Sasa Host Kenya Expert’s Web Hosting Review

Sasahost is one of the best web hosting companies in Kenya, with more than 12 years of extensive hosting experience.

The company has over time managed to amass and maintain more than 12,000 customers spread across different countries.

What makes Sasahost unique is their reliable infrastructure, systems, processes, and professionalism in handling their clients.

Their customer support is reliable and available 24/7/365 via Live chats, phone calls and tickets (email).

As a form of quality service assurance, Sasahost gives 45 days money-back guarantee to new customers.

Their relatively higher prices notwithstanding, the company’s honesty has helped gain and maintain the trust of several website owners.

Sasahost does not oversell disk space or bandwidth, so you get value for your money.

The company hosts several reputable websites, ranging from Media houses, Banks, County Government websites, Medical facilities and personal websites.

Some of the websites hosted at Sasahost include:

 Kenya Copyright Board

How good is this plan?

This basic Sasahost plan resembles the Kenya Web Experts Starter Plan in several ways.

The disc space offered by the two web hosts differs by 5GB only.

Kenya Web Experts gives clients 500MB guaranteed memory, twice the RAM available with the Sasahost Starter plan.

Both companies will give you a FREE SSL certificate, allow you to create unlimited databases, and unlimited Email accounts for your website.

HostPinnacle Kenya outshines both Kenya Web Experts and Sasahost due to the Unlimited websites and unmetered bandwidth associated with all their hosting plans.

In addition, the FREE Domain at HostPinnacle is not available at Kenya Web Experts and Sasahost.

If this is not good enough for you, Sasa host allows you to upgrade to the KSh 5,500/yr hosting plan.

This gives you access to 448 Mb of Memory, 50 Gb Disk Space, 350 Gb Monthly Bandwidth, plus the much-needed SSL Certificate.

Let’s compare this with the Starter hosting plan.

For an additional Ksh.3,000 per year, Sasahost will give you an additional 50GB disc space.

You will also get 100GB additional monthly bandwidth and double the RAM allocated to the Starter plan.

If you are upgrading to this plan from the Starter plan due to poor site performance, you expect substantial improvement for your website.

The plan is however way too costly compared to several other web hosts in Kenya offering the same features.

Sasahost Reseller Hosting

If you are looking for VPS web hosting in Kenya, Sasahost has a Ksh 6,500/month plan for you.

With this plan you get 10 GB Guaranteed Memory, 4 CPU Cores for your website, 700 Gb Storage with Unmetered Traffic.

Sasahost Pros

Fast Load Time. Affordable Web Hosting Plan available for only Ksh 999/yr.

Free twice a week remote backups for your website files, databases, emails.

Reliable Spam & Virus Protection. 30 Days Money Back Guarantee.

Free SSL Certificates with automatic renewals. Reliable & Professional Support via phone and Ticket System.

Cons

Hosting Prices are Exclusive of VAT. This means that the prices listed are not explicit.
