Which are the best Web Hosting companies for Kenyan bloggers and websites? It’s common knowledge that new bloggers are not aware of the best hosting companies for their websites. Here you will find all the facts concerning the cost of hosting your blog, cheapest web hosting companies and what determines the choice of a particular hosting company.

To begin with, in Kenya small blogs are hosted by Kenyan companies. Having had my fair share of experience, I came to conclusion that Kenya Website Experts is the best web hosting company in Kenya. Why say this? My blogs, before I migrated them to Bluehost and eventually Kinsta, were hosted at Kenya Website Experts. I only moved them to Kinsta because they were going viral and had to consume more resources than the Kenyan company was able to provide. But I would say I enjoyed their customer care, hospitality and the services they were offering.

For a new blog I would suggest you host at Kenya Website Experts.The cost for hosting is Ksh 2,100 per year for websites receiving up to 5,000 daily visitors,Ksh 4,100 per year for medium websites,Ksh 7,100 for websites receiving up to 10,000 daily visitors and Ksh 14,100 per year for websites receiving traffic of up to  25,000 daily traffic.

If your website is new, select the Ksh2, 100 plan then upgrade later when it starts receiving more than 4,000 daily visitors.

Kenya Website Experts also offers cloud hosting plans for heavy traffic websites. The cost ranges from Ksh Ksh13,100 to Ksh 25,000.These plans are meant for websites receiving 15,000 to 30,000 daily visitors. If your website has no images and receives 30,000 daily visitors you will spend Ksh 25,000 per year. If your website has several images and receives more than 30,000 daily visitors, you will need a dedicated Server or simply move to Kinsta, WPEnginge,iPage,Pagely or SiteGround.

If you have faced many problems with Kenyan web hosting companies and you want to try hosting your website elsewhere, I would suggest you move them to U.S web hosting companies. All my websites are currently hosted in the U.S and I haven’t had problems with the companies. I would like to reveal why U.S companies have dominated this business. Customer Service and reliable services place them top of the list among web hosting companies in the world.

If your site is small,I suggest you host with the following companies:

  • Bluehost
  • Namecheap
  • GoDaddy
  • 1&1
  • DreamHost

These companies have the best plans for small and medium websites. They also have plans for large websites that require more resources .The heavy traffic websites are hosted by Dedicated Servers. You will be required to spend between Ksh 400 to Ksh 1,500 to host your small website and medium website. For big websites, you will be required to spend up to Ksh15, 000 per month.

Websites with more than 20,000 daily visitors

If your website receives more than 20,000 daily visitors, that website is big. The best web hosting companies include:

  • Kinsta
  • iPage
  • Pagely
  • SiteGround

Kinsta tops the list of best web hosting companies for big websites. Their servers can sustain thousands of concurrent visitors, which translates to millions of visitors per day.Kinsta requires that you spend more than 10,000 per month, which is reasonable considering the money you will make from your website.

The reason why many big websites are migrating to Kinsta in droves is because websites hosted at the company loads extremely fast, you can try Venas News to see how fast it loads. They also guarantee 100 % uptime, implying your website will never go down no matter how many visitors it will receive. Their customer care is also excellent.

If you own an online shop website, you definitely require more resources. Kinsta,Pagely an iPage stand out,but I will recommend Kinsta.

For popular training institutions like Nairobi University, Mount Kenya University,KU and the rest,Kinsta is the best company to host your websites.
