  • Performance explained

    All sites have a performance allocation to ensure the smooth fair running of the platform. Website speeds are throttled to stay within their allocation. This prevents an overloaded website or DDOS attack on one site from degrading the performance of other sites.

    CPU The number of CPU cores your site can use
    Memory The amount of data that can be cached in memory (RAM)
    Drive speed The speed at which data can be streamed from the drive. This does not affect data cached in memory (RAM) which is not speed limited. Commonly accessed files will be cached in memory automatically. Busy websites may run faster than rarely visited sites because the site will remain cached in memory for longer.
    Entry processes The number of simultaneous dynamic requests (such as PHP scripts) your website can handle including cron jobs. Since a request should take only a fraction of a second your website can handle many more visitors than this. Poorly optimised slower performing websites will handle less requests. Static sites have no entry process restrictions.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How many websites can I host?

    You can typically host the number of websites listed on your plan without going into overage charges. Most websites use only a few hundred MB of space and less than 2 GB of traffic. Space can fill up quickly if you are hosting email as well, if you store large quantities of email consider using Google Workspace or Office 365.

  • What happens if I exceed my traffic or drive space allowance?

    Overage charges are calculated monthly and added to your next invoice. Your websites will not be stopped or suspended for overage.

  • What happens if I exceed my performance allowance?

    Your website speed will be throttled to stay within its allowance. However when sites significantly exceed their allowance, such as a DDOS attack, your visitors will see a "503 service temporarily unavailable" error. If this happens regularly under normal traffic load then you need to upgrade to a faster plan.

  • What if my website needs more performance than your fastest plan?

    That's pretty unlikely but if it happens then congratulations your website is thriving! Your needs have outgrown shared web hosting and you will need to move to a high end VPS or dedicated server.

  • Can I change my plan?

    Of course, you can upgrade or downgrade your plan whenever you need.

  • Can I cancel at any time?

    Yes of course :-)
    Cancel within 30 days and we'll give you a full refund.

  • Where are your servers located?

    Our servers are located in Auckland, New Zealand. Our data centre is managed by Voyager Internet, another 100% kiwi business

  • Why don't you offer unlimited storage or traffic?

    No company can truly offer you unlimited data since this costs them money or will eventually exceed their resources. Instead they will redefine what they mean by unlimited with some kind of vague fair use policy or put in other restrictions

  • Will my website run faster?

    Unlike the big companies we don't cram thousands of websites onto each server. We are located in New Zealand so data has less distance to travel. Our servers are high end performance machines with fast SSD drives. Why not give us a try? We offer a 30 day money back guarantee
