Hi Folks,

Does anyone know a reliable webhost that doesn't charge an arm and a leg for large sites (50Mb+) and can offer email and surfing as well?

Prefer Christchurch ISPs or those with an 0800 number for access.

You might want to have a look in the back of Netguide (http://www.netguide.co.nz/shopping/directory/index.php?directory=hosting&PHPSESSID=bacddf6dd13abe56dd125425f3d4b5be#listfoc us)

Hmmm, cheap & reliable? Net24 (http://www.net24.co.nz) appear to have a good network with support from both Telecom and Telstra. They are located in the Amuri buildings on Bealey Ave.

The webhost I use is not in NZ but when I was investigating for one I couldn't find a webhost in NZ that offered the options of what I get for the value. I use Ipowerweb http://www.ipowerweb.com for webhosting and email. They can't register nz domains so I have the domain name registered with Free Parking for $35/year and get them to forward request to my site at Ipower. They do not do surfing but I found it a cheaper option to use a NZ ISP for that and Ipower for the website.
All up cost for year is about $300NZ/yr max for webhosting and get 800mb storage, 40gig traffic, 400 email address's and plenty of online help and preinstalled options.
Might not be what ya after but works well for me.

Or you can pull a fast one like me.

Create 5+ free Orcon accounts with 10mb of free space each. Then link the pages by spreading them out over the 5 sites. ;)

Great for home users, would be a little dodgy if you were a business.

Apparently Orcon http://orcon.co.nz/start/

does a deal for $10 for 50mb per month. That sounds pretty resonable to me.
