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
