Cost of starting a blog in Kenya 2023 for students


As a student, you can start a blog for Ksh 5,000 to Ksh 10,000 only. The cost vary depending on the costs of web hosting, web design and domain name. It takes 1-3 days for one to create a blog in Kenya.

Here we will not only tell you how much you’ll spend on creating a blog but also how to earn from your blog.

To create a blog, first buy a domain name, then web hosting package and later look for a web designer. There are many web designers online and web hosting providers.

The cost of domain name at Hostpinnacle is Ksh 999 per year and the cost of web hosting is Ksh 2,999 per year as well. I recommend Hostpinnacle because it’s cheap and reliable. To buy a domain name and web hosting space cheaply,click here to visit Hostpinnacle website
