Web Hosting in Oz

Recommended Posts

I've been using a US based web hosting provider since 2006 but in the past 12 months or so I've noticed the performance of the servers isn't what it used to be.

 

So, I'm now looking to bring my baby(domain) back home and have it hosted in Australia. The top 2 providers seem to be Crazy Domains and Go Daddy, but I was wondering what Atomicans use.

 

As a minimum I'm looking for :

 

Disk Space : 100GB

E-mail : 50 addresses

Websites : 10

Databases : 10

Admin : Been using cPanel which I'm happy with so I'd like the same or equivalent

Backup : Some level of backup would be nice!

 

As you can see it's just personal web hosting and I'm currently paying just under $5 per month

 

What do you use?

I used to work at crazy domains a few years ago, they are Perth based company. I believe they now outsource a lot of their support so I can't recommend them from a support perspective, but I can recommend them for having a reliable service, their unlimited is actually unlimited and best value you will find. If you have specific questions I can probably help, I still have 2 friends who work there (a sys admin and a dev).

 

You'd be looking at about $3-4 a month for what you require.

thanks p0is0n. Support is something I'd hope isn't a problem since it's just basic hosting, it's reliability & speed that I'm after. They are definitely an option...

You could just put Cloudflair in front of your existing sites.

 

Geographic proximity of the hosting server isn't really a problem when using a CDN and they have a node in Australia.

Or Cloudback?

 

Jokes aside.

 

I was using a Danish company who were ok. Cheap though. But i don't really know any Australian hosting companies i can recommend unfortunately.

I use Mammoth Networks, but I run VPS's (windows VPS's for hosting multiple .NET site). I also use their Wordpress webhost.
