Guys, i am really tired of smartwebng.com and i want to change host now. can I use syskay.com? their (syskay and smartwebng) website looks pretty similar, is that not a glimpse of an impending inefficiency? I can't really patronize the big guys (hostgator) now.

If you are going for SYSKAY or Hostgator, I give you 99% assurance that you won't regret.

I have being using Syskay since 2008 and I have no cause to regret. I love him for his prompt technical support and excellent services.

Hostgator is very good as well. I have been using hostgator and their very ok.

Goodluck!

The question I want to ask you is that, will smartwebng let you transfer your domain. If you want to transfer your domain from them, just ensure you have many month left for the domain to expire incase they don't want to transfer for you, you will have enough time to battle them and claim your domain using appropriate authorities.

The reason why I am saying this is that, there was a client who wanted to transfer his domain from one reseller hosting company (now defunct) and they refused until the domain expired and they claimed it.

When i notice the sharp practice, I told my clients that since your domain is till new, no pagerank, no much traffic and the his site did not generate any sale for him during the period, I said I will register another domain similar to that and host it else way.

I told him he has to wait for the former domain to expire before we will register it and redirect to the new domain name. I knew that the hosting company will not continue to renew the domain because the domain did not have much traffic or value to gain from and my calculation work and we regained the domain name after about 1&half year.

If the domain name is your company's name, and if you have register your business name, you have to be very careful because if they claim it, it will affect you.

Before you move, just ensure you backup all your files before you contact them for domain transfer

I wish you goodluck

Sincerely having used both syskay and host gator, I still rate syskay the best. Their excellent support system makes them simply superb. Also they are quick to activate your package once you pay unlike some others that take hours or even days before they acknowledge your payment. I recommend them completely.

Are you saying Syskay is better than Hostgator? I've never used Skyskay which is an Ibadan based hosting company but if you want a host outside Nigeria then i'll suggest Hostgator. They have one of the best reviews on the internet.

syskay is da bomb,they may be in Ibadan but they are the best.
Re: Help! Before I Enter Another Waterloo, Is Syskay.com A Good Host? by yemi313: 2:34pm On Jan 20, 2011
my company site is: www.aasog.com
they've been hosting that site for sometimes now.
Re: Help! Before I Enter Another Waterloo, Is Syskay.com A Good Host? by hubreality(m): 2:46pm On Jan 20, 2011
@Poster, I will suggest HostGator as the do accept Nigerian Banks Visa/Master cards though requires further verifications with them after payment is made with your card to prove true ownership of card or you could use a proven indigenous web host: Web4Africa

Goodluck!

I recommend this site www.aspnetuk.com
The charge is only N3000 per year for an unlimited space.
Re: Help! Before I Enter Another Waterloo, Is Syskay.com A Good Host? by mrperfect(m): 4:48pm On Jan 20, 2011

@Poster,

I'm only suggesting these guys because you've been burned before. Alireta for me has proven to be remarkably reliable and we have probably over 15 sites hosted with them for years now and no issues - www.alireta.com wink

@ utimatedes

utimatedes:

If the domain name is your company's name, and if you have register your business name, you have to be very careful because if they claim it, it will affect you.

Thanks alot, i was about going for the registration of the name. Those guys will not kill me. syskay.com requested for an epp code which could only be gotten from my current host (smartwebng), but all effort to contact sthem has been futile.


I really appreciate everyone that have replied this thread. Thanks alot.

Re: Help! Before I Enter Another Waterloo, Is Syskay.com A Good Host? by Nobody: 11:44pm On Jan 20, 2011
Guys please check out this link ( http://www.dailychanges.com/smartwebng.com/ ) its a record of the Recent Activity for the Name Server smartwebng.com. can you explain the report? none of my sites are listed there, does it mean my site are not actually hosted on their server or what?

Re: Help! Before I Enter Another Waterloo, Is Syskay.com A Good Host? by vandops(m): 12:24am On Jan 21, 2011
i recommend syskay.I have been using them since 2009 and no qualms, though hostgator is also good, its ur choice though
Re: Help! Before I Enter Another Waterloo, Is Syskay.com A Good Host? by kestebrown(m): 1:14am On Jan 21, 2011
I've noticed that Hostgator is very reliable; However, I get my hosting for free because I'm a member of a training institute where I was able to learn every thing I know today as regards online marketing: web business explained(26 video course) Form creation of website (43 video course), a 21 video course on different ways to generate traffic, how to use face book to your own advantage (Understanding Facebook) and 21 days to success. the truth is that the benefits are just enormous.
Meanwhile the eBook: CREATE YOUR FIRST WEBSITE is available for free at my website; why don't you use this opportunity to grab yours so you can start building your own web site

So i'm not the only one suffering under this smartweb wahala? @poster, please go for syskay. Their services are the best when it comes to Nigerian web hosting. They were the very first webhost to offer me services before the devil tempted me (just like Eve) to give smartweb a try because of their (smartweb) useless unlimited email offers, a decision which i currently regret today. Can u imagine that i purchased a domain name www.christacademyonline.com and after paying, the website comes on and off at random. sometimes it would be offline for days or even weeks. I was adviced to purchase a "domain only" hosting package from another host and point my nameservers to the host by a nairalander but i just did not want to have anything to do with smart ar$eweb so i purchased another domain name entirely "christacademyinternational.com" with syskay. My main site is being hosted by them and i am waiting for it to expire so i can move totally to syskay. To cut the long story short, see thread wey i start because of smartweb:"http://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-579852.0.html"
