I have never heard of that provider, so can't provide an opinion sorry.

However, I have used DigitalOcean and Vultr, which are both very popular and reliable.

Have a look at their plans and see if they suit:

I always have and always will recommend Linode as a VPS provider. They're very fast, well priced and have excellent support:

Please note, this is a referral link. If you don't want to give me a free months worth of VPS for signing up then just go straight to their website.

I have a $10/mo host + their backup service (handy when doing maintenance as you can snapshot beforehand and restore if things go wrong) and host around 20 sites. One of them is which actually loads rather quick despite not having Cloudflare in front of it.

Linode and Digital Ocean would be the best (reputation) non-NZ choice.

That said.

Using and supporting an NZ-based service is a good thing to do, and for that, I'd suggest you check out Sitehost.

It all comes down to what you are using it for? Is it mission critical? Are you hosting business websites etc on it? What is most important to you, price, support, reliability?

I'm a little late to the party, but I have a VPS with IntoVPS and also one at DigitalOcean.  Both are excellent.  I've raised a few tickets with IntoVPS (nothing major - one was a relocation request, the other was a kernel panic on their box) and they've always been very fast to resolve (IE within half an hour for both) So far I haven't had to raise one with DigitalOcean.
