Webafrica formation

Back in 1997, we started as part of Webafrica, a leading internet connectivity provider. We've been rocking the web hosting world ever since!

Gridhost purchased

Webafrica purchased Gridhost, a well-known name in the hosting world, intending to bring their customers under the Webafrica brand.
