Website Hosting

Website and Email Hosting solutions for businesses and individuals Website Hosting at eStartIn order for a business or individual to create a website and email accounts at eStart, you will need to subscribe to a Website Hosting plan. What this means is we rent you space on one of our servers which allows you to create and upload a website, create email accounts and allows your clients or friends and family to see your products or photos and communicate with you by email. You then pay a monthly or annual “Hosting fee” to keep the website and email online. Each Website Hosting plan is different in terms of the limits and features it offers, and this will be determined by your needs. eStart makes it possible to start creating your online presence at R10 per month (prepaid for a year at a cost of R120 per year). However, should your needs grow, upgrading to another package is very easy. And all web hosting packages include access to website hosting space and e-mail accounts, while we make it easy to create your first website by offering free access to a Website Builder application as well as several free Content Management System packages like Joomla and WordPress, which can be installed from your cPanel Hosting interface with a few clicks eStart does not lock you into a contract, to cancel just give one calendar month notice. You can pay by Debit Order, Bank Transfer, EFT, Cash Deposit, Credit Card, Paypal and even Moneybookers/Skrill. And if you pay one year in advance for web hosting on the Easy, Basic, Standard and Reseller Hosting plans, then you will receive 10% discount. This is also similar in the case of Reseller Hosting, but here we bill the Reseller for the use of the hosting services on a monthly or annual basis and the Reseller collects from his/her own clients – we do not bill the Hosting Reseller’s clients

To start using your web hosting package and put your business online:

Order Website Hosting

Where do I start?

I want an Email Address or a Website

You will need all of these:

  1. A Domain Name. A domain name is like a street address so emails and website visitors will know where to go, and you will need to renew and pay for it every year.
  2. A Hosting Package. You will also need to subscribe to a Hosting Package which you will pay for monthly or yearly. This is like a rental space that exists to provide all services like email and website, using the domain name you own.
  3. Order and Pay. To order both hosting and domain name, go to estart.co.za, choose a hosting package with the functionality you need, and click on the “Sign Up Now” button. It will then ask you for the domain name you want to use and you can search for available domains using this form
