Web Hosting companies are companies that host the websites and blogs of people in their data centers for such website or blog to be live on the internet. Web Hosting companies ensure that the contents, videos, images and overall files of any website and blog are saved and kept in its online server.
There are many web hosting companies in Nigeria that offers domain registration and hosting services for people. Nigeria has more than 200 web hosting companies, this will create a headache or a challenge for any prospective or aspiring website owner, webmaster or blogger to choose a better web hosting company for his website.
By reading this article, you will be able to understand and comprehend the 5 key things which you must consider before you choose a website hosting company in Nigeria to host your website.
Reliability
A good web hosting company should be reliable and trusted to offer the best hosting services for your website. You would blame yourself if your site goes down for a long period of time because you choose the wrong website hosting company.
Before choosing any Nigerian based web hosting company or any foreign web hosting company which is open for Nigeria, you are expected to make a background check on the website and see to it that they are reliable and bankable to host your website
Customer Support
Do not host your website with any web hosting company that does not have a customer support or customer service department. A good web hosting company should have a customer service team which can be reached by live chat, mail or telephone call so that you can always contact them.
UpTime and DownTime
A good web hosting company must have a powerful server and a strong network connection. If your website is always down, it is possible that your traffic will run down and that means that you are losing prospective customers.
A good website hosting company should be able to give your website an uptime of 99%.
Rich Cpanel
Before choosing any website hosting company in Nigeria. You should check if that web hosting company has rich features in its control panel or Cpanel. A rich Cpanel should have tools like Softaculous, Simple Script, Cron etc.
These tools mentioned are basic requirements which you would still need if your website grows. However, do not be astonished or shocked if that web hosting company does not offer or provide these tools which are supposed to be in the Cpanel.
Available BackUp Plan
Also, a good website hosting company should be able to have a backup plan for you to back up and save your blog and website contents.
If the backup service has a price, make sure that the backup plan is affordable for you.
If your website or blog loses its content and data, you will have to start again afresh and this will be very bad for you.
Hope this post has been able to help you on how you can choose and select the best web hosting company in Nigeria. If you haven't selected a good web hosting company, you can try out web hosting companies like Bluehost, HostGator, iPage, NameCheap.
As for Nigerian based website hosting companies, you can try out Garanntor Hosting Limited, WhoGoHost Limited and DomainKing.ng.
