Siteground

Per month

  • Their restrictions are transparent; they restrict CPU minutes, script executions and storage
  • They frequently update hardware and all shared accounts use SSDs; they’re also relatively cheap
  • They offer HTTP/2 and fantastic customer service; they’ve got good uptime but there’s no free domain

Great on features, uptime and cost; average on response time and they don't offer a free domain

Bluehost

Per month

  • No uptime guarantee and poor customer service
  • Excellent uptime and response time
  • Cheaper to renew than a lot of web host

No uptime guarantee, poor customer service but excellent performance

Host Papa

Per month

  • Their admin panel is in an iframe; it feels constricted
  • They’re about average on price but customer service is poor
  • Their money back guarantee is 48 hours for pay monthly customers

Poor average uptime but acceptable customer service. They charge a premium for automated backups.

iPage

Per month

  • They’re cheap – $35.88 per year
  • They claim to offer ‘unlimited bandwidth’ but we’re not convinced.
  • They do support HTTP/2 (but there’s nothing on their website about it)

A very cheap host with poor response time and limited features
