Having problems accessing Afrihost cpanel from overseas or other admin features such as FTP access. This is due to security restrictions that are enabled by default.
By default Afrihost only allows South African IP addresses to acces there admin section. To allow access from another country simply login to their hosting control panel (cpanel) and tick the box next to the country you want to allow access.
This is a nice security feature and would suggest you only allow access from the countries required.
If you would rather not hassle about issues such as these we can manage your hosting on your behalf.
