Hosting & Backups

Hosting & backups is where the jargon starts to get ugly and FAQ will as your "Web Department" take care of managing the servers, setting up of databases & backups so you can focus on sales & support of your customers.

Hosting is the storage space you or your clients need to rent to keep websites on the internet and normally include space for websites, its databases and the space used by mailboxes.

Prices and the amount of space on offer vary based on:

  • Where the server is located
  • What is the speed of the server providing the hosting
  • Is the server a dedicated (more expensive, but normally more stable) or a shared (performance shared with other users) server.
  • Bandwidth available for server.

Backups is the process of storing a copy of the website and its databases on an offsite location.  In the case of an emergency (server problems, hacking, user finger trouble etc) the backup can then be restored to correct problems with the website.

Hosting Options

FAQ offer 2 hosting options:

  • Hosting @ R110pm (billed at a partner rate)
    • 500Mb storage space
    • 25 x 1Gb mailboxes (Excluded from web storage)
    • Daily offsite database backups
    • Monthly offsite website backups
  • Hosting with offsite backup @ R220pm (billed at a partner rate)
    • 500Mb storage space
    • 25 x 1Gb mailboxes (Excluded from web storage)
    • Daily offsite database backups
    • Daily offsite website backups
    • Required for WordPress websites

And yes, if you rent server space directly from one of the cheap hosting providers you can do it for less, but then you also handle the slow loading websites, do your own website setups, databases, server and code maintenance and backups.
