Who we are

Zulucom is based in Empangeni, KZN, and having been in operation for over 19 years is an established part of the Zululand IT scene. We offer website and e-mail hosting, home and business ADSL internet access and remote support. We operate 3 dedicated hosting servers with Hetzner, one in Cape Town, the others in Johannesburg, while on the ISP side, we represent Axxess. This gives us a great deal of flexibility and we are able to offer clients a wide range of options, both in terms of hosting and internet access.

While the bulk of our users are naturally Zululand based, we have clients country-wide, from Cape Town to Hluhluwe, from Durban to Johannesburg - geographic location doesn't prevent us from serving you no matter where you are.

As of March 2016, Zulucom is owned and operated by Steve & Kathy Oberholzer, assisted by Justin Whittaker who operates his web design business, Bright Spark, from our offices.


Our history

Chris & Evan King launched Zulucom late 1996 primarily as a website design and hosting service. Seeing the need for e-mail and networking services Zulucom grew into IT support early in 1998 and by 2000 had expanded into the ISP market, offering both leased-line and dial-up ISP services. The introduction of ADSL saw the market change and Zulucom moved out of the leased line market to became a reseller of ISP services for IS and MTN Business. Website design was outsourced mid 2004 and technical support outsourced mid 2007, leaving Chris & Shelley to operate a leaner operation focussing on ISP and hosting services. In March 2016 Chris & Shelley passed on the reigns to Steve & Kathy Oberholzer.
