I'm in the process of getting a "small" website hosted on a New Zealand-based server (a particular requirement I definitely need).

Obviously the costs are higher being NZ and not USA based, but what would be a rough estimate of a fair monthly charge for:

Unlimited traffic?
2.5 GB?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hey Mike

Take a look at Web drive: http://www.webdrive.co.nz/hosting/index.php & http://help.webdrive.co.nz/?artID=27 they offer unmetered space and traffic & there servers are in NZ (Auckland) for about $30.00 not including GST

I Hope this helps :)

If not here are a few links:

openhost.co.nz would be worth looking at too

Webdrive is their premium hosting service, while openhost is their budget offering, as Webdrive brought out openhost earlier this year.

There are also other NZ based providers who offer unmetered traffic, you may want to check this link http://netguide.co.nz/Home/Shopping/ISPNetDirectory/Domainnamesandhosting/tabid/114/Default.aspx

Are there any shell(ssh) account providers in NZ? I'd like to set up a IRCD locally but don't want to purchase a dedicated.

I doubt it as SSH isn't really suitable for shared hosting systems, from what I have heard.

Openhost supports a (very, very) limited shell account. Something like Dreamhost has a full shell.

Are you referring to this site dreamhost dot co dot nz ?

Click 'supprt' and you get

Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80004005'

Could not find installable ISAM.

/support.asp, line 5


Not a good look, and they don't look to be NZ located servers either.

Why the specific requirement of NZ based?

Because the rest of the world is populated with war mongers, Religious fanataics, Muslims, and poofters

All we have are the greens.

I can pretty much guarantee that shared hosting providers wont provide/allow IRC(D) because its resource intensive. You may want to look at getting a NZ VPS Account.
