Price Increase Notification

Being the top-rated hosting provider is not a title that comes easy, nor do we wield it lightly. It requires expertise with exceptional service. To keep our services as high class as they’ve been, we’ve made a few changes to our cost base.

Factors beyond our control left us with no choice but to increase the prices on some of our services. These price changes will take effect from May 1st 2023.

For the sake of transparency, we thought it best to let you know what the cause behind these changes are.

  • Data Centre costs have increased by about 20%.
  • The ZAR/USD exchange rate has dropped, affecting our ability to keep costs low.
  • Power prices have risen due to the diesel price surcharges for generators.

Domains on external registrars will also see a price increase. If you’d like to transfer to our primary registrar, reach out to our support engineers.

We’ve compiled a table that shows you the price structure for each service. Please have a look and familiarise yourself with the increases that affect you.
