This notion that because you’re in Australia, you have to host in Australia is simply not true.

You can host anywhere so long as you satisfy three core fundamentals.

1. Uptime/reliabilty
2. Speed
3. Support

I host my own site in the US as do all of my clients. The reason? Because most hosting companies in this country are rubbish. It’s expensive and the support is awful. Not to mention reliability.

John,

I’m glad for you that your experience has been good, however every time I have checked out an overseas hosting site, the loading speed has been noticeably slower than an Aus based server, and the stats I mentioned earlier are typical of my experience.
