Anchor – Magento and online retail hosting specialists

Anchor provides managed web hosting services for business critical websites and web applications. Full service and fully accountable, we expertly manage your hosting - right up to your code.


“You know who the good crewmen are when the storm comes.”

Managed web hosting re-defined.

When you bring your website or web application to Anchor, you’ll soon see that we’re unlike other hosting companies.

The first thing we’ll do is to identify the most suitable platform for your workloads (shared, Linux VPS, dedicated, cloud servers – or a hybrid cloud design) and work with your developer to understand the needs of your site or application. We’ll then delve deeply into the build, tuning and optimising each layer of the application stack to get your site running better than ever and giving your customers the best possible experience.

What about autoscaling you say? During periods of intense traffic or load, our configuration management systems can trigger a burst into the cloud to keep your costs down, your site responsive, your customers happy and the orders flowing in.

Managed virtual server hosting.

Anchor’s virtual server platform is a highly reliable and flexible solution for hosting your website or application. You can upgrade (or downgrade) CPU performance, storage and memory with a simple reboot. If you’re looking for an affordable web hosting platform that can grow with your business, you’ve just found it.

  • Virtual Servers are perfectly suited to sites with medium to high levels of traffic that need flexibility
  • Simple, fixed price monthly billing means no surprises
  • Enterprise servers with hardware virtualisation & dedicated resources = awesome performance
  • Green web hosting – work with an ethical hosting company that cares about the planet
  • Pay-as-you-grow. Scale up and down or in and out with the use of a load balancer
  • Outstanding uptime – no need for complex hosting deployments to achieve better than 99.9% availability

“The art of the sailor is to leave nothing to chance.”

99.9% uptime guarantee

Our financially-backed service level agreement (SLA) is clear and simple – there are no catches. Having staff in both the US and Australia means we can also provide true 24×7 “follow the sun” support too.

Rapid provisioning

We’ll work with your developers to build a fully managed web hosting solution and with Puppet, automate an optimised application stack built to suit the needs of your website or application – typically within 3-7 working days.

Flexible terms

Month to month, 12 & 24 month agreements can be arranged to suit your needs and your budget. What about cloud servers? Flexible billing for our management services means you’ll only pay for what you use.

Scalable infrastructure design

We can do really big infrastructure, think 10,000 requests/second and one million+ users. We have real world experience deploying and managing large, complex sites. We know what works – and what doesn’t.

Anchor’s managed hosting has earned the trust of 3500+ customers, big and small:

Don’t just take our word for it!

"After a few conversations with Anchor, it was clear their team was a phenomenal fit for TestFlight. We would love to take credit for everything.. but the reality is that Anchor brought a wealth of experience to the table. They took our stack, analysed it and came up with a plan of attack which involved some fantastic technologies only well-bearded individuals should touch."

− Trystan Kosmynka, co-founder and CTO,

"We have a strong brand & reputation that is built around trust and integrity. With Anchor, we've found a hosting partner that we can trust to keep our online services running quickly, securely and reliably. They're responsive, knowledgable and a pleasure to deal with. I'd recommend Anchor without reservation."

"It's fair to say we're now Anchor's biggest fans!"
