    Sure, and it's always good to support local businesses too.
    Anyway, I have a small hobby site, nothing too demanding, but I have used DotEasy to host it for the last probably 10 years. Never ever had a problem with them, they are responsive with their customer service, i can't remember a downtime, and quite cheap I think, and they also support MySQL and PHP.
    If you can't find anything locally, you could take a look.

    The only time I had to contact MyHost support was back in early December. Long story short, due a big screw up by me I overwrote my database with a really old backup. The MyHost support team were able to get a more recent copy of the database from their client backups and restore it for me. The response time is around 1 hour or less if you contact them via their support e-mail during office hours.

    I read Hoopla's servers aren't based in NZ so I contacted their support team and they confirmed their servers are on the West Coast of the US.

    openhost and myhost look good, thanks for the recommendations

    Has anybody had any experience with umbrellar? Their site makes their setup sound fairly good (2 data-centers in Christchurch, 1 in Auckland and 1 in Australia) but their prices are a bit more expensive than the other hosts so I'm wondering if there is any benefit in going with umbrellar over another host? Other than airpoints dollars of course
