Choosing a Web Host

Considerations

Target Audience Location: Provided hosting is in Australia and physical location is very important. If the target audience is located outside Australia results can be varied. For best results we recommend that the target audience be located primarily in Australia. If you have a mixed audience please feel free to contact us for a personalised recommendation.

What we need to know

Website Usage Specifics: Details on the intended or current usage is required to assist getting the website off the ground. This will allow us to provide a hosting solution specific to your needs straight off the bat. This includes Disk Space (total file size), Bandwidth per month (data usage per month), Number of MySQL Databases and any other specific requirements.

How Services are Accessed: To allow us to fully test and to allow us to provide support to our standards we will require as much information as possible. This includes the address, username and password for any management or general services you use. Some examples we have – Hosting Management, Domain Name Management, cPanel, FTP and Email. If there are any others you can think of please provide them to us as this will help.
