Where to buy web hosting

November 02, 2020 0

Are you thinking of setting up a website in Nigeria?


If so, you’re going to need a fast and reliable web host – the foundation that powers your site. There are two main options for hosting your Nigerian website:

  1. Choose a small, local hosting service based in Nigeria
  2. Choose a larger, recognized international host.


As you’ll see throughout this post, we recommend choosing option 2: an established international host. Although there are many local Nigerian hosts, their performance is simply too slow. In fact, we discovered only one local hosting service that produced acceptable performance.


Instead, we recommend the superior speeds and ultra-reliability of international hosts like Bluehost. Even in Africa, its performance is outstanding.

Before we get into the details, we need to understand what makes the best web host.


A web host determines the speed, reliability, and stability of your website, so it’s important to make the right choice. So, what exactly are we looking for?


1. Speed


We all know the importance of website speed. And speed all begins with a fast web host. A web host should respond within 200ms (according to Google), so look for a host that responds quickly to your location and around the world.


2. Uptime


‘Uptime’ is a measure of reliability. In other words, it’s the percentage of time your website is online. Even an uptime of 98% can mean your site is down for six days of the year(!) Look for an uptime of 99.8% or higher.


3. Security


There’s nothing worse than getting hacked. What would you do if you lost all your content and hard work? That’s why web host security is so important. A good host should have automatic updates and malware scanning. Some even come with a free SSL (security) certificate.


4. Backups


As extra security and practical feature, many hosts now come with regular automatic backups.


5. Customer service


Ideally, your web host should have 24/7/365 customer service. Most hosts now have customer service options including phone, ticket systems, and online chat. Note that some hosts charge extra for a premium support service.


6. Storage and bandwidth


‘Storage’ refers to how much content, images, and data you can store on the host’s servers. And ‘bandwidth’ is how much data can flow through from the server. This has an impact on speed and visitor numbers. Naturally, we want the highest storage and bandwidth within reason.


7. Price


Don’t always settle for the cheapest WebHost. It can end up causing you issues with speed and reliability. It may even hold you back if your website starts to grow. At the same time, you don’t need to spend a fortune! Look for affordable hosting with all the features you need.

What is Web Hosting?

What is Web Hosting?

A web host or web hosting service provider is a company that provides the technologies and services necessary for the website or web page to be viewed on the Internet.

Web sites and their components (stylesheets, Javascript documents, images, etc.) are stored on computers called "servers". These servers are hosted in data centers connected to the Internet.

What is the Difference Between Web Hosting and the Registrar of the Domain Name?

Web hosting and domain name are two concepts that are often confusing. The domain name is the address of your website. To reserve a domain name, you have to go through a registrar.

Once the domain name is reserved, it is necessary to subscribe to a web hosting service in order to store the files of the site.

However, some companies offer both services, domain name registration as well as website hosting.
