Although they come with quite advanced features, Telasera’s hosting packages can be pretty expensive. The hosting firm allows users to choose their billing cycles starting from a minimum commitment of at least one month. Prices are listed in South African rands.
This hosting provider boasts of high uptime data center facilities. Though I could not any information on its website about its uptime or money-back guarantee, in an email response to my query, the vendor informed me that it offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee from both its Cape Town and Johannesburg data centers and that its services are also protected by a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Potential clients can contact the Telasera support desk in several ways: telephone, email, live chat, ticketing system, or you can also leave them a message through a contact form.
I sent them an email and received back a response in around 12 hours.
Unfortunately, the vendor has availed a very scanty knowledgebase.
