Monthly prices

  • With web hosts, the advertised “monthly” price is rarely the price you pay;
  • Rather, you only qualify for the monthly rate if you pay 12, 24 or 36 months in advance;
  • Listed below are actual monthly prices; if they don’t accept monthly payments, we don’t list the price.

Compare hosts

We compare 18 web hosts against 56 metrics, including monthly and annual pricing and bandwidth, CPU, read/write, storage and database restrictions.

Monthly prices

Listed below are tables outlining:

  • Can you pay monthly?: this comparison details which hosts actually allow you to pay monthly for their cheapest packages (many don’t);
  • Monthly prices: this comparison details the monthly cost of each web host’s cheapest package (web hosts that don’t accept monthly payments are marked “N/A”);
  • Advertised monthly cost: this comparison details the advertised price for their cheapest hosting package (you only typically qualify for this price if you’re willing to pay 36 months in advance);

What’s missing?

  • Setup fees: many web hosts charge you a setup fee if you want to pay monthly. You can compare setup fees using our comparison table;
  • Trial costs: some web host offer a discount for the first month of activity e.g. A2 Hosting charges $4.90 for the first month and $9.99 for each subsequent month.

Many web hosts advertise monthly prices but don’t actually allow you to pay monthly. For example, GoDaddy advertises its “Economy” package at $2.99 per month however to qualify for that rate you have to pay 36 months in advance.

The problem with paying monthly is it often means paying significantly more (at least in the first year).

For example, GreenGeeks charges $9.95 per month for its “EcoStarter” package however you can purchase a 12 month subscription for the same package for $59.40 (this price increases significantly in year two).

If you pay monthly, GreenGeeks will also charge you a $15 setup fee.
