If you are serious about growing your online presence, you need the best WordPress hosting Australia can offer.
A fast, reliable and secure WordPress website starts with Managed WordPress Hosting.
But as you know, you get what you pay for. Unfortunately I see many website owners using cheaper hosting alternatives to save money.
Using cheaper hosting options is not the answer to saving money.
If your business relies on a website to generate leads and sales, you should be investing more money into your hosting, not less.
Below I’ve reviewed the top 6 best WordPress website hosts in Australia. Each have their strengths; suiting a variety of different business needs.
Let me know which hosting provider you choose.

Top 6 Picks – Best WordPress Hosting Australia
What is WordPress Hosting?
Shared WordPress Hosting
Managed WordPress Hosting
What to look for with WordPress Hosting
Performance – do you need the best? If you don’t have a huge site or lots of traffic yet, then you might not need the absolute best. I still recommend managed WordPress hosting over shared hosting though.
Security – make sure the hosting provider you choose takes security seriously. Also make sure they provide backups and the ability to restore your site if anything goes wrong.
Cost – this is an obvious consideration but worth mentioning. In my opinion, the price difference between cheap shared hosting and managed WordPress hosting is minimal compared to the huge performance benefit.
Disk Space – make sure the provider and their plan has enough space for your website(s). Unless your website is new. Then don’t worry for now.
No. of sites – some providers limit the number of WordPress installations to ensure maximum performance.
Support – having online chat support 24/7/365 from an expert is key. All providers below provide great support. However, some of them might not provide it from Australia. i.e. English might not be their first language.

5. Flywheel – Budget Managed WordPress Hosting
Flywheel was the first ever Managed WordPress hosting provider ever recommended to me.
So they’ve been around a while.
And amazingly, their prices are still very affordable starting from $13/month USD!
Their entry level plan is best suited to small websites with minimal traffic.
