Kiwihosting.net is good, they are as local as you can get it. In the short time I have been with them they have been great. Or you can look around on webhostingtalk.com

www.openhost.co.nz is another. Albany based I think. Pricing pretty good for NZ hosting.

Have you asked if you can add SSL support for a nominal fee without going to a higher plan? They seem like a decent bunch.

You are unlikely to get web hosting with a NZ company with those specifications, especially not with a dedicated IP address, and one that has really good reliability and support. You do get what you pay for. I pay about $14 for my web host for those specs, and have been using them for 3 years with no problems, although I don't get a dedicated IP address, but I do get a lot more email addresses and access to their shared secure certificate.

Dedicated IP is just for ssl but if it is not needed than that is fine is well.

Sure is. Different pricing structures from memory. Webdrive provide sponsored hosting for an organisation I belong to. OpenHost are the company I deal with myself. No complaints at all from me, with either of them!
