NetoriginVentraIP

VentraIP has acquired Netorigin.

Netorigin clients will be transitioned to one of the VentraIP brands and the Netorigin brand will be retired.

It is good to see that Netorigin customers will still be looked after by a local company but it is a little concerning that the pool of locally owned hosting companies seems to be shrinking.

You can find out more about the acquision on the VentraIP blog.

The Netorigin plans have now been removed from this website.

Yes!

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.
