I am creating a dynamic website (with a db attached). I have been looking at openhost and other hosting companies but i dont really know what disk space a small website with a connected db would need, i do need one that has MySQL.

I would love it if  someone could clear that part up for me, but i also would like some recommendations for good nz local web hosting sites.

freeparking
openhost
webbase
webnostingnz

These are a few that ive looked into but i dont know if there any good

I have experience only with freeparking and openhost, and both are pretty good.

Here is a thread about the last one http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=48&topicid=61208  you be the judge. On that , their are posts recommending different companies. Also you do get what you pay for, so if you don't pay much, you can't really expect much in terms of support and reliability. Also some of the cheap ones will overload the servers, so database websites may load very slowly. The best way to find a webhost, is to be recommended by a friend.


Also bear in mind that many web hosts are simply hostgater resellers.

You should email the webhost first to find out how good their support is, and how quickly they respond to your question. Many will not provide any after hours support and are closed in the weekends. If they take more than 8 hours to respond during business hours, I would forget about them, as it maybe a part time business.

How much are you wanting to spend?


Also you should note that with many companies, the email diskspace is also shared with the website diskspace.

I would avoid any company trading on 'cheap' and 'budget' for a business website, you want top reliability. Ask them if they have an alertrar site server monitoring log for you to look at.

100Mb would probably suffice, a little hard to guess to be honest.
