Frequently Asked Questions
In order to have a website and/or email address publicly accessible on the internet you require a domain name and hosting.
Think of a domain name (www.yourbusiness.com) as a street address that helps people find you and hosting as the house where your website and emails reside.
Web hosting provides you with the house (storage and other server resources) and the connection to the public infrastructure (data center) so that when people arrive at your address there is not just an empty lot.
Shared hosting is a type of entry-level web hosting where multiple user accounts (websites) are hosted on a single physical server.
As multiple accounts share the resources (Disk Space, CPU, RAM, Bandwidth, etc.) of a single physical server it significantly lowers the costs and barrier of entry for most businesses to host their own websites and email accounts.
Shared hosting is a lot cheaper than renting or owning your own dedicated server and also paying for server space in a data center.
We have plans that cater for various use cases and business needs, from personal blogs or small startups to larger businesses and online stores.
The plan that you select is completely dependent on server resources you require. We have a wide selection of web hosting plans that offer varied resources based on requirements.
On our hosting plan pricing tables we do outline which use cases each plan would be best suited for.
If you require any assistance with selecting a plan, you can reach our hosting experts via live chat or email at [email protected]
Need to increase or decrease your hosting resources? Not a problem. You can upgrade or downgrade your hosting plan via the client area at https://secure.aosa.co.za/clientarea.php.
You can also open a ticket or email us with a request to upgrade/downgrade your plan for you.
Disk Space / Storage – The amount of storage allocated to your plan on the server drives to store your files, databases and emails.
Bandwidth – The amount of data that can be transferred to and from your account within a given month. All of our shared accounts offer unlimited bandwidth.
vCPU – The amount of processing power allocated to your plan. 1 vCPU is usually equal to 1 CPU core.
RAM – The amount of RAM (Random Access Memory) assigned to your hosting plan. RAM is used by a number of processes such as email services, caching, PHP and more.
I/O – The disk input/output speed limit per account. If this throughput limit is reached, processes are slowed down in order for the account to stay within the limit.
Inodes – The number of files and folders that you can have on your hosting account.

Once your hosting account order has been completed, we will send you an email containing your server IP and the recommended nameservers to use in order to connect your domain name to your hosting account.
Please find instructions for configuring nameservers on the most popular registrars at https://secure.aosa.co.za/knowledgebase/2004/DNS—Nameserver.
For domain names registered by or transferred to us, default nameservers will be pre-configured, requiring no additional effort from your side.
We would also recommend making use of a Content Delivery Network (CDN) such as Cloudflare (free plans available) to further improve the performance and security of your website.

For more information on how to create email accounts in cPanel, please visit https://secure.aosa.co.za/knowledgebase/2037/How-to-Create-Email-Account-in-cPanel.html
Besides the number of email accounts that you can create on your plan, we have the following restrictions on cPanel email accounts:
Email Account Size Limit – No single email account can exceed 5GB in size. For larger email accounts, we would recommend signing up for our Business Email Hosting or Enterprise Email Hosting services.
Hourly Email Sending Limit – Depending on the plan you choose, you will be able to send between 100 and 250 emails per hour from a single hosting account (all email addresses combined). These limits are in place to prevent spamming and should be more than sufficient for most use cases.
Please also note that email accounts created on your web hosting account (cPanel) contribute to your inode and drive storage usage.
Solid State Drives (SSD’s) are a new generation of mass storage device that contains no moving parts and offers several benefits over traditional mechanical (spinning platter) hard disks.
SSD’s have more resistance to physical shock, consume less power, have much quicker access times and significantly lower latency compared to mechanical hard disks.
Numerous benchmarks have shown that SSD’s can perform random input/output operations under high loads up to 20 times faster than mechanical hard disks.
NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) SSD’s can offer up to 5 times the performance of SATA (Serial ATA) SSD’s as they operate through the much faster PCIe inteface.
By default, none of our shared hosting plans allow for SSH (Secure Shell) access as it poses a significant security risk.
We can however enable jailed SSH on accounts upon request. Please open a ticket and specify your reason for requiring SSH.
Please note that we will grant SSH access at our own discretion on a case by case basis. We are under no obligation to grant SSH access.
If you only require SSH to securely transfer files, we would recommend using FTPS instead.
