We ask top Web Developers and Web Designers to tell us why and how they choose Best Nigeria Web Hosting Providers and How To Know The Worst Nigeria Web Hosting before purchasing any, here is their host reviews
One major reason why most website owners go for Web Hosting in Nigeria is because of the high conversion rate of Naira to Dollar and renewal fee the second year.
Here is Why,
Foreign Web Hosting like Namecheap, Bluehost, GoDaddy, Hostinger, Kinsta, HostGator and iPage are usually seen as the most Reliable web hosting as recommended by experts globally.
But, you as a beginner webmaster, blogger and website owner in Nigeria might not have the money to pay in dollars for these above-mentioned web hosting and keep renewing your hosting plan.
That is why we just try to manage Web Hosting in Nigeria that we can pay our Naira to without stress.
However, I have personal experience on this.

Let me share a bit of me share with you, we back when I started blogging.
Why Your Web Hosting Is Important
I first started blogging using Google Blogger (Blogspot), a free host by google and that was the cheapest way to start a blog for free.
Along the blogging journey, I got approved by AdSense and had to moved to WordPress where I will be able to monetize my website blog more.
In search for Web Hosting to use for the self WordPress hosting, I came across a foreign web hosting company – iPage Web Hosting Provider in the United States of America (USA).
iPage was initially founded in 1998 as a full web service provider, but the company re-launched operations as a web hosting provider in 2009. It’s currently owned by Endurance International Group. iPage hosts currently more than one million websites in its two large data centers. However, iPage faces criticism for its speed, uptime, and customer support. Be advised of random billing. According to a source from Wikipedia.
As at my first year of signing up for iPage, the price was fairly cheap, and I was able to afford it then because I had a job that I supported myself with and wanted to grow my source of income from blogging.
I enjoyed using iPage Web hosting and had no single problem, but after my first year of using iPage.
It was now time for renewal and I discovered that the price of renewing is X5 of the initial price, that was too high for me as a working student in the computer science field.
I just graduated from my computer science institution, trying to save money for JAMB to get admission into university to further.
I had no choice than to look for cheap Web Hosting that I can also pay in Naira, which led me to go for WhoGoHost Web hosting in Nigeria.
Whogohost was founded in the year 2007 and over the years, have grown to become the leading web hosting company in Nigeria. According to LinkedIn
I felt so successful because I can easily pay in Naira, and it was very cheap, could even call their customer support and chat them up in WhatsApp because it was in my country.
But, here is what happen.
As my traffic grew, and I created other website in same web hosting server. I started experiencing critical error on my websites.
From Resource sever limit reached to Critical Error on WordPress, Server downtime.
Different issues to handle and for each problem, I contact them, and they fix it, but problem kept arising on regular basis.
Sometime, I will think my site is working only to discover that frontend is not accessible.
WhoGoHost server frustrated me and I almost quit blogging.
This made my revenue (income) from Google AdSense and Affiliate program to keep decreasing and sometime nothing earned.
I could not focus on my blog because I now have to deal with technical issues than creating new blog post for my blog.
Because I had no other choice, I use this frustrated service for like 3 years and finally find another alternative to WhoGoHost.
Truehost was the new web hosting I discovered and was kind of save exist for me, among other web hosting I research for.
Though I saw DomainKing.ng and other hosting, TrueHost had some level of been the best option for me.
