The Bronze Plan is the one with a free offer and it comes with the following features:
- Traffic of up to 500 per month
- One-month free hosting offer
- Hosting for one website only
- 1GB Cloud Storage capacity
- 1GB Bandwidth per month

I don’t see why you will not choose the free plan when your domain name is new. After the offer expires, upgrade to the Silver Hosting plan that costs Ksh1,499 per year.

One advantage of free hosting is that you are provided with free resources. During this period, you’ll be able to save enough to buy the premium services when the free account expires.
The only disadvantage is that the resources are very limited. If your site exceeds the resources allocated, you’ll be forced to upgrade to a premium account.
