What is web hosting?

A web hosting service is a type of internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their own websites accessible via the World Wide Web.

Confused with all the web hosting companies out there?

Throughout my development career, I have worked with a number of hosting companies – some of which I wouldn’t work with ever again, even if I get paid to do so… But there are a couple that I would highly recommend, though:

  1. Texo
    • Their servers are located in the US and UK, but the company itself is based in South Africa
    • A small company offering great (fast) support (mostly by the owner himself)
    • The WordPress MAX hosting package is highly recommended, at R75/month
  2. Hetzner
    • A reliable South African based hosting company with servers in South Africa and Germany
    • A big company, sometimes resulting in slower response times from the support team
    • The Business Basic hosting package is highly recommended, at R99/month (prices have remained stable for quite a number of years)

Need any help with registering your domain name or setting up your hosting account and email addresses? This service is included for free if you order a complete website package from malia web cafe, but can also be ordered as a seperate service.
