Bluehost, Hostgator,Namecheap and Godaddy are far the best web hosting companies in the world.There is numerous advantages of hosting your websites with those companies over Kenyan companies.
If you own a political blog, it’s wise to host it either in UK, USA or German. The main advantage of this is that the companies have extra features to provide security by hiding the identity of the website owner. In case you are unfairly targeted, the pray will not be able to trace you. What about Kenya. You will of course be told that that security feature exists but if they are compelled to reveal your identity, they can do so, thus risking your sacred life. They can even share your email conversations and passwords.
Another motivating factor about web hosting companies based in USA, UK and German is that they have flexible packages. You can decide to choose the web hosting package with the least amount if your blog is not receiving a lot of traffic. Usually, blogs with less than 8,000 page views per day require a budget of less than Ksh 5,000 per year. What about Kenya? Here you will wake up one morning and find the following message, without warning, “account Suspended”, or “resource limit reached”. The message appears even if your website receives less than 1,000 visitors per day. The USA, UK and German webhosting companies promise more than 99 % up time, which is 100 % true.
When you approach your local web hosting company, you are told to upgrade to a dedicated server. Imagine you are receiving 3,000 daily visitors, making not more than Ksh10,000 per month and you are told to migrate to a dedicate server where you pay Ksh15,000 per month. Is this not trying to finish you!
The best thing about Hostgator, Namecheap, Godaddy and Bluehost is that even if you are receiving 30,000 daily visitors, your budget cannot exceed Ksh2, 000 per month, which is affordable. The best among this is Bluehost, where almost all viral blogs are hosted.
Now, I would like you to open Bluehost website and try to have a live chat with a representative, you will notice that those people respond immediately,anf as you chat and raise your issue, they resolve it there and then. The USA, UK and German companies have very efficient customer care.
If you have a new blog and you believe it go viral one day, it’s better to host it with Hostgator, Namecheap, Godaddy or Bluehost.
