THIS LINK   about HostGator Managed WordPress Hosting provides the following details about the number of visitors per month for each plan under WordPress hosting:

  • Starter Plan-100k visitors
  • Standard Plan- 200k visitors
  • Business Plan- 500k visitors

Please if I’m wrong, I would like to be corrected. Thanks.

WA prices have not changed for more than 10 years. This has not been the case with HostGator. For the current discounts, some of them will expire in January 2018, while the majority would expire in September 2018.

Pricing is very flexible with HostGator. This makes it very difficult to draw up a reliable budget and stick to it. Check out the screenshot below from HostGator which corroborates what I mean;

 

HostGator VS Wealthy Affiliate

 

 

3CMT 3

 

==> Special note related to Wealthy Affiliate

WA does not really have any specific limits per se and saying “unlimited” is the biggest ploy in the industry because any host that says this usually has very low limits and will cut you off or force you into a more expensive plan.

WA can support all the traffic that you need to get to your website. However, If you are hosting “videos” on your website, which you should never do by the way (you should always host videos off-site), that would be the ONLY TIME you would run into bandwidth/load issues.

 

==> Special note related to HOSTGATOR

Conditions are actually attached to the word ‘unmetered’ for HostGator. You can find more at HostGator’s site.

 

==> Conclusion

A bandwidth can never really be unlimited. HostGator did not specify their exceptions, unlike Wealthy Affiliate.

 

4CMT 4

HostGator provides Full Redundancy for only the cloud hosting packages. Nothing was mentioned about WORDPRESS HOSTING

 

5CMT 5

 

WA

WA provides 7 days to have access to premium activities and features and to decide whether to engage or not. You can decide to remain a free member for life and have access to 2 free websites and some training materials. After the first 7 days, your premium access will be terminated.

Unlike HostGator that offers 45 days money back guarantee, WA does not collect any money from you during your first 7 days. If you decide to go premium after those 7 days, your deposit for the premium membership is nonrefundable, because you had the possibility of using the product before deciding whether to purchase it.

Again, after the first seven days, you can still decide to remain a free member for life with WA.

 

HostGator

You cannot try HostGator for free, that’s why you have up to 45 days following your deposit of subscription fees, to request a refund if you ever decide to change your mind.

 

 6CMT 6

 

Pricing for this Private SSL is based on 1 year as opposed to others which respect the 3-year pricing plan period. WA does not offer dedicated IPs.

Visit HostGator source at http://support.hostZZZgator.com/articles/ssl-certificates/billing-portal-ssl-certificates for prices.

NB

This site is not secure, so I will not be linking this address directly to my website. If you want to visit this link, click on it. When a new window opens, remove the triple ZZZ between HOST and GATOR and press ENTER.

 

Update 08/05/2018

HostGator now offers free SSL with their WordPress hosting packages.

Visit this link: HostGator Source for domain privacy prices.

 

8CMT 8

 

Visit HostGator Source for SiteLock pricing. This feature is however included free of charge in the WordPress Hosting packages.

VISIT THIS LINK to see more details about this amazing keyword tool that Wealthy Offers free of charge to her premium members. Jaaxy was recently integrated into the Wealthy Affiliate platform on the 12/12/2017. It’s one of the new trending features at WA right now.

 

Even if you don’t see the need for one, you will eventually seriously blame yourself for not deciding to get one sooner than later. This tool is worth $49/month. WA offers the Lite version free of charge to her premium members, which grants access to unlimited keyword research, and 100 free searches for site rankings in Google, Yahoo, and Bing.

#2. HG VS WA– 1 YEAR PLAN-MONTHLY TOTAL COST

 

SOME IMPORTANT POINTS TO NOTE

Let’s now get down to figures, one of the most important factors in decision making. It’s time to take a closer look at what each provider will cost us for the first month.

Before we delve into this comparative analysis, I need you to understand some key facts:

 

==>

 

Wealthy Affiliate, on the one hand,  is a master of Managed WordPress hosting and specializes only in WordPress Hosting ALONE. Because of this, they have succeeded to leverage their unique wealth of experience and provided an extensive range of essential products, all in one single package, and at an amazingly affordable cost. The user experience is taken to a different level altogether.

 

==>

 

HostGator, on the other hand, has broken down web hosting into several different individual packages and tagging each package with a price. This makes the different packages very complementary to each other, making it impossible for you to choose one package without completing with a second package. For example, HostGator provides domains with their Web Hosting Package, and websites with their WordPress Hosting Package. Considering the fact that you need both a domain and a website to set up a fully operational website, YOU ARE AUTOMATICALLY COMPELLED TO PURCHASE BOTH THE WEB HOSTING AND THE WORDPRESS HOSTING PACKAGES. You must choose a series of packages to have an enhanced online experience and peace of mind. This implies HostGator practices some Upselling and Cross-Selling, making it extremely and insanely expensive for newbies and experts online.

 

 

==>

 

To get a complete picture of HostGator and compare to Wealthy Affiliate (which provides virtually all services in just one package), I have decided to compare only the WordPress hosting services for both HostGator and Wealthy Affiliate.

 

That said, let’s get to business

1NOTE 1

 

It is important to note here that HostGator offers up to 6 different WordPress hosting packages: 1 site, 2 sites, 3 sites, 5 sites, 10 sites and 20 sites. Information is not readily available with respect to the last 3 packages. It would appear you have to make a special call for anything beyond 3 sites.

The comparison with WA would have been much fairer, had it been cost details for HostGator 20 sites were available, since the former offers up to 25 WordPress hosting sites and 25 subdomains. The last time I checked the prices for HostGator 20 sites, it was somewhere around $92 /mo. And just a few minutes later, that option to interrogate the various prices beyond 3 sites had disappeared.

 

2NOTE 2

 

Not until recently, HostGator used to charge extra for SSL Certificates, but now they have been included free of charge in the WordPress hosting packages, as well as daily automatic backup of websites and SiteLock.

Domain Privacy Protection, on the other hand still remains a feature to be paid for, in order to keep all your domain details private.

 

3NOTE 3

 

Wealthy Affiliate offers a maximum term of 1 year, whereas HostGator extends up t 3 years. For the purposes of this comparative analysis, only the 1 year te1-year both hosting services will be compared.
