If you are a long-term visitor, you will have noticed that GhanaWeb is always available. Other Ghanaian websites tend to go down for hours, days, or even weeks because of 'technical problems'. During the 2008 Elections other major Ghanaian websites frequently crashed or became terribly slow, whilst GhanaWeb stood its ground. What is our secret?
Our secret is managed hosting by pair Networks
Managed hosting means that the provider is available for 365 days per year, 24 hours per day to handle all technical tasks needed to keep your website online.
Over a period of 11 years there have been several incidents which could have shut down GhanaWeb permanently. Thanks to the experts of pair Networks this hasn't happened.
Just one example. Some years ago our webmaster deleted the entire website by mistake. It was a terrible human error which could have meant the end of GhanaWeb. Luckily we decided 11 years ago not to go for the lowest possible price but to pay a bit extra for quality. That was one of the best business decisions we have ever made.
In short, we recommend pair Networks.
