For some reasons best known to internet users and website owners or intending owners, one might decide to use Nigerian Web-Hosting Companies In hosting their website.
If you’ve been reading a lot about SEO and related subjects, it’s often advised that you host your website close to your target audience.
What that means is, if you aim to target the Nigerian market, it’s probably a good idea to use a Nigerian host. If deciding to use a Nigerian host, you should aim for reliability.
Finding a reliable Nigerian host can be pretty tasking. I mean, the search can be really tough. I wish I could personally publish a post detailing the List Of Best Nigerian Web hosting companies. But, I personally haven’t tried too many and i really cannot recommend what I haven’t tried. Perhaps, you should check out this post before getting started with choosing a host.
Maybe in the future, if I eventually decide to try more local hosts, I’d put up one or two reviews. Until then, I’m pretty comfortable with the host I’m currently using.
If you are curious to know which Nigerian web hosting company accepts payment via Naira, this post will come in handy.
If you happen to be among those in need of the often talked about best-hosting companies situated in Nigeria, then listed on this page are the top 3 I’d recommend you check out.
Normally, if you visit search engines related to topics of this nature, you definitely going to find a lot of hosting websites claiming to be the best and most reliable service but the truth is, not all are good. You might probably try them out and get disappointed.
Please do not get me wrong. There are loads of companies providing reliable and trusted services but most of them do not live up to what they promise. Hence, it is strongly advisable that you take out time when choosing your hosting company.
Best 3 Web-Hosting Companies In Nigeria
1. SYSKAY Hosting company
Syskay systems are one reliable hosting company I have used in the past and their service is reliable and cheap. The Nigerian Web hosting company has been offering web hosting in Nigeria since 2006 and what they offer is relatively cheap.
For as low as N2500 you can get 500MB to 2GB of monthly bandwidth and they accept payment via GTBank and Zenith. They also just added a medium of paying via ATM card online. However, that is something I haven’t tried.
2. SMARTWEB Online Solutions
SmartWeb online solutions is a fast-growing web-hosting company gaining a reputation by the day it was launched in 2004. Although I personally have not tried using this web hosting company, I know a couple of Nigerian blogs and websites hosting with Smartweb.
They also offer relatively cheap hosting and payment can be made in Naira.
Web4Africa offers Linux and windows hosting plus lots of useful features. You can also register a .ng domain under Web4Africa which generally isn’t common among other hosting companies.
Although hosting on web4africa isn’t as cheap as other listed companies, it is said that they offer a reliable service and have got support via emails.
Summary: I personally no longer host with Nigerian Hosting companies for the best reasons known to me which are typically based on my experience with them. I do not think they provide quick customer care service for some internal technical issues like International hosting companies do.
Besides, I am not very certain as to whether or not, they provide a free website transfer service. If you already have an existing website with the internet to move, a free website transfer service is something you should inquire about before getting into a contract.
In my subsequent posts, I will be writing about more hosting companies alongside companies in Nigeria where you can purchase domain names.
