Web hosting in Kenya for blogs and websites – costs, packages and benefits

If you are looking for a web hosting company in Kenya, or a business that offers such a service, for your new or existing blog or website, read on below to learn more about what Niabusiness Hosting offers its clients.

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.

Learn more about what goes into building a website in our FAQ page here.

Here is what you get when you choose Niabusiness hosting service to create your blog or start your website in Kenya

Whether you are an individual who needs a personal blog, a business, a not-for-profit organization, a foundation, an institution of learning, a leader, a freelancer, a company, a partnership, a firm, an entrepreneur, an author or affiliate marketer …

1. You get a clear direction, from us, on what steps to take right from the beginning

We understand the power a blog or website gets its owner – and the very things one needs to do to get this power and use it for their good and the good of those who come to their sites.

We will help you decide what to publish on your site, how to organize the content you add to your site, when to launch your site, how to promote it and this: how to build a site focusing mainly on what you want it to do without complicating things.

2. We will install WordPress and set up your website

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.

Niabusiness Hosting Kenya sets up your WordPress site for you. During this process, you are also welcome to share your thoughts and suggestions.

If you know your suggestions will result in the kind of site that you want, or better, feel free to share them with us.

3. Niabusiness hosting helps you focus on what matters right from –

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.

If you are a person who is really interested and willing to work very hard to build a successful blog or website in Kenya, we’ll do our best to help.

4. We will help you tighten the security of your site

Sites are getting hacked every hour, every single day.

Our hosting service will continually keep an eye on things and work together with you to improve your site’s security.

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.

The best web hosting companies in Kenya: 7 things to consider before paying your money to any of them

Kenya is blessed with many web hosting companies that have made it easier for individuals and businesses to register domain names, get hosting and be easily found on the internet.

And if you want to start your own website or blog, but wondering how to go about choosing the right hosting provider no matter if they call themselves top or best, read on.

Here are a few things you should consider:

1. What do you need when it comes to paying for a hosting package, domain name and design

It is always a good idea to know what you want. How much money are you willing to pay for web design and web hosting? Do you want to register a domain name with a .co.ke, .com, .net, .ac.ke, .me, or .or.ke extension? What features do you want on your website or blog? Where do you see your site one year from now?

Being clear about what you need helps you make the right decisions when you go comparing prices, packages and services offered by various web hosting companies in Kenya.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. You can always send the various companies e-mails and get replies in less than twenty four hours. It might also be a good idea to visit their ‘frequently asked questions’ sections of their websites.

If you prefer making phone calls, don’t hesitate. Get the numbers from their website and let them help you make the right decisions right from the start.

A site can cost as little as one thousand Kenyan shillings or as much as several thousands of shillings or even more. I believe you won’t be going for a really expensive site though. You’ll probably start from down somewhere and upgrade, later, to a package that costs a few thousands more depending on your hosting, functionality, security and design needs.

Don’t pay too little for a slow server if you can manage to pay more for a more efficient, reliable and fast server provided by a reliable host.

2. A look at a hosting company’s testimonials page

Yep, you have to go a step further to check the different persons a company is doing business with. Do you want to be under the same wings with some of the clients? Does the page (and the testimonials in it) sound genuine?

Go a step further by contacting some of the clients to ask them about their experiences with the web hosting company. Some will always reply and offer some useful suggestions. Some hosting companies don’t allow this though. Reason? It may be against their privacy policy.

Visit the various sites managed by the various hosts and see if that can help you in making the right decisions regarding your own domain and hosting needs.

3. How much support you will need from the hosting company you pay your money to

There are people who are able to build their sites from scratch. You might be one of them. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to maintain and manage their sites. Some are ready to learn new things to help them become better webmasters but some don’t have the time or passion to learn these things.

If you’ll be the person who’ll be e-mailing their web host even when a little error occurs on your site, be ready to have the courage to be careful when clicking buttons and links on your cPanel (control panel) and your site’s Content Management System dashboard.

Be ready to pay more if you’ll need more support and start researching and learning more about websites because this will help you someday when you are stuck.

If you want someone to help you manage your site apart from your hosting company, get someone you can trust, pay them but don’t let them fill their pockets with money they don’t deserve. When you (suppose you host your blog or website with us) need help with your blog or website, you can get in touch with us any time for assistance. Click here to see what our hosting clients get.

4. How much effort are you willing to put on your blog or website to make it a success?

Thousands of persons register new sites every hour…and you’ll be joining them soon. But what will you do after that? Will you just let your site collect dust and scare away people a few months down the road? Will you be the person who’ll be messing their site every two weeks?

Will you get tired when the excitement of owning a new blog or website suddenly fades?

Most people never realize the huge responsibilities that come with owning a website. So be prepared. Start working on your site even before it is registered by writing a blog mission, creating enough content and learning different ways to make it a success.

Don’t be swayed with the make money online content. Know what you want and don’t let the make money articles lock you away from your long term goals and beliefs. There is a lot of competition out there and it is better if you start thinking about ways to become an effective blogger even before you pay for a new site.

5. Think about what your website will do (and the best platform to make your work much easier)

There are several scripts to power sites. There are content management systems like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal among others. There are scripts to help you do almost anything, from building an online shop, a forum, an auction site etc.

Get the one that works best for you. You might want to check: Why I chose WordPress to power my blog in this ebook. Also remember to seek your host’s recommendations.

6. Are you prepared for the arrival of the new site

Will you be ready to do what you planned to do when the site is finally registered or will you just start procrastinating? Will you be able to stop your new site from piling more pressure on you? What will you do when you start sleeping fewer hours?

7. What kind of people you want to attract to your website or blog?

Are you selling something and want a particular group to listen to what you have to say? Have you researched more about that market? If yes, go and research some more. If no, it is time you did some research.

If you want someone to help you start a blog or website powered by the popular WordPress script we are here for you. Click here to get started (read more about you get as a client before you commit any of your money).
