Why host with Niabusiness in 2019

Initial planning

  • the keywords/niche you want to target
  • what your site is going to be about and
  • what you expect to get out of it

Then we will also talk about the kind of content you should create and have published on your site when it is launched.

This is usually content that describe what you do as a business, individual or organisation – published on the homepage or about us page.

Niabusiness can also help you decide how many pages and blog posts to publish initially.

Shared hosting plans

As mentioned above Niabusiness offers 3 plans.

It is cheap to get started with any one of them especially the Starter plan which costs KSh 6000 per year.

cPanel dashboard

To manage your site, each hosting plan comes with cPanel.

Within the cPanel dashboard you can manage your email accounts, databases, logs, backups and content you upload to your site.

Softaculous installer

Through the installer, you can choose any number of scripts to power your blog or website.

There are free scripts to run blogs, portals, wiki sites, auction sites and more.

Choose the one you need.

Niabusiness will install it for you.

Domain registration

Niabusiness can help you with domain registration if you want to.

Most domain registrars charge Kenya Shillings 1000 per year for a domain name with the most popular extensions.

With Niabusiness Hosting, you only pay the cost of any of the shared plans (linked to above) to get your .com, .co.ke, .net or .org domain registered for one year.

WordPress installation

If you want everything handled for you (when it comes to installation), Niabusiness will install the self-hosted version of WordPress, install a WordPress theme, the necessary WordPress plugins and then configure theme.

Set up your email list

Niabusiness.com will create a free MailChimp account for you.

You can use this to manage your email subscriber data – and to send emails to them.

MailMunch can also be added to your WordPress blog/website to capture emails from popups and sign up forms in blog posts and your site’s sidebar areas.

Support

NOTE: When you need help with your blog/website, use the contact form here to get in touch.

Accountability with your content calendar / promotion plan

Depending on how much content you are able to produce in a week or month, you can ask Niabusiness to check up on you to see if there is any new content you want added to your site.

Adding new blog posts and pages to your WordPress site is something you can do yourself but if you are not comfortable doing that yourself, you can send articles (pages/posts) you have written to Niabusiness via email (as Microsoft Word documents)  and the new content will be added to your site.

This applies to images you want added to your website as well.

Installing sharing buttons on pages and posts

To help with content sharing, Niabusiness will install a plugin to help your readers/customers/clients share content published on your blog/website.

The buttons will help you and your blog visitors share the content you create to different social networking site and messaging apps.

Niabusiness will also install Jetpack to auto-share blog posts to your social networking sites (Facebook, Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn) whenever new posts are added to your site.

Apart from that, Niabusiness will provide you with different tips to grow your existing site in 2019 and beyond.

This will be done via email, phone calls, live chat and through the various blog posts published to the site – on blogging, content marketing, and online business.

WordPress only hosting in Kenya for blogs and websites at Niabusiness.com

To make things simpler, faster and efficient, Niabusiness.com Web Hosting Kenya only offers clients the WordPress script. That is the script that will power your site once we allocate you server space and get you the domain name you want.

Of course, you are free to use any other script apart from WordPress, to power your website or blog. For example Joomla, OpenCart, Magento, Drupal and others.

Is there a good reason for this – why Niabusiness.com uses WordPress self-hosted script to build blogs and websites for its clients in Kenya?

Yes, there is. WordPress, the self-hosted version, makes it easy for individuals, organizations, institutions and businesses in Kenya to get online, publish content, manage their sites and connect with others easily.

Easily doesn’t mean that there’s no work involved. In fact it can take a lot of effort to build a great blog or website that attracts the right kind of traffic.

When you pay for web hosting, whether a domain name is included in that or not, most web hosting companies let you upload files to your site by yourself.Web hosting in Kenya for blogs and websites - costs, packages and benefits

A lot of times you are also to install the script to power your site by yourself.

Why?

Because it saves them time and allows them to focus on other things like acquiring and tending to new customers; and two because it is assumed that setting up everything is easy?

Is it, really?

That depends on the person you ask.

But since the installation is a ‘one time thing’ many clients are glad to work with someone who does this for them… adding the right plugins and configuring everything.

selecting and registering a domain name, choosing a hosting package with enough disk quota and bandwidth, building your new site and promoting it.

Some people think that once their site is set up, everything is, and will be, just fine.

They forget about their new site, end up frustrated while trying to fix fatal errors on their sites and sometimes even blame their hosting provider for unreliable service when they are the ones at fault.

We will seek details about what you want, so that you can get direction on how to make your site a success.

The good thing with this is that it saves you a lot of time.

How much does the WordPress hosting service cost: prices of Niabusiness hosting plans in Kenyan Shillings?

You can see the costs of all our hosting packages here. We love to work with clients who see their blogs, websites as investments.

These are not people who just settle for cheap, throw a site together and leave it to wither.

Most people don’t realize that sometimes cheap hosting cost way more.

How? Time.

How many consider the time they’ll be spending on different aspects of their site? Very few.

Our hosting service saves you time and keeps the frustration most site owners suffer far away – from you.

Some of the things most web hosting companies leave you to take care of on your own are handled for you when you host with us.

This leaves you with more time to focus on building connections online, getting more traffic, working on your site’s conversions, creating more content for your blog, getting more email subscribers among other things.

The amount you pay for the hosting package of your choice isn’t steep. It is affordable – and for what it gets you, paying only that should be viewed as a good investment on your part.

It is all about looking much further down the road, to pay more now rather than paying even a bigger figure a few weeks or months to come.

The amount  gets you server space and a domain name for your site (with top level domain extensions .com, .net, .org or .biz). You can read more about getting a domain name with the extensions .co.ke, .co, .or.ke, .me, .sc.ke, .ac.ke, .name, .info.ke, .mobi.ke, .ne.ke, .go.ke, .co.ug, .ac.ug .or.ug, here.
