iCreate Hosting is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.
iCreate Hosting is an internet services provider based in South Africa, founded in 2006. It provides an array of hosting solutions, including domain name registration services, web hosting, web design, and SEO services.
