Local Hosting Launched!

You’ve asked for it, we listened, we implemented. It’s finally here.

Gridhost is excited to introduce it’s Local Web Hosting Packages. So local is our new line, if you put your nose really close the screen and breath in, you can almost smell the charcoal smoking those lamb chops on the braai outside your house overlooking Clifton 4th.

Ok, well maybe not Clifton because all our Local Hosting is managed in our secure Datacenter in JHB, but we swear the braai smell is completely real!

So whats the difference?

Well, it’s pretty easy. Our Standard Web Hosting is maintained by our tech’s remotely and is housed in our International Datacenter, while our Local offerings are hosted a couple of meters down the road from our JHB office in a secure, state of the art Datacenter.

As bandwidth prices are considerably higher here at home rather than abroad, we needed to get constructive with our packages. This is why we spaced them out across a range to fit any need no matter how intense the requirements are. Our Personal Package is the most affordable plan we have starting at R26.95 with ample features, automated backups and SPAM filtering built right in.

Bellow is a summary of our local plans on offer:

    Will you be doing reseller local packages?

    Hi Lara,

    Yes, this is most certainly on our list for the future. You can however resell our local hosting packages to your clients should you wish to.
