Truehost is one of the most popular hosting companies in Kenya. The company has been in existence for more than 3 years and it’s hosting packages are favourable to small and large websites. We would like to review its plans, prices, registration details and contacts.

Recently, one of our readers wrote us a message which stated:

“hey, please help me migrate my website to another hosting company, it has grown big such that no Kenyan company is ready to accommodate its traffic”. We straight away referred the client to Bluehost which hosts over 2 million websites. Bluehost is more superior to local hosting sites and their servers can sustain any amount of traffic.

Kenyan websites like Truehost are good when one is registering a new website. The company is reliable and has excellent review from Kenyans.

It costs Ksh 570 to register a .co.ke domain and Ksh 1,000 to register .com domain.

The Gold Hosting plan Is the one I would recommend any serious blogger to select. But if your site is new, go for Silver package and upgrade later.Platnum hosting plan is good for medium websites.If your website gets 1,000-5,000 visitors per day,this is the plan to purchase.But it’s better to go for Bluehost when the traffic exceeds 10,000 visitors per day,check plans here

Truehost Reviews

I have managed to ask some of my friends who host their websites at Truehost Kenya, all of them agree that it’s a good hosting company but majority consider it as not appropriate for big sites,sites that receive over 10,000 visitors per day.They recommend Bluehost instead

Truehost rating

Out of 10, the company’s rating is 7.The best part is registration and hosting for small sites but the downside is when sites receive traffic spikes and visitors above 10,000 per day.

Does Truehost offer free hosting services?

Truehost offers free hosting services for new websites only and it’s only those who purchase domains at Truehost that benefit.
