RIVER: Hosting & Maintenance

We have setup a tailored hosting environment to provide optimal performance for our projects, maximising uptime and security.

We have a distributed hosting service that utilises the services of Site Host (based in New Zealand), Amazon Web Services (AWS), and a number of external services including Sentry and Mailgun. This ensures optimal performance and loading times, multiple points of redundancy, and minimised costs for large amounts of file storage.

What you get out of the box:

  • High performance hosting with optimal performance
  • High security hosting with SSL integration
  • Daily database snapshot backups (7-day retention)
  • Automatic version control for project updates
  • Robust mailing, alert and security services
  • Automated error tracking and uptime monitoring
  • Distributed file management and hosting
  • Analytics and reporting capability

Our tailored solution also yields a high level of security not otherwise possible with other platforms, reduces the burden for ongoing patches and security fixes, and allows for continuous improvement of the website over the long run.


Pricing depends on a number of factors including the size and complexity of your project, the number of features and services integrated, the amount of traffic your website receives, the number and size of files stored, and the amount of maintenance and security required for your project.


As part of our hosting services, we provide ongoing maintenance to keep your website online with maximum uptime, in accordance with our original scope of work. This does not include adding features, enhancements, or bug fixes to your website that are outside of your original project scope, or fixing bugs/errors outside of our control.

External Services

Where required, we also integrate external services for projects (usually via API). Costs for third-party services will usually be passed on, unless agreed otherwise.
