Some suggestions for people looking for web hosting for New Zealand. These would also work equally well for Australian website too.

I would normally have SiteGround in a list of web hosting options as they are excellent web hosts these days but unfortunately do not service New Zealand.

VentraIP –

Australian based servers, so still pretty close.

I asked VentraIP support about NZ, and they said NZ is the only country outside of Australia that they allow customers from, so that is a good sign too.

  • they include email if you want to use theirs much like siteground does.
  • has the best 24/7 phone support I have ever experienced.
  • I have several clients and a few of my own websites on their hosting with no issues.

Kinsta –

Fast but not cheap web hosting using the google cloud platform so servers are generally close enough to be fast.

WP Engine –

Cloudways –
