We host our client  websites in data centres which feature redundant power (no site downtime due to load shedding), HVAC, fire detection systems and are monitored 24/7. Backups are made daily.

ESKOM load shedding does not affect your emails as it would if you hosted it onsite should you not have alternative power that runs your server while your office is under ESKOM load shedding.

Hosting with us, means your email will still be accessible as long as your router is online – or as long as you can connect to the internet, at a coffee shop that has working wifi, if your own 3G, or ADSL or a fibre router at the office doesn’t have electricity during load shedding.

Shared server hosting environment is not suitable for applications that require the highest levels of data security due to it being shared among multiple customers.

For applications with critical security requirements, we recommend you enquire pricing from us on CHS products or the TruServ™ product range.

Acceptable Use Policy.

Accounts with many files can have an adverse effect on server performance.

The following limit applies: 200 000 files (i.e. an email, web page, image file, directory etc.), or 50 000 files per directory. Accounts exceeding the above limit will have those files and/or directories excluded from the backup system.

Using hosting servers as a personal storage facility is not permitted.

Any content stored must be directly related to the website(s) in question.

Mailboxes that build up large volumes of email without being accessed are not allowed (e.g. catchall mailboxes or bounce message mailboxes).

The primary cause of excessive disk usage can be due to customers having their catchall address enabled, yet never checking their primary account mailbox. Over time, tens of thousands of messages build up, pushing the account past our file limit.

Email older than five years may not be stored on the server.

Individual emails that are 5 MB or larger may not be stored on the server for more than 1 month.

Note: IMAP email account set-up stores all emails and attachments on the hosting server, and not your computer. Therefore mailbox space needs to managed carefully by users if they opt for using IMAP email set-up. The alternative is to set-up your mail account as a POP3 mailbox which leaves all your emails and attachments on your device instead of the hosting server at the data centre. Provided you untick the set-up option in your mail client to leave messages on the server.

If you use high volumes of email traffic it is advised that you use POP3 set-up instead of IMAP, as this will prevent you from exceeding your hosting account space allocation.

Disc over-usage is charged at R7 per 10MB.
