- Best hosting companies for big websites
If you own a website that receive over 300,000 visitors per month, most local companies would recommend that you host with a Dedicated Server, but I will recommend Kinsta Web hosting company and A2 Hosting.Personally, all my six websites are hosted by Kinsta,it has been 7 years since I started hosting with them and there is no single day they have disappointed me.

Kinsta has packages for every website. The lowest amount you will pay is Ksh3,000 per month…you pay based on the resources you utilize. Even if your site receives 20 million, it will not go offline even a single day. What I like most about Kinsta is the customer service—they are perfect.
You can decide to pay per month or annually. If you pay annually, instead of paying for 12 months, you only pay for 10 months.
- A2 Hosting
A2 hosting is also another perfect hosting company for big websites. You will spend as little as Ksh1,000 per month to host your blog.
