New Hosting Plans Added LogoROBTEC Hosting Logo

With Netorigin, Zuver and Net Virtue all absorbed into VentraIP over the last few years and with several brands such as Anchor, Crucial, Digital Pacific and Panthur acquired by Newfold Digital in March 2022, the choice of Australian owned and operated web hosting companies was starting to look a bit thin.

I have been researching what else is available and have added, ROBTEC Hosting, Sitefoundry and Stealth Internet plans to the Web Hosting Down Under website this month.

ROBTEC has been in the web hosting business since 2009 and their web hosting plans certainly give VentraIP a run for the money especially since VentraIP have increased their prices.

Website owners looking for enterprise grade fault tolerant web hosting should check out who is an Australian owned and operated family business which started in 2010.

Sitefoundry is independently owned and operated in Australia and started as a sister business to a design agency established in 2016.

Stealth Internet (owned by Obble) started as a rural internet service provider in 1997 and have some very affordable shared web hosting and reseller web hosting plans.

DreamIT Host shared web hosting and reseller hosting plans have now been added.

There is a choice of DirectAdmin or cPanel plans (the DirectAdmin plans are more affordable) and a choice of Sydney, Melbourne or Auckland data centers.

Note that only the cPanel plans have been added to this website as this provides a better comparison with the other hosting plans.

DreamIT Host was launched in 2016 and offers affordable, high-performance web, email and reseller hosting to Australian businesses.

These plans are great value for money especially considering the NVMe storage which boosts performance considerably.

22/09/2022 Update:

Clickhost business, managed WordPress, premium and reseller web hosting plans have now been added.

Clickhost was started in 2021 by some of the Netvirtue staff after Nexigen Digital acquired NetVirtue.

These plans are good value for money considering the NVMe storage which boosts performance considerably.

Let me know who else you think I should check out and who else you think should be listed here.

Remember I only consider hosting companies for this website that are 100% Australian owned and operated.


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 15 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.
