List of Best web Hosting companies in Kenya for small business, blogs, eCommerce, and business portals.
I have been around the blogging industry for about 6 years and over the years i have learnt a lot on what works and what does not work in-terms of choosing the best domain registration and web hosting company.
Some of the factors that you should consider before you choose your web hosting company in Kenya include: Disk-space offered, number of visitors per month (if they offer), Monthly Bandwidth, Virtual Memory Usage space, Physical Memory Usage space, and inodes. Do not be fooled with prices and offers that you see displayed on hosting companies websites. The cheaper a hosting company claims to be the higher the chances that it has hidden charges.
Bluehost is one of the best webhosting websites when it comes load speed, uptime and support. We host several websites on bluehost and that is why re recommend it to anyone who wants ti start blogging. It offers free ssls, backup and one click wordpress installation. It accepts payment through paypal and credit card.
If you have been running your blog on free WordPress.com and want to transition to self hosted then this will be your best choice as you will not have to struggle with migration. Pricing starts at $4 (Ksh. 400) per month
Their web hosting and domain registration services are among the cheapest. The only issue i have with safaricom is that they provide a very small disk space. It might be your best choice if you want to run a blog with low traffic or not using a lot of images. Additional features include;
- Customers have their websites/blogs and mail hosted.
- Payment is made annually
- Minimum subscription period is 1 year
- Provide customers with the ability to provision email accounts for their employees online.
NOTE: Safaricom hosting is not recommended anymore. There have been a lot of complains about their services and specifically database related problems.
Kenya Web Experts have been around for quite along time. We have used them to host some of our client’s websites. It is a good alternative of sasahost. Other services they offer include;
- Reseller Web Hosting
- Unmanaged VPS Servers
- Managed Dedicated Servers
- Ecommerce web Design
- Web Design Services
- Reseller Domain Names

- SSL Certificates
EAC Directory. is one of the best web hosting companies in Kenya if you need to install many software in your website. Its hosting prices for domains ending with com, .biz,.org, .net, and .info is KSh 1160
