How to cancel your services

Fibre cancellation. 

This article does not apply to fibre cancellation. Please read our Help Centre article How to cancel your fibre account, for further information.


Any cancellations done before the 15th of the month will take effect at the end of that month.

Cancellations done after the 15th of the month will then only be effective from the end of the following month.

Services cannot be cancelled if there are any outstanding balances on the account. The account must be settled first.


You do not need to cancel your package if you wish to only change the package you are on. You can easily upgrade or downgrade your current package in ClientZone.

We do not take email as confirmation for cancellation, all cancellations are submitted through ClientZone.

  1. Log into ClientZone.
  2. Click on the category (Connectivity/ Mobile/ VoIP/ Hosting) under which the product you want to cancel falls.
  3. Select the package you want to cancel from the list on the right-hand side.
  4. Click on the ‘Edit Package’ button.
  5. Under the ‘Cancel this Service’ section, complete the form if required.
  6. Click on ‘Cancel this Service’ to confirm your cancellation.
  7. The pending cancellation confirmation will be displayed on the screen.

Cancelling Hosting Services

If you are cancelling a hosting service, please make sure that you have all the backups that you need. Once the cancellation goes through all your content and emails will be deleted. DNS for all the domains will also be removed.

Cancelling a DSL Line

If you are cancelling a DSL line, please note that your DSL line service will be transferred back to Telkom. Telkom will bill you for the DSL line rental - if you do not want the line anymore, you will have to cancel the DSL line with Telkom directly.

You will be disconnected from your DSL connectivity account on the last day of the month at 23:59:59.

Cancelling Pure VoIP Services

Please note when cancelling your VoIP services, you will lose your 087 VoIP number. The VoIP number will be recycled to be used again for another Pure VoIP signup. This is also true for any ported landline numbers.

If you would like to keep your VoIP number and move it to another provider, don’t cancel your VoIP package, contact your new VoIP provider and ask them about moving your Pure VoIP number over.

Package Changes. 

You will not be able to make any package changes during the billing run period. Afrihost monthly billing runs from the 22nd to the 5th. Any changes done during the billing run will only take effect at the end of the following month.
