DreamHost Vs BlueHost Comparison – FACTS Based on My Experience

Reading Time: 7 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.

It’s been in business since 2002—which, for the hosting world, means it’s pretty well established—and it’s gotten big enough to have international offices in addition to its HQs in Austin and Houston.

In 2012, HostGator was acquired by Endurance International Group (EIG), which also owns another major hosting provider—Bluehost.

We don’t know the final number of subscribers HostGator has, but it surpassed 200,000 customers way back in 2009.

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

Started in 2000, Namecheap began it’s journey into the hosting industry offering domains and then stepped up it’s services in terms of hosting and other add-on services.

From Domain registrations to shared hosting, Reseller hosting to dedicated servers, today Namecheap has a host of services under it’s umbrella.

One of the most transparent and honest providers I have found online, Namecheap’s honesty reflects in it’s mission :

We never bombard our clients with unwanted upsells or in-your-face advertising. Our goal is to be honest, straightforward, friendly and helpful.”

For most of my projects, I generally use Namecheap to book my domains. Here are reasons why I am using NameCheap over Godaddy.

And here is the guide to register domain on NameCheap and tools to generate domain name ideas.

Recently, I had a chance to launch a small project, and I decided to try out Namecheap’s shared hosting plans.
