After dealing with countless hosting company's, AusPing is by far the best hosting I have ever seen. There packages are extremely affordable (quite possibly the cheapest hosting you can get), and yet the performance is outstanding.
I was also impressed with the customer service. They helped me out right from the start - and could answer of my questions perfectly.
On a whole, companies like AusPing don't come around often I promise you. I'd highly recommend them to anyone :)
