Which hosting should I use?

Updated 3rd March 2017: I realised that I hadn’t updated this post in quite a while. I stopped using Webcity well over a year ago when I felt that their service went downhill. I hear that they’ve improved since then but I won’t be going back to find out. I left Hostgator because I needed some technical support (only stuff they could deal with) and when they did get back to me it was wrong and I had to wait a few days again for it to be sorted out.

This partly depends on what you want to do with your website. If you know that you want affordable websites such as those created by WordPress and Joomla simply ask the hosting company if you can run a WordPress or Joomla website on their hosting.

For our customers in Australia, who prefer 24/7 support with hosting in Australia we recommend Prompt Web Hosting  Webcity. We’ve used them for a lot of our clients and have been impressed with their service, support and pricing. They have a easy to use control panel (Cpanel) which puts you (or your developer) in control of your website.

If you require more than one domain then Prompt Web Hosting Hostgator may be an option for you. Usually when you host more than one domain then you have to pay for separate hosting for each domain. That’s not the case with Prompt Web Hosting Hostgator. You can have one main domain and lots of others and still pay for one hosting. This is very cost effective for online marketers who may have websites in several niche markets.

It really depends on what you want your website to do, but we’ve found this these two hosting company to be very good. If Prompt Web Hosting had an affiliate link it would be here. We’re so impressed with them that the links above are affiliate links, which means that if you sign up through those links then we will receive a small commission. We only recommend services we use ourselves or our clients use.
