Bluehost VS eBoundHost

Bluehost VS eBoundHost

Bluehost and eBoundHost offer reliable service, many add-on features and good quality web hosting services for your money. Trying to choose which company to go with for web hosting services may be rather difficult but in comparison one comes out slightly ahead of the other.

Pricing

Bluehost is offering robust hosting for only $6.95 a month. Each account comes with a lot of unlimited features, a free domain name, a site promotion package and much more.

eBoundHost stocks its accounts with the same unlimited features, plenty of extras to choose from and backs up every account with a 90 day money back guarantee – and they do it all for only $3.95.

Products and Services

Bluehost does one thing and does it well. The company has put all its efforts in simply offering its customers web hosting accounts. While some may see this as limiting, what this allows Bluehost to excel at is concentrating on giving the very best hosting service possible and being there for hosting clients when support is needed.

In addition to web hosting, eBoundHost offers Virtual Private Server hosting, dedicated hosting and a very nice affiliate program. The hosting company offers VPS hosting as low as $25.99 a month and dedicated hosting for $99 a month. Most hosting companies that offer affiliate programs only pay for new web hosting customers that affiliates bring in. With eBoundHost affiliates are paid for any VPS and dedicated customers as well, allowing for a very nice profit.

Web Hosting Features

eBoundHost hosting accounts allow for unlimited web sites per account, have unlimited amounts of bandwidth, web space and email accounts and the hosting company tosses in a free domain with every account as well. Customers can choose from several free scripts that include Coppermine, Ikonboard and WordPress among others. Each account receives a free SEO consultation and search engine submission. As an added, all accounts receive $50 to use toward Yahoo advertising.

Each Bluehost account comes with unlimited disk storage, unlimited amounts of hosted domains, unlimited bandwidth and a seemingly never-ending list of more unlimited features. Web hosting customers can choose between MySQL and PostgreSQL databases, can opt to have FrontPage extensions enabled, and can easily use any PHP, Python or Ruby on Rails scripting as each account is equipped with the proper scripting language.

Customer Service

eBoundHost’s help center offers an extensive FAQ section, online manuals and an email form to contact the hosting support team. However, this area seems to be severely lacking in comparison to what Bluehost offers.

Bluehost’s help center is rather extensive and includes a ticket support system, a knowledge base, video tutorials and more. The toll-free support number is listed and the hosting company offers live chat support which is great for those needing immediate assistance.

Recommendations

While both eBoundHost and Bluehost offer nearly identical deals for the same price, when it comes to more support options, Bluehost is the clear winner. However, if price is your primary concern, eBoundHost offers substantial savings.
