Web hosting : Where your website will actually live.

Websites don't just float about in the ether, they actually have to exist on a computer (known as a server) somewhere. Here's what you need to know about ours...

There are a lot of web hosting companies out there! From fast-loading New Zealand data centres, to slow-loading servers overseas. No prizes for guessing what we went with.

123 Online has teamed up with Web Drive, whose servers are housed in a 'fortress of a data centre' in Albany, Auckland. We chose Web Drive because they are the best. Some of New Zealand's biggest companies (like the BNZ) chose them too.

123 Online has three VPS servers with Web Drive, especially configured to make your website one of the fastest loading in the country. And they're monitored 24x7, so we'll always have your back.
