Website hosting is a service that allows individuals and organisations to make their website accessible on the internet. Hosting companies provide space on a server, as well as internet connectivity, typically in a data center. When you sign up for hosting, you're essentially renting space on a server where your web files are stored, allowing users worldwide to access your website through the internet. Hosting Accounts also usually allow the setup of email addresses, using the same domain as used for the website.
Can I use Wordpress for my website?
Yes, our hosting services are fully compatible with WordPress, which is a widely used content management system. We offer easy one-click installations for WordPress, allowing you to get your WordPress website up and running quickly and efficiently. The servers use Solid State drives and Litespeed, and this really makes websites using Wordpress fly.
Can I host multiple domains with a single hosting account?
Yes, we do like many hosting providers, offer plans that allow you to host multiple domains under a single account. This feature is especially beneficial for those managing multiple websites. It simplifies administration, as you can manage all your domains from a single control panel without needing separate hosting accounts for each domain.
How do I set up email accounts for my domain?
Most hosting services include email hosting for your domain. You can set up email accounts through your hosting control panel. Typically, you'll create a new email address, set a password, and then configure your email client (like Outlook) to send and receive messages using your new email address.
Do you offer a free website builder?
Yes, we provide a free website builder with our hosting plans. This tool is user-friendly and allows you to create a professional-looking website without any coding knowledge. It comes with a variety of templates and customization options to suit your needs. Clients can also use other website builders like Wix, and then use this website with the domain, and we provide the emails for the account.
How often do you perform server backups?
We perform regular server backups to ensure your data is safe. Typically, backups are done daily, and we keep multiple copies for a certain period. This ensures that in the event of any data loss or server failure, your website can be quickly restored to a recent version.
What security measures are in place to protect my website and data?
Our hosting services include robust security measures such as firewalls, security monitoring, and regular software updates to protect against threats. We also provide SSL certificates to encrypt data transferred between your website and its visitors, enhancing the security of personal information.
What do I need to start hosting my website?
To start hosting your website, you need a domain name and a hosting plan. Once you've selected your plan, you can set up your website using a website builder or a content management system like WordPress. You'll also need content and design elements to build your website. To find an available domain name, enter possible names into the Domain Search form above. After adding a domain you found to the Shopping Cart, also select Website Hosting on the menu and choose one of the Hosting solutions available and add that to the Shopping Cart. Then Checkout, make payment and our system will register the domain, setup the hosting account and then send you the login details by email.
Can I upgrade my hosting plan as my website and data use grows?
Absolutely. We offer scalable hosting solutions, so you can upgrade your hosting plan as your website's needs grow. This ensures that your site always has the resources it needs, such as more storage space or increased bandwidth, to accommodate increasing traffic and content.
Do you offer technical support?
Yes, we offer comprehensive technical support to our clients. Our support team is available 24/7 to assist with any issues or questions you might have. You can reach us through various channels, including phone, email, and WhatsApp live chat, as well as support tickets in our Client Area.
How does the Free co.za Domain offer work?
We will register One Free co.za Domain for New Clients that subscribe to a Website Hosting package on selected levels for One Year and make payment for it. This is valid for all Hosting packages Except the Starter Package.
The co.za domain needs to be in the same order as the Website Hosting package so the system can correctly allocate the domain registration discount.
The Free registration offer is only valid for initial registration of the domain. After the first year, the regular Annual Renewal fee for co.za (currently R75) will be applicable.
If I decide to move my domain and hosting to you, can you assist with moving my website and email?
Yes, absolutely. We can move your existing content for Free. We will however need access to your current hosting provider's control panel in order to retrieve the content.
