Domain Name SALE (70% OFF) – .melbourne & .sydney


Over the month of October, the ‘Melbourne Festival’ will take-over the city of Melbourne.  The Melbourne Festival exists to use the transformational nature of the arts, culture and creativity to bring about positive change for individuals, communities, and the spaces in which they live.  In parallel, Sydney will savour ‘The Good Food Month’ with the tastiest, most popular eats at the Sydney Night Noodle Markets.  You’d be dumb-pling not to put this one in your calendar.

To celebrate the ‘Melbourne Festival’ and ‘The Good Food Month’, we are offering a HUGE 70% sale off the yearly price of the .melbourne & .sydney domain names!  The price has been slashed down from $75 per year to a one-month, limited time offer of just $20 per year.  Once you sign up to this offer (the domain name must be registered in October, 2016) the price will be locked in for the duration of your registration (maximum 10 years).

At this price, you won’t find these domain names cheaper on the market without product limitations as bitland will never charge ICANN or brokerage fees.

To view the Program Guide and details of the event, visit the Melbourne Festival website at www.festival.melbourne.

The full Sydney program for The Good Food Month can be found at www.goodfoodmonth.com.

We’ve just launched our new email templates!

You asked and we listened. As of today, we are happy to announce that we have completed the roll-out of our brand new email templates. Just as you suggested, we also felt that our old templates were not as clear as they should be.

Clear & simple communication is something that we strive for everyday at bitland.

We already know how confusing Web Hosting can be (check out our simple explanation of Web Hosting), so we have made our new email templates as clear and simple as possible. Take a look at the new format below!

Why version 56 of cPanel benefits your website

In April 2016, cPanel pushed version 56 of the famous cPanel Portal to the current tier, and started on what is to be included in version 58.  For bitland’s customers, the great news is that they are already enjoying the latest stability fixes and security patches included as part of version 56. For a list of all fixes included in this version, see the official 56 Change Log published by cPanel.

Unlike many other big name Web Hosting providers, we take pride in ensuring our platform is stable, secure and at the current version. After recently migrating to bitland hosting, Bahsel (Director at ATG Clothing) commented,

I was getting increasingly concerned as my current Web Hosting provider was failing to keep their servers up to date. They are currently running cPanel 11.52.6 (build 0) as you can see in the screenshot below. This was of major concern to me.

11.52.6 is now 2 major fixes behind which means there could be major security vulnerabilities in this outdated version.

For bitland’s customers, this upgrade service is at no extra cost. bitland is now planning another cPanel upgrade from version 56 to version 58, ensuring our customers receive the best possible end user experience. Is your Web Hosting provider on cPanel version 56?

ATG Clothing transfers to bitland for Ad-Free, Australian Web Hosting



If a control panel (cPanel) full of cluttered, annoying advertisement is part of your daily web hosting experience, then you will truly appreciate our clean ad-free cPanel portal. ATG Clothing (Attain Those Gains Clothing – www.atgclothing.com) staff were fed up with constantly having to navigate around advertisements in their cPanel portal whilst trying to run their online shop. ATGC contacted bitland for assistance to transfer their website, which was completed with absolutely no outage to their online shop.

Bahsel (Director at ATG Clothing) commented on the experience,

bitland has been outstanding in assisting us with transferring our website. We were fed up with constant advertising in our previous cPanel portal, which always seemed to get in our way.

Bahsel also mentioned that his previous web hosting provider had made false claims on their website – one being the offer of the Latest version of cPanel which was not true. Since moving to bitland, ATG Clothing are now enjoying the latest version of cPanel (version 56.0), which provides some important security fixes and robustness updates.

Bahsel was also concerned with the uncertainty of where his online shop data was stored. Statements such as Most of our servers reside in… and …with some residing in other locations caused serious concern to Bahsel’s business. Bahsel further commented,

bitland’s promise of truly Australian Web Hosting brings our business great comfort in knowing our data is protected. We even got to choose where in Australia our data would be stored.

ATG Clothing are now enjoying an ad-free version of cPanel, hosted locally in Melbourne, Australia. And to top if off, the website transfer was (and still is) a free service offered by bitland.

bitland is a passionate supporter of Australian Small Business Entrepreneurship and wish ATG Clothing every success. Have you experienced annoying ads in your cPanel? Let us know in the comments below.
