Why we only offer Cloud Web Hosting over traditional types of hosting?

The main problem with traditional website hosting servers is that they have a single point of failure (i.e. one dedicated server). If there is a hardware fault (a hard drive goes out) the entire machine is brought down until it is replaced. This can lead to hours of downtime creating widespread frustration and panic to your website visitors. Additional resources such as RAM have to be physically added or be replaced, meaning if the server has a large traffic spike, the entire machine can begin to lag and struggle to perform.

Nowadays website hosting has improved and there is a new development called Cloud Web Hosting. As you have noticed, every tech giant company, such as Google, Apple, Spotify, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft etc. only host their services on the cloud in order to render their services to their worldwide clients. To sum it all up, cloud Web Hosting is here to replace traditional physical servers, which are prone to speed issues and require constant maintenance. 

Another biggest benefit for cloud web hosting is that it is made to be secured by proactive malware screening and cleanup tools to ensure your website is not easily exploited.

How Cloud Web Hosting Works

Cloud computing allows multiple physical machines to act as one system. Therefore with Cloud Website Hosting, visitors aren’t accessing just one machine. They’re accessing several instantaneously. Meaning if one of the machines are having a problem then other machines will always be available for rescue. With cloud website hosting, resources such as disk space, RAM, and computing power, can be added on the fly. Backups can be spun up instantly and websites can migrate seamlessly.

Cheapest web hosting in South Africa with Free WordPress

WordPress is the best and most popular web design tool or content management system (CMS) which powers over 45% of websites on the world’s internet websites and blogs. WordPress offers a huge library of free and paid website builder tools such as ready made themes and drag and drop site builders such as Elementor and Divi builder. Whether you are an individual or a business, you can build successful blogs, online stores and corporate websites to help sell products and services with or without any coding knowledge.

All our website hosting packages include Free WordPress install. Our cloud hosting servers provide dedicated security and speed optimisation technologies for WordPress. 

Paranoid about being being hacked? Our Al drive Security Shield will identify and stop any malicious WordPress logins from hackers and patch all security holes. This particular website you are viewing right now is also built on WordPress and we have never had any security issues in over 3 years.

With Free LiteSpeed server caching and a Content Delivery Network (CDN) – CloudFlare with Railgun, your WordPress website will always load noticeably fast to visitors all over the world. We have noticed that most web hosting companies in South Africa either do not offer LiteSpeed and CloudFlare at all or will offer you these speed enhancement technologies at an additional cost.

Web Hosting FAQs - Here are the Answers

Most frequent questions and answers about our cheapest website hosting platform.

Shared Website Hosing is a type of website hosting where multiple users share resources such as an I.P address of a secured server. This is the most common form of web hosting because it is very affordable and generally convenient for smaller and growing businesses.

A Web hosting platform is basically an internet server which stores all your website data. You need three things to have a functioning website: a domain name, web hosting, and website files. Your website files need to be hosted or saved on a live internet server for it to be live on the internet when someone types your domain name on Google. So you need a web hosting plan because your website won’t go live if its not under a web hosting plan.

Always choose Short and Easy to remember names. Perfect domain names are single worded with letters and sometimes with numbers and hyphens. Special characters are not allowed in domain names. Examples of perfect domains are: apple.com instead of “apple-incorporated.com” If you’d like to be descriptive to the nature of the business you are in, then try to keep it really short and brief, for example: mashjoyhosting.com instead of “mashjoywebhosting.com” or “jackmotors.co.za instead of “jackscardealership.co.za”
