Hostgator and Bluehost are the best two web hosting because both of them are good in performance. The sites of Hostgator are made to be hosted on the servers of Dual Xeon. Also, the data centers of the Hostgator are well equipped and are made to be connected with 10 backbone providers. Although Bluehost make use of CPU Segregation Technology to protect your website from bad users, Hostgator are investing millions of dollars every year in new as well as advanced technologies so as to provide better performance.


The downtime of the website will provide a bad experience for the visitors. Both the Hostgator as well as Bluehost will guarantee an uptime of 99.9%. To see whether it is right or not, these two sites are monitored by a tool known as Pingdom. The results showed that Hostgator had only 1 outage for 1 minute whereas the Bluehost has 11outage for 51 minutes in last seven days.

Both the Hostgator as well as Bluehost provide cPanel and is very useful for the beginners to install WordPress, Joomla, and other web scripts. Both the hosting provides top security to protect your files from hackers and viruses.

Based on these comparisons, the performance of Hostgator is better than the Bluehost and so that I have shifted from Bluehost dedicated hosting to Hostgator dedicated hosting. As per my concern, Hostgator provides much better dedicated hosting from Bluehost in every aspect in terms of security, services, response, etc. Also, your website will load in a quick manner if you choose Hostgator and also it beats Bluehost by means of better uptime, response time as well as load time.…
