Just to set the story straight.

Openhost, Freeparking, Domains4less, Webdrive, Discount Domains, Digiweb WERE all owned by Umbrellar up until late last year. Umbrellar is a NZ company formed when Digiweb brought Webdrive. Umbrellar has data centers in Christchurch and Auckland.

They were sold to Crazy Domains (owned by Dreamscape) at the end of last year.

There are still NZ staff based in Christchurch, Auckland and Palmerston North. All NZ based hosting, email and domain services are currently being migrated to Crazy Domains Australian data centers.

Umbrellar Cloud Hosting is still a NZ company specialising in Azure (yes..yes..the evil Microsoft)
