Superfast Hosting Infrastructure

Our servers are optimized for speed and reliability. We make use of Litespeed as a web server to ensure content is served fast. CloudLinux helps keep our servers reliable by preventing a single user from abusing the server.

Our friendly and efficient support staff are expertly trained to answer any questions you may have no matter what time you happen to have them.

Unlimited Mailboxes and Databases

We do not limit the amount of mailboxes (email accounts) or databases you can create. Many other web hosts enforce limits and have additional charges if you require more.

cPanel control panel

industry leading control panel

Elitehost gives all accounts access to the leading control panel software on the market: cPanel. This powerful package puts control of your entire site at your finger tips. Making it easy to manage your hosting account from creating email accounts, setting up subdomains, MySQL databases, viewing your web statistics and more.

Migrate to Elitehost

We can easily migrate your website over to our servers if you are currently hosting with another provider. If your site currently runs on a cPanel control panel, we can take a full backup and simply restore this on our systems, this would be free. If your site runs on a custom or other control panel we can still help.

You will need to contact us after placing your order or include exising cPanel login details in the order notes. We can also handle the migration of your domain names over to our management which will ensure minimal downtime during the transfer process. Please contact us if you would like to discuss a transfer over to Elitehost.

Files and Backups

Easy File Management

The online file manager allows you to upload, create or delete files, organize files in folders, extract files and change file permissions.

Multiple FTP Accounts

There is no need to give developers full access to your account. You can limit FTP users to specific directories by setting up multiple FTP accounts.

File Security

We implement a number of custom scripts to keep your data secure. We also run PHP in your username, limiting your exposure to other users.

Multi-Site Hosting

You can run multiple websites from one hosting package. Our plus package lets you host 3 websites, while our Pro package allows you to host 7.

Servers and Network

Fast Servers

We use only top of the line Dell servers, installed and configured by our in-house expert system admins. These are housed at Teraco in Johannesburg and run on a redundant network.

Security

Our network is secured by strict firewalls and servers are protected by multiple security enhancements including mod_security, Ksplice, CloudLinux, CageFS and PHP hardening. Client and network security is our top priority.

Advanced Statictics

Many SEOs prefer cPanel because of the amount of information it provides about web traffic. Web statistics can be generated by three different statistics generators. In addition, logs of errors encountered by website visitors, bandwidth tracking, and even raw FTP access logs are available via the cPanel interface.

If you're unsure please contact sales.

I’ve been told to secure my shopping website hosting with an SSL certificate, how do I do this?
