OneNet Servers is an IaaS provider aimed at helping you to “Build your brand online”. They offer a range of services such as cloud solutions, cPanel hosting, and cyber security. The company serves lots of industries including eCommerce, Big Data, Gaming, and Start-Ups, and assist in growing and scaling sustainable businesses.
The founder of OneNet Servers, Akinola Muyiwa, was kind enough to provide more information about his company and the products and services on offer.
Back to OneNet Servers' Inception
Akinola initially started his company in 2015, treating it as more of a hobby than a business. He explained; “I’d started the company back in my final year at the university. This was as far back as 2015. It was more of a hobby then. Thereafter, I noticed there was a demand for web hosting services. So, I took it seriously in 2017. More so, this was further driven by my desire to help businesses become visible online. This desire has translated into one of our core values which is to help businesses automate at the cheapest cost with an amazing experience”.
Akinola went into further detail; “When I decided to take the company seriously, I had one goal: to build a platform that helps 10,000 SMEs across Nigeria and Africa to be visible online and give them a global competitive edge. I plan to achieve this by 2023. Also, there is a distrust for Nigeria-based web hosting companies. So, I challenged myself to have a company that positively shifts this distrust amongst Nigerians”.
How The Company Helps SMEs
As OneNet Servers has such as strong focus on SMEs, I was curious to find out exactly what the company has done for them. Akinola told me; “For some months now we’ve been running a series of events. These events were organized to help meet the needs of SMEs and developers who seek to grow their business and accelerate their careers. These events mean a lot to us because they not only tie into our values but also serve as a platform for young entrepreneurs and developers to be the best of themselves.
Over the years, we’ve learned, adapted, and kept innovating our business using competitors as a launchpad. This has helped us offer better customer service and offer hosting services that meet the needs of customers in the various market segments”.
Akinola continued; “Initially, we had issues with customers believing that we offer one of the best web hosting services. Afterwards, these customers have become loyal customers, some spanning to over 2 years and referring others to us”.
There are some excellent customer reviews displayed on the company’s website describing them as awesome, excellent, and superb! Additionally, OneNet Servers has an invaluable knowledge base where they thoroughly explain a number of topics that their customers may find tricky.
Looking At OneNet Servers' Best-Selling Solutions
Although OneNet Servers has plenty to offer customers in terms of online solutions, a couple of services outperform all the others. Akinola described what these are; “Our CPanel hosting plans offer one of the best shared hosting experiences for SMEs.
