Whats a good ISP for Web Hosting ? Recommend anyone ?

You mean ISP to use as host or Host/Domain companies like Domainz?

Hosting via an ISP is usually OTT in pricing....Check out Freeparking, Webbase to name a couple of NZ companies. There's a few NZ "hosts" that just resell hosting plans from overseas servers to which can work out a bit cheaper.

Like Yahoo Xtra.

In my experience I say go global. Stay away from the new zealand hosting companies they charge an arm and leg for average hosting. Godaddy.com offer cheap hosting

Kiwiwebhost Costs me 13.47 a month, they have a cheaper plan for home based websites too. All of it is in NZ, servers, admin, the lot. Very reliable, good helpdesk. be wary of servers based overseas.

I would have to go with Kiwiwebhost as well. It works out to be about $100 a year with the domain name included. Cheap as chips; no problems at all!

i use [http://www.freeparking.co.nz/] & [http://www.webhostingnz.com/] here.

Ive got a few under www.dolbyweb.co.nz they seem to be good

_There are many available - don't just go on price, ask around, Try Google, like if you wanted christchurch web hosting search for that, and go for the most listed result on the front page.

If you're not very good with web stuff, go with a company called 24/7 hosting. they're bloody good with support and can do anything you need

Hostgator is slow since its based in the states. i used to be a reseller for them. didnt like it. plus people who know a hell of a lot more about hosting than me say its quite bad too
