See what our customers are saying about us!
VentraIP Australia has been committed to delivering the best customer experience since we started in 2009 and here are some customers who agree.
Hands down the best hosting provider I've ever dealt with. Every time we've ever had an issue (often due to bad wordpress plugins, etc. and not necessarily their fault/problem) their team has it fixed for us within minutes. I'll never use another provider again!
I needed to get hosting and a webpage up and running super fast. The VentraIP Australia team, made it so easy and stress free. They were there for every step and supported me through the live chat process. I was able to get up and running really fast, and I have the reliability of them keeping things like Wordpress up to date, without me having to worry about it.
Excellent WordPress performance. Good value for money. Great support. Migration from previous cPanel hosting service to VentraIP was quick, smooth, and simple.

Frequently asked questions about this page.
What is WordPress Hosting?
WordPress Hosting is a specific website hosting designed to optimise WordPress websites with enhanced features, increased security, and simplified management.
What if I need more resources than the prescribed plan?
The Switch promotion offers our WordPress hosting plan, which has 10GB of SSD storage, 200% CPU and 2GB of memory. (among features like a free SSL certificate) If you need more than the provided resources, upgrades are available during any stage after signup. However, this will cease the switch promotion, and the new plan's cost will be payable once the upgrade has been finalised.
Will my site experience downtime as part of the switch?
Setting up your account with ourselves, creating your plan and even migrating your site data itself will incur no downtime whatsoever. Downtime can occur when the DNS on your domain name is changed to load the content from our servers rather than your current host. DNS propagation can take 4-8 hours but is often a lot faster. During this step, you can experience some downtime though most changes are seamless from one server to another.
When will I receive a reply from my switch application?
Applications will be processed by our Solutions team, who operate 9-5 Monday to Friday. Our team strives to reply to you within 1-2 business days to proceed with the switching process. If you submit your switch application on a Friday, you should expect a reply Monday for example.
How long will it take to move my website?
Migrations will be booked in as soon as we have the necessary login credentials to get your data moved across. These can be submitted anytime once logged into your VIPControl with a Migration Request. in most cases, the migration will occur as early as overnight the same night your switch request is actioned and the details submitted. If the time slot you have requested has already been booked, you will be moved to the following night or another date of your choosing.
When does my free hosting expire?
VentraIP Australia will match any remaining pre-paid period of your existing hosting service from the previous provider for up to 12 months free. The free hosting period will be rounded up to the nearest time frame of 1, 3, 6 or 12 months, based on your service expiry date. Our Solutions team will manually review every submission to ensure the correct free hosting period has been applied before approving your switch application.
