“We have been a paying customer for both SiteGround and BlueHost.

We are monitoring both shared hosting’s servers for Uptime and Performance through our website hostingpill-sg.website and hostingpill-bh.website.

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

Comparison updated: October 2018

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).bluehost-vs-siteground

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.

“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.

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!

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.

Comparison updated: September 2018

If you’re looking into hosting, you will certainly have heard of these two names.

Bluehost and GoDaddy are two of the biggest hosting providers out there, so big that they’ll come up on almost every major list of the best hosting options.

How on earth is it possible to choose, then?

GoDaddy is probably the better-known provider of the two, but does that mean it’s better?

Bluehost’s front page gives a starting price of $2.95 a month, and GoDaddy gives a starting price of $2.49 a month, but is the price difference noteworthy?

Or, does Bluehost’s increased price mean it’s delivering better service?

Ultimately the choice is yours, and while it can be tough to pick, we’ll help you get there.

SiteGround, as well as GoDaddy both, are well-known brand names in the web hosting industry.

Both of these platforms are used by many and have a list of features to their credit.

Which one to choose is just a difficult thing to conclude, especially if you do not get a comparative analysis of these two platforms.

While choosing a web hosting platform, there are several points which needs to be considered. It’s never easy to choose one.

Through this post, I will provide a comparative study of SiteGround and GoDaddy.siteground vs godaddy

I will discuss more in details about their pros and cons.

This will help you decide which platform would work best for you.

First, let me give a brief overview of both these hosting platforms.

NameCheap vs GoDaddy

Reading Time: 9 min read

So you have planned to launch your own website? That’s great. Something very basic you would need is a domain. And yes a domain registrar to start with.

To start with, let me briefly tell you what exactly is domain registration. Domain name registration is the process of reserving a name on the Internet for a specific period of time, such as one year.

The domain remains with you, so long as you renew it. There is no way to purchase a domain name forever.

A domain name gives your website a unique, recognizable name. There are several hosting companies which provide domain registration as well along with hosting solutions.

Indeed, choosing the right domain registration service could be a tedious job, unless you are completely aware of the services the companies offer.

I have been using two equally big hosting brands NameCheap and GoDaddy for quite some time.

Based on my experience, I will give you a comparative review of both of their domain registration services.

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

Reading Time: 8 min read

godaddy_vs_hostgator 2018Web 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 GreenGeeks – WINNER Based on My Experience

Reading Time: 7 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.
