About AED 1 Hosting

Choosing a hosting company may seem easy enough – after all, there are hundreds if not thousands of hosting companies out there. For less than $3 a month you can usually find unlimited disk space and bandwidth with 99.9% uptime – what more do you need? It turns out, quite a bit more, actually.

Operating a web development, web hosting, and IT infrastructure company for over 15 years for our niche clientele we have seen the dirty side of the shared hosting ecosystem. We always wanted to provide a quality hosting environment for small business, but never got an opportunity to serve this business community until...

Why did we launch our “Start Your Digital Journey for just AED 1 A Day?
Since last few years, we have positioned ourselves as a complete digital transformation agency in Dubai. We did meet several small companies who wanted to start their social media campaigns, at the same time Dubai Govt. launched Smart Dubai Initiative and according to some survey and reports, there were around 65% small business in Dubai who didn’t have an online presence. (No websites, some social media, and just using the free emails by Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo. Not even using the free domain and web space provided by DED) That’s when we thought, we need to change and create awareness about digital presence apart from social media and we wanted to develop of a complete bundled solutions, which would be a painless effort for business users and individuals, and thus “Start Your Digital Journey for AED 1” was born.

The package is not limited to small business only, it could be helpful for someone looking or job, for individual professionals, for a CEO, for a Professor, for a Doctor, for anyone who would love to have a digital presence apart from the social media platforms.
