Addis Ababa-based Ethiopian host Yegara Host markets itself as an affordable web host. Its “unlimited” web hosting is one of the reasons why it stands out from the competition.
Features and Ease of Use
Yegara Host has made it really easy to register a domain and host a website with just a few simple steps. Just choose a domain name, pick a hosting plan, and your website should be live within 10 minutes of making your payment.
This host’s hosting plans provide these features:
- cPanel control panel
- Free SSL certificate
- Free .com domain name
- SSH access
- Daily malware scanning
- MySQL databases
The three cloud hosting plans are called Personal Cloud, Business Cloud, and Managed Cloud. They all sit on super-fast SSD storage (which is far faster and more reliable than traditional HDD storage) in RAID 10 configuration (which guards against potential disk data disasters).
The Personal Cloud plan provides lots of unlimited resources: SSD storage, MySQL databases, email accounts, unlimited monthly bandwidth.
The Business Cloud and Managed Cloud solutions include the same resources as the Personal Cloud, plus daily automated backups, malware scans, and enterprise-level DDoS protection.
Servers sit in six locations; five in the United Kingdom and one in the United States.
Pricing and Support
Yegara Host’s web hosting plans come at pocket-friendly prices. You have to pay in Ethiopian birr via one of four local banks: Commercial Bank Of Ethiopia, United Bank, Awash Bank, or Dashen Bank.
There is no uptime guarantee, as far as I know, but you can request a refund within 30 days if you’re not happy with your hosting. This hosting provider does not commit to an uptime guarantee, but if you are unsatisfied with its hosting solutions, you can cancel within 30 days and request a full refund.
There is no knowledge base, as far as I know. However, customers can contact Yegara Host via telephone, live chat, Facebook Messenger, or Telegraph, and I was pleased to receive a reply to my exploratory email within minutes:
