Imagine's SuperFast network ensures that our Website Hosting clients are hosting their sites in an environment that provides the best possible speed and stability. Our SA hosting data centre is protected by backup UPS power, diesel generators and access controlled security measures, ensuring that we keep our promise of a 99.9% uptime guarantee. Because we have our own Website Hosting infrastructure (and don't host servers on another company's infrastructure as is often the case with other Website Hosting companies) when faults do occur, they are dealt with immediately by the same engineers who maintain and support the Website Hosting network infrastructure.

Our clients have the choice of hosting their websites on our severs located locally or internationally (in the USA) and can also choose between Linux Website Hosting (available in South Africa and USA) or Windows Website Hosting (available in South Africa only). Imagine's Website Hosting servers are arranged in a Cluster format (rare in Website Hosting companies in SA). This ensures fantastic uptime (if one server fails, another merely takes up the processing load until a new server can be slotted into the Cluster). The Cluster formation of the Website Hosting servers also guarantees the fastest possible speeds for all hosted sites - if one website on a server is quiet and another website hosted a second server is busy, the first server does not simply sit underutilised - processing power is shared across the servers.

Many companies offer Website Hosting packages with eMail addresses included as part of the package. What isn't clear to the client is that their eMail traffic and the space that it takes up on the servers is taken off their Website Hosting package allowances. We consider email as critical business tool and don't turn it off because traffic limit on a website has been reached - thus, with Imagine's Website Hosting, eMail is offered as an optional extra with unlimited bandwidth offered on every eMail account.

  • Imagine hosts its SA based web servers on its own network. If faults occur, they are dealt with immediately.
  • Your Website Hosting bandwidth and space allowance is not taken up by your eMail as can happen with 'combined' packages where the eMail addresses are included.

    Suitable for
  • Local Website Hosting is best suited to companies who are targeting a consumer/client base within South Africa.
  • International Website Hosting is best suited to companies who have a client base located overseas.
99.9% Uptime Guarantee
We are so confident in our network infrastructure and support systems that we offer all of our hosting clients a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
SuperFast Network
Certain website hosting companies limit the throughput of website hosting servers to 10Mbps (sometimes less). Imagine guarantees a full 100Mbps Ethernet connection from the Website Hosting Cluster to the Imagine network ensuring the fastest possible performance.
Flexible solutions
Imagine IPS offers one of the widest and most flexible ranges of website hosting options in SA. We have options based on operating system, country of hosting, bandwidth limits etc. This means that you can tailor-make a solution that fits your specific needs. It also means that upgrading can be done 'bit-by-bit' as and when your requirements grow. If you don’t find a standard website hosting package you like, we are more than happy to tailor make one specifically for you.

Imagine owns and maintains all of its own network infrastructure equipment, none of it is leased or hosted from another company (the exception is the equipment that we have no choice but to 'lease' from Telkom). The network support systems (such as the climate control, the diesel and petrol generators, the UPS backup power units etc) are also all owned and maintained by Imagine.
