Why talk about web hosting services in Nigeria when there are already top web hosting companies such as Bluehost and Hostgator?
One reason that may seem as an advantage is that for those starting up blogging with low budget, web hosting services in Nigeria have plans that meet their demands. You can get a web hosting package for as low as 3,000 naira/year, which is way cheaper than that of foreign web hosting companies.
The fact that most of these web hosting services in Nigeria accept bank payment is another advantage. If you do not have a debit card, you can use naira payment via bank.
A third reason is that some web hosting services in Nigeria offer .ng domains, and most times for free.
However, when considering web hosting services in Nigeria, the amount of web storage and bandwidth they are willing to offer is a must check. The term Bandwidth, what does it mean?
