Hosting

Hosting with Aurora Digital

Our web packages includes your monthly web and email hosting.

You will not be able to sign up for one of our monthly packages if you host at another provider. In the event that you do host with another provider full payment will have to be made before your website can be made available to you. Aurora Digital takes no responsibility for any loss of data when hosting with another provider.

Rest assured that we offer world-class hosting services and we have a 99.9% up-time.


Our monthly packages include 6GB of storage. Providing you with enough storage for your custom emails and website.


Web hosting

1GB storage

Email hosting

5GB storage

We do offer larger hosting packages if you require more storage. However for the day-to-day user the standard 6GB package should be more than enough.

Back-ups

Making sure your data is safe

It's important to us that your data (emails, website data and more) is safely and securely backed up.

That is why we will be enforcing the use of the IMAP protocol to store and retrieve your emails.

IMAP stands for Internet Message Access Protocol. In short what it means is we will securely store your emails on our servers.

Which means if that old laptop finally gives in or in the unfortunate event that your phone or laptop gets stolen you can be rest assured that your emails are safe.

Once you get your new laptop or cellphone we can instantly restore all your emails.

Aurora Digital cannot be held accountable for the loss of any email data if the IMAP protocol is not used.

Packages

Maintaining your website

Now that you have a world class website you will have to maintain and update your web content to stay fresh and relevant. Included in your package will we provide a set amount of hours, each month, to make any updates required.

Please note that web maintenance include updating wording, images etc. Maintenance does not include building any additional functionality. If you do require additional features to be added this will be invoiced separately.

Additional maintenance hours can be purchased once your monthly maintenance time has been depleted.

Please note that the monthly maintenance hours can only be carried over for a total of two months. For example if you have 2 hours maintenance available and you did not request any updates you'll have 4 hours available next month.

Requesting updates

To improve our level of service and to meet deadlines it's crucial that you inform us well in advance of any updates required. Our teams are scheduled on a per project basis and therefore we cannot guarantee same-day updates.

Any and all updates can be requested, in writing, to hello@auroradigital.co.za

Our team will access your request and revert back with the soonest date of estimated completion. We will try, to the best of our abilities, to get your request done the same day but this is not a guarantee and Aurora Digital cannot be held liable missing a same day update.

No updates will be actioned if it's not in email writing. No requests via WhatsApp will be allowed.
