Website & Email Hosting

Hosting is the cornerstone of Zulucom's business so we take it very seriously. We currently operate 4 dedicated servers within the top South African hosting company server farm, one in Cape Town and the others in Johannesburg, where we host over 600 domains.

Our servers have an excellent uptime record which includes automated backup and daily antivirus scans, so you can rest assured that your website and email are safe. We also have a real-time monitor to alert us to any security issues, so we can correct problems very quickly.

Our hosting is fully scaleable, from our Micro Pro hosting package for start-ups needing up to 5 mailboxes, to our Corporate package for heavy hitters requiring up to 250 mailboxes!

What differentiates us from other hosts? We are local so when you have an issue rest assured that you can email or phone us and get a response in short order - usually the same day.

Data Centre Features

Power
An 11kV power feed from the power utility energises a fault-tolerant, medium-voltage ring that energises two, physically separated, low-voltage, 2MVA energy centres. These A- and B feeds power infrastructure services such as IT load, air conditioning, security systems and emergency lighting. They, along with the energy centres are fully redundant, with their own UPS and generator backup allowing full electrical failover between the A and B feeds. We have on-site fuel storage sufficient to run our generators for seven days continuously. Our UPS’s provide always-on power, with battery standby time of 30 minutes.

Security
We use technology-driven measures to provide perimeter, building and access-control security. The perimeter fence is backed by high voltage barriers, the latest video surveillance technology and response systems. All outdoor and indoor access zones are monitored by video surveillance. Biometric access control systems and progressive access policies allow unattended access to authorised visitors. Security personnel are on site 24/7 to ensure the safety of our visitors.

Fire Protection
Our fire prevention strategy is achieved through a multi-zoned VESDA fire detection system that is deployed within the data centre, in the energy centres and the diesel tanks. Our fire prevention strategy is backed by stringent fire mitigation procedures and best practice.
