Siteground vs. Hostgator – Forbes consultant
The lowest price you pay for SiteGround per month is $ 3.99 and for HostGator it is $ 2.75 per month. However, these rates are discounted rates granted only during your first term and reflect rates based on an annual prepaid purchase. HostGator offers the biggest discount on its 36 month contract, while SiteGround’s best monthly rate is based on a 12 month contract. Both plans have regular, higher prices on subsequent bills.
None of these web hosts offer free hosting, but they do offer a money-back guarantee if you don’t like the service. SiteGround’s warranty period is 30 days and HostGator’s 45 days.
Each host offers free, unlimited email accounts that you can access from anywhere with an internet connection. You will find that both hosts have good reviews, with some caveats. Several reviews of HostGator have mentioned that their websites were hacked without detection or notification of the host, even though security features were announced to prevent it from happening. SiteGround’s negative reviews revolved around long waiting times for support and no phone support access.
SiteGround offers 10 GB of storage with its basic plan, while HostGator’s storage is 50 GB. The maximum storage space in SiteGround’s plans is 40GB, while HostGator has unlimited storage space with its plans. SiteGround is slightly faster than HostGator thanks to its free content delivery network (CDN).
SiteGround offers either shared hosting or a dedicated server, but nothing in between. If you need a virtual private server (VPS), consider HostGator instead. Do you want to run multiple websites under one account? You can get the right package from either web host. Your only condition is that it be for common and common use for minor surgery (meaning you probably won’t be able to mine crypto with it).
HostGator doesn’t specifically name ecommerce features on its sales page, although it does have plenty of blog posts about why they’re perfect for ecommerce sites. SiteGround points out that it offers a free installation of WooCommerce, a shopping cart plugin for WordPress.
Another notable feature of SiteGround is its data center, which equates to 100% energy consumption in order to be climate neutral. Some blogs state that HostGator offsets 130% of its carbon footprint, but its website or knowledge base says nothing about carbon offsetting.
