Games / Bet9ja VS BetKing which one is the best (Comparison)
« on: March 10, 2019, 08:50:55 AM »
I have seen many having series of argument about Bet9ja and Betking but today I will clear the air, sharing my experience so far on those 2 online betting platform.

I personally play betting for both fun and to make some extra cash and I use both of the top online betting platforms in Nigeria, my favorite is always Bet9ja and Betking though, that doesn't make other bookies bad.

If you are interested to know the best between Bet9ja and Betking then you will surely find answers to most of your questions and my answers is not about who I like most but how they both work.

No one paid me to write this, neither am I trying to promote or demote any of them but to tell you the truth and it's your choice to decide which one to use.


I don't normally go to offline betting shops to place a bet and my comparison will be based on my online experience as an individual, since am not equally an agent.

Bet9ja VS BetKing


Which of the 2 bookies is your favorite, have you used both of them for at least 2 months, if yes you surely know the best but I have been using both of them for a long time now and I know how they work which is why I am here to share my experience.

Which one offers the best Odds?

Betking is boosting of higher Odds which is partially true but when I compared them they are relatively the same, the only difference is that when you book longer games then Betking might be slightly higher.

Example.

Bet A gives you 1.80 Odds (Betking)
The same Bet A might give you 1.75 Odds (Bet9ja)

Bet B gives you 2.10 Odds (Betking)
The same bet B might give you 2.15 Odds in Bet9ja that is why I believe they are just the same with little changes in different games.

Bonus on accumulated games

The two bookies are both doing great in terms of bonuses and I can't differentiate between them but like I said when you bet long games Betking will give you better Odds in some cases.

Customer  Support

As an individual, not an agent have you ever encountered any problem that made you contact Bet9ja or Betking customer care if yes how did it go?

Since I use both of them I will give BetKing the credit, they are far better than Bet9ja though, you might argue is because they don't have as many customers Bet9ja has which I disagree, is all about packaging and strategies.

Betking enabled online chat to help their customers with any kind of problem or questions they might have while Be9ja recently enabled a messaging system that takes hours or days to respond to.

Fast Payout

Betking is truly the king when it comes to payout, it doesn't matter if you win on Saturday or Sunday your money will be sent to you in few minutes or hours.

With Betking no one cares about the weekend or holidays while Bet9ja not only delays in payment but don't pay at all on weekends but only on general working days which is unacceptable.

Online and Offline cashout

Betking was the first to offer online and offline bet cash out but Bet9ja recently joined the moving train and started offering offline cashout. Presently there is no clear winner here in terms of cashout.

Ease of use

BetKing looks great but Bet9ja looks more simple, loads faster and easier use but they almost look the same with different color backgrounds.

Regular Free Bonus offers

Bet9ja is master here, they know how to keep their customers and offering them bonuses on a regular basis is one of the means they use to make their customers come back for more.

Example

Quote
Hi COLLINS,

Opt-in now for a 50% Deposit Bonus of up to NGN 10,000!

Getting the bonus is easy. Simply:

 Opt-in with your User ID by 23.59 on Sunday 

 Deposit NGN 200 or more from Tuesday 12th - Thursday 14th March

 Receive 50% back up to NGN 10,000!

BetKing has not started giving out bonuses the way Bet9ja does and for that reason, Bet9ja is best in terms of free bonus offers.

Education / New Date for 2019 Jamb Mock Exam
« on: March 09, 2019, 07:37:11 AM »
Jamb has not officially announced the date for the main Jamb Exam yet but recently fixed the date for the Jamb mock exam designed to prepare students for the main Jamb.

According to a reliable source, Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has fixed Saturday, March 23rd, 2019 as the new date for the conduct of the 2019 UTME mock exam. The board has also directed all eligible candidates for the mock exam to commence the printing of their mock examination notification slips as from Wednesday, March 6th, 2019 in order to know their venue and time for the mock exam.

UPDATE:
JAMB has rescheduled the conduct of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to 11th April


The actual date for the main exam is yet to be announced by the board but a source hinted that the exam has been shifted to April 16th, 2019. However, this is yet to be officially confirmed by JAMB.



In a statement by the JAMB spokesman Fabian Benjamin, 2019 UTME Candidates have been urged to guard all their details pertaining to the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME/DE) Direct Entry.

He reminded the candidates that the purpose of the mock exam is to ascertain the readiness of its system for the exam and help candidates especially those that are not familiar with CBT to get themselves acquainted with it.

He debunked the rumor that that marks from the mock examination would be added to scores obtained in the main examination.

Phones / Leagoo Z9 specs and Price in Nigeria (Pros & Cons)
« on: February 15, 2019, 03:07:34 PM »
Leagoo Mobile has announced and released an affordable Android smartphone on their Z series (Leagoo Z9) featuring 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM, 5.0 FWVGA TN display, Android Go operating system, 2000 mAh battery capacity, and 5MP rear camera + 2MP front selfie camera.

Obviously, Leagoo Z9 lacks a lot in terms of features but perfect for budget-minded users who don't wish to spend lots of cash on a high-end smartphone that will cost more and offer good features and functionalities.



I will not write off this phone because you don't expect it to have the same features with Infinix Hot 6X that cost N44,000 while it cost N17K plus.

Price

This phone is currently available on Jumia selling at the rate of N17,500

Who can buy Leagoo Z9



If you are looking for a small cheap Android smartphone that still offers you some good value for your money then consider going for this phone but if you are looking for the best smartphone with best features then you need to look for something else.

Leagoo Z9 Review



The phone is designed with 5.0-inch FWVGA display,  854 x 480 resolution and 136.5*72.3*10.4mm dimensions coupled with an outstanding half doted body design that makes it attractive, unique and easy to fit in your palms.

It has an optimized Android GO operating system that allows you to enjoy all the features that Android Os offers with unlimited access to games and apps from play store.

To perfect the performance of the smartphone it has MT6580M Octa core, 1.3GHz processor that ensures good speed and stability.

In other words, we have onboard 1GB random access memory, and 8GB internal storage memory while some believe the phone has 16GB storage memory but after checking Leagoo official site, I noticed it only offers 8GB Rom and not 16GB.

The camera is not of the best quality but a 5MP rear camera and the 2MP front is something you that can keep you going until you have any money to upgrade.

To summarise it, the new Leagoo Z9 is powered by a removable 2000 mAh battery capacity which is not that bad because you still have the advantage of using two batteries since its removable compared to non-removable battery smartphones.

Pros

⇒ Low budget (Affordable to buy)
⇒ Good features
⇒ Dual Sim
⇒ Removable battery (Can use more than one batteries)
⇒ Perfect design (despite the price the phone looks attractive)

Cons

⇒ Not of High quality
⇒ Doesn't have fingerprint sensor or face ID
⇒ Don't have 4G LITE

Latest-News / Go Out and VOTE, Exercise your franchise, it's your Right
« on: February 15, 2019, 01:42:35 PM »
All the arguments and noise on who is going to be the next Nigerian President is coming to an end and its time for action, the time Nigerians need to decide who they really want as a President.

We don't even have days before the 2019 general election but a matter of a few hours from now but the question is, are you ready to vote and exercise your franchise?



I have not actually published any post about the upcoming general election until now because I was busy monitoring the situation and peoples mindset towards the 2019 general election.

Specifically, I am not here to predict who is going to win the election but I was motivated to write about this post after perceiving some negative beliefs and mindsets of the people.

Don't mind me anyway, you are entitled to your own belief and thoughts, you have every right to decide what you do and how you do them but I have got something important to tell you.

Peoples Negative beliefs and Mindsets towards 2019 general election



No doubt, what I call negative might be positive to you and there is nothing wrong with that but I will surely try to prove my point why I tagged certain thinking and beliefs negative.

Firstly, I was able to ascertain peoples thought towards the 2019 general election by asking different questions to individuals and groups, I asked something like:

  • Do you have a PVC?
  • Are you going to vote?
  • Who are you going to vote for?
  • How do you see the upcoming election?
  • Why are you not willing to vote?

My observations after asking these questions, I noticed that many don't wish to be part of the election and not willing to come out and cast their vote especially the Igbos with the reason that things might turn violent and the only way to protect their life is to stay at home.
Many also think that their vote will not count and don't see any reason to stress themselves while some believe they don't belong to Nigeria and shouldn't be involved.

Well, you are right in your own way but let me tell you something, abstaining yourself will not favor you in any way and if you are still following the initial boycott election order issued by Nnamdi Kanu then you are making a mistake because you can't achieve freedom by abstaining yourself from the election and even Nnamdi Kanu later retracted his steps and recently called off the election boycott order understanding the negative impact it will incur to Igbos.

Use what happened in Anambra state as a lesson, after you were instructed to boycott election does it prevent them from having a Governor or prevent Obiano from emerging as a winner in one way or the other.

Anambra state Governorship election was boycotted by many as instructed by IPOB but now does that give you the freedom you desire or help in any way, yet you follow and obey all the rules and regulations made by the Governor that you don't want to vote in or out.

Believing that your vote will not count is equally not wise thinking because two wrongs don't make right, you need to do your own part and hope for the best.

We all pray for a peaceful election and don't wish to see any violence in any part of Nigeria and by his grace you will be safe while casting your vote, in that way you are doing the right thing and helping the entire country.

If you don't have voters card (PVC) don't worry, just try and get one because you really need it

Finally, be a good Nigerian and help decide the next Nigerian President because when you don't vote you are cheating yourself.

Telecom / How to Win N5000 on MTN Retailers Reward Promo
« on: February 15, 2019, 10:40:43 AM »
The Mobile Telecommunication giant MTN recently introduced a new package for their subscribers called MTN Retailers Rewards designed to compensate all MTN users who can be able to bring old MTN users back to the network.

Due to increasing competitions among Nigerian mobile telecoms, many of them will be pleased to see their old subscribers who ditched their network for another to come back and that is why many of them are trying anything possible to keep their users active even with a huge reward.


How does MTN Retailers Reward work?



Just like I said earlier MTN wants their old customers back online and they are willing to reward you if you can help them, and that's it.

You will be rewarded with N5000 if you can bring up to 20 inactive MTN SIM back to the network then you will be rewarded with 5k, no stories, no delay.

Note:

This is just an Airtime reward and not for cash which means that MTN will not send 5k to your bank account but credit your phone with 5K, read on to find out more.

Now, you know what the program is all about and if you want to make the 5k yours then let see how it works and how you can earn this money.

How does it work?



The good news is that MTN created a step by step guide on how to participate in this retailers reward and if you are asking how to find 20 inactive MTN numbers or how to bring them back to the network then follow this simple steps below.

Step 1

The first thing to do is to check if a customer is eligible or has inactive SIM by dialing *992*Customer number# example *992*080395*****# and then you will see whether the person is eligible or has other inactive MTN SIM.

Step 2

The first step will surely help your find inactive MTN numbers but the question is what next?
You simply need to persuade and tell them what they stand to gain when they come back and start making use of their MTN SIM.

To make this work MTN are willing to reward inactive SIM users with 2000% bonus on airtime recharge and offer them an amazing discount for data subscription 1GB for N200 "Who can resist this offer"

1GB for N200 subscription code, if they doubt you tell them to dial *131*65# and receive 1GB for N200

Explaining this offer to them will surely bring them back and once they are back you make 5k and they enjoy an outrageous bonus, 50/50 game right?

Step 3

It's time to tell MTN you have done your own part by dialing *992*1*customer number# example *992*1*080308*****# from your phone to submit the number you reactivated to get an instant reward of N100.

Finally, Ensure that the customer uses at least N400 and above within 60 days to get an additional N100 at the month end and another N50 after 60 days making it

Reactivation = N100
Reactivated Sim to use Up to 400 and above = N100
After 60 days = N50


Total = N250 per user.
250 x 20 = N5000 earnings

webmasters / Best SEO online free tools every webmaster needs
« on: January 22, 2019, 04:02:29 PM »
Have you been able to find any good SEO tools that can help you analyze your website and that of your competitors for better ranking?
No doubt there are various online free SEO tools you might be using right now but I have more to add to the list of those ones you are using right now with an explanation on how they work.

The problem we are facing with some popular SEO tools is the price, you must pay heavily to use those tools with lots of limitations when using their free plan but I will start the list with those great online tools you can use completely free of charge.

What differentiates Nigerian bloggers and those Indian guys that makes thousands of dollars on a monthly basis is their dedication and ability to invest in most of those expensive SEO tools that will help them trank and boost their web presence.

I understand how hard it can be spending hundreds of dollars yearly for SEO tools but there are still good alternatives free online SEO tools you can use which am going to share right now.

Best free online SEO tools you should be using


In case you are not familiar with the term (SEO), it stands for search engine optimization and I am talking about those free online tools that can help webmasters analyze and optimize their websites for good search engine ranking.

Website SEO checker

I have used many online free optimization tools but only a few can be compared with Website SEO checker tools and presently you can do almost everything you desire completely free of charge with this tools

This online tools will not only allow you to check your websites but will help you perform the following task.

  • Allows you to check domain authority of any website in one click
  • Bulk trust flow and citation flow
  • Ability to check any domain age
  • Help you generate HTML/XML sitemap for your website
  • You can check and compare Alexa ranks of different websites in 2 seconds
  • It helps you determine how genuine your link profile is by showing the spam score of your website
With this online free tool, you can do lots more even without registering on their platform but I don't know how long such great tools can last for free.

Small SEO online Tools

Small SEO tools have a lot in common with the first SEO tools mentioned above as they relatively offer the same services 100% free.

I have been using Small SEO tools before I discovered other tools and if you don't know about their services or have not used them then you are missing out because they are not just offering SEO tools but something more which includes.

  • Plagiarism Checker
  • Article Rewriter
  • Grammar error fixing tools for excellent content writing
  • Word Counter and Spell Checker
  • Image to Text Converter and translations
  • keyword position checking tools
  • Allows you to check domain authority of any website in one click
  • Bulk trust flow and citation flow
  • Ability to check any domain age
  • Help you generate HTML/XML sitemap for your website

To be sincere Small SEO tools is one in a million tools that you hardly find for free but am glad they have been around for a while and no sign of turning their platform to a premium paid tools, at least for now.

Site Checker Pro On page SEO Tools

This On page SEO Tools might not offer the same features with other tools that I have mentioned above for free but it helps you scan your web pages and show you the areas that need improvement.

I know some free on-page SEO tools that only allows you to check your web pages for a certain period of time and then you will be asked to upgrade to their premium plan but site checker pro gives you unlimited access to analyze different web pages without any restrictions once you register free account with them or when you log in with your social profile.

If you are expecting to see Moz Pro SEO, Wordtracker or SEMrush tools then you might be disappointed but don't forget that those tools are not free to use but they are indisputably the best premium SEO Tools that Pro bloggers use to spy and outrank their competitors which you should go for if you have the money.

I have other tools that I regularly used to check my website which has lots of limitations but when it comes to a platform that offers real value for free than Website checker tools and Small SEO tools are currently leading the race while others follow.

Finally, if you think you know other free online SEO tools you wish to share or have some questions to ask, then feel free to join the conversation.

webmasters / How to make money online as a freelancer Upwork & Fiverr
« on: January 21, 2019, 05:33:12 PM »
Freelancing is no longer a new thing in Nigeria but personally, I spent all my time working for myself and not as a freelancer until I decided to check things out recently.

I wouldn’t be writing about online freelancing if I had not tried it myself because a true blogger tries different things and share his or her experience to those who need it and today I am going to share everything I know about freelancing as a Nigerian.

I have Upwork and Fiverr account where I find freelancers who can complete a certain task for me while working for others who need my services as well.

Getting started what you need as a freelancer



Before sharing my experience I assume you are here because you want to know how to make money online as a freelancer but to get started you need to acquire some skills and knowledge like.

  • Programming & web developing
  • Graphics designing
  • Digital marketing and search engine optimization (SEO)
  • Article writing and translation etc.

You can learn any of the above skills through online tutorials if you are willing to dedicate your time but I believe you can easily learn how to write articles so let proceed.

Note:

One big problem with article writing is that you might not be appreciated for your work no matter how hard you try because clients always want more but wish to pay less at the same time which makes it difficult.

Article writing will become harder for you when you are asked to write about something you don’t know anything about but gradually you will be able to research and produce high-quality articles on any topic and niche.

My experience as a freelancer

It started when I was going through Nairaland business and investment thread where I discovered a lot about freelancing but unfortunately, most of the guys who share the info about freelancing is only interested in making more money from newbie’s while some are kind enough to share everything for free.

When I decided to give it a shot, most of the things I heard were entirely different but now I know better. The profile I am making use of in Upwork and Fiverr were old account I open back in 2015 but I don’t know how to make use of it then or let just say that I was not interested to work as a freelancer.

To start my journey I learned that you need well convincing Gigs as we usually call it in Fiverr or a proposal in Upwork to attracted clients attention and I did all that.

Fiverr was the first I started working with and it took me two weeks before a client contacted me about my offer but overall it takes a lot of time to start making good money.

What about Upwork?

Am sure you might be asking some questions about Upwork platform to know which one to start with but relax and keep reading, I will tell you everything you need to know about Upwork once we are true with Fiverr.

Why it takes some time to make money through freelancing

Well, I have seen so many gurus claiming to help you start making money from the first day or from the first week which is still possible but to have consistent offers rolling in you need to have some patience.

Though, it’s all depends on your skills and what you can offer because some limited offers has unlimited freelancers ready to work so how then can you be considered a qualified candidate for any task since you are just new with little experience.

Challenges as an entry level freelancer

I faced many challenges as a new freelancer with little experience but I will tell you how to overcome it just the same way I handled my own situation but first let me show you few challenges that might be knocking on your door as a new freelancer.

Need samples of your previous work

If you create a new Gig in Fiverr about blog content writing and translation then you need to show your clients that you have what it takes to deliver a well researched 100% unique content by showing them your previous written content to check out.

Since you are just starting, what you need to do is to install Microsoft word on your system if you don’t have one already.
Take your time and do a good research on various topics and niches, write one or more articles each on health, Product review, SEO, digital marketing, finance, education, and social media promotion.

Save it and remember the location of the document because you will have to send it to your clients once they ask you for samples.

You need at least up to 10 completed offers with 5/5 client satisfactory rating

In Fiverr once you manage to complete some offers and acquire good rating then you are on your way to money because that is what clients use to determine how proficient you are by looking at your rating and client reviews about your completed offers
.
Being a Nigerian might not be favorable to you

Sincerely, you will really need to fight harder to succeed in Fiverr platform compared to someone from USA or India, I don’t know why but that’s how it is but some guys will open an account as a foreigner using a VPN to mask their IP but for me you need to be patient and have good samples to show them you can be more creative than others.

Your price will be lower than others

Since you are new to the platform with zero rating or review, you need to keep you offer attractive by reducing the price just to get your first job with 5/5 rating that will boost you ranking in Fiverr.

 Once your offer looks tempting and affordable, clients will not have any option than to test your capabilities and if you turned to be good then you have more tasks to complete which will probably give you good rating and reviews that will attract other client and that means more money for you.

My experience buying Gigs in Fiverr

I once used the platform as a buyer and not as a seller asking freelancers to complete some task for me but since then I have learnt few things in the process. Some Gigs doesn’t worth a cent and yet you will pay not less than $7 for a task simply because the offer sounds so good and attractive but in reality it’s meaningless.

Though, I must confess that Fiverr makes everything easier to find help through their platform paying less compared to other platforms.

My Upwork Experience

To me, I am having fun with Upwork services right now compared to Fiverr but I heard that upwork have tightened their platform and don’t accept new users easily but I don’t know if it’s through or not since I am using the account I opened since 2015.

Both platforms operate in their own different ways and the only similarity between them is that, they are both a platform created for online freelancers.

Fiverr only allows you to create an offer (Gig) and wait for clients to order for your services while Upwork allows you to find a task you can complete based on your skills and submit a proposal to the client explaining how you will be able to complete the task, attaching your previous work samples when required.

The most disappointing moment I had with Upwork was when a client asked me to write bulk articles for him at the rate of $1 per 1000 words article and I feel like slapping him.

How to write and submit attractive proposals

The first thing to do is to carefully read the description of the task to be able to know what the client needs and then cross check if it’s what you can do perfectly well.

Write a very good convincing proposal detailing the measures you will take to complete the task and how fast you are willing to complete the task and off cause keeping the price low is a good choice for a start.

To become a successful freelancer you must care more for the quality than the money because quality guarantees consistent income.

Conclusion

Freelancing is not as easy as you think but if you know what you are doing then you will make it but don't think you know it all, keep acquiring more knowledge that will help you in feature.

If you have the dream to become a freelancer then get started and don’t worry about being a professional because those who claim to be professionals started from somewhere just like you. Always be optimistic and patient because it’s never easy to make money online especially as a blogger or freelancer.

Finally, I will love to see your own opinion on this, kindly join the conversation, share your own experience or ask more questions and get the answer right in front of you.

webmasters / 2019 Most Popular & Cheapest Web hosting in Nigeria
« on: January 14, 2019, 03:12:42 PM »
Would you be interested to find out those reliable and affordable Nigerian based web hosting providers with best features and customer support that allows you to pay in Nigerian Naira?

If your answer is yes then you are just in the right place at the right time but before we proceed you must know that the cheapest is not always the best but being popular can be attributed to how good a web hosting is, in other words, it shows they have something valuable to offer or maybe they have a big pocket to market their brand in a special way to attract more customers who knows.

Finding a reliable good web hosting that offers you what you want at your desired price is not an easy task especially when you have not used any of them to know how good and reliable they are but I have used a few different web hosting providers since 2012 and I am here to guide you and explain certain things you need to know about web hosting.

Last time i wrote some related post you might be interested to check out 2018 Nigeria best web hosting, Local and Foreign hosting and 8 Cheapest web hosting providers in Nigeria (Pay in Naira) but we are in 2019 and a lot has changed that is why I hard to provide something fresh and current regarding to Nigerian web hosting providers.

You are going to learn:

  • Meaning of Webhosting and its uses
  • What to look out when searching for a reliable Webhosting
  • List of Webhosting that I have used and still using
  • Popular & Cheapest Web hosting in Nigeria

Now you know why we are here and if this content is not for you then you might be happy to check other great content here on our webmaster's category.

Meaning of Webhosting and its uses

This might not be important to many bloggers because they already know what a web hosting means and how it works but for those who are not familiar with the term web hosting still have the right to know what we are talking about and to make it simple a Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients, as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center.

Every website/blogs have a web hosting where all the data such as design, structure and all the content are being stored and made accessible for end users.

To create a website apart from other free platforms such as blogger and wordpress.com, you need a web hosting and domain name, while the web hosting stores and makes the necessary data accessible, the domain name serves as an identity.

Example

A domain name is just like your name, people call and recognize you by your name, when someone mentions your name you will react just the way a web hosting react when a domain name is typed on the URL address bar, it will connect, retrieve and preset the requested content, to make it more understandable xtremeloaded.com is the domain name of this website no other website in this world can bear the same name at the same time.

What to look out when searching for a reliable Webhosting

When it comes to web hosting our desire differs but still, there are more important features you should not ignore when looking for a good web hosting provider but yes for different people there is a different definition of being good but I will tell you what I value most and how I consider a good Webhosting.

Uptime & Stablity

How long can your web hosting server stay without clashing, how stable is your server and how fast does it respond to a request, these are the most important question to ask because I have used a Webhosting that used to clash every hour and comes up the next minute and yet they advertise 99% uptime guaranteed on their website.

Apart from uptime, you need your web property on a fast stable server because even a slow server can be detrimental to your search engine ranking.

Support (Customer care)

I left one of my favorite hosting provider in 2016 because they are not always available to assist me when I need them most and to use a Webhosting provider that doesn't have live chat support is a no go area for me, only email support will not be convenient for me because some issues require urgent attention.

Price & Value

In this case, you need to be sure of what you need, I hate to pay more for expensive hosting plans while you actually need a lesser plan that will cost less and still offer you the value and services you require.

To spend your money wisely you might need to evaluate your traffic and data to be able to know exactly how much bandwidth and disk space you need but to be on a safer side start with cheap plans and upgrades when the need arise.

Scalability & Features

Different web hosting offers different features and you need to dig deep to find the one that offers what you need and also allows you to increase your data storage space, allocated bandwidth size etc.

There are other things you might need to consider when looking for a web hosting but I will stop here for now since we have other things to discuss.

List of Webhosting that I have used and still using

Before listing most of the web hosting that Nigerians use to power their website I believe you will love to know those ones I have used and currently using right now.

Namecheap Hosting

If you are interested to know the web hosting that I am using then Namecheap is currently the one am using now and am having a great experience with them especially when it comes to their support, they are always available to help irrespective of the time or your location.

Their server is fast but I do have some occasional server error but overall I am very happy with them because they are affordable and offers real value for money.

Inmotion hosting

As I said earlier the cheapest is not always the best and if you ask me to tell you the best web hosting I have ever used I will boldly tell you  Inmotion Hosting, they are the only hosting I have used for more than 1 year without noticing any downtime and they are always available to assist me at any point in time.

I left them because their hosting is not affordable compared to Namecheap and I had a great offer that will help me reduce the hosting cost, by the way, if I don't test different hosting providers how can I tell you how good they are but if you are searching for the best web hosting that will give you peace of mind then try Inmotion hosting.

Web4africa

If you check well I don't discuss anything about web hosting without mentioning web4africa because that is where I started my journey, they are the first web hosting I used to power xtremeloaded.com back then in 2012 until I decided to move on.

I love them because their support was excellent and every other thing is good until they decide to make some negative changes that I cannot except but if your website visitor is manly Nigerians then you might have some good reason to use them because they have data centers in South African and Nigerian which means that Nigerian visitors will experience good speed compared to other visitors from other regions.

I intend to use other Webhosting providers to find out how they work in the future but for now, I only have Namecheap, Inmotion and web4affrica in my list.

Popular & Cheapest Web hosting in Nigeria

Am sure you have been waiting for this list but you don't need to wait any longer as am ready to show you the Most Popular & Cheapest Web hosting in Nigeria.

Dispense Errors occurs when an account is debited for a transaction while the amount of money involved is not received, it might seem as if the transaction is completed or that the transaction fails at the point of withdrawing from an ATM or while making payments via POS/Web but your account is debited without properly completing the transaction.
It's more painful when you have cash that you wanted to withdraw from ATM only to notice that your money has been debited without actually giving you the cash and maybe you don't even have another money to withdraw while rectifying the issue with the bank but the good news is that some bank can be quick in resolving the dispense errors while some will ask you to wait for between 2 - 5 business working days.

What to do when you are facing dispense error

From experience, the dispense error can automatically be reversed immediately without you knowing which means you might need to wait for 5 or 10 minutes before checking your account balance again but in some case, it takes some time and might require you to  Log and notify your bank about the dispense Errors.
