A review of VPS Hosting in Nigeria

Computer / Network security

A few months ago, I had the privilege of discussing in-country hosting with the CEO of Web4Africa. He informed me he was about to start offering hosting accounts in datacenters here in Lagos.

I’ve always been a proponent of internet performance and one of the major issues with the performance of internet applications is that of latency. Latency is the amount of time it takes for you to send a request and to get a response. Back in the days when all the Internet access we had in the country was via satellite, it was not uncommon to have round trip times of 3000ms and above (i.e. you send a packet to a server and you only got the acknowledgement 3 seconds later). This was okay back then when Internet traffic was mostly bulk data transfers. These days, you deal with applications that require sub-second response times (hello the realtime web) and latency has become an all too important factor in the drive to satisfy Internet users impatience in getting what the want as quickly as they can.

Web developers have had to rely on web hosting companies with servers hosted in other data centers around the world. At best, our applications couldn’t do better in round trip times of at least 100ms. No longer do we have to put up with this and neither should your users do the same. We now have affordable servers in our country! You can put your development environment now on a server in Ikeja or Victoria Island and work directly from the terminal and have a near realtime experience (it’s as though you were working locally on your computer’s terminal).

Oluniyi gave me early access to his server infrastructure and I’ve been using it for a few months now and my experience has been a somewhat bittersweet one. I assumed that I would ping the server and get at most 40ms (given that I was using wireless Internet, that was an acceptable RTT). My experience was mixed.

Like in other countries, there is a local Internet exchange in Lagos providing peering for ISPs with infrastructure in the state and (like every properly configured data center) the data center that Web4Africa’s local servers are colocated is connected to the local exchange; however not all ISPs are connected or have properly configured routing to leverage the exchange and so on the well engineered networks of some ISPs I would get RTTs of 20ms or even 13ms and on the badly configured or no-peering ISPs, I would have even worse RTTs (200ms) because data has to transit through London before coming back to Lagos. So packets will originate from Lagos, transit through routers in London and then terminate in Lagos again.

I currently only host a local bitcoin node on this development server and the network performance and uptime has been stellar. Web4Africa is a very competent hosting service and I cannot recommend them highly enough. High server specs and solid state drives will ensure that your applications perform at their optimum.

Pricing is not as you would expect when comparing it to foreign providers and the reason is a simple one: the cost structures are different – data center operators have to generate their own power which increase the cost for service providers. Nonetheless, they are competitively priced and if you’re a performance nut like me, then you should definitely sign up and start testing your applications with them. Your users will definitely be happier and thank you for it.

Even though I mentioned worse performance while testing the services from some other ISPs, what’s important to note is that, this will only get better. When sufficient content is hosted locally, ISPs will start to optimize their networks to take advantage of peering arrangements provided by the local exchange.

Written by Tim Akinbo. He is the Founder and CEO of TimbaObjects Company.from Lagos Nigeria.

Note: The high latency on a few networks mentioned above is due to their inactive local peering. Web4Africa is already engaging the management of IXPN for improvement in the user experience.

Web4Africa extends web hosting infrastructure to Nigeria

Flag Map of Nigeria

Web4Africa, a leading pan-African web hosting company and accredited domain registrar has extended its web hosting infrastructure to  Nigeria, making it the first web hosting company to do so.

Flag Map of NigeriaFrom an award-winning Tier-III data centre in Lagos Nigeria, Web4Africa is poised to offer its regular services from its West African network Point-of-Presence. These services include: shared Web Hosting, Reseller Hosting, Virtual Private Server (VPS) Hosting and Cloud Hosting.

To offer the very best experience to residents of Nigeria, Web4Africa is peering openly at the Internet Exchange Point of Nigeria (IXPN), with a 100Mbps connectivity to all the leading operators openly available at the exchange point in Lagos.

From the Nigeria data centre, Web4Africa has access to clean, 100% stable and redundant power supply, as well as top-notch physical security.

In the words of Oluniyi Ajao, M/D of Web4Africa:

We are in Africa and Africa is in us. We are committed to bringing world-class web hosting to Africa and Africans, meeting the needs of businesses and other entities. Our extension to Lagos Nigeria is one of the first steps towards this goal.

The installed infrastructure has been carefully engineered for excellence with speed and redundancy built into every layer of the hardware.

Residents of Nigeria would have access to low-latency and high-speed data hosting services with varying service options targeted at developers, SMEs, NGOs, corporates and government departments.

Web4Africa has the experience and credibility to drive the need for local web content development in Nigeria. Web4Africa currently serves existing clients from its own server hardware in a Tier-III data centre in South Africa, powered by its own multi-homed resilient IP network. Web4Africa currently peers openly at 1Gbps on Africa’s first internet exchange – the Johannesburg Internet Exchange (JINX) and enjoys direct connectivity to some major South African and pan-African IP carriers.

Web4Africa gains accreditation for .mobi, .asia, .me domains

Web4Africa, an ICANN accredited domain registrar, this week gained accreditation for the domains .mobi, .asia and .me from their respective registries.

.mobi is targeted at websites intended for mobile device use. With over 1 million domains, .mobi is the 6th most popular generic domain extension in the world. Africa is home to a large number of mobile internet users. Web4Africa will promote .mobi domains to our entire clientbase.

.asia serves as a regional domain for companies, organizations, and individuals based in the region of Asia, Australia, and the Pacific. It is increasingly gaining wide popularity in that part of the world. We intend to promote .asia to our clients based in that region.

.me positions itself for global use like a personal namespace and can be registered and used for any purpose. It is used by businesses in Maine, Middle East and is popular for domain hacks. If its personal, your best domain name is .me

Web4Africa is the ONLY domain registrar to be accredited for any of .mobi, .asia and .me domains in Africa. We are not resting and are very driven to keep offering the best value to our clients. Our new and existing clients should gain some price savings from the respective domains, in the coming days.

What is .africa? [video]

dot africa domain name

Web4Africa is not only in Africa, Africa is in us as well and this is why we are so excited about the up-coming .africa domain name system.

You might wonder, what is .africa and how can I use it? The video below from ZACR explains this and more in a very easy-to-understand manner. Should you have any further question(s), feel free to ask in the comments section.

Introducing the new .africa domain name system

.africa is the proposed domain name system for the African continent. It would serve as the regional Top-Level Domain for Africa, just as .eu is to Europe and .asia is to Asia.

Main Purpose of .africa

A .africa domain name would be the perfect way to target the African continent for a website that has a pan-African audience or market.

Africa

Although all 54 African countries already have their respective Country-Code Top-Level Domains (cc-TLDs), .africa is still relevant and does not necessarily compete with the existing African ccTLDs, but instead complements them. Examples of popular African ccTLDs are: .ng (Nigeria), .za (South Africa), .eg (Egypt), .ke (Kenya) etc.

Market Potential of Africa
With a population of over 1 billion people, and a landmass of about 30.2 million square kilometres, Africa is the world’s 2nd most populous continent, and the 2nd most largest continent.

Two African organizations are currently vying for control over the .africa domain system. The winner would operate a new registry that would manage the technical and commerial operations of .africa.

Web4Africa being a leading domain registrar on the African continent has already taken a front seat at the observation deck of the on-going ICANN new gTLD review, with the mind of being one of the earliest registrars to offer the new .africa domain.
