Hostinger Vs SiteGround: A Head-to-Head Comparison

If you are planning to launch a website or an ecommerce store, it’s important to choose a web hosting company that is reliable, performs well, and is budget-friendly all at the same time. However, finding such company is always a challenge.

Not all the big names can offer the right set of choices to choose from. That’s why it’s crucial to do a bit of research and choose the hosting that fits your web-hosting requirements.

In this article, we have conducted a head to head comparison of two well-known names from the web hosting industry, i.e., Hostinger and SiteGround. Let’s see how their premium plans stand on different aspects of web hosting.

Disclaimer – In order to make this article more accurate, I’ve used a few Hostinger and SiteGround reviews as a source for comparing the two of them.

Hopefully, this comparison will help you out the right hosting provider for you.

Pricing

Pricing is an important factor everyone considers before selecting a web hosting. Here is the price comparison of Hostinger and SiteGround:

Hostinger charges $3.49/month for its premium package while SiteGround’s first-month price for same is $5.95 that also excludes set-up charges. On the other hand, when we compare the price in the extended period length of 3 months, we see SiteGround does not have 3 months plan while Hostinger charges $26.52 for the same.

Moreover, when we compare their premium plans for 36 months, we find Hostinger is exceptionally cheaper than SiteGround.  SiteGround fee for 36 months is $214.20 while Hostinger charges $138.24 only,

SiteGround is not only expensive but also not flexible enough on the packages front. There is no option for users who might be looking for 3 months or 6-month package.

It is easy to observe through this comparison that Hostinger is the cheaper option but also gives various options on pricing.

Uptime

A single downtime in a day can have a considerable effect on your earnings and website reputation. This will not only make users stop visiting your websites but also hits your company’s reputation. Whether you are a  multinational corporation or an amateur blogger, 100% uptime of website is important for everyone.

Luckily, both Hostinger and SiteGround provide 100% uptime. However, in the long run, you may experience negligible downtime with SiteGround.

Speed

Just like other features, speed is crucial to your website. It is one of the major elements that determine that your site’s user experience is on the top of the game. When users visit your ecommerce store or website, they expect it to load within a second or two.

However, if your website does not load quickly, no matter how elegant or feature-rich your website is, the user will abandon your site in no time.

When we compare the response time of both Hostinger and SiteGround, we find that Hostinger is speedier than SiteGround. Hostinger’s response time is 88ms while SiteGround is 464 ms, which is more than 5 times that of Hostinger.

Customer Support

Customer support can bag any company a big win and hosting industry is no exception to that. Along with pricing, speed, and uptime, it is important that you receive adequate customer support anytime you require.

Being a website owner, you must have access to a customer support team that is willing and competent enough to provide you necessary help and fixes the technical issues in case you need any.

Here is the comparison of customer support of Hostinger and SiteGround.

Hostinger Customer Support

Hostinger provides 24/7 Live Chat Support system. This live support system is accessible no matter where you are on their website.

Moreover, their response time is quite fast. You don’t need to wait too long for your queries to be answered.  Additionally, users may access customer support by filling their ‘General Inquiry Forms.’ If you need any help with basic stuff like setting up an ecommerce store or fixing basic technical troubles, you can check out their tutorials as well.n

SiteGround Customer Support

SiteGround has an equally prompt and reliable customer support that will not keep you waiting. Along with Live Chat Support and ticketing system, it also provides 24/7 support on the phone which is a plus point.

In fact, SiteGround is particularly famous for their support. You can blindly trust on the Siteground representatives to help you out whenever you need it.

Conclusion

Out of this quick comparison of Hostinger and Siteground, it is clear that Hostinger is the overall better option than SiteGround. Moreover, it comes with various features that are important for the smooth running of any website.  When you compare price, speed, uptime, and features of Hostinger with SiteGround you get a clear picture of both web hosting companies.

I do believe that both Siteground and Hostinger are some of the best web hosting solutions currently offered, but when it comes to value Hostinger has the edge as it has more features for a smaller price tag.
