The Big Cheeses

Visionaries & Trailblazers!

The story of how Afrihost began is a story of friendship and a passionate drive to reshape the technology landscape in South Africa. Our directors are accomplished in various fields, holding several degrees and diplomas between them. Their pedigree also includes having held various executive and management positions in some of South Africa’s leading technology companies. Their passion for delivering excellent products, and even more excellent client service, came from humble beginnings. No matter how the company grows, we will never forget its roots when our CEO, Gian Visser, started the company in his bedroom and created the revolutionary idea that is Afrihost.

The Dev Team

Code, code, code!

You’ve probably used their work a million times and never thought about it. You might not know it, but it takes a team of very smart people to keep our slick automated systems running without hassles for our clients. Our Dev Team are constantly monitoring and improving our systems to make our clients happier, and make our staff more efficient (and proficient) at what they do. With loads of experience from the private and public sector, we’re lucky to have the best minds in the game. The best part is, in their spare time, they think up even more awesome ways to improve your life - isn’t that just awesome?!

Keeping the Big Machine Running!

Ever wondered what it takes to keep THOUSANDS of physical, cloud and shared servers running at peak performance 24 hours day? Not many people would know, but we’re blessed to have the cream of the Server Admin crop running our hardware and network infrastructure. We’ve hand-picked the very best candidates based on their experience (and potential) and are lucky to have a crack team of sharpshooters running the show. They work like demons to make sure that none of our hosting clients experience downtime unnecessarily. They also give us internet at the office, so we’re all very nice to them!

We make it, we ship it!

If it’s physical hardware, it has to start from somewhere. Our Hardware team builds and maintains all the server hardware that gets deployed to our data centres, ensuring that the highest quality and stringent standards are maintained on every deployment. Our hardware team also looks after all the gadgets that our clients purchase via our website and ensure that Routers, Mobile Devices and SIMS are shipped with care and in due time to the right places. But that’s not all - they also keep all our staff in keyboards, mice and monitors, so they play an important role in making sure that we have everything we need to deliver amazeballs client service.
