Who we are
Zulucom is based in Empangeni, KZN, and having been in operation for over 15 years is an established part of the Zululand IT scene. We offer website and e-mail hosting, ADSL internet access and remote support. We operate 2 dedicated hosting servers with Hetzner, one in Cape Town, the other in Johannesburg, while on the ISP side, we represent Internet Solutions. 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.
Zulucom is owned and operated by Chris & Shelley King, assisted by Justin Whittaker who operates his web design business, Web Energy, from our offices.
Chris and 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 and Shelley to operate a leaner operation focussing on ISP and hosting services.
Zulucom’s service portfolio consists of
- Hosting; This includes website and e-mail services.
- ISP; Internet access, including dial-up and ADSL services.
