I had Domains.co.za on my shortlist for a while because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to spend the extra money compared to the amount I was spending on my old host. But when I finally experienced their service, I thought I should’ve made the switch sooner because they are very reliable and they have exceptional support. I really couldn’t be happier!
I have been through all the “top” or best South African web hosting companies, from the cheap web hosting companies giving you free hosting for 6 months with a free domain, to the average priced ones up to the most expensive hosting companies in South Africa and decided to write a small web hosting review about who I believe is the best website hosting company in South Africa.
I own and manage a website design company reselling hosting to our clients and managing their hosting for them. This includes maintaining security, setting up their websites, creating databases, setting up their email accounts, and so on. With this being said, having high server uptime, regularly maintained and backed up servers, and having the support when something goes south is crucial, not only for our clients but for the reputation of my own company.
Below I will give you a breakdown of a few things that I think makes Domains.co.za one of the best web hosting companies in South Africa.
This is number one on my list as this is the most important of all. Domains.co.za has hands down the best support of all the South African web hosting companies I have experienced. When I have an issue with any of my hosting services, I simply submit a ticket through their website. They will come back within minutes of the request. Yes, minutes!
I honestly think that Domains’ support is that good because their servers are running smoothly and don’t have tons of support tickets to work through every day.
I am a firm believer that you will always get what you pay for. Domains.co.za does cost a little more than the average web hosting company in South Africa, however, I am very happy to pay a small amount extra per month and know that my website, and my clients’ websites are running smoothly with minimal downtime or problems.
Domains.co.za has a wide range of web hosting services such as shared web hosting, reseller hosting, and VPS hosting. They also offer the complete range of additional services you may require such as site builders, SSL certificates, security and backup services.
They offer a 60-day money back guarantee, 99.9% uptime and they don’t lock you into a contract so that you can cancel any time if you are not completely happy with their services.
I am really pleased with the service I receive from Domains.co.za and would encourage anyone looking for reliable and affordable web hosting to try them out.
