  1. I absolutely love Syskay. I've been using them for some time now and it supports my high traffic. I m very happy with their services and good customer supports. Currently I have 4 sites that are hosted on Syskay servers and every month each of the sites have over 6 millions page views and Syskay never complains.
    Previously i have had problems with different Nigeria Web hosting companies. Syskay? No worries.
    I can't say enough good about Syskay. Seriously, for grown-up webhosting, it's the way to go.

  3. I'm on Syskay, and while I like it (24/7 customer support), I've had a little issues with them (downtime and cost issues). Their servers are not so strong to accommodate high traffic.
    Couple of months ago, i was told by Syskay customer representative that i should move my blog to another web hosting companies, that they can no longer host my website due to high traffic. Then another thing i don't really like about Syskay is Cost. Recently they scrap out the N2500 plan and currently have N6000 plan as the lowest plan which is too high for so many.

    Honestly, I would only recommend them because they have good customer support. I don't really know if Syskay s better than any of the others on the list, because I have not personally tried others.

  6. Nice article, an interesting subject and thanks for sharing.

    When it comes to web hosting in Nigeria, it can be pretty difficult separating the wheat from the chaff.

    Very few quality Nigeria web hosting companies out there and plenty of low-class ones that dominate the industry, over shadowing the few quality ones, leaving innocent and inexperienced web hosting consumers at the mercy of get rich quick web hosts.

  7. For me Qservers are just the best. Can't even think of using any other host.

  8. I'd have titled this "5 Most Popular web hosting companies in Nigeria". In my opinion, high popularity doesn't necessarily mean best. There are quite a few companies around and coming up and until you give them a try, you never can tell.

  10. It's nice to know that the Nigerian web hosting companies are stepping up. I use Host Nigeria http://www.hostnigeria.com.ng and I love everything about the company. They have great customer services and are technically sounded too. I personally rate them No1 just for the quality of their services.
