We will discuss the types, features, and prices.

And in the end, you will learn how to pick the best web hosting package.

See, there are very many types of website hosting here in South Africa. And fortunately, Xneelo offers almost all of them.

With that in mind, let us look at popular types of web hosting in South Africa. And then look at the prices on Xneelo.

Sounds fair enough?

Let us get right into it.

Types of web hosting and the cost on Xneelo

Shared Web Hosting

The cheapest option for website owners who want to use a shared server is called ‘shared’ or ‘reseller’. 

This type usually includes many websites being hosted on the same server. 

It is more affordable because it does not include dedicated features and resources for each website.

In fact, Xneelo got shared hosting packages starting from R99 per month.

With this basic Xneelo hosting package, you get;

  • 5 GB SSD storage
  • 5 SSD databases
  • 100 mailboxes
  • 100 email aliases
  • 1 FTP account
  • 10 multiple domains

The other Xneelo hosting packages include;

  • 15 FTP accounts
  • 75 multiple domains

 

What is more?

All Xneelo hosting packages (shared) comes with the following features;

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • HTTP/2 enabled
  • unlimited traffic
  • spam filtering
  • Webmail
  • Control Panel
  • Popular CMSs supported
  • WordPress easy install 

Among others.

WordPress hosting 

This is a type of hosting in South Africa that falls under Content management system (CMS) Hosting.

With this hosting, the hosting company provides software such as Drupal or Joomla for those who want more control over their site without worrying about server maintenance etc., but they have to take care of installing, configuring, maintaining it themselves which can be dauntingly time-consuming depending on how often updates occur. 

For example;

Instead of you doing everything from downloading and installing WordPress on your domain, the hosting provider does everything for you.

This is also called managed WordPress hosting in that case where someone else installs the CMS then takes care of all the backend administration tasks like when and what needs updating.

And this is one of the Xneelo hosting packages.

The cost of Xneelo wordpress hosting is R149 per month.

This package gives you;

  • 15GB SSD storage
  • 1 WordPress website
  • 1 temporary domain
  • Unlimited traffic

Additionally, you get access to DDoS protection & mitigation, Free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate, and Firewall (WAF) optimized for WordPress among other perks.

Dedicated Web Hosting

The most expensive option but also one of the best choices if you have a big budget to spend or want your site’s performance to be at its peak. 

This type includes an entire server that is dedicated to your site and provides you with the features that suit it.

And this is also one of the Xneelo hosting packages.

There are two types;

a). Unmanaged dedicated hosting – here, you handle everything from configuration to maintenance. With this one, you pay from R1195 per month and you get;

  • Unlimited traffic
  • Intel Xeon E3-1230
  • 16 GB ECC RAM
  • 2 x 1 TB Micron 1300 SSD
  • single power supply
  • Software RAID 1

b). Managed dedicated servers – Xneelo will handle everything, thus costs more than unmanaged. Pay R1295 per month and get;

  • monthly contract
  • 500 GB traffic
  • Intel Xeon Quad Core 3.2GHz
  • 8 GB ECC RAM
  • 500 GB SSD
  • single power supply

That is the lowest Xneelo hosting package as far as servers are concerned.

Virtual Private Server (VPS)

A type of server where a company rents out part or all of their servers for use by others, usually in blocks of time. 

This is similar to Dedicated Web Hosting but less expensive because there are more users sharing one server which results in a lower monthly fee per user.

Co-location

The process whereby an organization builds its own data center on property owned by them so they can manage these facilities themselves from start to finish while also providing access via high bandwidth connections such as T-carrier/Ethernet and fiber optic lines. 

Unlike VPS this does not charge for a block of time usage like with Dedicated Web Hosting.

This is also one of the Xneelo hosting packages. And theirs start from R7800 per month for a full rack and R4810 per month for half-rack.

The full rack comes with;

  • 47U in a 19” rack
  • monthly contract
  • free same-day setup
  • traffic: 20c per GB (optional)
  • 20A (2 x 32A breaker feed)
  • power: R2.19 Per kWh
  • IPv4: /28 network (13 usable IPs)
  • 100 Mbps uplink
  • 24/7 unattended biometric access

Cloud Computing

The process whereby a company rents out data centers to others who need them and then charges for the block of time usage like with Dedicated Web Hosting.

But instead, it is more expensive because companies are charged per server utilization, bandwidth used, storage space needed, CPU cycles consumed, etc., not just one monthly fee per user as in VPS hosting. 

This is similar to Co-location except you can’t manage your own servers.

So have someone else do that for you while also paying higher fees which leads to better hardware such as faster processors and larger hard drive capacities available on-demand or via pre-purchase contracts.
