[LATEST] Best Web Hosting Companies in Nigeria 2018
If you are looking for web hosting services in Nigeria, this is a good place to start your search. The major advantage of Nigeria based web hosting companies is that you can pay in Naira via bank deposit or with your debit/ATM card. Nigeria based web hosting sites are also more economical and some of them offer .ng domains. If you do not have a debit card to buy web hosting with best web hosting sites like GoDaddy, Nigeria based hosting companies offer you convenient Naira payment.

Here are some of the best web hosting companies based in Nigeria.

Although web hosting companies in Nigeria have improved a lot in their quality of service and reliability, they are not there yet as customer service is still an issue.

Although Nigeria based hosting companies offer more economical hosting services, they will end up costing more in the long run or as the traffic of your website increases.

In addition, most web hosting companies in Nigeria are just resellers for international hosting providers like GoDaddy or HostGator, which means they are more or less middle-men, which could contribute to the cost of the hosting as they will have to take their fee to cover cost.

Before we go any further let me share web hosting companies I actually use. This site is hosted on Tiger Technologies and I have other properties spread across other services. I list them below

Best Web Hosting Companies

Hosting Company Price/Month Storage Bandwidth Details
Tiger Technologies $9.95 to $19.95 20GB to 50GB Unmetered Learn More
HostGator $2.43 to $5.23 Unmetered Unmetered Learn More
GoDaddy $3.99 to $16.99 100GB or Unmetered Unmetered Learn More
JustHost $2.65 to $14.99 50GB to Unmetered Unmetered Learn More

These are the web hosting companies I currently use. I have heard some good things about BlueHost and I plan to host my next set of properties with the host.

Note that the price for the first year or first month is sometimes discounted, so it is a good idea to find out the regular price before you signup.

Now, back to our discussion about Nigerian based hosts. For me the major advantage of hosting with Nigeria based hosting companies is that you can pay via bank deposit in Naira, which is kind of a big deal in a cash dominated economy like Nigeria.

These hosting companies also register .ng domain name.

If you are planning to host a very large website, a Nigeria based hosting site may struggle to deliver the required quality of service, so you are better off with top international hosting services in the US, UK, or Germany.

For example, the top 10 Nigerian websites owned and managed by Nigerians are all hosted outside Nigeria. Sites like Jumia, Konga, and Nairaland are all hosted by some of the best hosting companies in the world. So, if you are planning to compete with any of these sites, you are better off hosting with international services.

However, if your target is a website for a few thousand visits per day, a Nigeria based web hosting site will be able to handle it. So, your small business sites, personal sites, blogs, etc can be handled by web hosting companies in Nigeria.

Web hosting Sites in Nigeria: Brief Overview

Here is a brief overview of some of the best web hosting sites in Nigeria. This should not be seen as a recommendation, do a more thorough research before subscribing to any of the hosting sites.

Note that I have never used any of these services for web hosting. I however use Registeram as my domain name registrar for all my .com.ng domain name registration and I am satisfied with their service. So, I assume their hosting should also be okay.
