Web Drive Celebrates 17 Years in Business

Web Drive, New Zealand’s #1 Hosting Service, Celebrates 17 Years in Business

March 3, 2014 – It’s the classic story of high tech entrepreneurship. In 1997, five friends in Albany pooled together their money - $500 between them - and launched Web Drive (www.webdrive.co.nz), beginning a journey that would see them grow into New Zealand’s biggest web-hosting company, with over 25,000 customers managing 100,000 domains. It is also New Zealand’s only ICANN accredited domain registrar.

Web Drive employs a staff of 50 experts who work together to ensure quality and efficiency. Shaun Price, Marketing Manager for Web Drive said, “We hope that when Kiwis think of web hosting, whether traditional or cloud-based, they think of Web Drive. Since Web Drive employs more web-hosting experts than any other company we’re confident in our ability to deliver high quality technical support and expertise.” Growing from humble beginnings, Web Drive knows that employees are one of the greatest resources so it’s not surprising they were a finalist in the NZ Hi-Tech Awards as Employer of Choice.

Web Drive offers a range of services. Web hosting begins at only $15 (plus GST) per month. Server hosting starts at $0.99 per day. Domain names are available for as low as $16.50 per year, depending on volume. And as more businesses move to the security and reliability of cloud-based hosting, Web Drive has responded with a cloud service hosting plan that starts at $0.99 per day and features on-demand scalability, zero hardware risk and 24/7 support.
