Introduction

Afrihost is a large hosting company and they are best known for helping lower broadband prices in South Africa by a huge margin. They recently introduced cloud based hosting services, making use of MTN’s data centres. Afrihost offers a wide variety of hosting packages, including both Linux and Windows based solutions.

Entry Level Shared Hosting

With some very competitive prices these packages are ideal for people who want to host a small website. Only one domain is allowed and the Bronze and Silver packages do not have MySQL databases. A free .co.za domain is included, making the Bronze Home a good choice for people who want to set up a small website for only R108 per year with no additional costs.
