We ensure your website hosting will be built on the best infrastructure, with incredible speed, and have a world-class security system, so you can enjoy total peace of mind.
A Decent Web Hosting Company Matters!
Don’t be fooled by cheap hosting providers for your main business marketing tool (your website).Often these guys cram thousands of websites onto a single server – which can cause all sorts of havoc.
Simple Pixels only uses top-level hosting for your website that provides maximum speed and maximum uptime.
Our hosting solutions are world-class and use a variety of functions to get your website loading even quicker than you would expect (multiple caching levels, compression, optimisation and content delivery networks for those interested in the tech).
We combine this with world-class security mechanisms to stop your website from getting hacked. We won’t be dishonest; any website can be hacked. If the government can be – we can be too.
Side note – it’s very hard to continue to talk about hosting without going into a lot of tech babble, so if your eyes start to glaze over, skip to Our Work. However, the measures we put in place (monitoring, backups, SSL certificates & web application firewalls) mean that you have the best possible protection.
What's in A Name?
Believe it or not, the name of your domain (e.g. www.simplepixels.com.au) actually matters when it comes to Google ranking. We will guide you through choosing the correct domain name and set up your DNS servers (another tech term) so they provide maximum availability globally. No, we don’t expect you to understand any of this stuff, but we do – and that is what is important.

Government Website Change of Hosting
A local government web system recently switched to hosting with Simple Pixels from their former hosting company located in Brisbane. The organisation had 6-8 users who often edited pages on the site each day simultaneously.
With our implementation of a dedicated VPS, caching stack, and tweaks, we managed to significantly increase both the site’s public speed and their back end editing speeds. The staff could not be happier as their days have become far more productive!
Local Wagga Agency Site Fixed After Malware Attack
In the past 12 months, we have had a number of customers come to us with hacked sites they had built and hosted elsewhere. We cleaned up the malware on these sites, moved them to our servers, and protected them from re-infection. 12 months later these sites are performing solidly, and our customers are very happy!

VPS (Virtual Private Server) Web Hosting
When you need more power than what an entry-level web hosting service can provide, you can rely on Simple Pixels. Building your website on a server that offers more power, stability, and flexibility than shared hosting and won’t incur the higher costs of dedicated hosting.
VPS hosting is the best of both worlds, with shared hosting and dedicated hosting services. Like shared hosting, VPS hosting will share your website on a server with other websites also running on it, except there are significantly fewer sites on each server. These sites will share the cost of running on the server, which is way cheaper than paying for your own dedicated server.
The importance of site uptime is critical! If your site is down, your audience won’t be able to find you or products/services. It doesn’t matter how good your products, or your business is; if your site is
down, you may as well not exist.
Most web hosts do a great job of keeping sites up and running. Even if they do everything else really well, the sites with uptime problems won’t be scored highly for SEO. It is rare not to have dramas here and sometimes it is beyond our control. However, sites that don’t address the problem quickly
are penalised accordingly.
Do You Need VPS Hosting?
VPS hosting is a reasonably priced server space that will still load pages quickly when a shared site on the same server experiences a huge traffic spike. If you desire something even more stable and secure, then you will need to incur the expense of a dedicated server.
Secure, fast and reliable hosting is critical. So is regular maintenance to ensure your website does its job as your 24/7 salesperson.
