You may have heard of the term WordPress hosting in New Zealand. But what does that really mean? And what are the options available to you for hosting your site? You may not know about Cloudways at the moment, but you’ll be glad you read this blog post on WordPress hosting in New Zealand!
Do you want to be super fast? Do you want more flexibility? Are you looking to get more personalization options with your website? Well, there is one host on the market that has it all: WPhost. Well, in this article I am going to cover everything about WPhost and show you exactly why it is the best hosting option for your WordPress blog. First of all, “New Zealand.” As a part of the Commonwealth of Nations, it’s no surprise that NZ is a great place for new businesses, especially budding entrepreneurs.
WordPress is a very popular and powerful platform. It is also widely used by most bloggers and small businesses. However, it takes a lot of resources to run your blog or to power your small business website. This can be quite expensive depending on the quality of your hosting provider.

Managed WordPress Hosting
Managed WordPress hosting can be defined as a hosting environment that is specially optimized to provide the best experience for running WordPress sites. In this setup, the web host takes care of many of the technical aspects of running your site, including software and security updates. With managed WordPress hosting, you don’t need to worry about any of the technical aspects of your site, allowing you to focus 100% on creating great content.
Managed WordPress hosting is a relatively new service, and it’s not always clear what’s included in it. Here are some of the services you can expect from a managed WordPress host:
Automatic software updates
Automatic security patches
Dedicated customer support
Scalability (for when your site grows)
Managed WordPress hosts don’t typically offer one-click installs of the software, but they do take care of most of everything else.
Migrating your website to a new host can be a scary thought, especially if you’re not too tech-savvy. The good news is that WordPress has made it easy to move your site to any hosting company. Here’s how:
If you have an existing WordPress site, export your data to import into your new WordPress site.
To export your data, log in to the WordPress Administration Panel (Dashboard) with the credentials you created when installing WordPress. Under Dashboard, click Tools and select Export. Select what you want to export. If you want to move everything, select All Content and click Download Export File.
If you don’t have an existing site or want to start fresh on your new host, skip this step.
Free SSL Certificates
Your WordPress hosting plan comes with a free SSL certificate. We use Let’s Encrypt which is a free, automated, and open certificate authority (CA) that provides Transport Layer Security (TLS) certificates for your website.
If you’re not sure what an SSL certificate is, it’s a small data file that encrypts information between users’ web browsers and your website. It ensures that all information transmitted to and from your website remains private and secure over the internet.
In July 2018 Google announced that Chrome 68 would start marking all HTTP sites as ‘not secure’. This means any website without an SSL certificate will have this shown in the browser’s address bar.
Chrome is the world’s most popular browser so it’s important to make sure your website looks professional to visitors using this browser.
Your hosting plan includes an SSL certificate which gives you the HTTPS:// prefix in the address bar of Chrome.
Speed & Performance
When it comes to website speed, performance, and uptime there are many factors that can affect it.
Hosting provider and server location
Website content and design
Themes and plugins you use
Content Delivery Networks (CDN)
Backups and security plug-ins
External scripts like Google Analytics or Facebook Pixel.
In this article, we will focus on the hosting provider part of it, what kind of hosting you should use for your WordPress website and the importance of server location.
