We're a top growing web host

At Hostking our mission and our passion is to provide the most affordable world-class web hosting in South Africa. We offer many different types of hosting plans and we understand the importance of choosing the right web host for your website. The following are things you should know about Hostking that will hopefully convince you that we are the right host for you.


How we got started

Hostking was founded in 2011. We started small and humble, we still are humble. Our aim was to build an automated platform that would make Shared and VPS hosting fast and simple. And we did. In a world where time is literally money, we wanted our customers to save on both by providing them a fast Shared and Cloud hosting platform with enough features to virtually do anything. And then it all just happened, we grew up fast. Suddenly our small little company turned into a well-recognized Hosting provider known for our amazing customer support. Without successful clients, we wouldn't be around, which is what pushes us to provide the best service possible without compromising on quality or features.
"Your success is our success."


Hostking goes Global.

We’ve added support for websites in currencies and countries for majority of our customers who reside in those areas.

We Offer Affordable Hosting without 2-3 Year Contracts
Unlike other hosts that lock you down to two-three year contracts, we offer you affordable web hosting with monthly, quarterly or annual billing. Do you know where a host will be in 2 to 3 years? We want you to be able to get your web presence up and running without a huge upfront investment.
We Do Linux and Windows.
We focus on offering affordable Linux or Windows Web hosting. That's all we do and that is all we will ever do. We don't try to be all things to all people and stretch our resources thin trying to support everything. Because of our focus, if you are looking for world-class Web Hosting Provider, we promise that everybody in our company is devoted to offering the best Web hosting solution for you.
What makes us THE BEST web host
We may not be the largest hosting provider out there, but we see that as a strong point. We're small enough to stay in touch with our customers, and we will never treat you like a number. Our team is passionate about customer satisfaction and we know that our success lies in the success of our customers.
We Focus on Web hosting Stability and Reliability
Using powerful servers that are beefy enough to service the requirements of our customers. Our servers use 64 bit software, are dual 16 core (32 vCPUs), have 256 GB RAM, and a Ceph Shared SSD Cluster. We don't skimp on our servers because we believe you deserve better.
