The Winner for pricing is Greengeeks. You might think why?

Because Greengeeks provides a blazing fast loading speed than Bluehost for sure. And Greengeeks has free Nightly Backups in all their plans. But in Bluehost, there is no free backups plan in basic and their plus plan.  

So, if you need a free backup, you should invest in their Choice plus plan and their pro plan. The price of the Choice plus plan is $5.45/month and the same renews at $18.99/Month.  

Bluehost choice plus plan will provide free automated backups for the first year only. If you need backup services for the upcoming years, then you need to invest more money.

And Bluehost’s price is very higher than Greengeeks. And even Bluehost has a slow loading speed issue also.

So, think twice before going to Bluehost.

Pricing Winner: Greengeeks

Greengeeks Vs Bluehost Final Verdict

Both Greengeeks and Bluehost are the best web hosting companies. They are providing valuable services for the customers.  

Bluehost has a very old speed technology on its servers. And Bluehost has a loading speed issues from a very long back.  

This loading speed problem will lead to spending your money on caching and speed optimization plugins like WP Rocket ($59/year) or W3 Total Cache.

This is one of the reasons why I do not recommend Bluehost for my readers.

But if you need a web host with a limited budget + good loading speed servers with latest technologies, then I honestly recommend my readers to switch to Greengeeks.

Once again, I am also one of the happy customers of Greengeeks. So, Greengeeks will not disappoint you at any cost.
