Crucial "Performance" Plan

  • AU$59.90 per month
  • AU$599.00 per year

The Crucial "Performance" Plan is a good high end shared web hosting plan suitable for large, complex or high traffic websites.

Remember to allow space for backups and emails stored on the server which both count towards the 50 GB limit.

WordPress and Joomla run fine on this web hosting plan.


Crucial is an experienced web hosting company that was founded in 2003 and is based in Sydney.

Crucial was acquired by Digital Pacific in 2015 who were then acquired by Hostopia in 2017 although Crucial still operates under it's own brand.

Crucial has a commitment to sustainability and offsets carbon emissions through their Evergreen program.

The primary purpose of this website is to provide unbiased, honest and up to date information about the best Australian web hosting companies.

It's certainly reasonable to question the integrity of web hosting comparison websites especially ones that promote Bluehost, Hostgator and GoDaddy as Australian web hosting companies. None of these companies have any server infrastructure in Australia but are often promoted in Australian web hosting comparisons because of the generous commissions that they pay. I don't recommend any of these hosting companies for local websites and they are not included on this website.

Hosting companies are included on this website based on merit rather than any commission they might or might not pay. I judge web hosting companies based on my own experience building and maintaining websites for hundreds of clients over the last 10 years, opinions of trusted web professionals, trusted industry forums, genuine reviews and other web resources.

For transparency, all "Visit Website" affiliate link buttons on this website are prominently displayed in orange with an "Affiliate Link" tooltip shown when you hover over the button.

Purchasing web hosting via an affiliate link here is much appreciated as it helps cover the cost of running the website and motivates me to keep the information up to date.
