These are the top web hosting sites used by Nigerian web developers. As a Nigerian one would expect that these hosting companies will be Nigerian right? Sorry to disappoint you. Nigerian hosting sites are not bad but they are a far cry from their foreign counterparts especially in quality of customer services and amount of traffic they can cater for.
Another thing again is that some of these Nigerian web hosting companies are resellers or middle men for foreign web hosting companies. They have to make their profits therefore in the long run they might be more expensive. These sites have been selected after extensive research and opinions from Nigerian web masters.
These are the top 10 web hosting sites in Nigeria in no particular order.
