Simple Texo Web Hosting Guide in 2021

In this article, we are going to look at Texo web hosting.

This is a South African company dealing with several internet services, and we are going to see some of them in this article.

Web hosting in South Africa is booming.

In fact, several companies are eyeing this rising market, and Texo is one of them. As the competition intensifies, the provider has devised some ways to differentiate themselves from the crowd.

To understand them, we will have to look at some of the services they offer.

Texo Products and services

Looking at their products, Texo has really done an incredible job of helping you get your business online. 

  1. All-in-One Hosting

This is a web hosting package Texo has designed to help you get your business online.

It comes with everything you need to get started. 

For example;

You can easily install WordPress, Joomla, and OpenCart among other popular scripts.

Also inside this package, there are;

  • SSD storage space – Solid State Disk (SSD) is more powerful and fast than its predecessor HDD. How? While HDDs have spinning magnetic disks, SSDs don’t have any moving parts. It can store and retrieve data electronically instead of relying on electromagnets.
  • Unmetered bandwidth – to scale your website, you need no restrictions whatsoever, that is what Texo is offering, unrestricted transfer of data.
  • Control – all of their web hosting packages come with access to FTP and SSH. This gives you complete control of your hosting environment.

This and much more make an all-in-one web hosting package so attractive.

  1. Domains

Texo is an accredited domain registrar here in South Africa. Ideally, a domain name is the address people will use to access your website.

For example;

If you wish to access Texo’s website, you’d type texo.co.za into your web browser.

That is their domain name. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to access their content. So, how do you get yours?

Well, you first need to search for its availability. Why?

It turns out, most domain names are taken, meaning someone else has registered it as their own. And once that is done, you cannot take it as your own ( a domain name is only registered once).

Once you have searched for it, the next step is buying it. Here is the breakdown of Texo’s domain pricing of the top 4 domain names.

DOMAINREGISTERTRANSFERRENEW
.co.zaR95.00R25.00R105.00
.comR250.00R250.00R250.00
.org.zaR105.00R105.00R105.00
.net.zaR95.00R25.00R95.00

You may be wondering what is ‘transfer’ and ‘renew’.

  • Transfer – this is when you wish to move your website from one web hosting provider to another.
  • Renew – you own a domain for at least a year. After that, you need to renew your ownership
