Affordable web hosting in South Africa made for your convenience

We believe website hosting must be affordable with no limitations on security, speed, scalability and reliability.

1. Free SSL Certificates

All website hosting packages include a Free Auto SSL certificate for all domains and subdomains. A trusted SSL certificate protects all page visitors’ sensitive data using encrypted http/https connections. A Trusted SSL certificate is also a requirement by search engines in order to rank higher.  Most web hosting companies in South Africa will sell SSL certificates at an additional cost.

As new web threats and attacks emerge on a daily basis, our firewall is capable of preventing attacks even before they occur.

3. Free Full cPanel Hosting Control Panel

Be aware that most web hosting companies in South Africa intentionally modify their cPanel to have fewer features such that you will be required to upgrade your web hosting plan when you are stuck. We offer our cPanel with all the features and even more benefits. With our umodified cPanel, you you’ll be able to take full control of any website you build. Be able to manage daily backups, change PHP versions, upgrade memory limits, monitor malware scans with imunify 360, and more.

More reasons why we are one of the best web hosting companies in South Africa

5.1 High Speed Cloud Web Hosting

We only offer the fastest cloud web hosting over old school traditional server hosting.

Website hosting technology has improved drastically over the years and the newest innovation so far is Cloud Web Hosting. As you have noticed, every tech giant company, such as Google, Apple, Spotify, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft etc. only base their services on cloud web hosting technology. Cloud Website Hosting is here to replace traditional physical servers which generally come with speed problems and frequent maintenance issues. 

A Cloud based website hosting platform allows you to be able to host websites with ease regardless of how small or big your  hosting needs are. Cloud web hosting advancements will provide you the redundancy and security features to keep your website online 24x7x365. Some of these advancements also include pro-active malware scanning and removal to ensure your website isn’t easily penetrated or exploited. 

The  biggest problem with the old-fashioned means of website hosting (physical web hosting servers) is that they use old fashioned spinning mechanical HDD hard drives which are highly prone to failure every now and then. If a hardware failure occurs (for example, a hard drive fails), the entire website hosting machine is shut down until the problem is resolved. This might result in hours of downtime for your websites, causing frustration and damaging the reputation of your brand.

it is also worth mentioning that most web hosting companies in South Africa are only offering cloud web hosting at an escalated price or will not openly disclose what type of web hosting servers they are using for their cheapest web hosting packages.

5.2 How Cloud Web Hosting Works

Cloud computing enables several physical machines to function as if they were a single system. As a result, with Cloud Web Hosting, visitors aren’t limited to a single machine. They have instant access to several. In other words, if one of the machines has a problem, other machines will always be accessible to help. Also, in a cloud website hosting server, resources like as disk space, RAM, and computer power can be added on the fly. Websites may be smoothly migrated and backups may be created in seconds.

6. WordPress hosting supercharged

Most frequent questions and answers about website hosting

A Web hosting platform is basically an internet server which stores all your website data.
