It depends on your needs. If you're just starting out or want to test some development ideas, try our Starter package; if you need something more powerful, then we have a number of options with increasingly sophisticated features leading all the way to our Ultimate package.
Shared hosting runs on shared virtual resources and there are no dedicated RAM or CPU allocations. As your site grows, you may encounter performance issues because your website and database require more system resources.
This is where Virtual Private Servers come in. VPS gives you dedicated virtual resources, including your own storage space, vCPU, RAM and bandwidth. By taking advantage of these resources, you optimise your application and enjoy improved performance and greater stability.
There are several factors to consider. One is that you can always upgrade should you reach the limits of your package. Another is that the operating system that you choose to install will take up space on your VPS. Because of this, Windows Server is ideally suited to the Virtual Plus package and above.
When it comes to RAM, the basic rule is the more you have the better – obviously within reason! This is because RAM is the fast, short-term memory available for your operating system, programmes and processes. More RAM means better performance.
And as with desktop computers, access to more CPUs will give you faster and greater processing power.
We've sourced a generous offering to provide commercial-grade cloud hosting at affordable prices.
We host you locally in our high-security data centre to ensure high uptime and reliability.
We'll have you online in no time! No forms, no faxes, simply sign up online or call us.
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 our DSL management console online 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.
It means a number of physical machines brought together to form a virtual infrastructure. This is then centrally managed and provides a high degree of reliability and availability. The interaction with virtual servers is the same as dedicated servers: you get remote access via remote desktop or terminal SSH.
VPS gives you computing resources at a lower price when compared to dedicated servers which means that 'going virtual' equates to more affordability for you or your business.
First, decide which package you want. (We've given you some tips above!) Then choose and order your operating system and any add-ons. You get the dedicated allocations, and after we've provisioned your VPS we'll send you an email with everything you to get started. You’re then good to go!
You can stop and start your VPS from our Customer Zone – making it easy if you need to troubleshoot – and you also enjoy full remote and SSH access.
