cloud server questions?

We have answers

I can't find a suitable server size on your website, help?

If you don’t find a suitable server size on our website, please contact us so we can offer you a server tailored to your exact requirements.

Can I move my websites from my current hosting to HOSTAFRICA?

Sure! If you have an existing hosting plan or server based on cPanel with another hosting company, we would be happy to take care of your migration.

Do you keep a backup of my servers?

At reasonable rates, we offer you full flexibility of your backups. Order a backup plan add-on at our VPS checkout. These are snapshots that allow you to roll back your virtual server to a previous state.

Which Operating systems come with the Virtual Server?

Currently HOSTAFRICA officially provides OS support for the following: CentOS 8, 7, 6; Debian 10, 9.0, 8.0; Ubuntu 20.04, 18.04, 16.04; FreePBX 10; SNG7; 3CX.

Other Versions are available on request, however custom mounted ISOs are not officially supported by HOSTAFRICA, we will not provide support for any custom OS related issues.

How much CPU do I get?

A vCPU is a Virtual Processing Unit. One or more vCPUs are assigned to a Virtual Machine (VM). Each vCPU is seen as a single physical CPU core by your servers operating system. Larger packages include more vCPU’s. The CPU is very often not a limiting factor. In the majority of the used cases the most important factor is how much RAM (memory) is needed. Modern PHP/MySQL scripts often use a lot of RAM, so RAM is very important when deciding on the package you buy.

How many IP addresses do I get with my VPS?

Each server is deployed with 1 IP address to start with. You can request additional IP’s from us in case you need it. In such a case we charge a small monthly amount in addition.

How many websites can I host on my Virtual Server?

You can host as many websites as you like on your virtual server, we do not define any limit. You just have to ensure the size of your VPS is always sufficient for the amount of resources your sites use. Your VPS can be upgraded or downgraded at any time to suit the number of sites you intend to host.

How can I upgrade or downgrade my server plan?

Easily login to your customer section, choose the product and click up- or downgrade. Upgrades will be processed immediately, downgrades at the end of the month.
