4 Best GoDaddy Alternatives 2019 (Number #2 is Just Awesome)

Reading Time: 8 min read

This article has been updated in March 2019 to add more relevant alternatives to Godaddy.

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

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.

Wix vs Shopify: Our Conclusion by Testing Both Platforms (2019)

Reading Time: 13 min read

Building a website and building an online store overlap remarkably. Each area tends to have its own big software names, but there’s even an overlap here as well.

In this review, I’m going to look at what I think is one of the most interesting cases of overlap, and the ensuing competition that’s come out of it.In one corner, we have the most popular ecommerce platform around right now.

As far as out-of-the-box solutions go (meaning solutions that come with everything you need), Shopify is easily the king.

Since 2006, Shopify has facilitated over $82 billion in sales, and currently supports over 600,000 active stores. Enough said.

In the other corner of the ring, we have what is likely the most popular website builder: Wix. Wix has grown since 2006 to serve over 110 million users, with an average of 45,000 new signups every day.

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.

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!

Bluehost vs HostGator Comparison

“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!

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

Reading Time: 12 min read

Chris Wagner

“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.
