Making this decision depends on what functionality you require rather than whether you currently use Linux or Windows on your computer. cPanel is an easy-to-use administration interface used on Linux hosting; WebsitePanel is used on .Net hosting; Linux is perfect for PHP and MySQL while Windows is best for ASP .NET and MS SQL.
The Standard package has been designed to accommodate a basic database website – if you're considering running a small blog (WordPress) or want to install a database to store or retrieve information then this package has your name on it. All of the 1-Click Installs require a database to function.
If you need your website to store and retrieve information then you'll need a database. Complete with SQL databases, our Premium and Premium Plus packages are perfect for sites such as directories, ecommerce websites and forums.
2 GB (Linux Only): Best for small websites or individual email accounts, 2 GB is also enough to start your first simple website.
5 GB: With enough space to grow, 5 GB is what you’ll need for an average-sized blog or website.
Unlimited: Recommended for larger websites, this is ideal if you host lots of photos, images, documents and other media and you wish to grow.
Traffic: This is the amount of content and media that your site displays to visitors. The more people who find and use your website, the more traffic (or bandwidth) you need. Our Premium and Premium Plus packages come with unlimited traffic.
We've sourced a generous offering to provide commercial-grade hosting at affordable prices.

Our simple 1-click installs for WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and other content management systems means building your website is a piece of cake.
And with a hosting control panel (either WebsitePanel or cPanel), you'll have no trouble managing your website once it's up and running.
There are a number of ways: you could do it yourself or you could engage a web designer and developer (can become very expensive) or you can use our new exciting Website Design Service – from just R499 per month (no upfront or hidden costs) we will create (in just two weeks), host and maintain your website.
That said, designing your own website is an exciting challenge and you can spend as much time on it as you need. Choose a package that offers WordPress or a similar content management system – our 1-click installs will make things easy for you.
You'll also need a domain name to point to your website; at Webafrica, we give you one for free!
You can upgrade or downgrade your web hosting package at any time simply by logging into your customer zone and choosing your new hosting package. Upgrades are instant; downgrades are activated at month end if initiated before the 20th of that month.
And since there are no contracts, if you want to cancel your shared hosting service then just give us a calendar month's notice – it's as simple as that.
