Summary

Admittedly, Hostgator quality has dropped ever since they were sold to EIG. But we think their new plan - Hostgator Cloud Hosting is here to change that. The new cloud plan (we switched in 2017) is reliable, reasonable priced, and relatively simple to setup. We recommend Hostgator Cloud Hosting and think they are particular right for bloggers who want a simple host.

Hostinger has a strong worldwide localized office. You can start to host your website with a free hosting. Hostinger has what it takes from a beginner risk-free option to advance VPS cloud infrastructure. Hostinger is definitively the place to kick start your online presence. Especially for those who prefer localized service.
