How does it work?

Do I need to use a special hosting company, and does Black Eye supply hosting?

Your site can be hosted by whoever you choose. We just need to create a database, so your service plan must at least include MySQL version 5.0 or greater and PHP version 5.0 or greater. Most providers cover these basics, just ask them if you’re unsure.

Black Eye do not usually supply hosting as it is not our core business, we strongly recommend that if you don’t already have hosting, you purchase space with a reputable and well-known provider e.g.

  • Telstra
  • Optus
  • Net Registry
  • GoDaddy


We will need your server log-in details: ftp host / username / password. These details are supplied to you by your hosting company when you sign up to a plan.
