There are three different options for hosting a web site with paradise.net

   
Homepages hosting You receive 10MB of server space free with any Cable, Paradise ADSL, Jetstart, Paradise 150 or Paradise 250 plan. To have a domain name pointed at that rather than the default URL (http://homepages.paradise.net.nz/username/) it will cost $10 every 28 days. There are a number of restrictions on this however; upload access to the site is restricted to paradise.net connections, only one homepages site is permitted per paradise.net account, the site cannot be too busy and you can have only static pages.
   
Basic Commercial hosting With this plan you're hosted on one of our high end commercial web servers. Your disk allocation is 20MB. Again, however, you can only host static pages. Lastly you have 500MB of traffic for serving. If you go over the allocated traffic you will be billed at a rate of 35c/MB. Basic Commercial web hosting costs $20 every 28 days.
   
Commercial hosting This is equivalent to Basic Commercial web hosting, with the addition of dynamic and secure content. Secure content requires that you obtain an SSL certificate from a certification authority (see www.verisign.com or www.thawte.com for examples). Dynamic content can be provided by way of CGI and PHP scripting, optionally including use of our SQL database (MySQL). Commercial web hosting costs $50 every 28 days.
   
We can point multiple domains at a single web space free of any additional charge. However, if you require different content to be displayed for a domain then you will need to purchase an additional webhosting plan.

Any queries regarding hosting can be directed to webmaster@paradise.net.nz.
