The topic of “who is a good Australian web host” is something that often comes up at various tech events. At a recent Meetup, I was lucky enough to be talking to a few folks involved in the local web hosting and web development industries. I asked them as a group, who they’d recommend and thought it would make a useful topic for a blog post.
Originally published in 2013 (last update April 2019): I’ve updated the list to include a few more hosts I’ve been working with that warrant being added. I’ve also added some information about VPS and shared hosting.
As with most things, if you ask enough people, you will come across someone that hasn’t had the best experience with any given provider so your mileage may (probably will) vary. Do your own research, but hopefully the list below provides a handy starting point. They also cover a wide range of budgets, with hosting – you really do get what you pay for.
