Making a choice of Hosting company isn’t one of the easiest thing to do as almost all hosting firms around has learn to use sugar-coated advertising / marketing team who will stop at nothing till an innocent client / serious company is fooled into buying that piece of poo that reminds one of Pentium 1 Intel C.P.U computers of those days only to get terminated when upto 4 visitor stumbles at your site a day in the name of using up %20 of ram allocated to you . Now who wouldn’t use up to %20 of ram / c.p.u when the total available resource of the poo shit of a host is just little above 256mb Ram / 1.4gh c.p.u resource ? That’s the most reason your are gonna agree with me that about %45 of web hosting companies sucks and very unreliable as well.
Before I go ahead with my brief review on syskay.com hosting services I will like to point out the fact that this is not the only Hosting company that I have used as I have used most popular hosting companies like hostgator.com , godaddy.com . atspace.com , tmdhosting.com , few other local hosting like qservers.net and smartweb.com.ng ! And should know what a real hosting company looks like and how they operate too.
I was never a syskay.com fanatics and will never try to be one as I have never personally ordered any stuff from them , the first day I tried doing that was back in 2008 when I wanted to migrate from smartweb.com.ng to syskay.com as a client demanded only to discover there isn’t any option to select “I want to transfer my domain” on their shopping cart .
Syskay.com as a hosting company has been actively in business since 2006 as a local Nigerian Web hosting Company and has earned credibility status among many happy clients who has been using their web hosting platform since the inception . But all I am concerned in this very short review is my own personal experience after using them for 2months in 2010 .
Hosting Features : Their web hosting platform uses the latest version of cpanel and has all the features it promises on their homepage including full php&mysql support , cgi support , forwarding , .htcss mod re-writing , webmail features , email forwarding & etc. Their one click installer also makes the installation of joomla , wordpress , elg , jcow, smf and other cms platform very easy and effortlessly smooth . The only feature their platform lack is the popular site builder available with most hosting providers , you can rate this with 6/10 overall features
Pricing / Uptime: Though I personally haven’t placed any other on their site but this client told me he paid only about $16 (N 2,500) for both hosting and free domain for life which isn’t easily obtainable elsewhere . Their uptime too was superb for the two months I was using them, I only had one downtime throughout the two months precisely on Sunday evening which lasted for about two hours only before being rectified .
Customer Service / Support : I had contacted them only once during the period I was using them about permission problem and got response within 24hrs which isn’t bad for a hosting company with such high number of clients .
Conclusion : This is my own view / opinion about this company for the two months I used their service before handing over the management of the site to the original owner , based on my experience with them I can rate them as relatively excellent company with about 91/100 rating . This does not in any way represent the opinion of any other person —– the comments space below ——– gives you the right to voice your own experience with the services of syskay.com Nigeria web hosting Company
