Reading Time: 8 min read

DreamHost won PC Magazine’s Editor’s Choice for web hosting in 2016, marking the third straight year the company has won that distinction (if you want to know more about the award, click here for more details).

What’s more impressive is that the company won in both the general web hosting and small business web hosting categories.

DreamHost is highest rated web hosting by PCMag.com

DreamHost currently hosts more than 1.5 million websites and 750,000 WordPress sites.

Founded in 1996 by four undergraduate students from Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, California, DreamHost started offering hosting services a year later; thus, this year marks DreamHost’s 20th anniversary in the web hosting business.

DreamHost is also an open-source pioneer, having contributed development and engineering resources to the open-source OpenStack project since 2011.

In fact, DreamHost CEO Simon Anderson has sat on the OpenStack Foundation’s Board of Directors since its inception.

DreamHost’s commitment to open-source has also saw it spun off two companies directly involved in open-source projects: the Ceph file system professional services and support company Inktank and the network virtualization project Akanda.

Bluehost Review: Pros and Cons Based on my Experience

Reading Time: 5 min read

While writing for GoDaddy alternatives, I had briefly explained why BlueHost was one of my choice. In this article I will do a thorough BlueHost Review and let you know if you should consider it for hosting your website.

With over 2 million hosted websites, BlueHost is one of Internet’s most popular web hosting companies.

The low cost shared hosting from BlueHost is one of the most popular in its product line which also includes VPS hosting, dedicated hosting, domains, email, content delivery network and cloud hosting.

The average monthly searches for the exact keyword BlueHost, establishes the fact they’re one of the most popular hosting providers.

HostGator Review: Why I Love/Hate HostGator (Save $149+ on Plans)

Reading Time: 11 min read

I think you’ll agree with me on this:

Web hosting companies can be hard to choose.

There are so many competing plans, packages, and terms that it can easily get lost in translation.

This is true especially if you are new to web hosting, domains, servers, and looking for free web hosting business in general.

I want to clear up some of the mess by providing you with a simple guide to HostGator web hosting and the services they provide. They’re not free web hosting, but they provide much more value than you pay for.

In fact, in the next few sections, I want to lay out what I’ve discovered about HostGator and why I recommend them as one of the best web hosting companies for 2017.

After this, you’ll be confident that you can make an informed choice about which provider you’ll choose for all your hosting and domain services.

I’ve known that HostGator has been around for a while, and that they’ve been providing a steady and reliable source of web hosting for newcomers and experienced web wizards alike.

But it was when I saw in the news that they were opening up their line of all-new, high-powered dedicated servers that are 4 times faster than before that I perked up.

4 times faster dedicated servers! I’ll tell you more about why you care about that in a second.

BlueHost Vs GreenGeeks – WINNER Based on My Experience

Reading Time: 6 min read

We’ve previously compared Bluehost to DreamHost and Bluehost came out on top, by a significant margin. Now, it’s time to see if GreenGeeks is a better hosting provider than Bluehost.

I will compare the shared hosting products of both GreenGeeks and Bluehost. The testing categories will be:

  • Feature set – Do they offer everything you expect?
  • Performance – Will the website load in time?
  • Support – Are they friendly, fast and willing to help?
  • Ease of use – Does it just work with no messin’ around?

For each category, I’ll summarise what each company offers, where possible I’ll bring raw data in.

After I’ve compared, I’ll then assign a winner to each one. I’m an experienced web developer / consultant with experience of dozens of different web hosts, I know what features are worth having and which ones are just hot air.

It’s time to get started.

DreamHost Vs BlueHost Comparison – FACTS Based on My Experience

Reading Time: 5 min read

Today we are going to be comparing two reliable hosting companies – DreamHost and Bluehost.

Both companies are fairly well known in the hosting sphere so it’s time to put them to the test, we will be comparing them on:

  • Feature set – Do they offer everything you expect?
  • Performance – Will the website load in time?
  • Support – Are they friendly, fast and willing to help?
  • Ease of use – Does it just work with no messin’ around?

I’ll declare a winner at each stage of the review and then will summarise the overall winner based on their performance throughout the review. I’ll be using hard statistics when it comes to the performance aspect, and a more holistic ‘how it feels’ approach when it comes to ease of use.

Over the last 10 years I’ve had hands on experience with pretty much all the big web hosts as well as lots of the smaller ones, I know what to look for in a good / bad host and I know what features set them apart.

SiteGround Vs Bluehost: Which is Best, Fast and Reliable Hosting?

Reading Time: 9 min read

If you’re not very familiar with Bluehost, you may have first encountered the name in a story about it being hacked in 2015 by the Syrian Electronic Army.

If you’ve only encountered Siteground by looking into web hosting options, that makes sense—outside of the web hosting world, Siteground’s stayed out of the news (which is probably a good thing).

But let’s not start off this comparison review on a sour note!

For all the problems of today, we live in a good time.

Let’s go basic for a second. The internet is full of websites. You can visit countless sites of all kind. Naturally, this is due to the fact that nowadays, almost anyone can create website.

And this means there is no shortage of companies vying for the position of being the service you choose to host your site.

HostGator Vs GoDaddy: Comparison Based on Speed, Price & Support

Reading Time: 7 min read

Web hosting is a funny thing. There are over 1,000 suppliers of what is essentially the same product. This same product that has no visible performance indication.

I can’t think of many other things you would buy without knowing more information. Imagine renting a room in a flat with other people.

Now imagine that you don’t know how many people you are sharing with, how much stuff they have or what kind of business they are in.

This is an in-depth comparison of GoDaddy and Hostgator, I host hundreds of sites for various clients across all sorts of different hosting companies, it’s becoming a nightmare to manage and it’s about time I consolidated everything into one place to save money and effort.

Before making the plunge and choosing a provider I need to compare some of the big guns.

I’m going to be comparing GoDaddy & Hostgator, arguably two of the biggest companies in web hosting, the both boast lots of the same features and seem to have good reviews overall.

Both have been around long enough that they should have well established support systems, and community’s behind them who are very familiar with their products and pitfalls.

Bluehost Vs Godaddy: Who is the Best in Battle of Web Hosting?

Reading Time: 9 min read

Both BlueHost and GoDaddy are experienced providers of cheap and reliable web hosting. But, they always compete in varied ways.

For instance, in February 2017, BlueHost announced an end to its Ticket Support. The host announced that it would offer Live Chat and Telephone support only. The aim of this move is to provide a better and speedy service.

In March 2017, GoDaddy slashed the rates of its automatic website-making software by up to 75 percent. This move is aimed at tapping medium and small businesses and enabling their owners to exploit the internet potential fully.

Both BlueHost and GoDaddy have been providing web hosting for a long time. And today, both are trusted and well-known brands.
