NZ Website Design Packages

NZ Website design packages for small business

Affordable NZ website design packages provided by WRC are comprehensive. My professional website design rates are very competitive. Website design services can also include professional organic (natural) SEO built into the design. I’ve been an SEO consultant since 1997 – SEO really is our core competency!

Web design packages have been divided into a series of options / stages to make it easy for you to pick the option best suited to your budget. You can step up in incremental levels if you wish to spread out your expenditure. For example;

  1. Web Design & Build
  2. SEO packages
  3. Full-service Hosting Management & Website Maintenance

NZ Web Design Rates

Our professional website design packages costs are based on NZ$75 per hour (US$50). Website development costs are usually significantly lower than you might expect. That is because I’m an experienced freelance website designer who works fast in a development environment that allows rapid assembly and deployment. Contacting a professional web design agency makes a huge difference to project outcomes.

Website Basics on All Site Packages

Site Platforms

All sites are built on a bullet-proof design theme platform, using a child theme process to provide a bespoke design for your business. Usually, I use the WP Jumpstart theme base because it is robust and secure and the developer is quick to respond to any issues that might arise. Theme base updates can be done without interfering with the design and layout. I have a developers license to this software.

Load Speed

I take care to ensure page load speed is optimised. I use a premium caching plugin (WP Rocket Cache) and Shortpixel to optimise all images. Image work includes regenerating of image thumbnails, and removal of the unused ones created by previous themes. All server-intensive elements that the site does not use are deactivated; XML-RPC, Heartbeat and the REST API etc.


All sites need security! I implement that on several levels:

  1. Brute Force Login: attacks are defended against by using Loginizer or Wordfence
  2. Web Application Firewall: other hacking attacks are fended off using Block Bad Queries or Wordfence
  3. Bad Bots: these are blocked to reduce their impact on server resources and to prevent content scraping etc.

The old adage that “An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure” still holds true today!


This is business risk-management 101. To further secure your site’s ability to recover from any disaster, I implement a licensed copy of Updraftplus. Your database is backed up daily, files are (usually) backed up weekly. All backups are uploaded to off-site Cloud storage. In the event that anything goes wrong, we should have multiple restoration points, as well as whatever backups the hosting account has running.
