Everyone is nowadays expanding business online. Digital Marketing is getting to be acknowledged for business growth models. On this verge of development having a ‘Web Hosting’ as well as Domain. In one of my previous articles, I have discussed the domain and a detailed overview of it. Now it’s time to start with another perspective of Web Development that is web hosting. Having a relevant web hosting solution is very important for any business to grow. Now as websites nowadays are not only relevant for business but for many other purposes. But I will mention the term business multiple time because whatever the purpose can be, the main target is to enrich the web traffic. Some of the well known companies are ‘Bluehost’, Go Daddy, ‘Hostinger’ etc.
Now we have discussed in an earlier article the different aspects a person should take care of before choosing a hosting solution. Now in this article, we will be discussing further the most famous company ‘Bluehost’. Why it is being preferred over the others. We will discuss the different aspects of the service & its different way one should choose it. We will discuss this keeping a beginner’s perspective in mind. So, let’s start the discussion and progress towards a conclusive study about the company.
In this article, we are going to discuss a comparison which is very crucial and famous. We are going to compare two of the most famous Hosting service companies. The first name is ‘Bluehost’ & another one is ‘Go Daddy’.
MODE OF DISCUSSION:
The reader of our website is aware of the trends of the discussion. We use of the relevant methodologies to discuss the topics. So, in this article also we will consider some of the most important parameters to compare both the services. This comparison will be highly simplified as well as detailed. If you are in a hurry and didn’t have much of a time to research, you have reached the perfect destination. So, follow the article till the end to get the full analysis. let’s start discussing without wasting more time.
- PARAMETERS WE WILL BE CONSIDERING TO COMPARE BOTH THE SERVICES:
a) Features, Performance, & Ease of Use
b) Best WordPress Integration
c) Better Switching Process
d) Customer Support
e) Pricing and Value for money
These are the parameters we will be considering to compare the service. As reading the bullet point you have realized that these are some of the relevant points, we all think about. So, let’s start with our first parameter.
1. FEATURES, PERFORMANCE & EASE OF USE:
Bluehost as well as Go Daddy both have a great feature relevance. As they are sitting on the top of the market, they are very serious about their features. Here I am giving you a brief difference in both the services:
|FEATURES||Go Daddy Hosting||Bluehost hosting|
|Disk space||Unlimited||100 GB|
|Uptime||99.97 %||99.98 %|
So, considering the features above mentioned we can see that Go Daddy and Bluehost are offering the services but have some of the difference. Firstly, Bluehost is availing you a free backup while Go daddy isn’t. Having a backup is always helpful for any website, so here the Bluehost is considerable. In the second case, Bluehost is giving a limited Disk space although Go daddy is giving a lot of space. So, from these perspectives, go daddy will be preferred more than that of Bluehost. The features in Go Daddy are slightly more effective in terms of any website to stay updated.
Now let’s move to the next point.
2.Best WORDPRESS Integration:
According to some of the surveys, 35% of the total web is WordPress. So, for creation of a website the majorities choice is to have WordPress. Now a good host should take care of the problems regarding the installations of WordPress.
WordPress offers a beginner friendly WordPress hosting starting from $ 2.95/month as well as VPS powered fully managed plans at $19.99/month.
- A)Officially recommended by WordPress: Bluehost is officially recommended by wordpress.org and has worked closely with WordPress.
- B) Installing WordPress: Blue host has always made it simple for its users to install WordPress and have increased the user-friendly interface so that anyone with no experience can also make it possible.
- C) WordPress speed: Bluehost gives a great WordPress speed which enables the creator to do plenty of work in the WordPress and can increase the user readability.
So, when we are talking about the WordPress, undoubtedly Bluehost is a clear winner. Bluehost offers a one clicks service which anyone can’t provide. Also, Bluehost has been recommended by WordPress itself since 2005. WordPress have recommended only 3 companies and among them Bluehost is the one. So, in terms of WordPress, Bluehost is a clear winner.
3. Better Switching Process:
If you want to switch your hosting service from one to another. Both Bluehost and Go Daddy doesn’t make it hard for you. But there is a clear winner among them.
Bluehost offers a free switching services with a one-time fee of $149.99. By paying with this fee, the company allows to switch in 5 websites and 20 email services. Also, Bluehost offers free switching services for WordPress websites who qualifies the criteria as set up by Bluehost.
Go Daddy needs more work to be done. Its doable but it doesn’t offer automated switching like Bluehost.
So clearly in terms of switching, Bluehost is always better than any other services.
4. Customer Support:
Good help and support are invaluable in hosting. Things don’t go wrong often, but when they do you want the techies in your corner.
Bluehost and GoDaddy both tick most of the boxes, offering knowledge centres, live chat, and 24/7 phone support. For commonplace problems this is all you’re likely to need.
Bluehost Knowledge Centre is a bit more thorough – it even exceeded our customer service expectations by 15%. That said, Go Daddy’s knowledge centre is also helpful. And if you don’t find the information, you’re looking for there, both providers are so widely used that someone, somewhere will have encountered the same problem as you and shared the solution online.
The big difference is Bluehost offers support tickets while GoDaddy doesn’t. Sometimes only personalized attention will do, and at the very least it’s good to have the option. Largely, though, there are better things to scrutinize than support when looking for the key differences between Bluehost and GoDaddy.
5. PRICING &VALUE FOR MONEY:
Money is one of the most crucial things in life. Many of you are here to find the cheaper service and it’s very fair for you. Bluehost and GoDaddy are both safe, reliable hosting options. If you don’t want to think about them any more than that then go for Bluehost. It offers better value for money.
|Type of Services||Bluehost Hosting||Go Daddy’s Hosting|
|Shared Hosting||$ 2.95- $14.99||$2.99-$12.99|
It’s an old trick of all the website hosting providers to a) always have a ‘sale’ on, and b) have a bunch of addons that you’ll need to pay for on top of the basic monthly rate.
Neither Bluehost nor GoDaddy get too cheeky with this. You shouldn’t expect to pay more than a few dollars a month to get a website off the ground, regardless of the one you choose. On the whole though, we think Bluehost offers that little bit more value – especially given that GoDaddy’s shared hosting rate soon jumps up to $7.99 per month.
Both offer 30-day money back guarantees, which is a brilliant option to have if you want to test the waters.
We have discussed different aspects regarding both the services. Both of the companies are well established and they have been providing services more than years. So, choosing any of them is secure. Now your purpose is important to be taken care off. If you want all your website elements in one place then Go Daddy is more preferable for you. Now if you want a better host for WordPress then go for Bluehost.
