Best Web Hosting in Australia and New Zealand

Hey Guys,

I currently host my websites with Dreamhost but I am looking at moving on from their service over the coming months. One thing that Dreamhost lacks is the implementation of cPanel.

I would like people to recommend another service that has cPanel and WHM that can offer Apache and NGNIX. The servers must be FAST and be able to service Australia and New Zealand. Also, customer support must be helpful and easy.

I host mainly Magento and Wordpress websites

I am not expert but I use AWS to host my website. Many big companies are moving they servers to AWS host, it may be worth checking it out: https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2012/11/12/announcing-the-aws-asia-pacific-sydney-region/ cheers.

Hi Martin,

I am currently working on a site that is on AWS and am not a fan of their setup and system but thank you for your reply!

HI Mare, did you manage to find a good hosting company? I am looking too and based in NZ. I need Wordpress hosting. Wanted to know whether you had any luck?

Hi Holly,

I am still looking around as I have a mix of both Magento and Wordpress websites and about 50 in total that I need to take care of.

I have a bit of an idea as to what type of server I am after but I am just waiting on results.

Are you hosting just the one Wordpress website?
