After reading this post, you shall determine whether a Nigerian Host or Foreign Host is best for your business/organization or personal blog and while.
Now, what do you understand by the term “Web Hosting”?
I definitely won’t bore you with that but, I will try to briefly explain it further to you the way I understand. Maybe you will get to learn more from me.
Take for instance you wish to open a fashion shop, you will either buy a land or rent from a local landlord. I believe every Nigerian understands this little analogy. This simply explains the concept of “Web Hosting” whereby, you either set up your own server (eg. Facebook, Google, Microsoft, etc… have their own), where you host your website infrastructure or you buy from other web hosting resellers like WebManager.NG.
The act of buying from other resellers is what we majorly practice now due to the high cost of setting up your own hosting infrastructure.

Nigerian Host VS Foreign Host
I will briefly differentiate between hosting your website with Nigerian providers and Hosting it with a Foreign based Host.
In as much as we believe that what the whites provide are a bit better than our locally made products and services, what if you are wrong? Now, look at this – Take for instance you purchase a brand new wrist watch with a foreign wrist watch seller, upon the arrival of the product, you discover that it’s damaged. You know the rest of the story.
Secondly, hosting your website with a foreign based company can prone you to loses. What do I mean by that, you pay in foreign currencies like USD & Pounds which can be affected by the exchange rate thereby making you pay more. Whereas, Nigerian hosts most especially the ones listed above offer payments in Naira which increases the ease of payment and service provisioning.
In summary, Nigerians are highly encouraged to use their local web host for a better approach to digital solutions.
