As a customer of Afrihost, you are entitled to a ClientZone account which is a portal designed to help you manage your packages and carry out various transactions in the convenience of your home without having to visit their outlet. The issue, however, is that there are still some who always wonder how they can create or login into their Afrihost ClientZone account.
A South African service provider that might not necessarily need any introduction, Afrihost is an Internet Service Provider that has been in business since it was first established in 2000 by Gian Visser, Brendan Armstrong, and Peter Meintjes as well as Greg Payne who later became a part of the business.
Through the years, it has grown into one of the most vibrant and popular ISPs in South Africa. Once partly owned by MTN before it decided to sell its shares, Afrihost has a number of packages for its users that cut across hosting, internet services, and more.
Among its products are Fibre, LTE Fixed Wireless, ADSL and VDSL broadband, and also web hosting packages. Once you are able to purchase any of the products, you get a user-friendly management portal; the Afrihost ClientZone.
How You Can Create Your Afrihost Clientzone
Creating this one-stop portal, which as stated, allows you to carry out various transactions and activities including making purchases, checking balance, and renewing packages, among other things is an easy process.
As a customer, you are not directly involved in the creation of the portal, as once you make a purchase or you sign up for any product, it will automatically be created for you. Once that is done, you will receive your ClientZone access details via the Afrihost email you are given in the process of signing up.
What makes it even more interesting is the fact that once you sign up to more products in the future, they automatically get added to your ClientZone without having to create a new portal or having to add it manually.
How To Login To Your ClientZone
Before going to the process of how you can access your management portal, it is important to know that just as you can do it directly via the web, there is also an app that one can download for more convenient use. The mobile app allows one to also carry out various ClientZone functions. It is available both for iOS and Android devices. The app is also available for download in the HUAWEI AppGallery.
To log into your ClientZone account, you will, first of all, retrieve your details from the mail that was sent to you, containing the access data. With that, you can now follow these steps:
1. On your web browser, visit the clientzone.afrihost.com.
2. When the page finally opens, put in your Username and Password in the fields provided.
3. Hit on Login and that should take you to your account.
4. If you have previously linked your account to your personal Google account or Facebook, you can also decide to log into your ClientZone account using either button as seen on the login page.
Note: The process is the same as the mobile app; once it is downloaded and launched, you will simply put in the required details and login.
Problems That You Might Have Creating Or Logging to Afrihost ClientZone
When it comes to creating the Afrihost ClientZone account, the issues one might face are always limited because it is an automatic process. However, the major problem one might face when trying to log into the account would be the failure to access the account due to the usage of wrong details.
Here are the steps to take in resolving forgotten password issues via password reset:
- Kindly go to the ClientZone login page or launch the app
- Put in the email address that you use to access your ClientZone account into the Username field.
- Now, simply click on the ‘Forgot Password’ button.
- Log into your primary email (the one used) as a link will be sent there. When you click the link, it will open the password reset page.
- On the page, put in a new password and then type it a second time to confirm
- Click on ‘Reset My Password’.
- In addition to this, you will be asked to enter a One Time PIN (OTP) for the purpose of extra security.
