Frequently asked questions

If you still have unanswered questions, please reach out to us and we’ll be happy to assist.

We’re more than happy to accommodate our clients' needs. If our current server offering does not suit your needs, let us know! We have a large network of suppliers and stock on hand to meet many of these requests.

Our technicians are on-site throughout the day and available to assist.

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

Our cabinets and switches are all dual connected to edge routers. These routers in turn have fibre connections over multiple uplink providers. We also stock backup hardware. In the event of a DDOS attack, our upstream providers will route traffic through our cloud-based data scrubbing service to ensure continued reliability. 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.

Yes, with custom networking through our VLAN setup, you can grow and adapt as your hosting requirements increase.

It’s an entire physical server (industrial-sized computer) dedicated to one client alone, not shared with anyone else. They are also known as bare-metal servers because they run directly on the physical metal hardware, unlike virtual servers.

Hosting providers set up and house them in data centres around the world, then give the client root access to manage their servers online. Clients have complete control over access, security, software, configs, and resources. Being the most powerful cloud hosting option available, these servers handle enterprise workloads.

When your company receives, processes, stores and analyses large volumes of data daily, you need the performance that dedicated resources provide to handle this workload.

If security and privacy are absolutely crucial, bare-metal servers give you the most control over security configs, access and data privacy.

When you need custom resources, operating systems, networks, bandwidth, software, configurations, firewalls, etc. physical servers offer you the freedom to make any customisations.

Point of sales and large e-commerce hosting, CRMs where customer data is sacred, cloud-based accounting or enterprise management software, remote work environments, call centres, VoIP and PBX, testing environments, websites with more than say 2,000 users per day, such as online learning platforms, university or school websites, e-commerce websites, community or forum websites, online gaming sites, etc.

Bare-metal servers provide unmatched processing power, storage space and memory speeds. Having your own physical server means you keep all this performance to yourself. This abundance of resources means you won’t have to scale as often, and over a certain amount they end up costing less per unit.

Dedicated servers offer the most control of any hosting, meaning you decide what security measures to put in place, who has access, what software and configurations will run, and how to safeguard your data.
