Client reviews

    Our company has been with HOSTAFRICA for 7 and a half years. Being a florist, I am not 100% tech savvy but the wonderful staff at HOSTAFRICA always assist effectively and efficiently so that we can make sure that there are no interruptions to our website. Thank you HOSTAFRICA for being so awesome!
  • All you need!

    Although you build your own website, HOSTAFRICA make it seamless. The support response is incredibly fast - even on weekends. I’m paying R99 for support, storage, 25 emails, and cpanel also, I’m using their light speed server for Wordpress. Over and above that, they put you in the right direction to get your website optimal as well as getting your emails to end up in an inbox and not spam. My mobile page rating score is 94 out of 100.
  • Excellent live support

    HOSTAFRICA has excellent support. Their live chat support is always available and they answer questions quickly. The support person even phoned me after one of our chats to make sure I got the answer. Pretty awesome. Their registration process and backend is easy to follow as well.

LiteSpeed Optimised Servers

Our WordPress server solution offers an additional speed boost with the LSCache plugin. This plugin packs a powerful punch that tells your server to statically cache your dynamic WordPress pages. That means much faster load times for your website’s pages.

Frequently asked questions

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

WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) available today. It started out as a blogging platform but has since grown to be a website builder and ecommerce platform as well. It’s extremely customisable and user friendly, which is one of the reasons why it’s so popular.

WordPress hosting is a type of hosting that has been optimised maximally for WordPress to run as smoothly as possible. The packages include a variety of tools and services specifically tailored to WordPress. The toolkit is more often than not already installed, if not readily available for you.

It can run on any web server, including LiteSpeed, which is a top performer in web server speeds and optimisation.

Two of the simplest ways involve just a couple of clicks.

Method 1:

  1. In cPanel navigate to the Softaculous App Installer
  2. From there find WordPress and install it in one click.

Method 2:

  1. Download WordPress from the official website and unzip the package
  2. Create a database for it on your server then allow yourself all privileges
  3. Upload the files to a location on your server where you want them to be
  4. Run the installation script and it should be installed in the location you uploaded it to

Technically, yes. Although, if you want the website to see the light of day you’ll need web hosting. Think of web hosting as the brick and mortar building of your website. If that building isn’t there with your website inside of it, then your website is just floating around in the ether.

Yes, you can. All it takes is a simple site migration. This allows you to transfer your entire database as well as your files to the new host. It can be done and operational within a day.

At HOSTAFRICA, we aim to make our platform as welcoming as possible, for everyone. We’ve handled plenty of site migrations to our platform and we’ll do plenty more.

The main difference is how the server is configured. WordPress hosting provides the space, resources and tools for your website to function at its peak and is optimised especially for WordPress.

Some of the notable benefits of WordPress hosting are:

  • It’s been specially optimised for WordPress, with enhanced performance and caching.
  • It includes WordPress Toolkit and WordPress CLI, making the management of your website a breeze.
  • Easily create staging environments to test any major (or minor) changes.
  • Daily malware scans and backups (this is beside our own backups and security measures)

If you’re planning on publishing a WordPress website, WordPress hosting is ideal for you. It has everything you’ll need to streamline your WordPress experience and create a seamless blogging environment.

WordPress itself is secure. As with most open-source initiatives, however, plugins, themes, and user access rights could cause some vulnerabilities. This of course means you should be conscious of what you add to your website while taking your security seriously. It’s a good idea to know basic security measures.
