Included free of charge.

Our web hosting is integrated with CloudFlare, which will dramatically increase the speed of your website for visitors worldwide. Since Kualo is an optimised CloudFlare partner, you also get their premium 'Railgun' acceleration technology free of charge - usually only available on their $200/mo plan!

Global CDN

Your static content, such as images, will be distributed across CloudFlare's network of over 100 datacentres worldwide. Wherever your visitors connect from - be it London, Sydney, L.A. or Johannesburg - your website will load with lightning speed.

Website Optimisation

Visitors are impatient. Load times can't be slow. Performance is not just about moving static files closer to visitors, it is also about ensuring that every page renders as fast and efficiently as possible from whatever device a visitor is surfing from.

Security

The collective knowledge of 5 million websites powers a new kind of security. Online threats range from nuisances like comment spam and excessive bot crawling to malicious attacks like SQL injection and denial of service (DOS) attacks. Cloudflare provides protection against all of these types of threats and more to keep your website safe.

60-Day Money Back Guarantee

If you change your mind and don't wish to continue your hosting contract, you may cancel at any time within the first 60 days and we'll give you your money back. If you transferred or registered a domain name, these fees are non-refundable, however you'll be able to continue to use them elsewhere if you wish.

No Lock-In. Leave any time.

We give some tasty discounts for those customers who want to pre-pay for longer periods. But we want you to stay because you love us, not because you're contracted to. If you decide you need to leave before your term expires, let us know and we'll simply deduct any discount originally applied and refund the balance.
