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?

Hope that makes sense - thanks.

You're looking at paying at least ten times for hosting within NZ for an equivalent package in the US.

You do not have to have your site hosted in NZ in order to have a domain name.

Unless you want to use NZ hosting for patriotic or ideological reasons, you would be better off using an American hosting company.

I would recommend you use for the domain name hosting, and for web hosting.

Siteground offer 40GB of space and 900 GB of monthly traffic for USD 4.95 per month. You won't get anything anywhere near that in NZ.

If you do a Google search on NZ hosting companies, you often see plans that charge around NZD 25 for pathetic amounts of space and bandwidth like 150MB/3GB.

Apart from being cheap, Siteground have excellent customer service. I have used them to host a number of clients' sites and I have had no problems with them at all.
