Hosting Locale



We place the power of big tech in your hands by combining the power of business, web & social networking tools  technologies under one roof.

Our fully managed hosting platform comes featured packed means there’s nothing for you to install allowing you to focus on what’s important to you.

No advertising, no AI, no selling of data, no spying or no backdoor access to private information as that’s a big tech thing, not us.

Web Hosting With A Difference

Hosting Locale isn’t your average web host you find on the market as we believe in quality over quantity.

We don’t try and sell you gigabytes of space you simply won’t use and let you get on with it. Instead our fully managed hosting platform takes care of all the things you much rather not worry about.

We keep our servers local because that’s where 99% of both yours and our clients and visitors are from. Nor do we host your sites on servers in far away lands to maximize profits which are covered by different laws & regulations to New Zealand.

As we take care of all maintenance & technical side of things the more time you spend concentrating on things that matter to you. Plus, if you ever need help, our 24/7 local support service is there for you when you need it.

No ads, AI, bots, censorship, data profiteering, monitoring, snooping, trackers or back doors & backhanders, ever.

That’s a big tech thing, not us…

Web Hosting Comparisons

Self, Semi & Fully Managed Hosting

Whats The Difference?

Self Managed

Ideal For Professionals

Most web hosting companies offer storage space packaged up with a number of other services.  Whilst they provide tools to set these service up yourself and install a collection of different content management systems (CMS) for you, that’s basically where the buck stops with them.  They provide zero help & support when it comes to managing the 1000’s of bespoke customer websites on their servers, that’s your responsibility not theirs.

They also sell you Gigabytes of data 99% of website owners will never use.  A typical CMS with the essential plugins and a few dozen optimized images requires 250-500Mb of storage space.  Unless you’re a blogger or running an eCommerce site, only then do you need more space.

Technical Knowledge Required

Semi Managed

Ideal For Intermediates

Web agencies & developers offer web hosting services to their clients and often take responsibility over the management of the content website.  They either use their own servers or they simply rent storage space from one of the self managed hosting providers.   They’re usually responsible for all CMS, plugin and theme updates and paying the license fee’s for premium plugins and themes.

These companies usually charge a premium as each contract arrangement with their clients can be different.  Whilst help & support is provided by the agency or developer since they built the websites for their clients and know everything about it, whether they provide anything above this will differ from agency and developer.

Technical Knowledge Required

Fully Managed

ls For Beginners

There’s nothing for you to install, update or maintain as this is all managed for you.  Their hosting plans often differ based on storage space requirements and the features you want to use. i.e you pay more if you want more than a basic website and wish to run a eCommerce site.  Without the need of too much technical knowledge, its usually a case of you having to learn the ins and outs of their personalized management console which differs from one provider to another.

Again, most of these providers offer Gb’s of storage space that most people will never ever get close to using and thus a moot selling point.  Locale’s fully managed hosting environment runs WordPress which is the most commonly used CMS in the world.

Technical Knowledge Required
