I'm looking to build a website for my parents so they can market their house overseas (on top of the usual channels).  Bearing in mind that I can't anticipate the potential bandwidth usage, does anyone have recommendations for a web hosting service that would accommodate this site, including domain name?  Will it matter overly if it's a NZ host or overseas?  All going well, I imagine the "uptime" would only be a few months so probably a "by the month" service would be best.

I've had awesome service and uptime from
Strange name, but great hosting company.  They have an open forum and very quick support times.

If you're looking for a NZ webhosting with unmetered traffic, take a look at Break LTD they do server co-location too.
