Our primary goal here at SMEspree is to help your business succeed online. We understand that being in business isn’t a walk in the park.
Maybe you’re one-person business and you have a lot on your plate without having to think about websites.
Or, maybe your business has a small team but you’re not in a position to spend thousands on hiring a professional to build your website.
We can help!
Since we got started in 2017, we’ve focused on delivering simple, affordable and reliable web hosting to SMEs from New Zealand and around the world.
We’ve always had a focus on delivering value, which is why we’ve always offered a free domain, free business emails, free setup and configuration, and other perks (see our hosting plans if you’d like to know more).
This continuous drive to offer great tools and service for small business owners brings us to introduce you to Beaver Builder.
We’re super excited to offer the Beaver Builder website builder and the matching WordPress theme, absolutely 100% free (valued at $199 USD/y) to all of our customers who sign up for web hosting!
We agree – it is an odd name. What exactly is Beaver Builder?
Beaver Builder is a WordPress plugin that installs on top of a regular WordPress website. Once installed, it gives you a 100% visual drag-and-drop page builder.
It’s a toolset that allows any regular person to build stunning web pages without knowing a single line of code.
It has a great reputation within the industry, with Beaver Builder being the page builder of choice for most WordPress professionals.
Because it’s completely drag-and-drop, you can simply click and drag with your mouse, moving all of the individual components of your page into position as required.
As soon as you’re happy with your design or changes, clicking “Publish” pushes those changes to your live website.

WordPress is great, we love it. Hosting your own WordPress website provides a platform that’s very flexible, powerful, reliable and battle-proven (see Why We Use and Recommend WordPress for more details).
It’s fully capable of powering simple one-page websites for your uncle Bob’s plumbing business, right through to busy eCommerce websites serving millions of page views per month.
However, despite its popularity and advantages, WordPress can be intimidating for the non-technical people in the world. It’s all well and good to have access to a powerful platform like WordPress, but if you don’t know how to put it to good use then there’s no point.
This is where Beaver Builder comes in. By installing Beaver Builder onto your WordPress website, you get all of the advantages of WordPress (flexibility and reliability) and combine it with a great visual drag-and-drop page builder.
It gives you the best of both worlds – a simple and beautiful page builder with the flexibility and reliability of WordPress.
