Bluehost or Hostinger, which is better?
Before answering the question of which one is better, let me share some facts with you that will help you decide between the two.
Do note that this is for beginners only, anyone having huge traffic should consider a business plan rather than the basic budget plan.
|Cost||Bluehost cost more||Hostinger 4 year plan is dirt cheap|
|Reliability||Very reliable||Very reliable|
|Ease of use||Easy||Easy|
|Setup Time||Setting up a blog is very fast||Hostinger takes a bit more time for setting up your blog/website.|
|Subdomain support||You can create a subdomain without having the main domain on Bluehost||You cannot create a subdomain without having the main domain on Hostinger|
|Free Domain||Domain comes free with 1yr plan||Domain comes free with 1yr plan|
|Migration||One migration is free||Unlimited migration|
|Number of website hosting||Unlimited||100 (this is good enough)|
Did the comparison help you or confuse you more? Well, let me make it simple for you.
Go for Bluehost if you have subdomains and the main domain is hosted on a different platform.
Other wise I will recommend Hostinger’s 4-year plan. Its very cheap. And over a period of time if your traffic increase, you can easily move to the Hostinger Business plan without any hiccups.
