SiteGround vs DreamHost 2018

29

APRIL, 2018

Reviews

Choosing the right web hosting service is the very first step for those who want to build a new website. If you do not know where to start, finding one for the right price with the right set of features is close to an impossible mission.

More experienced webmasters will agree that switching hosting sites is an excruciating process-which should, if possible, be avoided at all costs. Below are the differences between Siteground and Dream Host:

SITEGROUND

This is one of the most respected web hosting service providers on the market. SiteGround is an affordable web-shared hosting plan. This plan costs $3.95 per month, supports a domain to be registered for free, an unlimited amount of web space and traffic, as well as an unlimited number of sub domains. It also allows freedom for unlimited FTP accounts with brilliant FTP management and unlimited MySQL databases.

Features

Self-installation

After registering for an account with SiteGround, you will be presented with the configuration wizard. SiteGround is proud of its in-house site configuration tool that supports a variety of blogs and CMS platforms, as well as a multitude of shopping carts and e-commerce solutions.

In addition to speeding up the initial process of setting up a website (especially, WordPress), allowing SiteGround to install the appropriate blogging software automatically brings another discrete benefit – it also updates the software/platform automatically.

CPanel

CPanel is a highly acclaimed private control panel web hosting that provides its users with the tools necessary to manage the hosting of an active website. Many web hosting services will pay extra for Cpanel; some do not even offer it. SiteGround offers for free, even with their entry-level hosting plan – and that is a blessing.

Support

And if you still have unanswered questions, Site Ground’s customer support team is available all around the clock, every day of the year through their ticketing system, by phone or by live chat.

Speed

It is common knowledge that shared accommodation is often slow. SiteGround curbs this issue by having 3 data centers on three different continents (North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific). This allows your website to load faster.

siteground Pros

  •  Unlimited disk space
  • The speed and performance is encouraging
  • 24/7 support
  • Globally oriented

siteground cons

  • Their Overall Pricing Point comes with a different cap
  • They limit disk space across all their shared plans – instead of databases or domains.

DREAMHOST

This is a well-known web host with 100% uptime. DreamHost is an award-winning company, and one of the oldest hosting companies on the market, so they are true pros when it comes to providing you with quality web hosting with loads of benefits, features and features.

This service offers shared hosting, VPS and dedicated subscriptions with a 14-day free trial period so you can explore what DreamHost has to offer before diving head-first.

A lot of great features at DreamHost

Many hosts offer unlimited features, and DreamHost is no exception – you will not have a limit on bandwidth, space, e-mail accounts, hosted domains, MySQL database 5 and lots of other options. It’s already a lot of positives, and it’s just the beginning. Other interesting technical features at DreamHost are free domain registration, compatibility with many code languages (PHP5, Perl, Python, etc.), daily statistics, one-click installation of modules, platforms and various solutions, etc.

You’ll also get $100 credit for promotional campaigns with Google AdWords. The most interesting of all the benefits is that DreamHost offers a guaranteed uptime of 100%. Just that, it beats all web hosting companies or almost, but it’s a hell of responsibility on their shoulders.

VPS / Dedicated

The majority of DreamHost users report a fluid and intuitive experience with clear navigation menus, available help buttons, and precise instructions.

 

Support

Technical support at DreamHost is perfect for advanced users, but not for novices. They get points for their Wiki and very comprehensive discussion forums, as well as a very active blog and Twitter feed. They do not offer telephone support or chat, and this is a disadvantage.

This can be frustrating, especially when you have a problem. However, they are committed to responding to your emails within 24 hours, and many users are happy with the technical support of DreamHost support.

 

Pricing

Many hosting companies have a subscription type for new accounts, and one for renewals. DreamHost is no exception but offers discounts for contracts of up to 10 years. Their shared subscription does not provide an eCommerce solution, so you’ll have to use its CafeCommerce for $30 a month.

If your site is experiencing significant growth, their subscriptions with VPS and dedicated servers will allow you not to change host. Plus, you can do a free trial for 97 days. On the other hand, if you cancel your subscription after these 97 days, you will still have to pay the “free” domain.

dreamhost Pros

  • Practical cPanel interface
  • 100% uptime guaranteed
  • Two weeks trial and guarantee satisfied or refunded for 97 days
  • Full of unlimited features
  • The possibility of growth at the same time as your business
  • Eco-friendly at the energy level

dreamhost cons

  • More expensive than others
  • No phone/live chat
  • The ECommerce subscription is not offered on shared hosting

Conclusion

If you are looking for a reliable web host with a big presence on the web Siteground is a perfect option, DreamHost is also a viable option because this site is hosted on Siteground platform. You will be disappointed if no one is on the phone or chat in case you need quick support for Dreamhost.

SiteGround is proving to be one of the best website hosts available today, with their brilliant customer support and a superb range of features. And it’s affordable too – you can start with just $ 3.95 a month with no setup fees and free domain registration.
