    Whats your budget and how big is the site?
    Anchor is pretty good for big sites.
    Smaller site hosting - VentraIP has been alright recently for a few smaller projects.

    I use Ventra, GD Webhosting and Aussie Host.

    All three are fairly good, although Aussie has its moments from time to time.

    Sorry Shane to chime in.I would not use Aussie Host as I've had so much trouble with them over the years. Charging my credit card and not responding to tickets, I've had to dispute credit card charges by them to my bank. Rude tech support when they do respond, no phone number at all to call.

    I have to update and retract crucial.com.au from my recommendations. There experiencing a network wide ddos attack that's taking down sites. But it looks like there is a lot of buzz of ddoss attacks running at the moment with a cyber group taking down hsbc. Found this which is usefull. http://map.norsecorp.com/

    For WordPress websites, of late i'm recommending, https://pantheon.io/
    They specialise in WordPress and Drupal hosting, offer great support, built for web designers, with agency packages, Built for performance with SLA's.

    Pantheon aren't Australian from what I can see.

    Micron21 should be added to this list - not the cheapest around but certainly one of the best.

    Lol, your right joel, definately a friday thing, my bad. Didn't read the thread correctly today, Definately not an Australian host, sorry for the confusion. Its good for WordPress but not local in any shape or form.

    Netlogistics gets my vote. Good service, decent pricing. I've been with them for 5+ years, no major issues, and minor issues resolved quickly.

    I use NetOrigin primarily now. Great team, reminds me of VentraIP before they got too big.
