So, Who Is Precedence?

Precedence is a full-service web development company well-known for its creative and functional website design, custom web application programming and successful internet marketing campaigns.

Complementing the range of services is a business-grade hosting facility, with primary infrastructure situated in Canberra, a purpose-built datacentre in Cairns, and additional servers in the US. Our hosting infrastructure allows us to provide business-grade web hosting, wholesale web hosting solutions, colocation facilities and other related products.

We cannot thank you enough for the professional and efficient way in which you have handled this whole process from our initial concept to design to implementation to final completion.

Our History


Nicky & Kaj started out as cityofcairns.com providing web design and search engine optimisation services to small businesses in Cairns.


2006 saw our 1st dramatic expansion! We started providing web hosting services with the acquisition of Get Web Services (and its associated brands Pixel Creative and Compverse).


In 2007 the business took over Adpower Interactive and Mangoville New Media, bringing more awesome sites into our realm.


Our 2nd dramatic move was in 2010 when we combined all our businesses into a single entity, and Precedence was born. Finally we were a unified brand and answering the phone became way less confusing.


Rutten Technology Services (RuttenTech) merged into Precedence in 2013, which expanded our product offerings to include Joomla! websites, and we also welcomed Joyce into our office.


We started off the year with a bang by warmly welcoming ImageSmith clients into our network.
