4 Best Shopify Alternatives (No. #2 Shopify Competitor is Awesome)

Reading Time: 10 min read

As time passes, Ecommerce is increasingly relevant.

Regardless of how you feel about Shopify, it’s pretty undeniable it’s the reigning ecommerce software. It’s an earned title, as Shopify packs in a very powerful set of services with its platform.

However, just because it’s the most popular doesn’t mean it’s for everyone. Maybe Breitbart’s ties to Shopify are turning you off, or maybe Shopify just isn’t doing one thing you really need well enough. Maybe the feel isn’t right.

Well, don’t worry, there is a diversity of alternatives to Shopify. Their pricing varies and you can look it up easily, so I won’t be too detailed here, but they can all be worth it depending on what you want.

Each of these provides all the basics you need to have a good experience running your shop, but provide some benefits that may be far more suited to you, things that Shopify just doesn’t do as well. And of course, some of them may just click with you more.

Reading Time: 7 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.

3 Best HostGator Alternatives for 2018 (Number #2 is My Favorite)

Reading Time: 8 min read

HostGator has had several network outages since its original owner sold it to Endurance International Group (EIG) back in June 2012.

The latest HostGator server outage was in December 2016. With the yearly outages plaguing its network since 2012, we wonder when the next HostGator outage may be.

Since we haven’t heard from the company what steps they’re taking to prevent similar network outages from happening again in the future, we can only surmise that they have taken care of the problem internally.

One other concern that some have raised about HostGator is its worsening customer support, which again came about after its acquisition by EIG.

If you are wary of HostGator in light of the network outages and/or worsening customer support, or if you’re looking for more reliable hosting, you might want to look at other providers with more stellar records in network uptime as well as customer support.

NameCheap Review 2018: Uptime History + Pros & Cons after using it!

Reading Time: 8 min read

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, as I believe they are a market leader when it comes to domain name registrations.

Here is the guide to register domain on NameCheap.

Recently, I had a chance to launch a small project, and I decided to try out Namecheap’s shared hosting plans. Based on my experience, here is my review of Namecheap as a hosting provider along with it’s pros and cons.

GreenGeeks Review: From Speed to Customer Support My Experience

Reading Time: 10 min read

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.

SiteGround Review: Pros & Cons after 5 Months of Monitoring!

Reading Time: 10 min read

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.

Google Domains Review: Pros and Cons after 3 Months of Tracking

Reading Time: 8 min read

Google Domain Review:

Unknown to many, Google domain registration services (similar to NameCheap), courtesy of Google Domains. However, the service is still currently on beta, despite launching way back in January 2015.

It is not available worldwide as well; rather, only people with billing addresses in the US, Canada, India, and the United Kingdom can make purchases on Google Domains.

The above does not mean that you won’t be able to manage your existing domain accounts when you’re travelling outside these countries.

As long as you have a valid billing address in these countries, you will be able to purchase a domain from the service.

InterServer Review: My findings after using it for 6 months

Reading Time: 6 min read

Don’t be surprised if the name ‘InterServer’ doesn’t ring a bell with you. It is not as popular as some other mainstream web hosts such as BlueHost and HostGator.

The reason is probably that InterServer does not allocate huge marketing budgets as most other web hosts do.

However, despite being less common, InterServer has a robust and efficient service and it will be hard for you to look past it once you get to know this company.

4 Best GoDaddy Alternatives 2018 (Number #2 is Just Awesome)

Reading Time: 8 min read

You know, millions of Authors and Hundreds of Enterprises have changed their hosting from GoDaddy to InMotionhostingBlueHost, FastComet and DreamHost in recent past. All of them were tired of expensive renewal plans, irritating customer service and vulnerable servers.

GoDaddy is known to attract new customers by offering really cheap domain names and web hosting.

GoDaddy offers new domains for as cheap as $10 per year but when you plan to renew it the very next year they charge ten times of the initial amount. This marketing tactic must have brought in a few customers but it is not a good practice to continue with.
