Web Site Hosting Services
We offer reliable and scalable web site hosting solutions to our clients. These hosting options range from cost-effective entry point web hosting (shared Linux hosting) which can be upgraded at any time to dedicated server hosting options should your needs grow.
Web hosting is the business service of providing storage space, connectivity, and the services necessary to serve files for a website on the internet.
Web hosting offers the ability to host your website on a managed server at a low monthly cost in a shared hosting environment. Shared servers in the secure data centres we utilise; provide individual web sites with redundant connectivity, 99.9% uptime and 24/7 monitoring, and regular backups.
If you want to get your business or practice promoted on-line; or even transform your hobby into an on-line business, we can help you accomplish that.
Every professional web presence starts with reliable hosting. And we can offer you just that.
Having your own web presence will help you speak to your audience in an effective way, share your services or products/interests with others. Which will find you more customers for your business or hobby.

If you move office space and you are hosting with us, instead of having your own server array for hosting in a leased building – you won’t need to uninstall your hosting server array, you won’t need to pack it up, and move it, and have it reinstalled at your new office complex.
All you’ll need to do is to plug your office network into the internet again at the new premises; and off you go again, with zero time lost to installation or reconfiguration delays in the new office building.
The data centres we utilize for the hosting of our client websites feature redundant power (no site downtime due to load shedding), HVAC, fire detection systems and are monitored 24/7. Backups are made daily.
Shared server hosting environment is not suitable for applications that require the highest levels of data security due to it being shared amongst multiple customers.
We can also offer Managed Dedicated Server solutions with greater protection in this regard (providing that you do not in turn use the server as a shared hosting server, e.g. Web hosting reseller).
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, webpage, 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 attachements 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 accout 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.
