Digital Pacific "Personal Basic" Plan

  • AU$9.90 per month
  • AU$99.00 per year with discounts if paying two or three years in advance

The Digital Pacific "Personal Basic" Plan is a good entry level shared web hosting plan suitable for personal and other small websites.

Remember to allow space for backups and emails stored on the server which both count towards the 2 GB limit.

WordPress and Joomla look like they can be run on this web hosting plan since a database is now provided.

Static HTML websites will run fine on this web hosting plan.

Flat file content management systems such as October CMS, Grav, Bolt, WonderCMS and Pico will run fine on this web hosting plan.

Digital Pacific

Digital Pacific was founded in 2000 and is based in Sydney.

The Digital Pacific brand has been built on reliability, affordability and trust and they have mostly relied on word of mouth to grow their business.

Digital Pacific acquired Crucial in 2015 and Anchor in 2017 and were themselves acquired by Hostopia in 2017. Hostopia also acquired Panthur in 2017. So far, the Australian brands acquired by Hostopia do not seem to have suffered any loss in service or reliability despite their overseas ownership.

Digital Pacific has a strong commitment to sustainability and purchases carbon credits to cover its emissions. For more information see:

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.
