Website Monitoring Centre Goes Live in Auckland, New Zealand

New Zealand may only have a population of some 4.3 million people, but when it comes to e-Commerce it is no slouch.  You only need to take a look at Creative HQ and The Icehouse – two world class incubators – to see that population size is no limit on creativity and ambition.

In Wellington the digital accelerator Lightning Lab showcased the first of nine startups from New Zealand and Australia earlier this year.  These start-ups will be taken under the wing of 100 mentors, including Phil McCaw whose VC Movac invested in one of New Zealand’s best-known start-up success stories TradeMe.

Each of the start-ups – which include Teamisto and MyBuy in the nine chosen – received $18,000 NZD which all goes towards their big demo day on May 15th, some three weeks away, when they’ll all pitch their products to New Zealand’s VC and angel investor community.

With the domestic market relatively small most New Zealand eCommerce sites focus on the U.S as their target market – often using their home soil as a great opportunity to beta test their products and put them through the stresses of real customers.  And with the U.S. a key market for New Zealand start-ups it is little surprise that the U.S. is often the exit for these businesses – Hyperfactory and M-Com being two great examples.

At we’re looking to help great entrepreneurial businesses get going.  And however big your website is, knowing that it is up and performing well is critical to your success.  That’s why we’ve rolled out our first website monitoring centre in Auckland, New Zealand.

So whether you’re a New Zealand based online business with local customers or based overseas but have New Zealand customers, you’ll be able to have your website tested for downtime from a server that is most relevant to you.  Because our New Zealand website monitoring is carried out from servers near you, rather than those thousands of miles away, you can be sure that we’re seeing what your New Zealand customers are seeing – and that load and response times are accurate.

The ability to choose our Auckland website monitoring centre to perform checks, or indeed any of global network of downtime monitoring servers, is available to all StatusCake paid plans customers, and if you pay for a year you’ll get two months absolutely free.
