HOSTAFRICA, Excellent service for more than 10 years now
Just wanted to take a moment to compliment the service I received from HOSTAFRICA. You guys have always responded within great time and assistance. I appreciate the professional approach and attitude of the company. Been hosting with you guys for around 10 years now. Thank you to the team at hostafrica.co.za too! Amazing Job.
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!

Do you keep a backup of my servers?
We backup your data automatically once a day. These snapshots allow you to roll back your virtual server to a previous state. You are also free to take a snapshot whenever you want from your control panel.
Which Operating systems come with the Virtual 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. For Windows we offer Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2016. 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 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.
