Bluehost Or Hostgator: Which Should I Go For? by Donkenzy47(m): 12:03am On Apr 09, 2016
Hello, Fellow NairaLanders, am actually a newbie who is planning on going seriously into blogging by end of this year (because the stuffs i need are not yet available) and i need advice from the gurus in the house.
From my research concerning webhosting companies, i have decided to choose these two hosting companies as my top webhosting companies (because they seem cheap and have a slightly admirable user review unlike some other companies and also 99.9% server is guaranteed according to users).
But my problem is that some users complain of bluehost having server downtime issues while some complain of that of hostgators.
Please i need the gurus in the house to give me advice on this and i will also appreciate it if you can give the name of a particular website using any of the companies, the name of the company, the hosting plan, and issues you might like me to consider before making my purchase.
Please note that this website am planning of working will be advertised through google adwords and will likely have a huge traffic.
Thanks

My Whogohost.com gives me 99% server uptime. Foreign hosts are great sha just that with the recent price of Dollar, its OYO ooo. Cant afford to be paying close to 30k a year on hosting when I can also get it for like 6k.

Blogging doesnt involve any much capital. All you need is dedicate time to it.

My brother, just stick with BlueHost. Hostgator is a NIGHTMARE!. You could just wake up one day and all your works has been disappeared into the tin air.

No doubt, both are great companies. But bear in mind that most reviews you'll find online were written by shills who want to promote their own affiliate links.

I've been with Hostgator since 2013, and I've had no single issue with them. I have over 10 sites on my Baby plan, and their service and uptime have been outstanding. They keep backups for free and their support staff are responsive. And unlike Bluehost, they allow for monthly payment, which I've always opted for.

As for Bluehost, I've never used them, but I've read a lot of good reviews about them, mostly written by affiliate marketers.

One thing I know for sure about both companies is that they have a strict approval policy against Nigerians. So, signing up with them using a Nigerian ATM card can be a big issue because they'll request for stuffs like a photo of the ATM card and a scanned copy of your government-issued ID.

And just so you know, their services ain't cheap! Get ready to spend at least N22000 per annum.

Bluehost plan is better for blogs. They're integrated to other ads platforms like Facebook, Google AdWords etc and on hosting your blog, you get free ads unit/credit to run free ads. Whether you're on blogger or WordPress (which is their major partner) you're in good hands.

Hostgator is better for resellers and more commercial websites. Its plan is not that blog friendly.

I've been with bluehost since 2009 (vps hosting) but had to abandon them recently for godaddy due to several recent process hang and other uptime issues.

I also have about 6 websites hosted at whogohost and so far the performance has been above average for the past 2+ years. If I were you I'd stay away from bluehost for now unless you want to do shared hosting.

Hostgator (based on experience for about 7 years now). Just one or two downtimes ever.

Not used BlueHost so can't give you accurate info on that but reviews and top bloggers I follow say they're good.

I think you should get a notepad and pen and do an analysis of the pros and cons. Then, follow your heart.
