Hello UCAD readers,
I assume before you land on this page, you must have been looking for a good web hosting company to host your site.
That is why we have decided to compare the two best hosting company which is BLUE HOST AND HOSTGATOR.
I hope this review will help you to make the right choice.
As we all know, web hosting contributes greatly to the visibility of our site to search engine. If the uptime of your web hosting is not stable, then your site is at great risk of losing it SEO ranking. I see no need of have a site that is not visible to search engine.
Also visitors don’t like site that are slow, so I will advise you to always make hosting one of your priority need when budgeting for building a site.
I will compare this two great web hosting base on the following features;
1: Performance & Reliability
2: HostGator Vs BlueHost – Uptime
3: HostGator Vs BlueHost – Response Time
4: HostGator Vs BlueHost – Speed Test
5: Customer Support
6: User Interface
Performance & Reliability
BlueHost and HostGator is top most recommended web hosting provider, because of their excellent performances. Both of this two web hosting guarantees you with 99.9% uptime.
HostGator sites are hosted in Dual Xeon servers in their data centres at Dallas. The data centre is well equipped and connects to 10 backbone providers.
BlueHost use CPU Segregation technology which can intelligently control CPU and protect your site from bad users. Also, HostGator invest millions of dollars every year in new technologies for better performance.
To be sincere, after conducting a performance test between this two, HostGator’s performance was impressive.

Our website can only be useful only if it’s up and running. So, I decide to track the uptime of this two web hosting company, with the help of a popular uptime tracking tool called Host-tracker. Below was the result I acquired between a site hosted on HostGator and Bluehost for last several month.
HostGator had just 1 outage of 1 minute in the last 7 days, whereas BlueHost had 11 outages of total 51 minutes.
Pingdom is a popular tool use for checking sites response time. In order to know which web hosting has the best response time, I decided to conduct a test on sites hosted on these two hosts with the help of tool above.
Site hosted on HostGator never took more than 762 ms (0.76 seconds) to load, whereas site hosted on BlueHost had an average response time of 1550 ms (1.5 seconds);

P.S : If your website uses WordPress CMS i’d though suggest you go with Bluehost as WordPress itself brands bluehost as best web host for WordPress website due to reasons best known to them.
