Hostinger vs Godaddy

This article will check the comparisons between Hostinger vs GoDaddy vs Hostgator vs Bluehost web hosting company features. To properly compare all of the features and offerings, we will look at everything from pricing to features, performance, security, and support. 

Compared with other web hosting providers, Hostinger is at the top in every category because It’s less expensive, much faster, and far more liberal with its plans. 

There are the following categories to compare between Hostinger and GoDaddy web hosting: 

01 Performance:

Hostinger’s infrastructure is higher than GoDaddy’s. GoDaddy Can’t Compete with Hostinger because GoDaddy is one of the few web hosts that still use HDD storage rather than the newer (and faster) SSDs. 

GoDaddy uses the older Apache web server, while Hostinger has LiteSpeed, which is significantly faster and more stable. Hosting and GoDaddy allow choosing from multiple data centres, but GoDaddy does not give more information about its locations.

Using Hostinger, you can host your website in the US, Brazil, the UK, the Netherlands, Lithuania, Indonesia, and Singapore. 

GoDaddy says it has servers in North America, Europe, and Asia but provides no further details. 

Regarding website caching, GoDaddy mostly shams that it doesn’t exist. Perhaps the marketing team feels that if they do not mention “caching” anywhere on the website, people will not know that it is missing. 

 But Hostinger includes LiteSpeed caching on all plans, even the entry-level Single, and you can quickly turn it on from the dashboard to improve your website loading speeds.  

Hostinger has superior performance because after testing Hostinger and GoDaddy for several months, GoDaddy’s average page loading time on GTmetrix was an appalling 2.94 seconds, with a best recorded time of 2.2 seconds and Hostinger average page loading time of 1.56 seconds.

 GoDaddy’s horrible loading speeds make it very unwanted. 

Overall, Hostinger is better than GoDaddy when it comes to performance. 

02 Plans and Pricing:

Both offer services in a range of web hosting, including VPS, shared hosting and managed WordPress. Hostinger and GoDaddy are best known for their shared hosting plans. 

GoDaddy gives more storage space and unmetered bandwidth, but the 30GB of storage and 100GB of bandwidth with the Hostinger Single plan are more than enough for a small Website.

Both give one email address on the entry-level plan, but with GoDaddy, there’s a trap:  email is free for the first year but will pay after that. And GoDaddy will not ask you if you want to restore the email – you’ll be charged customarily until the end of the first year unless you remember to cancel the membership.  

Regarding configured WordPress hosting, Hostinger is less expensive and gives you more features.

Note:– When you purchase web hosting, Hostinger offers a free domain name for all the premium plans for the 1st one year, and GoDaddy also offer a free domain name for some plan for the 1st one year. 

03 Features:

Hostinger and GoDaddy claim that their shared hosting plans are applicable for beginners, but GoDaddy Has More Storage Space, and Hostinger Has Better Tools. 

Hostinger and GoDaddy offer one-click installation for all content management systems (CMS), including WordPress. But Hostinger gives the accessible version of the Jetpack plugin already installed on most managed WordPress plans, including various security features for WordPress, automatic updates for your plugins, added caching, and different themes. 

Hostinger says SSH access is not included on the Single plan, so you’ll have to upgrade to Premium if you’re a Linux dev. Even if they go with the Premium, they will be paying only half the price of GoDaddy’s less expensive plan.

Git is pre-installed on all Hostinger plans, which does not matter with GoDaddy. Git is primarily a tool for developers, but even if you are a beginner, you can track changes on your website or add collaborators.

04 Security:

GoDaddy is one of the only large web hosts that does not give a free SSL certificate on all plans. Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates are accessible by default, but as an alternative to giving you one of those, GoDaddy makes you pay extra for its SSL or upgrade to the Maximum plan. GoDaddy also has essential DDoS protection and a 24/7 monitoring system, but that’s all you get for free. 

Hostinger not only gives you an SSL certificate on all plans but you also get automated weekly backups, Cloudflare protection and BitNinja security. This protects your website from DDoS attacks, malware, and brute-force attacks. 

You need an SSL certificate to encrypt users’ information on your website. Without SSL, your website and users are insecure, and search engines will penalize you for this. In GoDaddy web Hosting, if you want malware scanned and removed, you must pay extra for SiteLock. If you want automated backups, then you pay again.

05 Support:

Hostinger and GoDaddy both offer 24/7 customer support. Hostinger has live chat and email, and GoDaddy has live chat and phone. GoDaddy is better than Hostinger in Support Management. GoDaddy took significantly less time to respond, and Hostinger took about 40 minutes on average.
