can become a reseller to earn even more.

The difference between affiliates and resellers, is that resellers must manage their own customer accounts. However, resellers have the opportunity to make greater profits on hosting.

Stop using pen and paper to manage jobs with GeoOP

GeoOP is a job dispatch and mobile workforce management system that uses your phone/ipad/computer to show the status and location of your jobs and staff in real time. Your team can also communicate and allocate jobs with the touch of a button.

Typical GeoOP customers are freight delivery companies, trades people and repair/maintenance organisations. But GeoOp’s not your typical system. GeoOP will improve the daily management of your business by increasing productivity and time management - and then some. 

GeoOP is completely scalable for just about any size business. For the first time, an advanced job dispatch, mobile workforce management and GPS tracking product is within easy reach of any small to medium sized enterprise. Taking GeoOP for a test drive doesn't require a credit card and is completely free, so give GeoOP a go now.

Remove the hassle of receipts and invoices with Receipt Bank

Working with bookkeepers, accountants and small businesses Receipt Bank has developed its software and service to make the gathering, storage and processing of receipts and invoices as easy and as cost effective as possible.

Receipt Bank converts those annoying bits of paper - receipts and invoices - into data you and your company can use! Submit by post, via iPhone and Android apps, by email or by one of the many other submission methods.

Receipt Bank’s aim is to remove the burden that receipts and invoices place on small businesses. We reckon that's a pretty noble cause.

Help! is at hand...

We have totally revamped our Help! and support menu. We call it Help! because that's what you will get here when you need it. We hope you will find it easier to access the subject you are looking for from this menu. There are several places you can find answers to questions about how to build your website and add features (which, there are a lot of) and its free for you to look:



If you can't find the answer you need - then the best way to get an answer fast is to log a support ticket:


In 99% of cases the answer to a problem is covered in one (or more) of these places. We always fix bugs fast, with all the users we have we get notified very fast of any real bug -  they are not common, so if you are having an issue operating the CMS consider some online training with us - you'll always take something away worth value. In all other cases we are happy to do anything you are having trouble doing yourself for a small fee starting from $25 for 15 minutes.
