About CILLIAN.

Fast, Secure and affordable Web Hosting

Our Story

Our commitment is to deliver affordable web services that are fast, reliable and secure; to be transparent about the services we provide; and to help you develop a more professional site even on a budget

- this is what drives us.


Since our humble beginnings in 2012, the Cillian brand has extended to three core divisions: our independent book publishing operations, professional editing services and our domain and website hosting services. Our commitment to help authors achieve success is what drives us. These three groups were established with a specific aim to generate exposure and help showcase new and emerging authors at their very best.

Over the years we’ve developed lots of websites and have assisted many others build their own. These included websites for writers, artists, tradespeople and community groups. Nowadays it has become a necessary for many to have a website. Not only is it an effective way to promote your business value or capability but also allows you to reach and engage with a wider audience and establish a credible online brand. We’ve learned a lot during this time and with lots of research into various ways our authors could create and manage their own websites with virtually no technical experience, we’ve managed to package up a little piece of this magic.

Our requirements were simple – provide an inexpensive, ready-to-go website platform for those with limited technical knowledge. It needed to be simple to use, with drag and drop web page design functionality. The hosting packages needed to be clear and simple that would included all the functionality that you would need for a professional looking website. We needed clear pricing that was transparent with NO hidden lock-ins, NO proprietary software that might inadvertently lock you in to our service and ensure that domains were always owned by you.
