Melbourne IT is Australia's first ICANN accredited domain registrar, they handle web hosting, website design, email and domain registration. We spent a significant amount of time fact-finding and reviewing the company to make sure the information we acquired is correct. 2016 Revised Web Hosting Review: Plans, Pricing, Space, Uptime, Service & more...
We came across several negative reviews focusing on high cost, limited functionality and slow support.
Here are a few limitations we came across: Limited self-service panel (need to call tech support, which is painful as you are frequently on hold for very long periods of time, domain name renewals are $70 a year, twice the price of anywhere else and domain transfers away from Melbourne IT are hugely frustrating.
Bottom-line? We strongly advise potential users to pick GazelleHost Basic (or Business Plan) instead of Melbourne IT cPanel Basic.
- Significant cost advantage, for the same disk space,
- Unlimited websites on GazelleHost vs. only one with Melbourne IT
- Limited number of emails and very limited number of available databases with Melbourne IT
