do you know any affordable web hosting in west africa?
im working on a side project and i cant pay more than 10 or 12$/month.
Hi, Use Netlify.
any body here used routerhosting.com ???
they have a 7 day trial and good reviews!
No. But you asked for “web hosting” not “VPS hosting”. VPS hosting can be cheaper, but you have to create your own web hotel - sort of.
And where your site geographically is, can be less important if you use CDN (Cloudflare etc) to cache your site.
i think vps is a better option for me according to my budget.
I switched from web hosting to VPS several years ago, but it was not an easy task. You must know about DNS, Nginx (or similar), uploading, firewalls etc. But I do not regret my move as my server is not shared by others.
If you have the skills and time, this is a good move. But if the budget is the main reason, I doubt that this is a good option for you.
thank you very much.
i think i can take care of those.
do you have a checklist(or something like that) for finding a good quality vps provider?
Not really. But some points are:
- ssh root access is a must.
- And find a host that not lock you in for years
- Avoid low price first year and expensive following years.
- Speed and uptime should be as good as possible.
- And check the simplicity of their control panel.
- And better select a bigger player than a small without resources.
Personally I avoid the big three (AWS, Google, Azure). Not because they are bad, but because I could not figure out what the price was. Their price lists are unbelievably huge.
My favorite is UpCloud, but I should also consider Digital Ocean, Linode or Vultr. They all have servers around the world.
