Finding web hosting in Kenya took me more than days. I should say it took me weeks. I started off with some local providers like Africa online and Kenya web. But soon found that the Bandwidth I required was not provided. I also came to know that some of my friends and clients in America were not able to see my website due to the Bandwidth limits. After a lot of procrastination, I came to the conclusion that I should use a provider who is global and not a local provider. At the end of the day, it does not matter where I host my website as long as everyone around can access it.
So what’s all about the Web hosting in Kenya which makes it so bad?
- Poor infrastructure.
- Very bad customer service
- Poor Turn-Around time
- Google Hardly recognizes my website.
That was enough to tell me that I had to move forward with a decent web hosting provider. But who can give me decent hosting for a limited budget? I had to pick some Funny Indian company that would probably rip my money off and not provides anything.
I tried a few, some went off the Roof. It was worse than that of Kenya. It was nearly when I gave up that I found a decent web hosting company. The rates they gave were quite decent and payment was accepted through credit cards. The service was excellent. And for a money-back guarantee, I was taking the risk of not losing anything at all.
It worked at last. Today, Kenyan Hosting companies charge a bomb of money for hosting and I get it at a fraction of the amount. 99% uptime and much more than anything the Kenyan local company can provide. So why go for a web hosting company in Kenya. Shoot out for someone who will charge you lesser and will of course be worth your while and money.
