Now you have a domain it's time to link it to your MyHost web hosting plan. Let us show you how easy it is.

Why MyHost?

So you got yourself a domain through Domains Direct. What’s next? Get a good hosting plan of course!

When choosing a good hosting provider, you always have to consider one that will guarantee uptime, speed, security and reliable expert support - all of which you'll find right here.

Across all our Web Hosting Plans, you enjoy a 99.9% uptime guarantee. Always remember that anything less than 99% is below industry standard.

Expert support is provided 24/7 at MyHost (by the same team that stands behind Domains Direct), while speed is maintained with blazing fast NVMe hardware. Our servers are right here in New Zealand to give kiwis the best web hosting services possible.

What’s more is that all Domains Direct customers have access to a free hosting offer from MyHost. How could you refuse?

It's easy to link your Domains Direct domain and MyHost hosting - there are just a couple of steps on each side of the fence.

  1. To enjoy your initial hosting for free, checkout with the discount code given to you after registering your domain. If you don’t know that code, log into your Domains Direct account and you'll see it near the top of your screen.

In Domains Direct, update your nameservers

  1. Now, to update your Domains Direct server into a MyHost site, log in to your Domains Direct account.

  2. Go to the Domains page by clicking on the Domains icon in the header.

  3. Click the domain you have linked to your MyHost plan and change your nameservers to MyHost’s nameservers, starting with ns1.myhost.nz (then ns2.myhost.nz, etc).
