If you want to start an e-commerce site in Kenya, it’s good to select the best web hosting company that will not go down when there are many customers on your site. I will highly discourage you from choosing a local hosting provider because most of them provide limited resources, instead I’ll list the best web hosting companies for your business that will provide 100% satisfactory.
As you are aware,e-commerce/online business require a lot of resources which need powerful servers. If you need well established web hosting companies for your business, please pick one of the following companies.
Bluehost has special packages for e-commerce sites, one that costs Ksh 1,600 per month and another one Ksh 2,500 per month. If your website is new, choose the one for Ksh2,500 per month. To visit Bluehost,click on this link
If your site grows to the size of Jumia, upgrade to Dedicated Server Hosting that cost as low as Ksh5,000 per month.
The good thing about Bluehost is that it provides free SSL certificate that protects your site from being hacked. It also offers 30-day money back guarantee, meaning that if you use their services for one month and realize that it doesn’t provide good services, you can ask for a refund.
