Default hosting for small wordpress site

Hi guys,

I have a client who has a wordpress site that she is looking to move over from Crazy Domains. This is not something I ever really have to look at in the course of my work, so I actually don't really know who is good these days.

Looking for something secure, with good uptime and with good customer service. Australian based would be preferred, but this is not a dealbreaker. She is not pulling huge amounts of traffic or doing anything terribly sophisticated so a shared hosting plan probably the go.

I recommend VentraIP. They are inexpensive and has a good record.

Most of my clients with small-ish websites are using Hostgator. None of them have ever reported any issues and have never had any problems with customer service or down times etc.

Add Hawkhost to the two mentioned above, and you probably have the 3 most highly regarded budget hosts around.

I have two servers I use. One based in Perth, the other in the US. I've been providing webhosting services for several years and concentrate almost completely on Wordpress for clients. Let me know if I can assist.

Yeah, sure thing. Let me know the details and I'll pass it on.

Hostgator is cheap and fairly reliable. If this is a Australia targeted blog page speed might suffer a little bit as their servers are based in Dallas, TX. However if it is a simple site this won't be a big issue.

Question (and this is based on my own experience as a hosting reseller for my clients before deciding it wasn't the game for me): Do you offer 24/7 support if a hosted site goes down, or email stops working?

I am running two wordpress websites on bluehost.com. Support is surprisingly good, while US$4.95/mo looks like a killer deal. No speed issues.
