Fantastic service and product knowledge

After migrating our site to HOSTAFRICA – I feel compelled to write a short review of our experience.  We ran into all sorts of scalability issues at previous hosts.  They were only interested in selling more servers to us – without any guidance on how to handle traffic and server load.   Not so at HOSTAFRICA – they were able to stress test our site and identify several bottlenecks. Thanks to them, our developers were able to optimize the components that caused strain on the database. We are amazed by their knowledge when it comes to databases and clustering – for the first time in years our site can effortlessly handle the influx of visitors when we run a promotion.  Thank you Michael and HOSTAFRICA team – you guys are great!

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

We can offer you a cloud to your exact needs. If you don’t find a suitable server size on our website , please contact us so we can offer you a tailored server 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 Plesk or 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. These are snapshots that allow you to roll back your virtual server to a previous state.

Which Operating systems come with the Linux Cloud server?

Currently you can choose between the following Linux versions: Cent OS 7, Cent OS 6, Debian 8.0, Debian 7.0, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 14.10, Fedora 23, Fedora 22. Other Version are available on request.

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 cloud?

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 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.

How many websites can I host on my Cloud server?

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