African Based Hosting
Poly Tek Afrik is a nice full services web company based in Africa. They are clearly targeting the rapidly growing African community, which is getting online at a fairly rapid pace. They offer web hosting services, web design, SEO, IT, Podcast streaming and many other services. This makes them a great option for any individual or company that is looking to consolidate multiple services into one company.
Their site is in French by default, which is fairly common for African sites in many regions. They do not have a way to translate to English by default.
Uptime & reliability
Limited Information available
Poly Tek Afrik does not provide an uptime guarantee that I could find. They also don't provide details on the exact type of hardware they use or information about their data center. This makes it very difficult to determine how reliable their services are. In addition, when I looked for customers who have been with them for a while I couldn't find any reviews. This is likely because they would have been written in French or another language. While there is no reason to think that you'll have trouble, it would be nice if they provided some additional information.
Plenty of Hosting Features
With all their hosting packages you will get a variety of good features. First, a domain name is included with all their hosting packages so that is quite nice. With the shared hosting you get 3 gigs, 5 gigs or 10 gigs of disk space depending on the level of hosting you choose. All their shared hosting is done on a Linux system so if you want Windows you may not want this company. You are limited to 2 gigs, 3 gigs or 4 gigs of traffic for shared hosting, which is quite low.
When you go to their semi-dedicated server page they don't have any information available. It is not immediately clear whether they are no longer offering this option or you just need to contact them for a custom quote. Their support team did not immediately respond to my request for information.
Dedicated servers are available in four packages. Entry level gets you 130 gigs of disk space and the highest level option gives you 500 gigs. All of them are unlimited bandwidth. They don't tell you how much memory is in the dedicated servers, which is odd.
Limited Support Information
I couldn't find information specifically about the support teams they offer. You can get in touch with them through several phone numbers, but that is all. They likely provide you with the tech support information only after you've signed up for their services. They don't have a knowledge base to help with self-help either.
The pricing is slightly higher than what you might expect, but not by much. It is priced in Francs so keep that in mind. For what you're getting some people may expect a little more, but really it is not to much beyond what other companies are charging.
Decent Hosting with Some Concerns
There are definitely some concerns about working with this company. That being said, however, they do seem to be one of the better established hosting providers in Africa and they have several other nice services so it might be a good option if you are looking for services in this area.
