Summary

20 years ago we took our first customer’s business online. Yes, that makes us older than YouTube, Facebook and the iPhone, but we don’t think about ourselves as old, we’re just experienced. We move with the times and 20 years have given us the knowledge to understand exactly what our customers need today.

Our most recent innovation was our move from Webafrica to 1-grid.com. This gives us the space to grow locally and globally, to expand our offering, and to bring all of our customers’ online business needs onto one grid.

We are growing into a specialised web hosting business for SMEs. We’ve added to our service range to offer a complete solution to get businesses on the Internet and help them succeed online – hassle-free! These services include rock-solid web and email hosting, securing websites with watertight SSL certificates and boosting their business with add-ons such as Facebook marketing and website optimisation.

Combine these exciting services with a top team that understands the industry, and you get a company that’s outlived some of its biggest competitors.

We’ve invested in an exciting team with a committed focus and passion for SME growth and empowerment in Southern Africa.

Our purpose is to be part of the entrepreneurial energy our African market has, to be an online partner for SMEs and to enable growth into the digital space.

We would love for YOU to partner with us in becoming the number one hosting service provider in Southern Africa.

Come join our exciting journey as we help get more businesses online to drive (much needed) sustainable socio-economic change in Africa.

WHY choose 1-grid ?

The Covid-19 pandemic facilitated many SME’s taking their businesses online. So, rest assured we are stable and growing, fast!

Our products and services are more than this to our customers. I guess we’re “dream- catchers” in a way…. That’s because we make many entrepreneurial dreams come true! Every part of your workday contributes to (most likely) the biggest impactful change for businesses. Your daily tasks will have a lasting and meaningful effect in more ways you realise.

Our people are our biggest asset and are important to our success. We admittedly make a fuss of them :)
