List of Best web hosting companies in Kenya for small businesses, blogs, eCommerce, and business portals.
I have been around the blogging industry since 2011 (10 years) and over the years I have learned a lot about 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, Database files, inodes., etc.
Do not be fooled by 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 to page load speed, uptime, and support. We host several websites on Bluehost and that is why we recommend it to anyone who wants to start blogging. It offers free SSL, backup, and one-click WordPress installation. It accepts payment through Paypal and credit cards.
WordPress recommends Bluehost as the 1 choice of web hosting.
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
Kenyayote.com started hosting on Sasahost before we migrated to Bluehost. Sasahost is perhaps the most reliable web hosting company in Kenya for running a small personal blog.
The reason why we migrated to Bluehost is that Sasahost is so expensive for blogs with high traffic.
Sasahost offices are located in Uphill, Nairobi.
Their web hosting and domain registration services are among the cheapest. The only issue I have with Safaricom is that the disk space they provide is too small. It might be your best choice if you want to run a blog with low traffic. 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 complaints about their services and specifically database-related problems.
Kenya Web Experts have been around for quite a long time. We have used them to host some of our client’s websites. It is the best alternative to Sasahost. Other services they offer include;
- Reseller Web Hosting
- Unmanaged VPS Servers
- Managed Dedicated Servers
- Ecommerce web Design
- Web Design Services
- Reseller Domain Names
- ASP .NET Web Hosting
- SSL Certificates
EAC Directory. is one of the best web hosting companies in Kenya for software hosting. Its hosting prices for domains ending with com, .biz,.org, .net, and .info is KSh 1160
