Digital Pacific are great for Australians
Michael Galea, Managing Director - EnvironArc Pty Ltd,

I have been using Digital Pacific for a stack of domain names and site hosting for about 15 years. It's great to talk to an Australian who knows what I am talking about, the staff are always helpful and quick, I like the fact... More that the systems are in Australia, and not in the back room of some Chinese or Bangladesh restaurant storeroom, they are very professional, their fees are not the cheapest but the ongoing backups and their quality of service wins me every time. I will stay with them as long as they are around. Well done guys, keep up the great work. Less
I am fully satisfied

Your sites will be in good hands, dudes. Personally, I'm a fully satisfied Hostwinds customer. They are rock. High 99% uptime and very fast servers. I developed my Wordpress Website with optimum speed using the available soft... More aculous addon in the Cpanel. Well done! Less

Seem disinterested

I have recently set up a new company and have had issues emailing potential clients using bigpond. This has been going for near 2 weeks now with the issue not being rectified. I also contacted the postmaster at bigpond in rel... More ation to the issue and I can say (much to my surprise) he has been brilliant, responding quickly and outlining what he requires to try and make an assessment. The problem is however every time he responds immediately Digital Pacific let the ticket sit for days until I call and give them a rocket again. It moves forward and then goes back into the same cycle. I have advised them that this could be costing me a lot of money which in the infancy of operation is not what I need, but it doesn't seem to matter to them.!! I will see what the office of fair trading (wishing their was some form of ombudsman) can do, but seriously horrible experience and now looking for my money back and alternative reliable options.

Nickle and Diming

I signed up for $10.99 per month because of the good reviews. My first month was discounted 25%. Then I notice that they are charging me $3 extra per month just to have backups. That is just plain nickle and diming. BACKUP SHOULD BE INCLUDED!
