About – Freelance Website Designer

Ben has been a freelance website designer since 1997 BG (before Google).

Ben has been engaged in small business website design services and copy-writing web page content for almost two decades…

Freelance web designer - Ben KempBen has worked in the Information Technology field since 1987, first as an EDP Officer, then IT Manager. In 1994 he was awarded both national & international awards* for Information Technology project implementations. Since 1997, he’s been involved in SEO consultancy and website design.

I began working in the field of website designs, site development and search engine optimisation back in 1997 – before Google! In that period of time, about the only constant thing has been change!

  • Passions: Large ‘cruiser’ style motorcycles, fly fishing, work…
  • Likes: Latte, Jack Daniels & Coke Zero, morning walks…
  • Dislikes: power cuts, Internet downtime, interruptions during rugby matches…

Web Hosting & Domain Registration

I’ve always encouraged clients to utilise a professional independent hosting service. Years ago, in response to client requests for full-service hosting,  I established my own Reseller Hosting account in a USA data centre. The benefit is instant access to server settings to provide fast response time to customer issues!

For local (NZ) sites, I personally use and recommend the services provided by either;

  • MyHost.nz – they provide fast servers in Auckland, and good support.
  • Web-Wide-Hosting.co.nz – servers physically located in Auckland New Zealand.
