Domain Name Prices Slashed to just $19+gst per year.

We have just slashed the price of domain names to only $19 per year. At this rock bottom price for domains, we hope you'll tell all your friends that websitebuilder is the best place to get their domains from. Why not search for that domain you've always wanted right now.

If you are tricky, you can even register Australian .com.au domain names, by selecting OTHER for the ID type, and entering your IRD number. It's subject to review by Australian Authorities, but so far it seems to work for most NZ businesses without an ABN. 

Domain Registration

If you are a website designer, graphics designer, or highly motivated individual, we also have a great offer for too. You can sell domain names and make $2 profit on every domain sold. Checkout our brand new reseller domains option. 

Shopping Cart Now Available On The $15 Basic Plan

You can now add shopping carts to the basic brochure business plan. If you have a low traffic website with less than 6 products, then this is the plan for you. 

Upgrades to Vouchers, Promotions and Discounts

We have recently upgraded the vouchers, discounts and promotions area. So you can now offer discounts like:

  • 50% of pears, 20% off everything else instore, unless already discounted
  • Buy 2 apples, get 30% off pears upto the same quantity purchased.
  • Spend $100 and get 5 free oranges
