The hosting is charged on a Pro-rata bases. And NB: domains are not included for Free. You pay for each domain separately.

Prorata Billing explained: billing is calculated based on the day of the month you sign up for the package.

For example:

If you order this hosting package on the 18th day of the month and there are 31 days in the month, we divided the full price by 31 days. So R30.00/31 = R0.9677 per day.

Then, R0.9677 x 13 remaining days = pro-rata cost of R12.58 approx.

Frequently asked questions

Paid per year. Renewable anytime.

SSL, which stands for Secure Sockets Layer, is a cyber-security protocol that digitally encrypts information sent from a browser to a server. SSL certificates are used to protect sensitive information like credit card numbers, usernames, passwords, email addresses, and more. A website with an SSL certificate is identified using a number of trust indicators, like “https” and the padlock icon in the browser bar, a site seal from a reputable Certificate Authority (CA), and a green bar that wraps around the URL on more premium certificates
(DV) SSL Certificate? A Domain Validated (DV) SSL certificate is a quick and easy way to secure a domain, as the Certificate Authority (CA) issuing the certificate only requires verification that the recipient actually owns the domain they wish to cover. This verification process can typically be completed in a matter of minutes. However, these certificates offer little in the way of SSL recognition, so they are recommended for websites where visitor trust is not of high importance and information like usernames, passwords, or credit card information is not required
Wildcard SSL certificates can cover one main domain name (www.domain.com) and an unlimited amount of subdomains (mail.domain.com, login.domain.com, test.domain.com, etc.).
Our SSL certificates can be valid from anywhere to 1-2 years, depending on the certificate you choose to purchase. Per the Certificate Authority/Browser (CA/B) Forum, the governing body of the SSL industry, EV certificates can only be issued for a maximum of 2 years. DV and OV certificates from Symantec, GeoTrust, Thawte, Comodo, and RapidSSL can be issued for a maximum of 2 years.
That is the difference between the key lengths used once an SSL connection has been established in the browser. 256-bit security is indeed a bigger key however that does not necessarily mean it is more secure. Experts and research agrees that 128-bit is equally secure for the foreseeable future. The only reason 256-bit security is needed is if it’s specifically required by your industry or company policy. All our certificates have the ability to use either bit-length, which one you use is a matter of server configuration, NOT certificate support.
