Serve-Hosting is joining forces with Webafrica, with its customers’ accounts to be migrated to Webafrica’s systems.

“Webafrica’s stellar track record speaks for itself and the fact that they can migrate your services to their platform with virtually no disruptions cemented the relationship,” said Serve-Hosting.

It said all services will continue to work with almost no visible changes.

“You will be hosted in a state-of-the-art data centre in Cape Town and backed by a company we trust completely and endorse unreservedly.”

Webafrica CEO Tim Wyatt-Gunning said this is their eighth hosting acquisition.

Under the terms of the deal, Webafrica has acquired Serve-Hosting’s 7,000 customers.

While customers will be migrated onto Webafrica’s infrastructure, Wyatt-Gunning said they will continue to support the packages they currently have with Serve-Hosting.

Serve-Hosting clients migrating to Webafrica

Webafrica told clients their existing services will be imported into a new Webafrica account that will be created for them.

“For those who are already our customers, we’ll be importing your existing Serve-Hosting services into your active Webafrica account,” said Webafrica.

Once the migration is complete, customers will no longer be able to access the Serve-Hosting Member’s Area – and will need to order and manage services via the Webafrica Customer Zone.

The migration of hosting services to Webafrica will begin on 31 March, and run until 15 April.

It will be a phased migration roll-out, and the migration will only be done after hours.

“So you don’t have to worry about any downtime.”
