Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

100MB (Linux Only)Best for small websites or individual email accounts, 100MB is also enough to start your first simple website

350 MB is enough space to grow, 350 MB is what you’ll need for an average-sized blog or website.

750 MB Recommended for Medium websites, 750 MB is ideal if you host photos, images, documents and other media.

Traffic This is the amount of content and media that your site displays to visitors. The more people who find and use your website, the more traffic (or bandwidth) you need. Our Premium and Premium Plus packages come with unlimited traffic.

The Personal option is our most basic package: it doesn't include SQL databases but if you only need a fairly simple website then this is the right deal.

Softhost supplies everything you need to create your own website. A free .co.za domain will help you secure your online space while our simple 1-Click Installs for WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and other content management systems means building your website is a piece of cake. And with a hosting control panel (either WebsitePanel or cPanel), you'll have no trouble managing your website once it's up and running. In fact, we'll even throw in a Google AdWords voucher to help you advertise online. (Spend R200 on Google AdWords and we’ll make it an extra R600!) And if that’s not enough, pay upfront for six months or more and you’ll receive a 5-20% discount.

There are a number of ways: You could do it yourself or you could engage a web designer and developer (can become very expensive) or you can use our new exciting Website Design Service - from just R99 per month (no upfront or hidden costs) we will create (in just two weeks), host and maintain your website. That said, designing your own website is an exciting challenge and you can spend as much time on it as you need. Choose a package that offers WordPress or a similar content management system - our 1-Click Installs will make things easy for you. You'll also need a domain name to point to your website; at Softhost, we give you one for free!

You can upgrade or downgrade your web hosting package at any time simply by logging into our Clientzone online and choosing your new hosting package. Upgrades are instant; downgrades are activated at month end if initiated before the 20th of that month. And since there are no contracts, if you want to cancel your shared hosting service then just give us a calendar month's notice - it's as simple as that.
