South Africa VPS hosting can seem expensive to some, but the truth is that you get what you pay for in the web hosting industry. Think about the aspects of your current hosting service that are important to you and then ask yourself if your existing company can meet those needs—or if they even have them. If not, now’s the time to invest in a South Africa VPS from Hosting Solutions, so take a look at these seven reasons why you should choose us over anyone else offering this type of service in South Africa!
1) The benefits of investing in South Africa
Higher level of support – From hardware troubleshooting to software configuration, 24/7 support is offered. This is normally something that has to be purchased separately from traditional hosting providers. You’ll also be able to make use of fast servers and lightning-quick connections so that your users will never experience downtime or any slow-loading pages.
All of these come at an affordable price. For most people, opting for South Africa VPS would result in big savings over other hosting solutions like shared and dedicated hosting, because you can purchase resources for your business (server space, bandwidth, etc.) as needed rather than having more resources than necessary. This allows many businesses to have fewer servers running on their networks than they would with traditional shared and dedicated options – which can lead to some huge cost savings!
2) Tech support
No one likes to think about server downtime. In South Africa, which has some of the most cutting-edge infrastructures for hosting, there are still plenty of issues with Internet access and localized outages. And no matter where your server is based, it is likely to go down from time to time. You can minimize downtime by investing in a South African Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting solution like Linux cloud services.
3) Control over your server
With your own server, you have full control over it. If you’re using shared hosting, and someone else makes changes to your settings, or if they go down for maintenance, or even just upgrade their hardware; all of that can have an impact on your site and can cause it to function improperly.
A virtual private server provides total control with zero interference from anyone else. When using shared hosting, there are many unknowns; when using South Africa VPS hosting, there are none. When your web host is non-responsive or unavailable due to scheduled downtime (for upgrades or maintenance), it doesn’t matter when your website goes down as well because it will still be up!
4) Performance upgrades
While most hosting services feature server upgrades and performance enhancements, a Virtual Private Server allows you to gain these advantages without affecting your privacy or that of your company.
So, if, for example, your business is taking off and suddenly experiencing an increase in web traffic, South Africa VPS provides you with what’s known as private-server flexibility—meaning it enables you to quickly add memory (RAM) and storage space by upgrading only those resources.
A common misconception about shared servers is that they’re more powerful than Virtual Private Servers, but actually they often have no way of determining how much processing power or RAM other users are using on any given day—which means they can’t offer nearly as much space or performance power on their systems as South Africa virtual servers can.
5) Proximity to the datacenter
This can be important for US-based firms that may want to protect their data from NSA snooping. Using an offshore VPS hosting company like Onlive Server will make it easier for your server to stay within legal boundaries. But if you’re not worried about that. Then close proximity to your Johannesburg, South Africa data center is more of a pro than a con.
Many companies prefer their data center to be as close as possible so that loading speeds are quicker and response times are lower for their clients. The closer your data center is to your users, the better your service will perform. That being said, every millisecond counts when loading web pages or applications; even if response times are better on servers located across the world. They might not be significantly faster than servers located 30 miles away.
6) You get what you pay for
As with any other service, if it’s too good to be true it probably is. There are hundreds of providers offering very cheap services, but not all offer decent quality and reliability.
Cheap servers often have little to no redundancy built into them. Meaning they have little fault tolerance and will inevitably crash – potentially taking your websites down with them. In short, cheap services are typically that way for a reason: they’re cheap! Go with quality over price; it will save you time and money in the long run.

And if your business needs are simple but have high traffic requirements, then VPS might be perfect for your business. You’ll get all those services at a budget-friendly price and with great performance guarantees. The most important thing is that you can always contact experts whenever needed which will save you time and money.
