Hello, Welcome to Medieval. So glad you're here.

Medieval has over 12 years of WordPress experience.

So, we're different and straightforward. Let's keep things simple. One revelation is that we figured if you can't log into and fiddle around with a confusing web hosting control panel, it's a lot less likely that you're going to break something accidentally. The trade-off is worth it. By eliminating the things you don't need to worry about, it's easier for us to troubleshoot issues you may have going on with your website. Contact us for all the technical stuff, and we're in a better position to understand what you want to do and help you better.

You get to enjoy the full power of WordPress without limits. Medieval is a service, with a face, with a smile. Join our family.

I'm Steven, the brains behind Medieval. I've been working with online technology for pretty much my entire life.

If you're serious about the performance, security and operability of your WordPress website, you've come to the right place. I built Medieval out of sheer frustration of dealing with many "web hosting providers" that don't know what they're doing — inadequate performance, clueless admin/support, non-existent backups, and forgotten support tickets.

Medieval is customer-centric. First and foremost, we both know that it's a service industry. Customers want good quality service. I want to say we have the best WordPress hosting platform in the world. Actually, who cares? You don't care, as long as it works. We believe in strong customer relationships because, in this industry, things do go belly up. Servers will fail, websites get hacked, you may get emotional, you need someone to call. We'll separate ourselves from the pack of other hosting providers by being there for you.

Medieval stands for honesty, strategy, strength, robustness, knowledge, freedom. "Freedom" in the sense that you'll have more important things to concentrate on in your business, and a slow website won't be one of them.

In these times, technology can be overwhelming to some. We strive to bridge the gap between what you want and what you don't know. Our customers trust us to bring the best solutions to their technological challenges. That only comes from decades of experience.

We manage our server infrastructure ourselves. Providing a reliable service starts with a solid understanding of what's driving it. The reason why our WordPress hosting service is fast is that we use quality parts, trusted upstream providers, best industry practices, and the KISS principle. The reason why customers love our our level of expertise and service is that we walk the talk.

Thanks for stopping by Medieval.

— Steven

Medieval hosting really is what it says - managed WordPress hosting like no other. We were two days from launching our new business and stuck with a website we’d developed on a dummy domain and foreign hosting. When we went to move the website to our real domain, a .co.nz domain, we found our host didn’t support it.

Thankfully I found Medieval hosting. These guys totally rock. All they needed was our login and it was done – and in lightening time. They were also incredibly proactive. They optimised the site configuration, made a series of recommendations, including search engine optimisation and then upon our approval implemented them.

And this level of service isn’t a one off – it is what I have come to expect from these guys. Everything they do is very proactive and customer centric, right down to even making the billing super simple and easy to understand.

One very, very happy customer here :)

I have been working with Steven Munro at Medieval in the building of 2 websites and the development of my products. He has offered a great deal of support and time at every stage of this development. Part of the reassurance was that he has always been easy to contact and ready to help when you need him. He showed a great deal of patience, diligence and professionalism. I would not hesitate to recommend Steven and his quality service to any organization. I am looking forward to growing my business with Steven at Medieval.

I have been working with Steven from Medieval for the past couple of years, he now hosts a number of my clients websites and I will never look back. Steven offers the fastest and most up to date hosting out there at very competitive prices and to top that off, his support, knowledge & expertise in all things web and tech is beyond comprehension.

Steven's systems are so well set up, he will take care of hosting, transferring sites and the processes around that with absolute professionalism, speed and ease.

Steven is always a phone call away when you need him and without fail always has a solution to fix any problems that may arise and always with a smile and a good chat at the other end of the line. I cannot recommend Steven and Medieval hosting highly enough and I am so thankful to be working with him.

Thank you Steven for helping us grow our business over the last five years You have built our website up from day one, with a big upgrade just over a year ago which is clearer, faster and reliable which has attracted more interest and given us new contacts.

I go on to other websites and they are slow to load, with our upgrade everything is fast clear and easy to find.

If we want any changes done or if there is a problem Steve fixes it 24/7.

My website is a WooCommerce store with a lot of plugins needing regular updates, and I'd be lost without Medieval. The hosting is fast, support is superb, and it is totally worth it!
