The most useless hosting company you can ever see, i upgraded and paid very much in advance, 7 days have passed and no response, most of the time their online chat service dont response and even if you open a ticket it will not be replied and later after few days they will close your ticket without even resolving the issue.

NEVER EVER BUY ANY SERVICE FROM THEM

They used to be good.
Well, I have been with Web4Africa for some years now, and believe me, I cant say I have enjoyed their services. I have a reseller account with them and they have been my constant headache. If you wish to host with web4africa, here are things you should know.
1. Your websites can disappear at any time and they will never claim responsibility for it. Happens alot, and you have to start the website from scratch.
2. Customer support is crappy. They will frustrate your life with copy-and-paste responses. They really dont know much.
3. Very slow server. If you can cope with waiting for 30mins for your page to load every time you click on a link, then go for web4africa.
4. Owner doesnt give a crap about you. The owner is Oluniyi Ajao and he doesnt care about customers.
5. Lack of security. My websites got hacked countless times and I had to re-do it all over again.
6. They will never admit that you actually know something about websites, to them, everyone is a dummy. Their only [read more...]

Web4africa is a fraud
Please be warned, do not do business with this company because it is useless and will destroy your business. The worst customer support I had ever experienced.

Here is one my experiences:
I purchased many domain names from them,
I tried to transfer two of these to another registrar, so I asked them to provide me with my EPP code and also remove the privacy (they are under obligation to do so by ICANN),
They asked my why, and I honestly said it was due to the cost,
They never provided me with the info and instead renewed the domain name for 1 year, so that I have to be stuck with them,
So my company website and 1 of my client's websites are down, affecting my business seriously,
Initially I only wanted to transfer my open TLDS, but now I have to move my ccTLDs and Hosting as well.

SO BEWARE YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

Web4africa is just not ok
I have been having series of problem wit them just suspending my account for no reason. The most annoying is that when u open a support ticket wit them, it takes more than 48hrs to get a response. My account has been suspended for weeks now, and they are so unresponsive about it.i think they should just upgrad their services, though their prices are fair.

The control panel does not permit the basics to verify domain ownership. But worse than this, it has taken over 12h to get a support officer to consider to do this on my behalf. Were I at this time be pausing a customer project for this trivial reason I may as well charge the customer a bit more and move to a host whic provides a better customer experience.

The price is great, but unfortunatly if the reason for a low price is that we have limited contols and limited support for really simple tasks, I will have to reconsider.
We're working on a feature to ease the advanced DNS management.
Thanks for your feedback.

This is the worst hosting I've ever seen in my life..
Although their rates are good, their hosting suckz

Their servers are damn slow and they will ban you without any reason if you start getting more traffic, no matter how much bandwidth you use..And then they will just give you a fake reason that you violated TOS etc

Their customer support is extremely BAD!
They say that they will refund you within 30 days of hosting, if you don't like it..
But when you actually claim a refund, they will just terminate your ip and won't reply to your support tickets or chat...

I have used their silver package....In the beginning they were good but later on they showed their colors and I faced a huge loss just because of them..

It's nothing but just a scam...
Their low rates are just to attract the customer! But later on you will realize that you made a biggest mistake in your life!
I already wrote a review about it, but at that time hosting was good, and as I've mentioned, after [read more...]
