our purpose

HOSTAFRICA is named after our vision to support businesses and individuals across Africa

With most of the planet now operating online, it’s absolutely essential to establish an online presence. It is the best way to market yourself or your business. Africa has been missing out on this industry for some time now, and it’s our vision to help Africans get in on the action. Whether you have a business, blog or app that you need to get out to the world, you need a trustworthy company to host it online. That’s us.

Inspired by Cape Town’s beauty in South Africa HOSTAFRICA’s Founder, Michael Osterloh, brought his expertise from Germany to help Africans get online. Too often, big multinational corporations undercut local businesses with low price but provide even lower customer service. We believe the only way business should be done is to truly care for our customers and their needs.

our mission

We are an established Hosting business with more than 15 years of combined experience.

We are fiercely committed to providing outstanding service to our customers. Our exceptional team consists of skilled developers, administrators and managers from both Germany and South Africa.

HOSTAFRICA’s Founder and CEO, Michael Osterloh, was Managing Director of “Deutsche Börse Cloud Exchange AG”—one of the largest providers of virtual servers in Germany. Marcel Chorengel not only founded it, but also developed the first fully automated web hosting software—Confixx.

At the end of 2015, HOSTAFRICA acquired the hosting company “Cloud to Machine Pty Ltd” (Joburg) from Chris Kruger (South African). In December 2016, we acquired VPS Networks (CLOUD.co.za and VPS.co.za); and in September 2019 we acquired AmpleHosting.co.za

We provide VPS (Virtual Private Server) and Cloud solutions with servers based here in South Africa, as well as around the world. Our servers in South Africa allow us to achieve the highest speeds for local access.
