  • 16 Aug 0



Our SMS Longcode/KEYWORD Hosting Service (also known as SIM Hosting) is a replica of Shortcodes function that offers a 2-way communication tool based on keywords sent in through text messages. Keyword Hosting is an easy way to receive SMS messages from your users/clients to your email, Server or Database, through a connection to our SMS server. (Very much similar to our SMS2WEB Service but much more advanced.

You can have your own SIM card or a shared one hosted to one of our SIM Server, so as to be able to receive SMS. All SMS messages sent to the mobile phone number of the SIM card will be forwarded to your account with us, to your mobile phone or to a URL of your Data Base Server. And you also get a reply message.

It’s a shared/Dedicated SMS Longcode and keyword (SIM) Hosting Service that provides a simple yet effective way to returning a customized response message to mobile phone that texts in, while forwarding the in-bound message. Unlike Shortcodes, you or your Customers don’t have to pay any premium rate. Normal SMS rates apply. The scalability and low cost of this service assures that many businesses like yours can fully harness the power of auto reply SMS. You can request for a Dedicated Longcode number or make use of our Shared Longcode numbers. You get to choose the keywords you want to use.



When an sms message is sent to a longcode number, e.g 234807777777 our SMS gateway will forward the received SMS messages to your opted route using protocols / interface that best suits your needs; for example HTTP, SMS to email, or it will be saved on your account with us, to your email, displayed on your site or forwarded to a URL of your DataBase Server. etc. and then a return message is sent, Just like most two way messages does.

This is great for programmers and Developers wishing to design web or native based application like 2factor sms authentication, auto sms replies, etc.  to see Longcode in use during our “WorldCup SMS Predict and Win Promo” and “Health Applications of longcode by United Nations” to learn more about using sms longcodes.
