Afrihost does not block certain traffic however they may shape certain traffic such as p2p depending on your package.

If you have an unshaped capped package or business uncapped package, you should not experience any shaping unless the network is under strain.

Just some info i recieved when asking the same Q? Afrihost DO NOT block any ports if you are having issues it could be your routers firewall and what i found out while try to check if ports were open once i had done port forwarding is that, faults are 80% user error/ human error. Make sure all equipment is connected properly while trying to test or setup. We found after 4 days that i had plugged in the incorrect lan cable and that's why we were permanently receiving an error saying "your ISP might be blocking the port"
