VANILLA - internet services, simple.
Vanilla provides simple, affordable internet services for discerning Internet users in South Africa. We've been doing this since 1996 - you can trust us to get it right.
Have a look at our social networks for the latest updates on whats going on:
We connect you through the three primary networks in South Africa. These are the fastest and most reliable networks in the country - Internet Solutions, MTN Business - used by many major companies and SAIX, the Telkom network.
Vanilla also orders and bills for adsl physical lines, hence no need to struggle with Telkom, just do everything through us!
Vanilla gives you a choice of easy to use services - you pick what you want and only pay for what you use (or commit to using e.g. fixed accounts, domains, etc). No complex bundles, long-term lock-in, no red tape, we guarantee 99% uptime and the security of our systems.
Vanilla keeps everything as simple as possible
A mailing list is a means to send information to a large number of recepients. Our service features vast customisation capabilities with moderation from both the owner and the moderator. We use Mailman for ultimate reliability and functionality of our mailing list service.
We provide a tailored solution for your needs. Most of our customers use their own domain names for their lists.
For example, Vanilla supports the Internet Society which controls their own lists for members at isoc.org.za. Our mailing lists can be used for:
- various teams
- working groups or
Other customers such as private schools have replaced their paper-based newsletter system with email. They use a subdomain eg. lists.vanilla.co.za. Another small business franchisee uses our service to communicate with and between branches.
Send one email to an address and allow the mailing list server do the rest.
At what cost?
We can provide you with a mailing list service for R69 (incl) per month plus R285 setup. The setup includes 20 minutes telephonic instruction how to use the software. You can use this as much as you like up to 500MB (±50000 thousand of text emails) but we charge an additional R49 per additional 500MB. It uses the most widely used software called Mailman which allows us to guarantee our service.
