Why Choose Us
In a nutshell, we offer you better quality hosting at a comparable price to big-brand hosting companies.
Acorn-Solutions.com.au is an innovative boutique Hosting Business offering premium Business-Class Website and Email Hosting. My name is Michael and I am the owner of Acorn-Solutions.com.au. I have been using computers since 1979 and administering hosting servers since 1997. I do NOT resell someone elses servers, I run our own Hosting Servers. My servers offer you faster page loads, less time spent on spam blacklists, better security and actual expert advice compared to the "other" Hosting companies.
We use CloudLinux, a Linux distribution built for Hosting servers. The result is better performance and better security for every website we host. We use an IBM Data Center and raid enabled solid state hard drives.
Our performance is monitored by Uptime Robot.
2020 marks 23 years hosting websites on the internet!
DIY WebSite or Ecommerce
Building your own website or Ecommerce is very simple (and can save you $$$$'s). We provide one click install of many popular software packages.
For an Ecommerce site we recommend OpenCart. Yes a free SSL Certificate is included with all hosting.
For a simple but effective website that can be created in just 10 minutes - we offer Site Publisher. No templates - just choose a colour and enter text and click the publish button.
If you want a website that's a lot fancier (and will take longer to build) - then we offer one-click install of Wordpress with lots of free themes to choose from.
Our Cloud Hosting Package is paid for MONTHLY. This allows you to change your Hosting configuration within 24 hours (just email us). Need more space? Within 24 hours you have more space. The other great thing about our cloud hosting is that you only pay for what you need. This means we can give you a better price on Hosting. Why pay for things you dont need!
Cloud 1 - This is our least expensive option. It is great if you only want to use email and/or you only want a simple HTML website. Price is just $8 per month.
Cloud 2 - This gives you a database and enough resources to run ecommerce software such as OpenCart or have a database driven website such as Wordpress. Price is just $14.50 per month.
Extra email boxes are 50 cents, extra 500mb space is $1.50. You can also add-on extra databases, sub-domains etc. You may send up to 100 emails per hour with 125 queued for the next hour after the first 100. If you wish to send more emails than this you need to look at our Virtual Dedicated Server.
