If you decide to cancel your website service with Gridhost and choose to keep your domain, you will be liable for the yearly domain renewal fee.
- Free Web Hosting Hosting your website is as important as the look and feel of it. We have been hosting people’s websites since 1997 and we know how vital it is to have your website up and running all the time. Your website will be hosted at our high-security data centre, with backup generators, high uptime and complete peace of mind.
- Free Annual Redesign The expression “that’s so ‘90s” is something you don’t want said about your website. Every year you have the option of a complete redesign of your website – for free. Stay ahead of the latest trends.
Why We Are Different
Most web design companies will simply build a website for you and expect you to do the rest. At gridhost we also help your website to grow; we generate leads and boost sales through your new online home.
We get to know you and your business
Every website, social media page and online marketing programme we craft is born from a comprehensive interview we do with you to establish your specific needs. Our first step is to build a relationship with you and to find out more about your brand.
We build your online presence
Our designers, copywriters and marketers are masters in their respective fields, and will have your project polished and optimised for Google, Facebook and other platforms in no time. We will ensure that your business turns heads online.
We generate leads for your business
We know how tough it can be out there as a business, and we want to help. Our top two packages are designed to not only ensure that you have a great online presence, but to help you reap further rewards, such as lead generation and boosted sales.
We advise you on how to grow
Each month you will receive detailed reports, so you can understand how your business is performing online. One of our online marketing experts will then talk you through it and brainstorm and suggest ways on how we can improve your online presence.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a contract?
Our no-strings-attached policy offers pay-as-you-go monthly packages that can be cancelled at any time. Please note that, if you do decide to cancel, the service will be terminated at the end of your current billing period.
Can I update my own website?
Yes, we encourage you to do so. Remember, the more you update your website, the better the chance it has to rank on Google. We will supply you with all the login details needed to access your easy-to-use content management system.
What if I already have a website?
No problem – we will design a new website, either a redesign or something fresh depending on your requirements, while keeping your existing site on the web. Only once you have approved your new design, will we make it live.
How long will it take to view the first draft of my new website?
This depends on a few factors and the package you select, but we aim to have all websites designed and ready to go live within three weeks. Being ready for your interview once you have signed up will boost the process. We will ask a few questions about your business, and we will require any images, logos and other business-related collateral to help us better understand your business.
What is lead generation?
Our top two packages come with free lead generation. Every month we will actively look at cost-effective marketing opportunities to generate leads for you to turn into sales. We also offer two Lead Generation Packages which you can add to your order when checking out.
How will gridhost help my business with regards to online marketing?
Every month we will send you a detailed report on how your business is performing online: how many people are visiting your website, where they are coming from and how many leads you’ve received. Our top two packages also offers you access to your own dedicated account manager who will talk you through your report and advise you on how to grow even more.
Can I upgrade to a bigger package?
Of course. If you start out on one of our lower tier packages, you can choose to upgrade at any time.
Can I run e-commerce on my website?
Not yet. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t sell products on your website through our product catalogue add-on, and by making use of an effective online contact form.
Can I buy my website or pay a once-off fee?
You have the option to pay for a year in advance while still enjoying the monthly benefits from gridhost. You can also buy your website, and the price will depend on the amount of effort we have put in to make your website live. However, 99% of our customers do not buy out their website, as they will then lose out on all the added benefits (free updates, website security, access to a dedicated account manager, etc.).
Do you design logos?
We do not design logos. We prefer to focus on what we know best: giving you a secure and up-to-date website and advise you on how to grow your business online. There are plenty of free logo creators out there – simply search “free logo builder” and have fun!
What other options are available to grow my business?
All our packages are designed to not only get you a website, but to grow your business online. If you want to give your business an added boost, then you can choose from one of our Lead Generation products or our Paid Advertising (Google Adwords) products.
Why is my website not ranking on Google?
We get this question often. Ranking well on Google and other search engines doesn’t happen overnight, especially if you have a new website! Our top package includes monthly SEO updates aimed at helping you to improve your rankings and presence on all search engines. If you are looking for instant results, then also consider our Google Paid Advertising product.
Why am I on the gridhost website and not on Webafrica?
Do not click away, there’s a simple answer!
We have decided to split into two separate businesses:
Webafrica (Getting people online) and gridhost (Getting people noticed online) to be more focused in giving you the attention you deserve.
So from now on, your hosting services will be managed by the same people from the same office providing the same services at the same price, all on the same top-notch technology, just with a new name, gridhost.
If you want more details, please read this “not so short” message from our CEO regarding the split.
