Market Study: How Much to Pay for a Web Host?

hosting prices based on our market study (2018)

Hosting prices have changed drastically over the last 10 to 15 years.

In early 2000, a $8.95/mo package with basic features was considered cheap. Then the price dropped to $7.95/mo, then $6.95/mo, $5.95/mo, and lower.

We studied recent market trends and found that:

  • On average, hosting companies charge $4.84/mo for 24-month subscription (based on stats from 372 companies).
  • U.S.-based hosting companies charge $5.05/mo on their cheapest plans.
  • Rushed servers (overcrowded servers), slow support, and expensive renewal fees are some of the more common problems associated with cheap hosting.

In case you are looking for a cheap web host...
