| January 19, 2016 | 18 Comments

Australia is not cheap and web hosting prices is very competitive, with the growing number of bloggers on the internet. If you are looking to start a blog with wordpress or just another website platform like Drupal, Joomla, Phbb forums , zencart or more – Then you have come to the right place. I have done a new comparison roundup for 2016 of the finest local aussie  hosting companies and also US hosting providers.

I have brought together all the information you would need if you are looking to start a website, so that you can make and informed decision.


hosting companies compared in 2016 in australia

Hosting for websites and blogs are very competitive and so they are always price matching done regularly by the big hosting companies. If you are just searching for a good  host that will get  your blog up and running  without any problems, then I suggest you start with the US webhosting providers as their prices are affordable ( from $1 to 4.95 per month) and they get the job done.


I started my first blog in 2000 and I have been blogging for the past 10+ years and currently still hold 5 hosting accounts; at one time I had at least 8 different website-hosting accounts- so I know what I am talking about. I run my own websites/blogs and manage some for friends and family. I have used quite a few of the providers in the below comparison chart, however now I am only signed up with five web-hosting companies which are also included in the table below.

Below are some of the good website-hosting providers in the website and blog niche.

These are  popular with a lot of established bloggers ( like pat flynn, Glen allsop and Yaro starak)  who have also been in this industry for more than 10 years and making a full-time income by blogging and other on-line related activities.

[ Disclosure: is  a Bluehost/ Hostgator/Hostmonster/ Godaddy / Dreamhost/ Ipage affiliate partner and we also have hosting accounts with these services, which means that in addition to using their service, we also receive a commission for referring new customers. To be fair, though, we would still use  any of these Hosting services , but do have a preference  for some  and so we have done a full review of all the hosting  partners we use. Ergo, we don’t recommend Bluehost or any featured host just because we’re an affiliate (every hosting company offers a similar affiliate program and you could pick any of them ), but we recommend Bluehost because they are the best, most reliable option. Plus, because we’re a partner, Bluehost offers a special price for readers: only $3.95 a month and you already have our godaddy $1 special above. That’s a phenomenal price. Links provided above will take you to  the latest updated promo deals. Feel free to pick which host suits your budget or preference and good luck  ]

      Hi thomas

      In my opinion hostgator and bluehost comes pretty close to good quick response to tickets raised for replying. i have never had to call anybody really so far by phone as no real important urgent needs arose and it hopefully wont arise for you.. but you can call them as well if urgent ..I normally use skype i normally call godaddy for bulk domain renewals via skype probs
