DomainKing Review: Best Hosting Company in Nigeria or not?



When it comes to choosing a hosting company in Nigeria, one has to be careful as there have been some very bad experiences on the part of users.

In other cases, the story can be different. There are some very good hosting companies in Nigeria yet with very cheap costs of services.

One of them is DomainKing hosting company.

Since I'm a webmaster, I've come across different clients. Some could not afford to buy a domain name and hosting space from a foreign hosting company. So, finding a good local hosting company was necessary. That's why I opted for DomainKing and the experience has been wonderful.

Across the internet, you will find very good reviews on DomainKing also attesting to their good service. From my experience, DomainKing is the best hosting company in Nigeria.


ABOUT DOMAIN KING:

DomainKing is Nigerian registration and hosting company with servers in India.

They only offer shared hosting and are currently offering their services to more than 7,000 website owners both in Nigeria and neighbouring countries.

Started way back in 2014, they have come a long way of acquiring experience and also adjusting to the market requirement.

DomainKing does not only offer reliable hosting solutions but with the cheapest prices around.

DomainKing for me is the best in the country no wonder their customer base is growing quickly.


WHY USE DOMAINKIING?

When considering a hosting company some factors need to be taken into consideration. Some of the factors are:

  1. Website speed
  2. Good assistance
  3. Cheap pricing
  4. Good customer service
1) Cheapest Prices for domain names and hosting: DomainKing offers the most affordable prices in the country for both domain name registration and buying hosting space.

You can get the .com.ng domain extension for as low as #999. The .com domain extension goes for #3,800 while the .ng extension goes for #7,999 all for 1 year.

All the available domain here come with free Whois Protection, Free DNS Management and Free Privacy Protection.

Just like the prices of the domain names, the prices for hosting plans available are also cheap. There is a plan even for the lowest budget.
