New Zealand hosting provider Create Hosting focuses on Magento hosting, but it also offers WordPress and other CMS/e-commerce hosting options. However, its prices are higher than average, and I failed to secure a pre-sales support response.

Overview

Create Hosting

Since the start of its journey in 2002, Create Hosting Ltd has offered Magento, WordPress, and other hosting solutions to customers in several countries. In addition to hosting, you can get domain services and SSL certificates.

Create Hosting’s website supports the English language.

Features and Ease of Use

Create Hosting’s services include five shared hosting packages (two Magento, two WordPress, and one PrestaShop) plus one fully managed VPS package for Magento. You can also get custom-built dedicated servers for Magento, and reseller solutions for WordPress and Magento.

With the WordPress Hosting packages, you get:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • 250 MB to 1 GB disk space
  • 1 GB to 5 GB bandwidth
  • 1 GB email storage
  • Plesk Onyx control panel
  • WordPress toolkit
  • PHP
  • AWStats, Webalizer
  • Advanced spam and virus detection, plus daily malware scanning
  • Daily backups

The WordPress packages include zero-click installation or one-click installation; the former meaning the company will preinstall WordPress, and the latter meaning you’ll do it (easily) yourself.

If you’re into e-commerce, you might choose one of the Magento Hosting options instead. And for something more specialist, you could go for the Customer Hosting that allows you to use a range of applications such as PrestaShop (for e-commerce), Drupal (for content management), Joomla (another CMS), or osCommerce (another e-commerce program).

Create Hosting supports the Cloudflare CDN that improves page loading speeds and helps protect your website against some kinds of cyberattacks.

Pricing and Support

Create Hosting’s WordPress hosting prices are higher than average. You can pay in U.S. dollars, British pounds, or New Zealand dollars by bank transfer, PayPal, or credit card, on monthly, semi-annual, or annual billing cycles. Annual billing affords you a 10% discount.

The WordPress, Magento, and VPS packages come with a 30-day money-back guarantee that gives you a month to request a refund if you’re not entirely happy.

You should be able to summon Create Hosting’s 24/7 technical support team or otherwise contact the company by telephone, ticket, email, or online contact form. Unfortunately, my test support ticket went unanswered. If you have to resort to self-support, you’ll find a well-populated knowledge base:
