Qservers Review: Pros & Cons
Looking at the strength and weakness for better decison is one of the major reasons of this Qservers review and what to note is the fact that having a good web hosting service is essential if a business wants to retain and enhance their online presences.
It is this sort of presence that would breed familiarity of their brand as well as lead to active selling.
Web hosting services may be widespread, but they need a lot of features to make them really stand out. For instance, they need an excellent method of customer service, a certain amount of flexibility, and several package deals to choose from.
We’ll discuss the pros and cons of this service below so that one can be clearer about whether to go for Qservers or not
Pros of Qservers
1. Strong Uptime of 99.99%
If there is anything i should focus first in this Qservers review is the uptime because, when it comes to uptime performance no hosting provider will be around for long if they fail in this crucial measure.
Qservers have been around for over a decade now and have invested heavily in technology to consistently offer not only a reliable service but also a speedy one.
I decide to conduct uptime monitoring to keep a close watch on Qservers network integrity
The result: it return a 100% uptime over the period of 10 weeks as shown below (to be updates from time to time )
Their average uptime of 99.99% over the years is significantly higher than many of the other web hosts, inshort, Qservers are so confident in their uptime delivery that they offer free credit on downtime below 99.9%.
2. High Speed & Impressive Server response
Research has proven that a large percentage of website users will abandon a website or a webpage within 3-5 seconds if it hasn’t loaded, so we felt the need to test Qservers loading speed.
I decide to use a Qservers powered website since its website might have been otptimized alreay.
The result was impressive, the home page loaded in less than 3s and the server response was quite impressive as well.

3. Control Panel
These days it’s common for most high quality hosting providers to include the ever-reliable cPanel interface for back end administration, and the good news is that Qservers is no exception. The well-structured design makes it incredibly easy for webmasters to create and run their websites.
Utilizing Qservers ‘s myriad of cPanel features, building and maintaining a site is a snap.
Qservers cPanel comes with extensive list of tools that will assist webmasters and alike to create their sites and indeed improve on them. Content Management Systems such as Joomla and Drupal are on offer. Of course WordPress, is also available too. Forum software such as phpBB, and SMF are all part of the package plus so much more to expect from their rich cPanel. Above all, it is user friendly
In a nutshell, Qservers cPanel is:
- Easy to use, friendly interface
- Website building tools included
- Create new email accounts easily
- Easily create and manage databases
4. Reliable Customer Support & Knowledge base
At Qservers, customer support is a key focus and this is clearly demonstrated by way of the sheer number of support options on offer.
Online, there is a Help Center and Ticketing System. Email is an option as is phone and chat help, which is available 24/7.
The teams of support staff are trained thoroughly to ensure they’re fully equipped to resolve any difficulties customers are experiencing. You can even expect your call to be answered within approximately a minute.
My test of Qservers customer support was impressive and there is a huge knowledge base for sorting out most problems. Everything from setup to troubleshooting is included, leaving support reserved for rare problems.
5. Cheap, Inexpensive Hosting
Whether you’re a first-time website owner or a web veteran, Qservers’s hosting services have package for you. With Shared hosting starting at 3,500/year to eCommerce web hosting, VPS and Dedicated server at affordable price.
Qservers is one of the top web hosting company in Nigeria that offer cheap and reliable web hosting solutions
6. Ease of use
On the whole, I’ve got nothing but good things to say about Qservers, when it comes to their user-friendliness. From sign-up to being ready to launch your first website takes no more than a couple of minutes following a straight-forward process that involves nothing more complicated than choosing a domain name, entering some personal information and paying via either credit/debit card, bank transfer or a number of other options.
Meanwhile, I found the user-interface to be highly intuitive, with everything neatly categorized in a series of drop-down menus from your dashboard, and the majority of tools and features easily accessible through cPanel.
7. Free SSL Certificate
SSL is a vital component of a successful online business. At the front end, this is the tool responsible for changing the HTTP in front of your website address into a HTTPS with the green padlock icon, but there’s an awful lot more to it than that.
Behind the scenes, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology provides a secure, encrypted link between a user’s web browser and the server hosting your website. This means that when private customer data such as their financial information is collected on your website, it passes to the server in such a way that it can only be read by the intended recipient, and isn’t susceptible to hacking attacks or other security vulnerabilities.
IF you take the safety of your customers seriously (and I really hope you do!) then SSL should be critical to your online business.
Qservers offer free SSL (using Let’s Encrypt ) on all shared web hosting package and i hope you would not like to miss that.
Cons of Qservers
1. No data backup
Qservers does not support files or data backup, you have to do that on your own.
2. Refund policy is limited to some method of payment and they can decide not to pay at all
The following methods of payments are non-refundable (Bank Wire Transfers, InterSwitch Debit Cards, Cheque’s), and if at all, they want to refunds, it will be posted as credit to the hosting account
3. The use of more than 50,000 inodes on any shared account may potentially result in suspension.
4. No support for Resellers hosting

Qservers eCommerce Web Hosting
One of the reasons I love Qservers eCommerce hosting is that they come automatically equipped to cater for small and medium-sized eCommerce stores.
Getting your first web store up and running is often an expensive business. Many providers offer little or no e-commerce functionality in their starter plans, and you’ll often have to fork out for a high-end specialist plan before you can do anything useful.
Qservers is a rare exception where even the most basic hosting plan gives you more than enough to get started. However, they have a dedicated web hosting plan that cater for those who want to build their business online.
To make it even easier, Qserver partnered with Interswitch to provide their customers with bundled e-commerce packages. These packages are designed to get your web store online, and start receiving payments, using the Quickteller payment gateway – powered by Interswitch.
Their starter plan (E-1) starts at 25,000/yr, this can really get you going and ofcourse, you can scale up as your store grows. Interesting to know, upgrade is free.
Qservers VPS Hosting
If you’re in need of a hosting plan that gives your website the flexibility of a dedicated server, but at a fraction of the price, a virtual private server (VPS) could be just what you’re looking for.
With Qservers VPS plan, you can install nearly any type of software on the system, and configure it in any way you’d like. VPS resources such as CPU, memory, hard disk space and bandwidth can be clearly defined and allocated to your virtual server.

The dedicated hosting options available from this company hold their own in comparison to the Web’s other top hosts, and the cost of Qservers ’s packages are right on par with the rest, even cheaper.
There’s nothing especially noteworthy about this package, but if you have Medium-sized businesses or Large businesses, Websites with heavy traffic, then a dedicated server on Qservers is certainly worthy of consideration.
