why you need a website

In today’s world, customers love researching on the web. They love comparing different service providers and products and they love shopping online.

If you don’t have a website, you will never realize your brand’s full potential. Even if your business is thriving, there’s so much that you are missing out on.

Customers don’t have a place to turn to, when they need more information on your products. They can’t even find you in the search results on Google. And if ever they need urgent support, there’s no way for them to get on a live chat with your team.

A website lets you engage with your customers, while also attracting new ones. If your website has value-rich, search engine optimized content, new leads and visitors will inevitably land on it.

There was a time when it was relatively difficult and expensive to build a website. Today, it’s so easy and affordable that you can’t justify not having one. HOSTAFRICA’s drag-and-drop website builder lets you build your website in minutes! No coding skills required!

Regardless of your level of experience, you can use our website maker to build any kind of website. All you have to do is select a theme, add your content, and click Publish. Our website builder will handle the rest for you!

If you’re looking for the best website builder to do the job, you’ve come to the right place.

Yes, they are. In fact, security is our top-most priority, and we strive to incorporate it intrinsically in every website created. Therefore, we include a free SSL certificate with every website builder package!

An SSL certificate encrypts all your website’s data as it gets transferred to-and-from the server. This makes the data indecipherable for all parties, except the sender (the server) and the receiver (your browser). Sensitive information such as: login details, account numbers, and payment info, will always remain protected.

With cyberattacks on the rise, backups have become a need-of-the-hour. Therefore, daily incremental backups are standard across all our website builder packages. This ensures that even if your website starts malfunctioning, for whatever reason, we can just revert it to a previous stable state.

Moreover, we also perform 24/7 monitoring, and regular patching of your website, and the server it’s running on. This significantly decreases your risk of getting compromised.

Yes, we do. You can choose from over 200 templates across 20+ categories, including business, nature, media, landing pages, sport, social, travel, transport, personal page, art, and blog etc.

The best part about our templates is that they have been designed to be aesthetically pleasing, highly responsive and fast. Websites built with our templates don’t trade-off sleek design for speed.

We have included multiple options under the different categories to give our customers the ultimate freedom of choice. Before you select a template, you can preview it as well. This lets you paint a mental picture of your website’s design, before committing to it!

And of course, if you don’t like a template, you can go back and choose another. So, feel free to switch between different templates until you find one that’s perfect for your business.

Our website builder also gives you complete control over the design. Don’t like any elements, colours, or fonts? Change them easily within the site builder interface.

Getting started with your website builder takes minutes. Select your desired package, choose a domain, checkout, complete the registration form, and place your order. Once you make the payment, you get access to the HOSTAFRICA website builder.

  1. Import an existing website or choose a template. You can also preview a template before selecting.
