Cheap web hosting in Kenya

And so, my editor requested that I review the best 3 cheapest (not just cheap) but quality hosting services in Kenya.

And who am I not to oblige?

This article will help you if you have been scratching your head wondering which is the most cheap web hosting in Kenya and how much the cheapest web hosting packages cost.

Who am I?

My name is John, a long-time blogger and techie. I have been coding websites for companies and individuals for the last 5 years.

During this time, I have been privileged to host with all the biggest web hosting companies in Kenya including Sasa Host, Safaricom web hosting arm,  Host Poa,  Kenya web experts, and more.

I have also hosted with international giants like Site ground, Namecheap, and Bluehost.

In short, I know my stuff.

Well, let me halt the monologue and take you straight to the cheap web hosting in Kenya analysis.

Here are the most affordable web hosting packages for the Kenyan market (in no particular order)..

Cheap web hosting in Kenya: A review of the best three offers

1. True host Kenya review

True host is one of the best cheap (if not the cheapest) hosting companies in Kenya.

Unlike many budget hosting providers, their loading speeds and uptimes (99.99%) have thoroughly impressed me.

Indeed, I have migrated all my websites to Truehost cloud limited.

I also love the ever-available customer support lead by Simon (I have never met him but the guy is amazing when you have a question).

And they know how to welcome newbies…

Not only are you awarded a free SSL on registering for any of their packages but they also transfer your website from your former hosting if shifting from another host.

You just provide the logins and sit back!

Unsurprisingly, True host has been trusted by some of Kenya’s biggest websites including Bamburi cement.

They have servers in Kenya, Nigeria, and the US (for VPS hosting).

Let’s now go through their pricing:

Name of hosting package Features Pricing
Truehost silver hosting (Cheapest)

 

·   Unlimited Bandwidth

·   Free SSL Certificate

·   10 GB Disk Space

·   1 domain name

Shs.999
Gold Hosting (medium sites) ·   30 GB Disk Space

·   Free SSL Certificate

·   Unlimited domain names

 

Ksh.2499
Platinum Hosting (For massive websites) ·   Unlimited Disk Space

·   Free SSL Certificate

·   Unlimited domain names

 

Ksh.7499

There is much more plus the process of ordering is very straightforward. You can even use Whatsapp and my guy Simon will be all too happy to help.

Perhaps you could check out the complete details or contact True host here.

Then, if you’re lucky, you can have the price come down by as much as 70% if you have a True Host coupon code.

But shs.999 is quite cheap, isn’t it? By the way, they sell .co.ke domain names at just shs.570 (That’s pocket change).

2. Kenya Website Experts

Kenya Website Experts is another fairly inexpensive company offering cutting-edge shared webhosting plans.

I would recommend Kenya Website experts Linux web-hosting if you visualize rapid growth in traffic for your website.

Like True Host, you can have the geeks at the company migrate your website for free to your chosen hosting plan within a couple of hours.

I have hosted some of my international websites on their servers for several years and I have nothing but praise for the company.

The only issue is that some of the plans don’t permit additional domains.

Here is their cheapest plans.

Name of hosting package Features Pricing
Starter (Cheapest)

 

·         Bandwidth: 300 GB

·         Free SSL Certificate

·         30 GB Disk Space

·         300GB Bandwidth/ internet Traffic

 

Shs. 2,100/= Yr

Domain names starts at shs.499.00

3. Safaricom web hosting review

Some Kenyans think that Safaricom is super expensive in everything- bundles, sms, calls, and everything and they blame them for all their woes (ha ha)

But that’s not true when it comes to webhosting. As a matter of fact, Safaricom web hosting is one of the cheapest as far is cheap web hosting in Kenya is concerned.

And you know what?

Safaricom guarantees industry-standard uptimes, cute website templates (free), lightning fast servers, and many more.

One area they surely lose out to True host and Kenya website experts is on customer care- they sometimes take their sweet time before responding to queries.

In addition, most of their lowly priced packages have huge limitations. For instance, Lite hosting gives you just 50MB Disk Space.

Here is a summary of their cheapest plans..

Name of hosting package Features Pricing
Lite

 

·   50MB Disk Space Shs.1300 .ke domains & shs.999 for .com and .org domains
Bronze ·   2GB Disk Space Shs.3800 .ke domains & shs.3499 for .com and .org domains

 

Conclusion

These are my best three proposals if you’re looking for cheap web hosting in Kenya.

The good news is that they all allow you to upgrade to high-end packages without any extra charges once your website gains enough traction.

In terms of actual pricing, True host is the cheapest followed by Safaricom and finally Kenya website experts.
