We use the services of a reliable and trusted local hosting company which has been in business since 1999. Over 40 000 customers trust their websites to them. They are one of the top hosting companies in South Africa.

Hosting is their core business and they do it well.

Local Hosting

All our websites are hosted in South Africa. The advantage of this is that Visitors from South Africa will experience faster load times.

The other advantage is our hosting partner is just a phone call away so in case there is an issue it is easy to contact them.

On request we can host your website overseas if the majority of your traffic is not from South Africa.

Backups

Things can go wrong, a update of WordPress or plugins etc. So reliable frequent backups are important. Rest assured that you website and database is backed up every single day.

We check the restore process regularly and so far we have not encountered any problems.

Besides the daily backup at our hosting partner, we run a monthly external backup as well.

Free Security Certificate

All our websites get a free security Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate installed. 

What does this mean? Basically that nobody can eavesdrop on the communication between your website visitor and your server. The traffic is encrypted.

Is this important? Yes and no. If your site does not process any credit card transaction or any transactions which need to be secure it might not be needed. But a secure site has other advantages as well.

An ssl certificate will inspire higher confidence in your website and search engines will give them a boost in ranking.
