We are a small company based in Wellington, New Zealand. We have been providing website design and hosting for over 10 years. As a small New Zealand business we understand other New Zealand businesses.

Dear John makes web hosting and website development easy and affordable for small businesses and businesses who are just starting out. Our sites grow with your business.

Effective Web Design

We don't just do pretty websites! We develop stylish, responsive  websites which will help convert lookers to customers.

Local Support

We are based in New Zealand — we speak Kiwi. Our servers are secure off-shore and use world-leading software. 


Start small and grow. Your website can grow with your business. Hosting only or a full design package — you choose. 

Secure Solutions

Umaintained websites are vulnerable to hackers. We do the techie stuff so you don't need to worry. 

Are you a web designer who needs hosting for your clients?

We'd like to talk about providing an excellent service to your clients which will also add to your bottom line. 

WordPress+Page Buider = Freedom

Industry-standard software hat means we can work with your designer, or you may want to do your own updates. We offer flexibility and usability. 

Online Shop

Because we use WordPress to build your site,  adding features such as eCommerce to sell your goods and services is straightforward.  Your website develops as your business does. 

Your Website Stays Secure

A website needs regular software updates to keep it secure. We'll do this for you - think of it as insurance against the bad guys! 

Customer-Focussed Websites

Our websites are designed for your customers — they are easy for customers to use on their phone or laptop, plus they are easy for search engines to find. 

Event Management

Add the functionality so customers can sign up for your events or courses online.  Combine with eCommerce to provide payment options.

Upgrades and Backups Automatically

All of our hosting packages will get a monthly report describing what upgrades we've done. Packages have flexible upgrades.
