MBS Hosting Packages

MBS Hosting offers two types of shared hosting packages. (VPS or dedicated hosting options are available upon request.)

MBS Web Hosting is perfect for you if you already know a bit about hosting your own websites and is comfortable using cPanel to setup and install websites.

MBS Managed WordPress Hosting is perfect for busy business persons, entrepreneurs, CEOs, small businesses, or individuals who do not have the time to manage their WordPress website(s). Or, is not yet comfortable with using cPanel or prefers not to spend time learning, setting up, installing, and keeping a WordPress website up to date.

MBS VPS Hosting is a good option if you need more power, bandwidth, and want to manage your server. Contact Us for a quotation and more information.

MBS Dedicated Hosting is perfect for larger businesses, corporations, or individuals who require robust and more powerful performance and the ability to maintain and set up their server as per their needs. Contact Us for a quotation and more information.

All MBS Web Hosting and MBS Managed WordPress Hosting packages were created after many years of our personal experience in website design and the specific needs of businesses, luxury brands, and go-getter individuals.

Opt for any of our three pre-designed hosting options, or choose to contact us directly if you have other needs for your hosting by clicking on the ‘Get Quote’ button.

5 – After clicking on the ‘Signup’ button for your chosen MBS Hosting package, you will be re-directed to the Choose a Domain page

Choose 1 of 3 options:

  • Option 1 – Register A New Domain
Register Domain with MBS Hosting

Choose this option if you do not have a domain and need to register one. Type in the name you desire for your domain, and select the TLD, (example .com), and then click on ‘Check.’

If your domain name is available, it will indicate as such. Click on ‘Add’ to add your new domain name.

If your chosen domain name has sadly already been taken by someone else, try adding a slight modification to the name until you have found your perfect domain name.

Once you are happy with your domain name, click on ‘Continue.’

  • Option 2 – Transfer Your Domain From Another Registrar
Transfer Domain to MBS Hosting

Choose this option if you already have a domain at a registrar or another hosting company and want to transfer your domain to MBS Hosting. Type in the name of your domain and select the TLD (example .com) and then click on ‘Transfer.’

Transfer Domain

Eligible: If your domain is elidable for transfer, it will indicate as such. Click on ‘Continue.’  

Important: To complete the transfer of your domain to MBS Hosting, an EPP code will be needed.

Within the next steps of your order, you will be asked to provide your EPP code. Please obtain your domains’ EPP code from your current registrar for authorization before continuing the signup process.

Not Eligible: If your domain indicates that it is not eligible for transfer, do not despair, this may happen for several reasons. No registrar is allowed to keep your domain prisoner. ? It might just be that your current domain is ‘locked’ for transfer.

Login to the account where your current domain is registered, and check if the domain is ‘locked’ or ‘unlocked.’

Contact Your Registrar or Former Hosting Company: You may also choose to contact your current registrar or hosting company to ask them to ‘unlock’ your domain, and help you with transferring your domain to MBS Hosting.

If None of Above Works: Alternatively, you may opt for the below option whereby you will be able to keep your domain with your current registrar, such as Google, and then use the MBS Hosting Nameservers to point your domain to MBS Hosting. (See Option 3 below).

  • Option 3 – Use Your Existing Domain And Update Your Nameservers
