Safaricom Web Hosting: How To Set Up a New Website

Safaricom web hosting is a service offered by the company for small and medium sized businesses who wish to launch a website and and email services. Their we hosting is only ideal for startups and offers simple solutions with a great customer support.

If you are thinking of setting up a large site with a lot of traffic, Safaricom web hosting is NOT good for you. their serves cant handle a huge traffic and if they do, it will be a lot more expensive. you will end up paying tripple what you are offered at a regular web hosting company.

The only advantage i have seen with their hosting is the excellent customer support, and a cheap price for their introductory hosting packages. The lowest package you can get costs around Kshs. 599 ($5) this will get you a website, upto 5 email accounts, domain, and about 50MB of disk space.

The best package is their Platinum plan which costs around Kshs. 5000 ($50) which is great for a medium sized company but you will still need a better packaged when you expand since the plan can only handle not more than 3,000 unique visitors daily.

Setting up a site is easy and takes only a few minutes, but you need to have your phone to do so. They currently do not accept payment via a visa or master card, you only have to pay via the Mpesa which is kinda discouraging for those living outside the country.
