AfeesHost offers website design and development, domain registration, reseller hosting, shared hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, SSL certificates, and add-ons such as CodeGuard (for backups) and SiteLock (for malware scanning).
This host is located in Abuja, Nigeria, and it serves customers in its home country and beyond. AfeesHost’s website is available only in English.
Features and Ease of Use
AfeesHost offers four shared hosting plans for individuals and businesses. These plans provide:
- 99.99% uptime SLA
- Free SSL certificates
- 500 MB to unlimited disk space
- Up to unlimited bandwidth
- One, two, ten, or unlimited domains
- Free domain registration
Hosted websites sit on the Apache webserver, which in turn sits on the CentOS Linux operating system, and AfeesHost provides the popular and easy-to-use cPanel control panel to manage your hosting account.
First-time webmasters will be pleased to find a website builder that lets you create a professional-looking website within minutes without having to be a web designer or developer. The beginner-friendly features also extend to the Softaculous installer that helps you install a plethora of content management and other programs, including WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and Magneto.
At the other end of the expertise spectrum, you could create a dynamic MySQL database-backed website programmed with PHP.
If shared hosting isn’t sufficient for your needs, you can instead choose a VPS or dedicated server to get greater storage space, better bandwidth, higher security, and more control with full root access. Virtual servers are based on Virtuozzo virtualization, and dedicated servers come with RAID 1 (to guard against disk data disasters) and a 100% uptime guarantee.
Pricing and Support
AfeesHost’s shared hosting fees are well worth it for the features you get, including a free SSL certificate and a free domain (only with the higher plans).
Available billing cycles are one, two, or three years, but there is no money-back guarantee to make you feel better about making a major commitment. However, the downtime warranty will pay back up to 50% of your monthly fees (depending on the degree of downtime).
You can upgrade your hosting plan at any time by paying the price difference.
While the customer support team should be contactable via telephone, ticket, email, or live chat, I have to report that my exploratory email was never answered. If you have to help yourself, you will find a knowledge base and other self-support resources:
