In this video, I’m going to show you 3 web hosting providers that offer the lowest possible prices for web hosting and still deliver a quality and reputable service. I’ve tested these web hosting providers for more than 3 months to make sure that if you do decide to go with them you’re not sacrificing any security, speed or stability. So, let’s jump right into the results!
The cheapest stable and fast web
hosting provider and the #1 on
this list is Hostinger. Hostinger is the relatively new web hosting company that’s only started to get some popularity recently. Hostinger plans start at just 99 cents a month but I have a coupon code so if you use the links down below and enter the code hosting review you get an additional 10% off. So, that would be just 89 cents per month. By the way, more often than not you can get this plan for 72 cents. They like to change the prices from time to time but in general it’s always under $1. By the way I don’t want to be misleading and mentioned that the links down below and actually affiliate links. That means if you buy something through that link I’ll make a commission, these
commission’s simply allow me to monetize my channel without accepting ads or sponsorship deals. Because buying and maintaining a lot of web hosting
packages at the same time isn’t the cheapest of endeavors. So, get the biggest possible web hosting discounts and support my content at the same time by using the links down below and if you don’t want to do it that’s completely fine it’s up to you and now let’s get back to the actual video. 89 cents per month mean you can buy a 4 year
plan with a free SSL certificate
included for just $43. If you want a domain name that’ll cost you an additional 9 dollars per year. So, you get
everything you need to develop your website and maintain it for 4 years by spending just $52. Keep in mind, that this is only the initial price and once it’s time to renew the price jumps up dramatically. If you want to continue hosting for 4 more years it’s going to cost you $400 this time. So, for long term hosting I definitely have better solutions than Hostinger and
I’ll talk about them more later in this video. So, keep watching. In terms of performance, however, it’s much better than what you might expect from a cheap web hosting provider. Here’s a side by side loading speed comparison between Hostinger, SiteGround, and GoDaddy. I’ve done the test with the cheapest Hostinger and GoDaddy plans and I the most
expensive plan for SiteGround. Hostinger was the fastest followed by GoDaddy and then SiteGround in the third place I used it the fastest SiteGround plan just because well it was the only one I had.
But I was super interested if there’s actually a difference, a noticeable difference between a $1 hosting plan and $10 hosting plan. And surprisingly both Hostinger and GoDaddy outperformed SiteGround.
So, this just goes to show that
the most expensive option isn’t
necessarily always the best one. Hostinger offers pretty stable servers as well. They do go down once in a while for a minute here and there but I can’t really complain much. Here’s the uptime statistics from the past 3 months. All of this green bar is the time that my website was online during the three month period. And the red parts when it was offline. There was one incident where my website went down for 9 hours but aside from that, it was running smoothly pretty much all of the 3 months. Overall I’m a big
advocate for Hostinger services on this channel just because I used their services myself, I think they have a great product for a great price and their performance claims can actually be backed up by data. If you’re interested in a more in-depth look at Hostinger I’ve actually done a full review that I’ll link right here. But it doesn’t matter how much I like hosting and there’s no denying that they’re only cheap the first time around, if you’re in new customer of course they’re great but if you’re looking for the long-term
solution Hostinger is just gonna
increase the prices upon renewal to industry standard. But there are
companies that do not increase the price upon renewal and that’s my second recommendation – Interserver.
Similar to Hostinger, Interserver is a less known web hosting brand that offers some amazing deals that usually go under the radar. For the most part, Interserver has one key feature that
makes it cheaper than most other web hosting providers and that’s the price lock guarantee. Interserver plans will always cost you the same amount the price you buy their plan for is the price that is set for your account. That means if you signed up for 4 dollars per month that’s what you’ll pay until you cancel. As far as I know, they’re the only company that does this. So, that’s why it’s super beneficial to buy their plans during promotion periods. For example, during this Black Friday they had a 50% off shared web hosting plans.
So, if you buy during the promotion period it doesn’t matter that the next month there’s no promotion, your plans are still discounted…. for life. Here’s some pricing data if you buy hosting for one year and then you have to renew. I’ll be comparing plans that offer unlimited features are not the cheapest ones because Intersever only has one plan and honestly, they’re offering way too much for the price that they’re charging.
Hostinger $72 initial price, $90
renewal, total cost for 2 years $162 Interserver $54 initial price, $54 renewal total cost for 2 years $108. SiteGround however, $71 initial price $239 dollar renewal, total cost for 2 years $310 and
this is how it would look if we would add another year of renewals on top. And this gap only increases with every single year of renewals. So in my opinion, Interserver is definitely the cheapest long-term solution there is. But let’s say you only need web hosting for like a month or 2? Well, my boys at inter sever have you covered as well. You can buy just 1 month of hosting by spending only 5 dollars and renew each month if needed. Again as far as I know, they’re the only reputable web hosting company that offer monthly plans without a setup fee or an increase in price. But how’s their performance?
Well my Interserver website loads in just 0.9 seconds according to GTmetrix which is really close to the fastest web hosting provider I’ve tested this year a2hosting.
Well… last year actually. But what is more their stability is quite impressive during my monitoring period Interserver achieved a 99.994% uptime that
means that on average my website should only be down for 2 minutes every month.
Interserver also has one of the lowest average response times out of any web hosting provider I’ve tested before. Just 173 milliseconds. Other providers, usually hover at around the 500 millisecond mark.
That means that not only Interserver is fast and stable they’re consistently fast and stable. And that’s what you want from your web hosting companies
predictability. If you’re interested in a more in-depth Interserver review I’ll put it up on the screen right here. But I can’t stress enough how much I like Interserver. Not many people know about it they don’t spend much on marketing, But they really do care about the customer, they’re not money hungry and I do recommend their services. Okay, but what if you want to go with the safer choice something a bit more popular something a bit more well known?
can only recommend Bluehost. Not because they’re extremely cheap. Because in all honesty, they’re not when compared to Hostinger or InterServer. But you are able to get a discount by using the links in the description down below. And Bluehost gives you a lot of bang for your buck. Since their plans include some extra features to sweeten the deal.
Their plans start at $2.75
cents a month if you’re using the discount links below and you get a free SSL certificate and a free domain name for the first year. So, a 3-year hosting plan would cost $100 and 1 year plan would cost you $60. Out of all the mainstream web hosting choices Bluehost is definitely the cheapest one and they do offer good performance for the price that you’re paying. For example, during the speed test my Bluehost website loaded in just 0.7 seconds which is the best result from all of the
providers I’ve tested in this video and this was done with the cheapest plan.
Bluehost had an uptime of 99.949% over the last 3 months with
no big outages, only small
1 minute or less downtimes. If you want to know more about Bluehost I’ve actually done a review about them quite a while back I’ll link it right here. But for now I hope you found this video helpful and you found a web hosting solution that fits you. Without breaking the bank,
good luck making your websites and I’ll see in the next video.
