WP Server

When your online business is your business: speed matters.

WP Server offers premium performance, improved security and greater flexibility for your WordPress / WooCommerce sites.

Serious sites need serious hosting!

WooCommerce and many popular plugins and themes need VPS hosting — at a minimum — to deliver consistently low response times under high-load.

Managed by us, right here in New Zealand.

We tested them all: Digital Ocean, AWS LightSail, Linode, Vultr, Rackspace, UpCloud.

Honestly, they’re all pretty great. But after months of careful testing – for our Kiwi customers – Vultr was the clear winner.

Vultr is a world-leader in cloud computing services, with a robust network and stellar uptime record.
