Bluehost vs. Easyspace

Bluehost vs. Easyspace

Bluehost is a giant in the web hosting industry with roots dating back to 1996. Through the years they have honed their service offering to sell just a single plan at a spectacular price. With millions of websites on the books and more coming in at about 20,000 per month, it is easy to see why Bluehost has one of the largest market shares.

Easyspace is a UK based company with founding roots back to 1997. Since then they have become one of Europe’s largest domain registrar as well as one of the largest web hosting companies in the UK. With a long list of extra products and services and rock bottom prices, it is also easy to see why Easyspace is a contender with Bluehost.

Thus, which one would you choose? We compare these West and East hemisphere companies and give you our analysis below.

Pricing

Bluehost makes pricing easy at just $5.95 per month for their plan. $19.95 a month will get clients their “Pro” plan with a little more CPU power and other extra features.

Easyspace offers web hosting in four great plans starting with the “Pic ‘n’ Mix” plan for $3.68/mo, the “Starter” hosting for $4.89/mo, the “Starter Plus” for $6.53/mo, and “Business Hosting” for $13.07/mo (all in USD).

Products and Services

Bluehost keeps their focus on a simple and easy plan loaded with almost all the features a small or medium sized business would need in one plan. They do not offer a lot of “extra” products or services, but back up their plan with a 99.9% uptime guarantee, and a full refund any time clients wish to ask for it.

Easyspace is one of those hosts that want to help any size client succeed with their website. They offer additional scalable hosting options such as dedicated hosting, email hosting, and eCommerce hosting. They offer professional web design, and additional domain services.

Web Hosting Features

The Bluehost plan is packed with features including unlimited bandwidth, server storage space, email accounts, and hosted domains. The plan comes with support for many of the popular scripting languages as well as popular 3rd party software plugins availability. They support multi-media files, and offer free eCommerce solutions.

All Easyspace plans come with unlimited bandwidth, but generous limitations on storage space and email accounts. Limited MySQL databases are only available with the StarterPlus and Business hosting plans. All the latest scripts are available including shopping cart software options.

Customer Service

Bluehost has US-based 24 hour support via telephone, chat, and email. And their online knowledgebase has answers to almost any question for self-helpers.

The Easyspace online help center is only available to clients so no public or common information is available to review. Clients can contact Easyspace by “all the usual channels: telephone, fax, and post.” However no contact hours are provided.

Recommendations

Easyspace certainly has a suitable web hosting plan for any UK business, but probably not suitable for US-based companies. Our recommendation goes to Bluehost for their outstanding single all-inclusive plan that meets almost every small to medium business website need.
