Afrihost slashes hosting bandwidth prices

Afrihost announced that it is dropping its hosting costs to make “cloud and dedicated hosting products more attractive to home and business clients”.

Afrihost will be dropping their bandwidth costs for cloud servers to 97c per GB. “This means that clients who exceed their package traffic threshold will be charged less than R1 per GB for additional traffic, down from R3.50,” Afrihost said.

Excess traffic costs for physical dedicated servers will also drop from R7 per GB to R2.97 per GB, and web traffic on Rack Hosting will drop from R12 per GB to R5 per GB.

“This represents a significant saving for many clients across the board. Afrihost will further be increasing web traffic thresholds across several of their products,” the ISP said.

New web traffic pricing will take effect immediately for new clients signing up and for existing clients from 1 December 2013.
