  2. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for
    this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with
    hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be aweesome if you could point me in the
    direction of a good platform.

  3. Nice work. I like your stile. Last time i checked vodacom’s last host octet was ***.***.***.12 as in like but on your post you have got 13. How can i keep in track with the host if they are updated? And please can you provide IP Host Server for 8ta. Nice Job mate.

    • Some providers have different host IP Addresses although they work the same. The best way to stay in touch is contacting your provider just in case you see things not working. And for 8ta, I will definitely do that. Thanks for the comment.

          • For example: a hostname for vodacome(vodafone) if that is safe to say will be:! I want something of that nature. Run whois of this hostname and check out the information and proxy host. If you can provide me with necessary tool or method to find something like this on perhaps 8ta, mtn or cellc, that would have done it! And if you check, that hostname will give you vodacom information but if you ping their domain: or etc it wont give back the server address for the FQDN :, it will give you server ip for!

            • Have you tried calling either of the ISP’s? I guess calling them will help you find the right information. Let me know if you have tried and failed so that I can find a way for you. Its bad that am located in the US not in SA but will try my best to see if I can help you out.
