Hosting Plans

Brand Your Presence

The way for any business to achieve success on the internet is to establish a brand. In order to do this, you must have a great looking, website. It will give your customers the right message about the type of business you run and why they should trust you.

The goal of branding your company is to ensure that potential customers know exactly who your brand is, and that you look professional. Just like you’d have a custom URL for your website rather than something like mybusiness.wordpress.com, you also need a custom email address to provide consistent branding.

Choose a website hosting package based on your business needs. Includes email accounts, unlimited traffic and storage space for your website files.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. When can we get started?

You can start as soon as you are ready to register your domain.

2. What is a Domain Name?

Domain names are used to identify one or more IP addresses. For example, the domain name microsoft.com represents about a dozen IP addresses. Domain names are used in URLs to identify particular Web pages. For example, in the URL http://www.pcwebopedia.com/index.html, the domain name is pcwebopedia.com.

3. How much does it cost?

Protechnology has various plans to choose from starting at R100 per month. See our Price schedule here

4. Are there any extra costs involved in hosting a secure site (i.e. having a SSL certificate)?

Yes, you’ll need to get a digital certificate from a Certificate Authority such as VeriSign or Thawte. This will be an additional cost over and above your hosting fee. Please contact us if you need to set up your SSL certificate.

5 How do I pay for my Web Hosting?

You can choose to pay by any of the following methods:

– Monthly via Debit Order (Payfast) Preferred Method

– Monthly via Visa/MasterCard (Payfast)

  • Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

6. What is data transfer or bandwidth traffic? How does a traffic limit fit into this?

Data transfer or bandwidth is the amount of information that your visitors download from your site. Each time someone visits your site the information contained on your website is transferred from the web server to your visitors computer over their internet connection.

For example let’s assume the following: each of your visitors view 4 HTML pages each visit; your HTML pages (including images) average 30 KB each; you get 500 visitors each week. Your site will then transfer 60 000 KB (4 x 30 x 500) each week (i.e. 60 MB per week).

A monthly traffic limit is the amount of data or bandwidth that you are allowed to transfer in any given month. Generally if you reach your traffic limit your site will either become unavailable until the beginning of the next month or you will be charged for each MB of traffic that you move over and above your traffic limit.

7. How long before my website is ready?

Our estimated turn around time for registrations is 1 Hour, however it can take between 24 and 48hrs. Delays can sometimes occur, but we do all we can to speed up the process.

8. I want 100% up-time. I don’t want my site to be down ever.

Unfortunately no hosting company can provide 100% up-time. Even the biggest and best multi-million rand and dollar sites go down from time to time due to various unforeseen circumstances. You need to make sure that your web hosting company has done the best they can to ensure the least downtime possible. Make sure that they have systems in place to continually monitor all of the websites they host so that they know if there is a problem as soon as possible.
