I admit there are plenty of jobs to do before starting a website but the important thing you need to select a perfect web host. This is the place where your blog files going to be store and will be live so readers can browse and read it.
Being a beginner, selecting the right web host is the critical situation as I was once in that place. Because there are hundreds even thousands of web hosting companies available on the Internet and so far.
Some of them will promise you to provide the best resources but once you sign up, you will end up with moving to another host.
I am making you afraid but I have passed from these headaches but I don’t let happened with it with you.
So, I have published a depth article about a list of best WordPress hosting providers, in which I recommended Hostgator, Bluehost and Siteground. In this article, I will help you to choose the best web hosting by a detailed comparison between Bluehost, HostGator and Siteground along with pros. and cons. of their shared plans.
Bluehost vs Hostgator vs Siteground Comparison
I have been blogging since 2016 and used Hostgator and Bluehost on my primary blogs. I had also superb experience with Siteground on my one blog (sold last year).
For you knowledge, Harpreetkumar.com currently hosted on Hostgator cloud hosting. Before I was using Bluehost which never give me chance to complain instead of saying thanks to them.
Why did I move to Hostgator?
I was not thinking of moving from Bluehost as I love Bluehost services. But, one day, I got an email from HostGator before 1-month expiring date of my hosting plan on Bluehost.
Hostgator offer me to up to 75% discount on any web hosting plan. It was an opportunity to save money that I couldn’t miss. So without wasting time, I purchased their Business Cloud Plan for 2 years (24 months). Here is a screenshot of that email I got from them.
So far, Bluehost & Hostgator has surprised me with awesome services and support. On the other hand, Bluehost & Siteground is officially recommended web hosting by WordPress (link here).
WordPress is a space eating platform. So, your hosting must have a huge amount of storage to keep your blog run smoothly even big traffic loads. And all recommended web hosting companies specially organized to handle this situation.
I managed to handle over 20K per day traffic on Bluehost & Hostgator shared hosting and even my others blogs also hosted on it but I never face any issue.
Bluehost vs. HostGator vs. Siteground Comparison and Pricing Table
|Website Link||Visit Bluehost||Visit Hostgator||Visit Siteground|
|Free Adwords Credit||$100||$100||NIL|
|Payment Gateway||PayPal/Credit card||PayPal/Credit card||PayPal/Credit card|
|Recommended By Wordpress||Yes||No||Yes|
|Free Blog Migration||No||Yes||No|
As in the above comparison table you can see the features available and not in Bluehost, Hostgator and Siteground shared hosting plans which I recommend respectively in below order:
Here is, why?
Being a beginner, you don’t have the technical knowledge to manage your blog then my recommendation to go with Bluehost. Because it offers free com domain, free SLL certificates, PHP 7, 24/7 tech support features for free which are the most essential tools in today’s blogging industry.
However, Hostgator also offers the same features but free com domain not included in their web hosting plans. Which put Hostgator on the 2nd step right after Bluehost.
Sign up for HostGator (Coupon: HARPREETKUMAR60OFF) Flat 60% off when you purchase 3 years plan
Siteground also recommended hosting by WordPress but it stands on 3rd place in my recommendation right after Bluehost and Hostgator.
Siteground offering flat 50% off only for HarpreetKumar.Com users. For your benefit, I recommend you to go with their Growbig plan for a two or three-year package to save money on your first bill.
I hope, this comparison between Bluehost Hostgator and Siteground will help you take the best decision while choosing the right web hosting for your next blog. Once you decide, tell me which hosting you are going to purchase among the above 3 companies, in the comments section.
