A web hosting service is a type of internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. Web Hosts are companies that provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients.
The scope of web hosting services varies greatly. The most basic is web page and small-scale file hosting, where files can be uploaded via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or a Web interface. The files are usually delivered to the Web “as is” or with minimal processing. A complex site calls for a more comprehensive package that provides database support and application development platforms (e.g. PHP, Java, or ASP.NET). These facilities allow customers to write or install scripts for applications like forums and content management. Also, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is typically used for e-commerce.
At theimagehouse we believe in providing a complete solution for your company. This allows for easy management and less stress as you deal with just one company. We have partnered with one of South Africa’s best hosting companies (Hetzner) in order to bring you the best in quality and service.
What if I don’t have a website address?
If you do not have a web address, simply visit click here and search to see if your chosen domain name is available or not. Once you have chosen a domian name, simply contact us to do the registration. Domain registrations are FREE if you are hosting with us.
What if I am being hosted with another ISP.
If you want to host with us then we will send a request to your existing hosting company to release your domain. You must inform your existing hosting company and give them permission to accept the transfer. This process generally takes a few days. Please remember that your account with your existing hosting company must be up to date for the transfer to be successful.
Can I pay month to month?
Unfortunately we do not offer month to month debit orders. An invoice will be sent in December for the following year which will be due buy the end of January for that year. Hosting must be paid in full for the year, which is NON REFUNDABLE.
Can I cancel my hosting?
Yes. Should you no longer require hosting or a domian name, simple email us requesting a cancellation or deletion. No refunds will be allocated for cancelled, transfered or deleted domains.
