Shopify vs SquareSpace: Head to Head Comparison (2019)

Reading Time: 12 min read

Despite the fact that I’m very involved with the worlds of Shopify and Squarespace—site building, shop-building, ecommerce, etc—I tend to mix these two names up. Why? Well, I suppose because I frequently see advertisements for the both of them, and they’re the two big “S” names in building software.

While it’s true these two companies overlap, they’re also pretty different. Shopify is the most established commercial name in ecommerce software, having facilitated over $82 billion in sales since its founding in 2006.

Squarespace provides easy website building and was founded in 2003. It may not be the single most popular website builder (we don’t have exact numbers for these things, to be honest), but it’s certainly one of the most recognizable brands.

Both companies can claim, as part of their popularity, a lot of big names that have signed onto their services. A couple of Shopify’s big clients include Kylie Jenner’s company and Nestle.

Squarespace, focusing more on an appeal to creatives, has Idris Elba and Keanu Reeves under its belt.

Woah. Clearly, Shopify and Squarespace are leaders in their respective fields. Suppose these two big names were to clash—who would win?

DreamHost Vs BlueHost Comparison – FACTS Based on My Experience

Reading Time: 10 min read

DreamHost and Bluehost are some of the biggest and most well-respected names in the world of hosting. Bluehost might be the giant here: around since 2003, it supports over 2 million websites, easily making it one of the world’s biggest hosting companies.

DreamHost is no slouch, and in fact is the older brother of the two (if not the “bigger” one): DreamHost was founded in 1996 and supports over 1.5 million websites with some 400,000+ customers in over 100 countries.

Clearly, at this point a simple number comparison won’t do the trick. DreamHost and Bluehost are hosting companies of comparable size, reputation, and popularity.

So which one is better?

Naturally, no solution is perfect for everyone, and different companies may excel in different areas. In this comparison, I’ll discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these top-tier hosts in relation to each other, with a particular focus on shared hosting due to its popularity.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s get to it!

Reading Time: 4 min read

If you have been exploring options to find the most suitable domain registrars, then Google domains and GoDaddy are names you wouldn’t have missed.

“I have been a paying customer for both BlueHost and HostGator.

I am monitoring both shared hosting’s servers for Uptime and Performance through my website hostingpill-bh.website and hostingpill-hg.website.

This Comparision of BlueHost vs HostGator is based on actual testing done on their servers.”

It is time for us to witness a clash of the titans.

Bluehost and HostGator are two of the largest and most established hosting companies out there right now.

In a way, the two are related: they’re both subsidiaries of Endurance International Group.

These two brothers, or cousins, together have hosted millions of sites, and are two of EIG’s largest providers.

The truth is, however, Bluehost is an even larger titan—more of a behemoth, up there with GoDaddy in the power of its name and the amount of sites its hosted.

HostGator’s range is in the hundreds of thousands, while Bluehost likely has 2 million or more sites powered on its servers.

Does HostGator live up to its larger rival?

Or maybe the question is this: does Bluehost’s size lead it to overlook certain things, things with HostGator excels in?

These are all excellent questions, and I’m sure you have even more.

If you’ve been looking into what hosting company you want to go with, there’s a fair chance you’ve at least come across these two, if you haven’t put them on your list.

So without further ado, let’s get into our comparison of these two hosting companies!

000WebHost Review: My Pros & Cons using 000Webhost

Reading Time: 5 min read

This 000WebHost Review was revised and updated on February 4, 2019.

Getting a free host is always an exciting deal, especially when you are running low on budget. If you have been searching for free hosting then you would realize that the options for well-known and free hosting are somewhat limited.

Here I would speak about one such well-known hosting option which is popularly known for its free hosting services. This is none other than 000webhost.

000webhost is part of Hostinger. With 000webhost you can avail a lifetime free service, a reason to make it more unique.

Being a fully free hosting service, 000webhost does have few limitations, however, it gives a series of benefits which you probably would never expect in free hosting.

So, getting down to the crux of the point, 000webhost has few pros and cons which I will be discussing in more details through my review.

Go ahead and enjoy reading more about 000webhost!!

1&1 IONOS Review: Features are Awesome, but what about Uptime?

“We have been a paying customer for 1&1 IONOS since August 2018.

We are monitoring 1&1 IONOS’s shared hosting servers for Uptime and Performance through our website hostingpill-11.website.

This review of 1&1 IONOS hosting is based on actual testing done on their servers.”

This 1&1 IONOS Hosting Review was revised and updated on February 4, 2019.

What is 1&1 IONOS Hosting?

I like to think of 1&1 IONOS as the hidden giant of the hosting world.

This seems to be the case for America, at least—most people who aren’t familiar with hosting, and have taken only a few cursory looks, know more about GoDaddy and Bluehost.

Despite that, 1&1 IONOS is one of the largest hosting providers in the world: they service more than 8 million customers and 12 million domains.

Perhaps it’s because 1&1 IONOS is mainly centered in Europe, but nonetheless it has a massive reach.

Although 1&1 IONOS has been around since 1988—which is incredibly old in internet company terms—it hasn’t stopped growing.

In fact, they just recently changed their brand name to 1&1 IONOS, reflecting a new integration with the cloud.

So, how does this hidden titan perform?

Is it truly outcompeted by the other famous names in hosting, or does it quietly dominate?

In this review, I will speak from my experience and knowledge of the hosting landscape.

A2 Hosting Review: Give Us 5 Min, We’ll Give You The Facts

“We have been a paying customer for A2 Hosting since July 2017.

We are monitoring A2 Hosting’s shared hosting servers for Uptime and Performance through our website hostingpill-a2.website.

This review of A2 Hosting is based on actual testing done on their servers”.

This A2 Hosting Review was revised and updated on February, 2019.

Every now and then I review a company that is simultaneously unknown to most of the public (even on the internet public), and very well-regarded among those who follow hosting.

A2 Hosting is one such company.

Founded in 2001, A2 has gone from hosting a few websites to a few thousand.

That’s great growth, but is a few thousand really something to brag about?

Even the quality hosting providers on the smaller side service hundreds of thousands of sites.

And yet, A2 has managed to stay in the game for 17 years without losing its competitive edge.

As they like to show, A2 has won quite a few hosting awards from popular sites.

It’s natural for you to wonder if A2 is as capable as its reputation suggests.

Are you looking at a hidden gem, or a mediocre service that’s fooled a few people into going along with it?

Does its small size mean it lacks features, or that it focuses more on quality—or both?

All these questions and more, I will address in this review.

SiteGround Review: Pros & Cons after 16 Months of Monitoring!

“I have been a paying customer for SiteGround since October 2017.

I am monitoring SiteGround’s shared hosting servers for Uptime and Performance through my website hostingpill-sg.website.

This review of SiteGround is based on actual testing done on their servers and interaction with their customer support.”

This SiteGround Hosting Review was revised and updated on February 4, 2019.

Ah, Siteground. If you’ve been looking into web hosting lately, there is no way you haven’t stumbled across this name.

Easily one of the biggest names in the world of web hosting, it can be a little hard to know where to start.

It’s mostly stayed out of the news, minus its vocal opposition to the United States bills SOPA and PIPA a few years ago (if you’re unfamiliar, it was in good company here, joining many major online companies in protest).

If it’s stayed out of the news though, it definitely has not stayed out of articles and reviews. It’s just too notable to not hear about if you’re curious about this stuff.

But is bigger always better? How many online Siteground reviews can you really trust anyway? What makes Siteground stand apart from some other top names?

Of course, I can’t fully answer those questions, but I hope to at least shed some light about Siteground nonetheless.

FastComet Review: Last 16-Months Performance Stats & Comparison

“I have been a paying customer for FastComet since October 2017.

This review of FastComet is based on actual testing done on their servers.”

This FastComet Hosting Review was revised and updated on February 4, 2019.

So you’ve been looking into web hosting.

You’ve heard all the big names and you’ve seen plenty of top ten lists.

If you’ve seen a list of the top ten hosting options, there’s almost no way you haven’t seen the name FastComet come up.

But maybe if you decided to Google around, you haven’t found many (if any) news articles featuring FastComet.

Well, nothing from a reputable source anyway.

So of course you ask yourself one of the most common questions of our age—is it legit?

Well I have good news (or bad, in that more options can make your decision more difficult): yes, FastComet’s legit!

First of all, don’t be too put off by the lack of news articles. The biggest hosting companies may get some mentions in the news, but bigger doesn’t always mean better, even in the world of hosting.

In fact, in my opinion, it’s a testament to FastComet’s versatility as a platform that it has managed to maintain such a positive image online without encountering significant negative press from big sources.

So don’t worry!

FastComet may not be in the news, but it’s definitely in the reviews, and it’s in good ones at that.

Take, for example, this review.

This review of GreenGeeks is based on actual testing done on their servers.”

This GreenGeeks Hosting Review was revised and updated on February 4, 2019.

Web hosting is a big deal and it’s only becoming a bigger deal. I’m sure you’ve heard names like Squarespace, Wix, Bluehost, Hostgator, and so on.

From simple website builders to dedicated hosting, carving out your space on the internet is an important rite of our time.

Ever heard of GreenGeeks? Well, you may not have. If you have, it’s probably been from an article talking about top hosting platforms, or most likely ecologically friendly web services.

Otherwise though, it’s stayed out of the news. It’s not really that big, so it makes sense that it’s not been discussed too much in the mainstream hosting world.

But it is gaining traction, that’s for sure, and the eco-friendliness is only part of it (a big part of it, but not all of it).

GreenGeeks is not perfect, but it is a powerful package for people interesting in affordable and easy web hosting solutions.
