Web Hosting Hub vs GoDaddy (Jan 2018)

This comparison between Web Hosting Hub and GoDaddy will be particularly interesting to bloggers. Web Hosting Hub is an excellent choice for bloggers that need a good all-around web hosting plan. You can choose from three levels (Spark, Nitro, and Dynamo) depending on the amount of resources you need and the number of websites you need to create. GoDaddy has one of the largest selections of web hosting plans for all types of website owners.

Web Hosting Hub and GoDaddy both provide cPanel which is a great start. Also, you get unlimited space and bandwidth (except for GoDaddy’s Economy plan which is limited). I’ve found website setup to be equally easy at both Hub and GoDaddy. Going a step further, Web Hosting Hub will also preinstall WordPress when you place your order—making things even easier if you’re a WordPress blogger.

We’ve experienced good website performance from each of these web hosts. However, I would give the edge to Web Hosting Hub—where your hosting plan includes solid state drives. And with Web Hosting Hub’s Nitro and Dynamo plans, you can choose your data center location, which can lead to even faster site performance. We also like the 90 day money back guarantee period provide by Hub as opposed to GoDaddy’s standard 30 day policy.

In the past, GoDaddy’s customer support has received some criticism. However, we’ve found that in recent times their support has been very good. But, in terms of customer support response time and overall support categories, I would rate Web Hosting Hub above GoDaddy.

If you use GoDaddy for your domain name management, it’s often convenient to also purchase your hosting there. For some people, having all of their website business at one location is easier and preferable. On the other hand, you might be surprised to find out that it’s actually very easy to have your domains at GoDaddy and purchase your web hosting elsewhere. You can then just point your domains at GoDaddy to your other web hosting company (by changing the Nameservers). I’ve done this many times.

Overall, in this comparison I would give Web Hosting Hub the edge when it comes to web hosting—especially for WordPress bloggers.
