Web design services
Kenya Website Experts does not indicate whether they offer Web design services but HostPinnacle offers the services.

- Which company has the best servers
Both companies have 99.9% uptime servers but Kenya Website Experts tend to favour big sites more. For small and medium websites that get not more than 1 million visitors per month, HostPinnacle will be the best but for viral website, their servers will be overwhelmed. News websites with millions of views are hosted by Kenya Website Experts.
- Free Website Migration
HostPinnacle offers free migration of websites but Kenya Website Experts will charge you Ksh1,000 to migrate your blog from another hosting company. HostPinnacle offers free migration of your website from another hosting company.
Both hosting companies are good for hosting but HostPinnacle is cheaper and most reliable. It’s also ideal for small and medium website. However, it isn’t the best for viral websites. Kenya Website Experts is a bit expensive but good for all websites.
