Yes, our technicians are on-site throughout the day and available to assist with any hardware issues.

Our servers are provided as self-managed initially, however, you can add an admin plan which will give you direct access to some of the most experienced system administrators in the hosting industry.

Yes, our cabinets and switches are all dual connected to juniper backbone routers, which in turn have fibre connections over multiple uplink providers.

This service switch-over is seamless and performed within seconds.

Our servers are co-located in South Africa to ensure you have the highest speeds and lowest latency possible.

There are various differences between our budget dedicated servers and our regular ones. These range from non-standard hardware and older equipment to repurposed servers and custom builds.

Because these servers are pre-built, and may use older or non-standard hardware, customisations and upgrades may be limited.

In some cases, it may take longer to source replacement hardware and in other cases the hardware may be slower or of a previous generation, which makes these servers a lot cheaper than our standard servers.
