I’ve looked at lots of hosting options for Magento in Australia and the most common problem is they don’t offer the PHP memory requirements that Magento needs to run efficiently.
I also trialed running Magento at MediaTemple in the US but it was just too slow from Australia (4 hours to upload all the files via FTP and about 30mins when I uploaded to my server in Oz - although this one didn’t have the memory)
Does anyone know where I could host Magento in Australia on a shared server? I have about 6 stores to set up over the next few months and want somewhere reliable.
Thanks a lot!
