Bluehost vs Siteground

Bluehost vs Siteground

I previously wrote about Bluehost vs Hostgator and if you missed that post then I would suggest checking it out. Here is a quick comparison between Bluehost and Siteground for web hosting and the tips to make your web site at Bluehost or Siteground faster.

Web Hosting

Based on my research of Bluehost, you can have unlimited disk space, data transfer and domain name registration all for a $2.99 per month. What does a $2.99 web hosting offer? Unlimited web pages and all domains and folders will be loaded in minutes as well as free 24/7 email and 100% uptime. Bluehost does provide their own email address to use and provide you with 4 domains that you can have up to a year. For Bluehost their site says that the site will load in 4 seconds. You also get 50 email addresses if you want.

Web Design

Bluehost has more features in their web design tools, but I think you can do a lot of the things you need to do. Bluehost has their own design software for you to use as well as shared hosting tools. Bluehost also offers unlimited bandwidth, unlimited email and web hosting for $2.99 per month and $3.50 per month for shared hosting. Siteground has the web design tools and works better for some people with larger sites and sites in more niche topics. You can get a lot of web design features, but I don’t think it’s good for people with larger websites and a bit more in their pockets. Siteground does offer unlimited bandwidth and all domains for a $1.49 per month and $2.99 per month for shared hosting. Siteground has a lot of web design tools and they do seem to offer good support and shipping.


Some people look at the features that a web hosting company offers and compare it to other hosting companies. It’s a fair comparison, but that’s not always what you need to consider. Sometimes you just need to compare the features and look at the pricing and what you’ll get. Bluehost says that they provide a fast, reliable and secure web hosting experience. Bluehost’s web hosting is also faster than Siteground’s web hosting for the same amount of space. Bluehost says they deliver a fast, reliable and secure web hosting experience as well and does deliver the features that you need.

Future Expectations

If you have a web site that you are looking to expand and you want something faster than Bluehost or Siteground that’s why you might look to use GoDaddy or 1&1. All three companies do offer cheap pricing, but their free web hosting accounts have limited features. Bluehost has limited free web hosting, but they do have unlimited bandwidth, unlimited disk space and they provide web hosting and domain registration for a $1.99 per month. Bluehost does have a lot of free tools and features, but you don’t get the extra features for a lot of people. You also need to provide a credit card number to get the service and that’s not free. Bluehost has web hosting and you can start a website with it but I would not recommend it unless you have more money to buy more web hosting in the future.

If you use Bluehost and it has some good features, you may not notice any difference in the speed, but if you are looking for speed, you might want to look at Siteground for faster web hosting.

Final Thoughts

All three companies are affordable for what they offer and you can have a good experience with any of them. They all provide good features, you can get web hosting and domain registrations for less and you can look at GoDaddy and 1&1 for a lot of additional features, but they do have slightly different prices. However, if you are looking for a cheap web hosting that works well, I’d recommend Bluehost or Siteground for your web hosting. They have the features that you need at the cheap price that’s sometimes hard to get.
