Good day Ruth,

Afrihost offers a website builder with our Pro shared hosting packages, however, this is not a platform that can be used for an e-commerce (online shop) website.
We recommend that you have this done for you by a web developer as an online store require your clients to log in and therefor security is very important.

Afrihost will be able to provide you with the hosting platform for your website, domain name and emails.

Please have a look at our available hosting packages -
If you are unsure which one is right for you, your developer will be able to advise you which package will be best based on the size of the website etc.

If you require further assistance,  

please send a message to our WhatsApp helpline:   

WhatsApp Help is available from 07h00 - 20h00 Monday - Friday  

or visit our Help Centre:   

 or see our FAQ page:      

Thank you

Hi Ruth,

Afrihost is a hosting company which means that you can register a domain name (website name) and host your website with them.

I can assist you with building a website for your business.

From what you mentioned above I would need more information, however, you would either need a site that your clients can book an appointment online or a website where a client can purchase a product on your site.

If you would like to discuss this in more detail you can send me a mail HERE

I think you can hire some web developers and they will create professional website for you! Why not? In my opinion it will be the best decision. If you want some unique and attractive design like these ecommerce examples, you should hire professional designers. By the way website design also important for SEO, so it is good investment.

If you want to create a site by yourdelf, I recommend to use one of 10 best eCommerce website builders and platforms of 2019. They are easy-to-use and don't require special coding skills. Also they offer a great variety of beautifully designed templates. I tried some of them and was pleased with the results. Hopefully, this info will be useful for you. Good luck!

In my opinion, it depends on the number of features you would like to implement on your website. When we've made a choice to develop our website, we didn't do it on our own. We were interested in the cost that is why we contacted the professional e-commerce development company and we were offered a lot of variants of features and prices, as well.

Ohh man, i am really happy for the people that smart enough, and get decided that they need to develop their business, and start to go online. I guess people have actually decided to do it, becasue of the situation we got this year, with all this pandemic and all this sh*t. That is really nice. I am also trying to convince my father to do the same, however i cannot convince him by any means, just don't understand how should i do this. I guess, since you start your online business, the services of, will be vital for you. They are a defamation legal firm, and they might help you remove the fake reports and reviews.
