Faster CPU speeds than the big names

Sysbench testing shows our High Performance server's CPU easily outpaces a set of 2-core competitors from AWS, Vultr, Linode (Akamai), and DigitalOcean. Our latency was lowest, too.

Developers Love SiteHost

We have multiple sites on SiteHost and have very pleased with both performance and especially those few times when we have needed to query or get an issue sorted. Having dealt with multiple hosting companies both in NZ and all round the world I do very much rate SiteHost and have recommended them to others. ★★★★★

AlphaOne have been with SiteHost since day one. They managed our production servers except few that we manage it our own. Somehow, one of our servers broke down and I spent almost 4 hours troubleshooting it and I gave up because I have other things to fix. I asked SiteHost help. Not hours later, but minutes later they emailed and boom! Issue fixed! That quick! So glad it's fixed before the sunrise or else my team can't work until our Gitlab server is fixed. Thank you SiteHost. Game changer! ★★★★★

Over the decade (and more) that I've been using SiteHost, they've not only provided consistently good service, they've also made it a primary focus, even while growing their business, technology base, and services. I've not only received fast and friendly service every time I've contacted them but they are one of the very few technology companies I deal with who provide knowledgeable staff who can actually help. ★★★★★

How the half price HPVS deal works

There's not a lot of small print, so here's everything you need to know to get a super-fast HPVS half price for a year. If there's anything you want to clarify, just ask.

1/ Come to SiteHost from a competitor. If you're renting a server from any provider we compete with, whether it's here in New Zealand or overseas, then you're all good. ("We" includes our sister brand, MyHost.)

We're looking for anything: AWS EC2s, DO Droplets, or bare metal from Bob's Discount Rusty Boxes. They all count.

2/ Pick any HPVS plan, and get moving. It's never too early to create your SiteHost account, pick your HPVS plan, and give us a few minutes to spin it up.

Once that's done, you're ready to make your move across to SiteHost. And we'll be standing by to cut your bills in half. Enjoy the speed - and the great discount.

3/ Show us your server bills from the last three months. It's not that we want to pry into your finances - but we do need to know that you haven't been spinning up new servers just to qualify for this deal.

All you need to do is get in touch with our sales team. They'll have a quick check, lock in your discount, and then delete anything that we don't need to keep.

Common questions

In short, the difference is speed. Our regular VPS platform delivers enough computing performance for most business needs, at a lower price. The platform is built on incredibly reliable, high-quality hardware and a battled hardened technology stack we've been running for well over a decade. High Performance Virtual Servers are built for intensive computing. High-spec hardware includes Ryzen 9 CPUs (which are so new that they have only been available in our Dedicated Servers for a few months), and the platform is managed via a newly-built virtualisation layer. It’s an entirely different platform built for a more demanding audience.
NVMe (non-volatile memory express) is a faster form of data storage. We offer NVMe as standard because we don't think anyone should be slowed down by their hard drive. Technically, NVMe is the transfer protocol for accessing data quickly from a solid-state drives (SSD).
24/7 Management is a highly recommended optional extra, especially if your server will be hosting critical applications or websites where uptime is important. Problems arise, downtime happens, and you always have something else to be doing rather than worrying about infrastructure. Who would respond at 3am if there's an urgent problem, especially if you don't have your own dedicated system engineers? With 24/7 Management, you know the answer.
We have an uptime guarantee of 99.9% across our Cloud Container, VPS and VDS platforms. We also offer comprehensive SLAs as part of our 24/7 Management. You can read more about our uptime guarantee and getting a full SLA in our knowledge base.
Yes. If you're not happy with your hosting simply cancel it within 7 days and you won't be charged. Note that you will need to provide valid credit card details when you open your account.
Windows will be coming to our High Performance Virtual Server platform soon. For now, we offer standard Windows Virtual Servers.
