All you need to know about HOSTAFRICA's reseller programs
We currently offer the following reseller programs:
Resell VPS/Cloud servers
If you are looking to start your own cloud server business, then the VPS reseller program is the best fit for you. Instead of starting from scratch, which would require buying, setting up, and managing infrastructure yourself, you can just resell our fine-tuned Linux and Windows servers. Get started with just R299, and enjoy up to 20% off our list prices!
Resell web hosting
With the web hosting reseller program, you can host your clients’ websites and email servers. There are 4 different packages to choose from, with each offering different levels of storage and number of cPanel accounts. However, all the tiers come with unlimited MySQL databases, unlimited traffic, and unlimited email addresses! The whole sign up process takes less than 5 minutes!
With a small signup fee of R299, you can become a HOSTAFRICA domain reseller. You get: discounted domain prices, seamless WHMCS integration, and our world-class support! Your clients can log in to their respective billing areas, to view the status of their domain/order, and browse products.
Resell cloud backups
With cyberattacks on the rise, having redundant backups is a need-of-the-hour. This HOSTAFRICA reseller program uses Acronis, an industry-leading solution to archive, backup, and protect data.

Adding resources as a reseller
We give resellers complete control and flexibility over what they include in their subscription plans. To facilitate growth and scalability, we also give resellers the ability to add resources on-the-fly. This means that you don’t have to worry if your customer-base suddenly grows 10 times; you just have to obtain more resources!
For example, we currently offer up to 9 packages for our VPS, cloud, and Windows servers. Depending on the number of virtual CPU cores, RAM, and storage you require, you can choose the appropriate package. However, if no package meets your needs, you can place an order with customised specifications. You can also add more cores, RAM, SSD, and IPs etc. to your server at a later time (e.g. when the number of visitors increase 10x).
Similarly, you can also add resources, or select add-ons for your reseller hosting accounts. You can choose more SSD storage, additional cPanel accounts, custom name-servers, or an SSL certificate.
Lastly, if you want to migrate existing accounts from a different provider, then we have got you covered. Our experienced migration team has helped migrate thousands of sites, for hundreds of clients. It doesn’t matter which control panel is being used; we can handle migrations from cPanel/ DirectAdmin/ Plesk/ CentOS Panel/ Interworx, or any other control panel or hosting company.

Yes, they are. At HOSTAFRICA, security is our top-most priority. While VPS resellers are responsible for securing their own servers, we provide the following security measures for reseller web hosting servers. Note, that we are not responsible for your client’s website security.
However, we do offer free optional SSL certificates to boost your web hosting reselling. SSL certificates encrypt data, as it flows between servers and client browsers, making it indecipherable for everyone other than the intended receiver. This ensures that all customer information, like payment details, passwords, and account numbers always stay protected.
Moreover, we perform automated incremental backups of all web hosting servers and data. With ransomware attacks on the rise, doing so is imperative. All in all, we guarantee 99.99% uptime for your customers’ websites.
We source our hardware infrastructure from industry-leading providers, which is tried and tested for high availability and reliability. We follow an active patching approach, and regularly scan our entire infrastructure for any vulnerabilities and/or risks.
Last, but not least, we perform active, 24/7 monitoring of all our web servers. This ensures early detection of any potential attacks, which significantly reduces your chances of your web hosting getting compromised.
