Are researching secure web hosting in Kenya?
Web Hosting is a service that allows individuals or organizations to post a website or a web page on the internet.
Web Hosting is done by a Hosting company or provider that provides the services needed to view a website or webpage through the internet.
Websites are stored and hosted on special computers called servers.
To access your website, web visitors need your domain name to connect to you easily. To host with most companies in Kenya, you need to own a domain name to uniquely identify your business. If you do not own a domain name, Web Host companies like TrueHost Cloud will help you purchase one at a cheap and affordable price. The .co.ke goes for Ksh.570 only.
With a domain name like (www.truehost.co.ke) and email, accounts feature provided by your hosting company you can be able to create your own domain email account.
If you purchase a domain at TrueHost Cloud, you get a free SSL Certificate installation and re-uses. An SSL Certificate is a digital certificate that provides a trusted environment to your website visitors and increases your brand value online.
Types of Hosting
This is the most common type of web hosting in Kenya. In Shared Hosting, a website is placed on the same server as many other sites. All domains may share the same resources such as RAM and the CPU. To provide hosting for clients, web companies have reseller accounts where resellers sell shared Web Hosting.
Reseller Web Hosting
Allows clients to become web hosts themselves. Resellers’ accounts vary in size and they may have their own virtual dedicated server. Resellers provide an identical service to their web host’s plan and provide technical support on their own.
Virtual Private Server
Divides the servers into virtual servers. The VPS provider may provide server administration tasks for the customer but at times customers are responsible for maintaining the unmanaged server. VPS is allocated resources based on one server to many VPS servers. The users can have root access to their own virtual space.
Dedicated Hosting service
The user gets his/her own web server and gets full control over it but the server ownership remains to the Host provider. Since the user has full administrative control of the server, the clients are responsible for the maintenance and security of his/her own server.
Managed Hosting service
In this service, the user gets the server but is not allowed full control over it to guarantee the quality of service from the Host provider. The user does not own the server, the server is leased to the client and the user is allowed to manage his/her data through remote management tools.
Cloud Hosting is the safest storage of data or information over the server space for the purpose of making information available to others. When a single computer goes down, other computers in the cloud can compensate. Allows charge for only those resources used by users. Cloud Hosting is decentralized, this means the user has less control of where their data is located. This is a problem to users with data security problems and privacy issues.

Email Hosting is the Internet Hosting service that operates internet servers at an affordable price to help companies manage their email accounts.
