The website can become slow or simply unavailable due to a technical issue or other. This would be a clear indication that your website is due for an upgrade regarding the type of hosting used.
Why your business might be ready for a server in Nigeria
At some point, every business experiences some form of growth pain or the other, even with their website.
- Slow speed: A slow website could be a result of hosting your website on a shared web hosting plan. Shared hosting accounts are typically on a server along with many other domains/accounts. In some cases, such servers are overcrowded, resulting in a slow experience for every domain hosted on such servers.
- Unavailable website: servers used for shared hosting that are not properly managed can slow to a halt, bringing down all the domains hosted on them. This is not an uncommon occurrence.
For a fast-growing business, a slow or non-responsive website is not an option. Thus, it is necessary to invest in the best solutions possible for ensuring a speedy website that is available all the time and delivers a good user experience for your clients, users or readers as the case may be.
There are several credible scenarios or combinations of server hosting. One of the simplest is VPS Hosting.
Virtual Server Hosting
Also known as VPS Hosting, this refers to a solution where a dedicated server is used to create an environment that can host multiple virtual servers. These servers have most characters of a bare-metal dedicated server, including full root access.
Virtual Servers offer a private hosting environment for growing websites to scale on their own terms and not have to share resources with other users.
Web4Africa offers VPS Hosting using a technology that supports dedicated memory, dedicated storage and fast processors. Clients are able to choose from any of the popular Operating Systems for their web apps or websites.
Not only does Web4Africa offer a wide range of VPS Hosting plans, but also offers the option of a data centre in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya or South Africa. This allows business to host their website in the location closest to most of their users, audience, or marketplace. Websites in a geographically close data centre result in lower latency and thus a better user experience generally.
Unlike a shared hosting environment that limits what can be installed, a virtual server offers a blank canvas for just about any operating system or web application to be installed. Web4Africa offers limitless possibilities on what can be deployed for use by businesses.
