VBHOSTNET is a Nigeria-based web hosting company dedicated to providing its customers with a user-friendly and reliable service.

Overview

VBHOSTNET-overview1

VBHOSTNET is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.

VBHOSTNET, short for ViewBound Hosting Network, is a privately-owned company by Viewbound Systems Technology. The company is located in Nigeria and was founded in 2010. The company offers affordable web hosting services for customers located in Africa and Nigeria. Services and support are available primarily in English.

Features and Ease of Use

VBHOSTNET offers shared, reseller, VPS, and dedicated server hosting that can accommodate businesses of all sizes in Nigeria and Africa. The features included in its shared hosting packages include:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Free SSL certificate for enhanced online and offline security
  • Free .com.ng or .org.ng domain
  • Cloudflare and CloudLinux OS
  • Attracta SEO tools
  • cPanel
  • Unlimited MySQL databases in all shared hosting packages

Beginners will be happy to know that VBHOSTNET also offers the RVsitebuilder, enabling you to get a website up quickly with zero coding knowledge. You can access this easily via your control panel.

You also get free daily backups included in your shared hosting packages, which is an important feature if you’re planning on installing WordPress. VBHOSTNET also offers a free WordPress setup service, although sadly there’s no one-click app installer available.

Once you’re ready to upgrade, VBHOSTNET gives you a choice between a Linux-based or Windows-based VPS with plans that contain anywhere between 1 GB to 4 GB RAM. There are also dedicated server packages available with up to 800GB SATA storage, 16GB DDR3 RAM, and full root access.

Pricing and Support

Even though the company is looking into introducing more flexible billing terms for its customers, the current plans are quite affordable. For now, you can get a half-yearly, annual, or two-year plan that will be worth every single coin.

Payment options include bank payments for both local and international clients as well as PayPal.

In case you’ve paid for a package and are unsatisfied with the services, you can also take advantage of a 14-day money back guarantee.

VBHOSTNET-overview2

VBHOSTNET prides itself on its 24/7 customer support. The current support channels include:

  • Live chat
  • Phone
  • Email
  • Tickets

I had the pleasure of interacting with their live chat agents and I have to admit that I was impressed. Most important was the human factor through the personally-crafted answers plus the knowledge of their agents on the web hosting issues I raised was sharp. I didn’t have to spend a long time waiting for a response; it took them less than five seconds to get back to me.

A Free Domain is included when purchasing any hosting service from VBHOSTNET

Very Bad Service, Very very Bad Customer service

Hosting domains with vbhostnet is one of the greatest mistakes anyone can ever make. Their interest is to take your money and give you value far below what you paid for. Sites will be down for many days without reason and when you try to reach them phone they will only answer your calls probably ones or twice a year and answer your support ticket ones in three or four months all depending on when they feel they want to respond or on the issue raised. I advice anyone who want to go for vbhostnet to think otherwise, else, they may have to regret ever signing up with them just like I do.

Their customer care is zero.

They never reply any of your request for help. You will wait for eternity. I have been writing them for over 8months and they have not done anything. They don't even pick their calls, you will call for eternity. Though their service has improved.

Bottom line on VBHOSTNET

VBHOSTNET is your one-stop shop for high-quality Nigeria-based web hosting, free SSL certificates, outstanding support, and up-to-date dedicated servers — all at affordable rates without any hidden costs even upon renewal.

VBHOSTNET might offer a good service at a reasonable price, but does it match up with the top web hosting companies? We find it hard to say “yes.”

Pros:

  • 24/7 customer support
  • Affordable packages
  • At least 99% server uptime
  • Live chat support available

Cons:

  • Only available in English
  • Only free .com.ng or .org.ng domain offered
