BlueHost vs. PronetHosting

BlueHost vs. PronetHosting

Reliability is everything these days and it is a must to find a host that can provide it. BlueHost and PronetHosting fit the bill, two world-class hosting companies with plenty of experience in the business. Both have proven their ability to deliver a quality service but which is right for your web presence? This comparison aims to provide some valuable insight.

Pricing

One thing you can count on with BlueHost and Pronet is a dependable service that comes at a great price. BlueHost’s regular price has always been at only $6.95 per month. PronetHosting is playing in the same ballpark with a popular introductory package as low as $4.95 per month. As you can see, the cost of service is very comparable so unless you are trying to save every penny, price may not be such an issue.

Products and Services

BlueHost does not give you much to choose from in terms of variety. The company has a single plan that is very powerful, but simply cannot suit the needs of all customers. In this regard, Pronet has greater appeal with services that include shared hosting on Linux and Windows servers, dedicated servers, reseller accounts and domain name registration. It also offers a number of additional products such as SSL certificates, e-commerce services, marketing solutions and domain name privacy.

Web Hosting Features

Neither BlueHost or PronetHosting go light in the feature department. You get unlimited disk space and bandwidth, FrontPage support, database administration tools and unlimited FTP user accounts. You also have the ability to run your own custom cron jobs and create a dynamic, data-driven website with technologies such as PHP, Perl and Ruby. Both hosts provide cPanel so you are sure to have an easy to time maintaining your website. This control panel was made with the beginner to intermediate webmaster in mind, allowing you to conveniently access your essential hosting features from a well organized, easy navigable interface. Whether it’s creating email accounts, managing domains or installing add-on programs, cPanel is the tool that makes it all happen.

Customer Service

BlueHost and PronetHosting are both solid in the support department but there are some vast differences. BlueHost offers top-notch support via toll-free phone, live chat, email and support ticket. It also has online documentation for you to browse through as well as video tutorials. Pronet has most of these options but lacks phone support. While this company has shown that it is committed to the customer, this could prove to be a disadvantage in the long run.

Recommendations

BlueHost and PronetHosting are two companies we highly recommend. Both can set you up with solid web hosting for a price that is more than reasonable. However, Pronet’s lack of phone support could be a glaring issue so if you absolutely need it, BlueHost is the obvious choice.
