Cheap Web Hosting Companies in Kenya

If you have a new blog in Kenya, you definitely want to be hosted by a cheap web hosting company. Based in our experience, we shall provide you with the most useful information that would ensure you have a successful blogging career.

Initially, my website, Venas News was hosted by one of the best web hosting companies in Kenya, Kenya Web Experts.A can attest that the company has great customer care and cheap hosting plans. I moved my site to Pagely and finally to Kinsta because the traffic became too much for Kenya Web Experts. But I can say this is one of the most reliable web hosting companies in Kenya.

Before I landed at Kenya Web Experts, I tried few hosting companies,EAC Directory and Truehost,but they couldn’t match the services I received at Kenya Web Experts.

Now, what motivates you into hosting your website at a specific company. Well, if you are a blogger or you have a website you want to host, make sure you have this in mind.

  1. Malware
  2. Customer service
  3. Pricing
  4. Location

The first and most important factor is malware. If your website is infected with malware, you will pay up to $100 for the malware removal. Kenya Web Experts is one of the few companies where you can host your website and never hear of malware/virus infection.

The second point involves pricing. If you have a blog that receives less than 5,000 visitors per day, you will definitely choose the shared hosting plan. The cheapest plan costs Ksh2,100  while the most expensive costs Ksh 14,100 per year, and have the following features

30 GB Web Hosting @ KES 2,100/= Yr

40 GB Web Hosting @ KES 4,100/= Yr

50 GB Web Hosting @ KES 7,100/= Yr

∞ GB Web Hosting @ KES 14,100/= Yr

If you have a website that receives more than 5,000 daily visitors,you will be advised to buy Cloud plan. Cloud hosting is based on the most innovative cloud computing technologies that allow unlimited number of machines to act as one system. Other hosting solutions (shared hosting or dedicated servers) depend on one machine only, while cloud hosting security is guaranteed by many servers. The cloud technology allows easy integration of extra resources, such as space or RAM, and thus enables website growth.

Cloud plans start from Ksh 13,100 to Ksh 25,100 per year.

If you have a website that gets monthly traffic between 100,000 to 500, 000, cloud web hosting plans are the ones to choose.

After looking at all the web hosting companies in Kenya, I picked Kenya Web Expert as the best and cheapest company to host your website. But if you need something fancy, you can host your website at Safaricom, which I won’t recommend particularly for political blogs.

If you believe your website is controversial, the best place to host it is in the U.S, and from my own experience, I suggest you host in any of the following companies:

  1. GoDaddy
  2. Bluehost
  3. Namecheap

These are the giant web hosting companies that host almost all the websites in the entire world.They have very attractive features,more attractive than what Kenyan companies offer.

If your website receives more than 15,000 daily page views and is using WordPress Content Management System, GoDaddy,Namecheap and Bluehost may not be the best options. With this amount of traffic,I suggest you move to WordPress Managed web hosting companies. The best companies to host your sites include:

  1. Pagely
  2. Cloudways
  3. Amazon
  4. Kinsta

These are the four companies that can host websites receiving thousands to millions of visitors per day.
