A little brief history of nakroteck

The have an office at Lapaz in Accra.
Nakroteck web hosting packages and pricing
Now to what you have been waiting to hear, nakroteck has fairly cheap pricing and if you are in Ghana you benefit by paying for your hosting services in Cedis. This is good news for ghanaians as they don’t have to convert their money to US dollars to pay for hosting.
Let’s start with the basic packages nakroteck offers, shared hosting. If you are tight on budget or you just want to test their service i will advise to try nakroteck shared hosting plan.
Features of Nakroteck shared hosting plan
Nakroteck gives free .com domain to anyone who buys it’s shared hosting package, the shared hosting nakroteck offers are categorized into 4 plans.
First we have nakroteck basic plan that goes for 100 cedis per year that is approximately $19 per year. With nakroteck basic plan you get :
- A free domain for the first year
- 1 gig of storage
- 5 gig traffic bandwidth
- 5 email accounts
- A free letsencrypt ssl certificate to make your website more secure
The second shared hosting plan on our list is nakroteck Economic plan. With this plan you get more storage space space, more bandwidth and email hosting and a bigger price to play, the economic plan cost 152$ per year . Quickly let’s look at the features of nakroteck shared hosting Economic plan
- A free domain for your first year
- Up to 10 subdomains
- 15 gig of storage for your website, your website is hosted on SSD
- Upt to 10 emails
- 10 parked domains
The third shared hosting package on our list is the deluxe plan, this plan cost 182$ per year. Let’s look at the features of nakroteck deluxe plan
- A free domain for the first year
- You can add four additional domains
- You can add up to 40 subdomains
- You have 400 GIG bandwidth
- Up to 40 emails
- 40 parked domains
- You have 40 GIG of storage on ssd
The last nakroteck share hosting plan we will talk about is the platinum plan. The cost of the platinum plan is 212 cedis per year, now let’s check the plan’s features
- 1 free domain for the first year
- Unlimited domains
- Unlimited subdomains
- 100 GIG of storage on ssd
- Unlimited email accounts
- Unlimited parked domains
- Unlimited traffic
Clearly the platinum plan has more features that the basic, economic and the deluxe plans. What nakroteck failed to let us know is the ram available. Having unlimited traffic is meaningless is the ram is small.
From my personal experience if you mean business don’t go for the basic plan, the basic plans are for smaller website with very few traffic daily. The moment you start receiving huge traffic your website will eventually go down.
Aside the shared hosting offered by nakroteck there other plans such as vps, dedicated and cloud hosting.
Nakroteck VPS hosting
Vps is ideal for high traffic website, if you realize your website keeps going down when using shared hosting then you know its time to move to the vps hosting.
VPS (virtual private server) gives you more room for expansion with a dedicate server, bigger bandwidth and lots of storage space. One advantage of vps is having a bigger ram , with vps you are able to know the size of your ram unlike shared hosting.
People often get confused with the difference between vps and dedicated hosting, one big difference between vps and dedicated hosting is with dedicated hosting you actually own the server but with vps hosting you own a piece of the server and your website completely isolated from the other users of the server.
Nakroteck offers two kinds of vps packages, managed vps hosting and cloud vps package.
Nakroteck managed vps package
Nakroteck offers three managed vps packages, unfortunately the vps package prices are in dollars. Below are the packages and prices.
|VPS 2016 SSD1||VPS 2016 SSD2||VPS 2016 SSD3|
|A free domain for 1 year||A free domain for 1 year||A free domain for 1 year|
|Plesk Onyx||Plesk Onyx||Plesk Onyx|
|Upto 10 domains addon||Upto 10 domains addon||Upto 10 domains addon|
|10 GIG ssd storage||10 GIG ssd storage||10 GIG ssd storage|
|2.4 GHz Xeon E5v3||2.4 GHz Xeon E5v3||2.4 GHz Xeon E5v3|
Choosing a local web hosting company may be good for your business or personal project if the provider is trusted. To some extent nakroteck is trusted, it has big website like ghbase.com on its server. I will recommend nakroteck if you are starting out and on a tight server, if you are hosting a web app or an app your best bet will be google cloud or amazon aws.
