WordPress Hosting Australia
“Hosts ain’t hosts”. So use WordPress Hosting Australia.
When it comes to hosting your business’s website, can you afford downtime, or the embarrassment of your website being hacked? With other hosts, you’ll need to log a support ticket, or call an overseas call centre and wait… and wait… and wait…
That’s why businesses choose to WordPress Hosting Australia.
When you host with Pepper, you can call (or email if you prefer) our Sydney office and we’ll answer questions and help you with any hosting issues.
Why is WordPress website security important?
The software (core) of a WordPress website, plus any additional third-party plugins needs to be updated to protect it from malicious attacks. Just like other pieces of tech such as your phone or computer, these updates are essential to patch vulnerabilities that can allow attackers in.
Websites are that much more vulnerable because by design, they’re public facing and accessible by everyone.
Who’s trying to hack my website?
Typically, it’s not MI6, the KGB or a competitor.
There are millions or automated programs (scripts) that trawl the Internet sniffing out outdated websites that are vulnerable to attack. These scripts automatically attempt to breach your website or they report back their findings to their owners.
With access to your website, attackers will try anything from re-directing your users to other third-party websites, installing malicious code to infect users machines, create spam bots, or just outright vandalise your website.
How do I stop these automated attacks?
You need to regularly update your WordPress Core and third-party plugins to patch any holes that can be taken advantage of.
Or, you can use our Managed WordPress Hosting service and we’ll take care of it for you.
But you’re more expensive than others
Yes – we’re not Go Daddy or Crazy Domains who try to host millions of websites. We only host who and what we can support – and politely turn down anything we can’t handle.

Help! My Website’s been hacked!
It’s OK, we can help.
Call us straight away, give us as much information as you can about where you registered your Domain name and who currently hosts your website and we’ll handle the rest.
We can get most typical websites cleaned and back online within a day or two.
We’ll even put up a great looking, temporary landing page to cover the ugly hack while we do our work.
Isn't WordPress free? Why do I need to pay?
Yes. WordPress is Open Source, free and extremely popular.
But, you need a computer (or a server) to host your website. You can either setup and configure your own server to host your website – or you can pay a hosting company (like us) to host the website on your behalf.
Where are you located?
Our Office and team are in Sydney’s Potts Point.
We use and host our clients’ websites in data centres in Sydney and Perth. I guess you could say, we’ve got Australia covered… so WordPress Hosting Australia kinda’ fits.
So, you update my website content for me?
We can, but that’s not included as part of our hosting. Our hosting ensures the availability and security of your website.
As part of our Managed WordPress Hosting, we update WordPress Core and most popular third-party plugins to ensure the security of your website.
This however doesn’t include updating content, copy, images, functionality etc. on your website. If you need a hand with that, we’d love to help, but its an additional service.
What uptime do you guarantee?
For typical clients, we don’t offer an uptime service level agreement (SLA). If you specifically require this, get in touch and we’ll let you know what we can offer.
Unofficially, our reporting shows uptimes of our clients websites in excess of 99.9%.
Our services are redundant, in data centres with controlled climate, access restrictions, redundant Internet and power.
How do I migrate my website from another host?
We can help you with that, usually for free.
If it’s a typical WordPress website with a typical host, we can give you a hand to transfer from their servers to ours as a complimentary onboarding service.
We ask that you have all account username and passwords on hand to help keep this process as efficient as possible.
