I put Bluehost vs SiteGround head to head to see which one comes out on top as the best shared hosting solution for WordPress.
Check out SiteGround here ➜
Look at Bluehost here ➜
Since both of these web hosts are recommended by WordPress, I do an apples-to-apples comparison in multiple categories based on the information they display on their websites, as that is the information most people will review when making a decision.
The first category is support, this is the most important thing to consider when choosing web hosting because at some point something will go wrong and when it does you want to have available, responsive support reps to resolve your issue. You’ll see which one offers more options to contact support, and which gives a faster response.
Next is speed. The faster your website loads, the better the experience for the visitor, especially if they are on mobile. The foundation of a fast loading website is the server hardware where your website is hosted. What we’re looking for is technology they tell us they use in order to make their servers perform at fast speeds.
After that, I do a comparison between the features that #SiteGround and #Bluehost provide, starting with the features they both have in common, then covering what each has that the other doesn’t. There could be some features one offers that the other doesn’t that ends up being the deciding factor for your choice.
I also like to take a look at what other people say about these WordPress hosting companies. There are a couple of polls taken by a WordPress Facebook group which compares a bunch of different #webhosting companies. I’ll show you where each of these companies ranks in relation to each other and the other hosts in the poll. And I’ll also bring up what people are saying about the owners of a particular company.
And lastly is pricing. As with any purchase, we want the one that is going to give us the most value for our buck. One is more expensive than the other, but is it offering more or less features for the higher price? You’ll find out.
