Client reviews

Our clients have rated our cloud services and support 5 stars!

  • Still the best service

    I have been with HOSTAFRICA almost over a year and I have only ever, till this date received swift, friendly and extremely helpful service from them as if I am a new client. Still the best Hosting Company in my books!
  • Superb Customer Service

    Been with HOSTAFRICA for the last 9 months or so. Over this time I’ve experienced nothing but superb customer service and excellent technical support - sometimes in the early hours of the morning over weekends.
  • Amazing client service!

    I have a VPS running CentOS 7 with HA and was in need of some help. They sorted me out even tho CentOS and CWP are not part of the VPS solution terms. Super glad to be with these guys.

Enjoy world-class support

You can expect our world-class support staff to deliver a practical solution to any of your technical issues with accuracy and efficiency. We’re equipped to handle any problem you may encounter with your cloud server with proven methods and implementations.

Instant setup, scalable solutions

Virtual machines are ideal for businesses that want real-time, remote collaborations among employees who need to get their files and applications online. It enables you to experiment, develop, test apps and websites, and run legacy apps or operating systems for an affordable price. Cloud-based servers are preferred over physical servers for the following reasons:

costs icon

Cost efficient

Thanks to KVM virtualisation you no longer need to pay for a dedicated server to host your business and websites in the cloud. Only pay for the resources and features you need as you need them. This is the most reliable way to manage your resources and budget when it comes to cloud technology.

clock icon

Turnaround time

Unlike physical servers that can take days to set up, server virtualisation allows you to order and set up a virtual machine in minutes. Our German founder was one of the pioneers in bringing virtual machines to Africa, and we’ve stuck by the speed of Linux cloud servers ever since. We’re rooted in efficiency with tried-and-true methods, meaning you get what you paid for without delay.

server speed icon

Performance on a budget

Thanks to hardware virtualization, cloud servers can operate as virtual computers. Each machine has its own resources and operating system. With KVM technology you experience near-native bare-metal server speeds and performance for a fraction of the cost. That’s what we call top-tier performance on a budget.

cloud up down icon

Seamless scalability

Adding resources to your cloud server is much easier than upgrading a physical server. Just ask us to increase your resources whenever the need arises. We can upgrade or downgrade live, allowing you to scale at will, without any service disruptions!

Frequently asked questions

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

It all depends on the resources you require for your operation. A small business may not need to buy the same package as a bigger business. It's worth noting that many of the web applications and scripts require a fair amount of memory.

If you're running an operation that requires the best CPU and RAM for weightless use of your applications, you'll want to choose a package with more resources. If you're just starting our a more affordable package will suit you best.

Customer support needs to be exemplary: You can't compromise on customer support, and neither do we. Our customer support team consists of highly trained, friendly professionals, who are at your disposal. Our turnaround times are unmatched.

Choose KVM virtualization: For many years, KVM has been the model of choice when it comes to virtualization. It guarantees high speed, availability, and security. This is why we use it to run our servers. If you're wondering which operating system best suits your needs, choose an OS with which you (and your colleagues) feel comfortable. We support CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, FreePBX, 3CX, and Windows. We also allow custom mounted ISOs, but we don't provide support for issues related to these OSs.

A virtual machine (VM) is a software-based imitation of a physical computer or server. It runs just like your laptop or desktop PC, but unlike them, it doesn't have a physical presence. Multiple machines can run on the same physical host, but each one is a fully isolated environment. Think of VM's as apartments in a huge building. Each apartment has its own interior, design, and occupants. However, all apartments get their share of the electricity grid and the water reservoir of the building.

A virtual machine can do anything a physical computer can. They are used to store data, run applications and services, connect resources to the internet, and serve content to the web. VMs can be used to host multiple websites, ecommerce stores, and cPanel activities like storing files, accessing client databases, and emails. These machines can also be used to back up data or handle potential malware in a contained environment separate from important systems.

KVM, (Kernel-based Virtual Machine), is a virtualization technology that comes built into Linux. Using KVM, the Linux kernel can be made to function as a hypervisor. Think of the hypervisor as special software that allows a physical host (PC or server) to be divided into multiple, isolated virtual machines. This is called virtualization.

VM stands for virtual machine, whereas KVM stands for kernel-based virtual machine. The two terms represent linked, but different technologies. A virtual machine is a software version of a computer that runs atop a physical computer or server.

KVM is a Linux virtualization solution that lets you create and manage virtual machines on a physical computer or server. So, KVM is used to create VMs. Think of it as the emulation software that makes it possible to run multiple self-contained, isolated operating systems, on the same piece of hardware.

If you don’t find a suitable VM size on our website, please contact us so we can offer you a custom solution to your exact requirements.

You can host as many websites as you like on your server, we do not define any limit. You just have to ensure the size of your machine is always sufficient for the number of resources your sites use. Your package can be upgraded or downgraded at any time to suit the number of sites you intend to host.

Easily! Log in to your customer section, choose the product and select upgrade/downgrade. Upgrades will be processed immediately, downgrades at the end of the month.

At reasonable rates, we offer you full flexibility of your backups. Order a backup plan add-on during checkout. These are snapshots that allow you to roll back your virtual machine to a previous state.

Currently you can choose between the following Linux versions: CentOS 8, 7; Debian 10, 9.0, 8.0; Ubuntu 20.04, 18.04, 16.04; FreePBX 10, SNG7; 3CX.

Other Versions are available on request, however, custom mounted ISOs are not officially supported by us, we will not provide support for any custom OS related issues.

It all depends on the package you decide to rent. A more affordable package will have less CPUs. Our packages range from two vCPUs to 16 vCPUs. A vCPU is a Virtual Processing Unit. One or more vCPUs are assigned to a VM. Each vCPU is seen as a single physical CPU core by your server's operating system.

Larger packages naturally include more vCPU's, however, the CPU is very often not a limiting factor. In the majority of use cases, the most important factor is how much memory (RAM) is needed. Modern PHP/MySQL scripts often use a lot of RAM, so RAM is very important when deciding which package you buy.

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.
