Crazy Domains Review

Crazy domains is known for offering cheap domain registration services, even to the tune of £ 1.20 per year, although, eventually how much your domain name costs depends on the top-level domain name and your country of residence. But as the name suggests, “Crazy Domains” originates from the fact that it offers you extremely low-cost domain names.


Crazy Domains background

Crazy Domains was started in 2000 and the website claims that since then, it has become one of the leading domain name registrars in Australia, Europe, India and the Middle East. To stick to their brand of “Crazy”, they keep launching or introducing crazy offers like crazy prices for domain names and crazy prices for web hosting plans.

Though, they are cutting costs and somewhere they need to make up, so, many of their customers complain about their inferior interface and even a lack of support sometimes but then, there are many customers who are ready to put up with these small inconveniences in lieu of the low prices that the offer.


Keep Crazy Domains Benefits

Price, is one of the greatest benefits of getting your domain name registered from Crazy Domains aside from their various web hosting packages. Since this review is from the perspective of Crazy Domains being a web hosting company, we will be mostly talking about their hosting features.

They offer web hosting both for Linux and Windows. The Control Panel depends on the operating system you choose for your web hosting package. For both Linux and Windows hosting, they offer instant activation and 60-day moneyback guarantee.

Switching to Crazy Domains is quite simple if you are already running your website somewhere else. They have an automatic interface that helps you transfer your domain to the new host. They also have an “Exclusive Offer” (at the time of writing this review) of 6 months of free hosting if you transfer your domain from somewhere else.

Once you activate your domain on their servers, you can build your website using a drag-and-drop interface – a website builder. In case you want a custom website, they also provide web design services. Need a logo for your branding? They also do that.

Concluding remarks on Crazy Domains

The biggest problem that people have with Crazy Domains, repeatedly, is the lack of proper support but then again, it depends on the sort of experience that you have while dealing with the company. There are many long lasting customers who have had no problem with the domain registration and web hosting company. Actually, such experiences are very situation-centric. If you don’t face a problem, you don’t need to contact the support and if you don’t need to contact the support, you neither have good experience nor bad. When you contact the support, you may have good experience and you may have bad experience. But overall, it is quite an affordable web hosting service. Since there is a 60-day moneyback guarantee, if you’re not happy with their service, you can move to another host and if you’re happy, you can stick around.
