Top 3 Webhosting Companies In Nigeria: Review, Specs And Price by love4real20: 12:10pm On Oct 30, 2017
https://www.hawnsgist.com/2017/09/top-3-webhosting-companies-in-nigeria.html


Today, the digital world we live in has adopted the strict policy and primitive lifestyle of the distant past in the sense that they both employ the mandate “survive or die”. In the digital sense it’s more like “go digital or fade into obscurity”, but you get the idea.

Because of this, everyone is finding their place in the global space that is the internet, with people opening social media accounts and opening blogs and building websites.

WEBHOSTING:
Like every facility, service or equipment, there are some that are really good, and others that are just bad. When it comes to creating a presence online (for yourself or your business/organization) in the sense of websites and blogs, it is imperative that you choose the best equipment (which in this case means web hosting agent/company) for your business.

Hawnsgist.com has tested and reviewed the webhosting services we have in Nigeria and in every opinion poll, every review, every survey; three webhost companies are at the forefront in Webhosting in Nigeria in terms of service, affordability and efficiency.

Listed below (in no specific order) are the top 3 web hosts in Nigeria.

1.Qserver
QSERVER WEBHOST NIGERIA

Qserver is commonly regarded as the best webhosting company in Nigeria. All of their plans are affordable, reasonable and consumer attractive. They even give free SSL! (Although the case of free SSL is provided by other web hosts, it is the only one with free SSL in this list).

You may ask, What is SSL?

I’m sure by now you’ve noticed some websites are either http://www.example.com or https://www.example.com . The difference which is the “s” present in https:// and not present in http:// is as a result of an SSL certificate. An SSL certificate is a security certificate that helps protect and encode information on your website, making it very difficult for spy and hack tools to be used on the website. You will notice that big sites like Facebook and Twitter use and SSL certificate that is why they have https:// instead of http://. You can check this site (hawnsgist.com) too, it has an SSL certificate.

Why Do I Need an SSL Certificate?

Frankly, it’s not really necessary for bloggers but for sites where passwords have to be entered, an SSL certificate is needed. Furthermore, google tends to take sites with SSL certificates more seriously, so it indirectly helps your ranking on google.
BACK TO QSERVER WEBHOSTING…..

Their hosting plans are really cheap, their shared hosting plans starting from as low as N350 per month (N3,500 per year) till the highest package placed at N1,700 per month (N17,000 per year).
