Managed WordPress hosting in Australia

According to Internet World Stats, there are more than 21 million internet users in Australia. It’s home to some of the largest WordPress related companies in the world. Incsub and Envato are two prime examples of companies which actively work to make the community great.

Such an innovative culture requires top-notch architecture that can keep up with modern demands. With our new Google Cloud servers in Sydney, Australia, we can surpass all expectations. According to Google, customers down under will see significant reductions in latency when they run their applications in Sydney. Testing shows 80% to 95% reductions in round-trip time (RTT) latency when serving customers from New Zealand and Australian cities such as Sydney, Auckland, Wellington, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide, compared to using regions in Singapore or Taiwan.

Speed is one of the most important factors for user experience and thus conversions. Thanks to the cutting-edge technology we employ via Google Cloud Platform, PHP 7.4, LXD and others we are able to serve your Australia based and international visitors with the speed they deserve.

If the majority of your website’s traffic is from Australia, choose our Sydney data center!
