The cost of web hosting in Kenya averages Ksh2,000 per year. However, there are companies which charge Ksh500 and others up to Ksh100,000 depending on the size of your website. But if your website/blog is new, you are not supposed to spend more than Ksh5,000 per year on hosting.
For blogs receiving 100,000 to 1000,000 visitors per month, they spend between Ksh 2,000 and Ksh 30,000 per year. Those receiving above 1000,000 visitors per month spend more than Ksh50,000 per year on hosting.
