Hosting & Domain Registration

Hosting and Domains is a service provided by us that allows your website to be stored on our servers which makes all your pages viewable to the World Wide Web. If you don’t have an existing ISP (internet service provider) – then you most definitely will need hosting.


Your domain (URL) is connected to your hosting account – so you can’t have one without the other.


If you are currently with a hosting company but would like to move your hosting to us, we can migrate your site across at a small additional costs.

Your domain name is your company name (www.yourname.co.za or com). It’s imperative you book this early so you don’t lose this to another company. When asking us to book your domain, please supply us with a few different name preferences, in case your first choice is already taken.


When we register a new domain for the first time, the domain will usually be active within a couple of hours. This depends on how fast your ISP update their DNS tables. Below you will find a general guideline with regard to the time frame for popular domain extensions:


.co.za -> 6 – 24 hours


.com / .net / .org -> 3 – 24 hours


.org.za -> 2 – 5 business days.
