Some years back, it wasn’t easy hosting a website in Nigeria without a paypal account or a valid credit card. Back in 2008, I remember running countless google searches, looking web hosts that accept liberty reserve for web hosting and domain name registration since I didn’t have a paypal account back then and the debit card I had never worked. The last few years has been very good in the Nigerian ICT industry with the emergence of local web hosting companies. It’s now easy to host a website and register domain names, paying for the service in Naira without necessarily having a credit card or paypal account.
I have to emphasize that the list of Nigerian web hosts in this blog post is just a list, not a recommendation. You can use them at your own discretion as I haven’t hosted with any of the listed sites. I’m presently hosting with Hostgator. They have a reliable service as far as I’m concerned because my web forum has never had a major downtime since I started hosting with them. It’s a US based hosting company and you might want to try them out. I paid for their service with my Guarantee Trust Bank Mastercard.
Now back to the main subject, I know quite a few bloggers hosting their blogs on some of these Nigerian web hosts below but I suggest you do some background research on them as I won’t be held responsible for any issues. This is a list, not a recommendation. That doesn’t imply that your site is not safe with them as well.
Some of these Nigerian webhosts and domain registrars offer convenient mode of payment such as bank transfer, liberty reserve and so on. You can even pay for web hosting service using MTN recharge cards as seen on www.matthosting.net.
Like I said earlier, be wise choose a reliable one. You can state your experience with any of them or add anyone I omitted in the comment box.
