WordPress actually has a forum which is live 24/7 and free to join. Even though their forum features are very limited, at least available forum provides a milieu for clients hosting with WordPress to meet and discuss their challenges and ask for help.

This is a big plus for WordPress.com because in general, very few WordPress hosts actually include forums in the WordPress hosting packages.

Unlike WordPress, Bluehost offers phone support as well, in addition to the other support features. Make sure to always verify the effectiveness of these features to make sure that quality support is provided by the humans behind these support portals.

It turns out that Bluehost offers more support channels, and that’s the reason why they scored all 5 points.

None of these platforms offers a WordPress compatible website builder. This particular feature is quite rare with hosting platforms online as I’ve come across only 5 platforms that actually include it in their WordPress hosting packages.

Both WordPress and Bluehost lost 5 points here.

With WordPress.com, you cannot try a premium package for free. However, you have a money back guarantee period of 30 days to take advantage of. In addition, there is a possibility to signup for a lifetime free WordPress hosting account.

This is the reason why WordPress has an overall score of 7/15.

As far as Bluehost is concerned, just like WordPress, you don’t have the possibility to try premium package for free, but you can make use of your money back guarantee period of 30 days as well. Unfortunately, no free accounts are available here, landing Bluehost a score of only 2/15.

Check out the table below to see how scores were distributed:

It’s important to note that only CLOUDWAYS and WAHOSTING offer a free trial of their premium packages. CLOUDWAYS offers 3 days, while WAHOSTING offers 7. In addition, only WORDPRESS and WAHOSTING offer the possibility of signing up for a free WordPress account for life. WORDPRESS will give you one subdomain while WAHOSTING will give 2.

While Bluehost does not offer any free training resources, WordPress offers about 100 of them as seen on the table above. WordPress has a team of Experts known as Happiness Engineers that take care of live classes every week. Please make sure to confirm this frequency. Well not bad for WordPress at all.

With Bluehost, all their training resources are paid for, as only technical hosting services are available free of charge. If you want to check out the list of WordPress hosting companies including training in their hosting packages, FOLLOW THIS LINK.

Both platforms offer 1 free domain for the first year only, and renewal will take place at the prices mentioned on the table above. With WordPress, prices will vary according to the domain extension. Don’t forget to confirm any prices you find in this article.

Other platforms offer free domains for the first year as well, but I advise that you thoroughly go through the free domain conditions and be sure you are comfortable with them because most of the conditions are very sneaky, with the main risk being the possibility of renewing at an exorbitant price during the second year.

Be smart.

If you decide to host with WordPress, be prepared to pay extra for your email boxes, as these are not included with their hosting package. Bluehost, on the other hand, offers the possibility to create free unlimited email accounts, just like a couple of other WordPress hosting platforms.

Bluehost has landed another set of 5 points under this criterion.

Comparing the security of WordPress to Bluehost is like comparing daytime to night time. WordPress is lacking only in the availability of a staging environment, as they do not include one in their hosting packages.

With Bluehost on the contrary, you literally have to take care of everything related to the security of your website. No free domain privacy, no additional layer of security on your websites, no free spam experts, even their backup solution is very unreliable, and they themselves tell you that all they provide is a courtesy backup, and then propose their CODEGUARD solution, and to crown it all, no full redundancy available.

The presence of full redundancy is reasonable proof that your website will be accessible all round the clock. Unfortunately, Bluehost does not provide this assurance. Several WordPress hosting platforms have taken the security of their client’s websites to the next level. Bluehost still got a lot to do with this regard.

Bluehost has solidified their position and made a difference when it came to speed. They have implemented an NGINX architecture as well as CDN to boost the speed of their clients’ websites. This is a plus for Bluehost this time around. The availability of these features implies that your website speed would be acceptable if you decide to host with Bluehost.

But when it comes to WordPress speed booster, I have serious doubts. They do have a CDN known as Photon but implemented only to boost the speed of media files only. This measure is not sufficient and had it not been that they had at least thought of the speed of their media files, WordPress would have scored a zero for speed.

When it comes to Bluehost, I’m not comfortable with the fact that I’d have to take care of the security of my website, thereby inflating my budget. It should have been included in their hosting package.

With regards to WordPress, their overall performance if far more encouraging, with their security being top notch, as seen on my comparative tables.

But I have one main problem with WordPress: THEY OFFER ONLY 1 WEBSITE! All those features included in their WordPress packages, only for 1 website. That notwithstanding, if you are looking to host a very short-term project, or some activity not requiring much storage and high levels of traffic, then I would recommend that you go with WordPress instead.

 

Use the table above to either visit complete reviews of both platforms or go to respective sites.

 

 

ONE MORE THING. I FOUND AN AFFORDABLE PLATFORM FOR BOTH SHORT AND LONG TERM PROJECTS, WITH TOP NOTCH SECURITY, THE POSSIBILITY TO HOST AT 25 WEBSITES, AND ADDITIONAL FEATURES WORTH AT LEAST $1 500 /MONTH, A PERFECT ALTERNATIVE FOR WP ENGINE:
