Afrihost - Total Rubbish - Do not waste you hard earned money there!

If you work hard for your money and wake up in the small hours of the morning to work on your systems hosted at Afrihost, don't bother! Our main server has been down several mornings in a row now and their simple answer - I just r...Read Moreeset your server and it should be ok now. Really reset and should be ok in the same sentence, when you are taking about the server that feeds your family - NOT ACCEPTABLE ! - The server shuold not have been down to start with people!Less

Very poor service

Last week Friday I migrated from CoolIdeas ISP to Afrihost. I thought I would get a better experience but sadly the laxidaisy attitude that Afrihost and Vumatel has is disappointing. Afrihost has no sense of urgency and relies on ...Read Morea mechanical ticketing system between themselves and vumatel. They would rather create a ticket for every single issue rather than have a conpmete resolution fornthe customer which in turn drags out the issue for days at a time. Very sad. Very sad indeed. Im going to give Afrihost another week. If my line is still not active and my IP mapped correctly im moving to another ISP. Welcome to trashy South African customer service.Less

Very poor response to line issues

I am a recent client of Afrihost and joined them to hopefully get a better service than from TELKOM direct. What a joke. I signed up for an 8Mbps service and am lucky if I get 1mbps. Logged a call with them on 19th August. Its now...Read More 28th and still unresolved. All I get back are messages saying its being logged with TELKOM without an ETA. Phone up to escalate and hold forebver and then get cut-off. Very soon now I will be an ex-customer as I may as well deal directly with TELKOM.Less

AFRIHOST Cheats their clients.STAY AWAY

Do not use Afrihost. they sell you a WIFI LTE contract and dont deliver. Constantly down and you cannot see how much Data you have used. Their service is the worst I have seen. The support staff is totally useless and clueless.
I...Read More have now been capped and dont know why. had to pay R150.00 just to get online again.Less

S**t Hosting - Zero Accountability for Uptime

Have 3 business websites running off one of their moderate managed clouds.

Occasionally would experience bouts of downtime worst-case was 1 full hour during peak traffic.

So I thought maybe it's due to the high-load of traff...Read Moreic, let me upgrade to a better package.

I upgraded to their Platinum Enterprise Managed Cloud @ R2,490 per month.

Guess what, same f*** s**t starting to happen,

And then it starts working, but never any accountability or explanation. Just a oh 'It's back up'

Afrihost worst service ever

I have logged a problem with my fibre connection with Afrihost. After 2 months and 40 emails I have not received any clarity on the problem or anyone attemting to assist me. Just useless staff directing me back to the same person that don't know.
