PhilmoreHost Review: Find Out Why They’re One of Nigeria’s Most Popular Hosts
PhilmoreHost is a Nigerian hosting and web services company. While it offers a range of hosting plans, the company also handles professional website development for local and international customers.
It describes itself as the cheapest and most reliable web hosting services in Nigeria. The company goes on to state that its services are no different than those offered by many new entrants to the market, and that it doesn’t offer any special plans that would make it stand out.
However, there is a bit more to it than that.
Services and Specializations
PhilmoreHost specializes in shared, Virtual Private Server (VPS), and reseller hosting plans. However, the company also offers dedicated servers for clients who need a bit more.
In addition to hosting, PhilmoreHost handles domain registration and offers web design and development services.
As far as hosting goes, PhilmoreHost offers five entry-level cPanel shared hosting plans, backed by three reseller shared hosting plans. It also offers basic and reseller plans based on Plesk.
In the VPS deparment, PhilmoreHost offers Linux- and Windows-based VPS hosting packages.
If you are in the market for a dedicated server, the company has three to choose from. All are based on Intel processors and run Linux, with Plesk or cPanel on the side.
Don’t be fooled by the fact that PhilmoreHost is headquartered in Africa. The company has a global reach, and uses three datacenters, a European facility located in Kent, Great Britain; a US datacenter in Phoenix, Arizona, and a facility Perth, Australia.
However, other than the geographical location of these facilities, PhilmoreHost does not offer a lot of specs or details.
Therefore, we took a closer look at some of the hosting plans in an effort to figure out what sort of hardware is employed. The company’s dedicated servers are based on Intel Xeon E5 dual-core server processors, as well as Intel Core i5 and Core i7 desktop processors (fourth generation Core parts at the time of writing).
All dedicated servers use Gigabit Ethernet ports.
