If you start buying domains and hosting for clients then you begin becoming a sudo domain and web host. My advice is don't do it unless you're prepared to offer the support when things go bad. It's not worth the headache just to make a few extra bucks a month.

@dan – even in the video, there's a bunch of features which aren't in illustrator which would be super useful and same I've quickly read some comparisons online which shows it out performs in some areas but lacking not quite as good in other areas unfortunately like missing plugins and scripts :(

Wow, thanks for all the thinking you've put into this for me!
The problem with my data in this case is that it's quite linear; 750 of the group in total, with sub groups of 162 and 84 that I'd like to highlight by colouring them differently.
Visually, I wanted to show the totality of the group and how the sub groups form part of it. I'm not really making a graph at all as there's no x or y to plot to, so I'm not sure how I could use a scatter graph etc. to build this.
@Adam designs - a graph from excel can be copied and pasted straight into Illustrator; there's no need to export as an extra step, which is a wonderful thing! If I knew how to build this as a scatter graph this would be the way to go. **(pro tip - if you ever get funny text issues when you copy and paste the graph, it's probably because Excel has used Calibri. Change that font to a basic system font and you should be happier!)**
@Dan you're right that patterns would be the fastest way to do this, but in this case I need to be accurate with my numbers which patterns can't help me with. Having said that, it may well be better than manually placing each dot!
