As more websites are being created online, more web hosting providers also spawn here and there. Some offer website visitors high value for a competitive price, while others offer steep prices for a more complete set of features. To give you a glimpse of the possible options that you can choose for your own website.

HostGator

This is, I think, the most popular of them all, probably because it has all the machinery and resource to spend money on commercials and advertisements online. Its revenue has reached $34 million in the last ten years. Being founded in 2002 by Brent Oxley, it has grown to become one of the most recognizable companies online in terms of web hosting.

Some of the services that the company provides are shared hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated hosting, and reseller hosting. You can expect a lot more from this website hosting company as it tries to acquire more of its competition in the next years. You can use the other services provided by the company to get cheap website traffic.

GoDaddy

This company started as an internet domain registration service provider. I can still remember the first time I created a personal website using a domain that I registered through this company. They are known to provide an easy interface for beginners to establish their very own website in a matter of minutes.

In the past ten years, GoDaddy has been buying a lot of companies like Outright, Media Temple, Locu, Host Europe Group, Sucuri, and Mad Mimi, just to name a few. It has also received numerous awards like Exceptional Customer Service, Gold Stevie Award, and Best Places to Work in the Valley.

BlueHost

Another popular web hosting company which a lot of companies are leaning on is BlueHost. It is owned by the Endurance International Group. This hosting service has more than a million websites under its belt in 2018.

Originally established by the Matt Heaton in 1996, the company has moved on and was purchased by Endurance International Group. The company has had its ups and downs, particularly an incident wherein it took down a website because of complaints regarding the content. It was also hacked in 2015.

    Some other web hosting services that I can think of are Wix, Tshohost, iPage, and A Small Orange. Beginners can be enticed by the popular web hosting sites around and not give smaller companies a chance. Read reviews of other sites and see if they provide more value for a lesser price.

    You should not just look at popularity of sites but also the different features that they provide. Some web hosting services are definitely cheaper than others but they provide less value to their customers. Some have higher costs but give the clients more security in their information. Be sure not to rely on just the price in choosing the right web hosting for your site.

    These are all popular sites that are all made known to customers because of extensive advertisements and commercials on different social media platforms. I cannot add more web hosting providers on the list that can give more value for money. It is better to create another article for some other sites.
