Professional web hosting in Auckland - fast, stable and professionally run

Our server or yours. Administered, monitored, backed up and running smoothly. Clearfield hosts and serves more than 750 websites. Our data centre gives you a fast 500 megabit pipe, regular backups, support and a wide range of options for hosting your website or server.

We can offer you hosting on our Linux servers, your own machines, Windows boxes or cloud-based hosting. We run servers both in Auckland and overseas.


Key Services

We host content management systems, static sites, LAMP sites, Java enterprise applications, Java microservices, ESB's and Python/Perl based scripts. We host in Linux and Windows, with your choice of database(s).

If your site requires, we can set up a caching layer to make the performance really fly (using Varnish, for example).

With or without a website, we can also offer hosting and secure access to relational database management systems (RDBM's), mail servers and other services.

We also have capability to handle:

  • Domain name (DNS) registration for your website. We're a DNS registrar. We can secure your domain names for you or transfer them to/from other hosting providers.
  • Secure websites using certificates. If your site requires security, we can purchase and set up the certificates for you or automate the process using Let's Encrypt or another certificate authority.
  • Reporting. Reports to indicate how well your site is doing and how much traffic it generates.
  • VPN services to provide secure multisite networking.
  • Optimising your mail sending reputation (including SRS, DKIM, DMARC, Feedback Loops, etc.).

Back Ups

As a matter of course, we back up everything off-site, every day. We also offer clustering, replication and failover. If you wish, we will set up hot and warm standby machines to step in if your primary servers go down. You can also elect to take our 24/7 phone support.

We have monitoring in the production environment to track how your site is doing (currently we use Nagios) and send alerts to our support team if things start to look unhealthy.

During development or deployment we can offer load testing with Apache JMeter to ensure your site will stay up if it goes viral and gets super-popular.


Technical Services

AWS/Cloud System Administration

If your site is in the cloud but you still need a Linux guru to make sure it's set up correctly, tuned and supported, we have administrators that can help.

Security Checks and Audits

We do penetration testing, code review and independent security audits.

WebSphere Server Administration

IBM WebSphere and IBM MQ Series are old friends. We have a ton of experience in managing these products.


Full Stack Hosting

Complex requirements are our specialty. Websites and web apps are clever and complex. Going into production is hard with lots to think about: there are application servers, search engines, integration middleware, email, monitoring subsystems, CDNs and databases.

We provide the expertise to get your web app out to market and in front of your customers.

We'll get all of the associated, dependent technologies deployed, set up, tested, monitored and supported. We handle flexible, "full stack" hosting, with pretty much any technology stack.


Cloud Hosting

We'll set up and support your production infrastructure on Amazon, Azure or any of the other big cloud services. Alternatively, we have our own data centre in Auckland, New Zealand where we can host your server.

Not sure what you need for a robust, stable and lightning fast website? We will advise on servers, software and cloud offerings and suggest which one is right for you.
