Amazon Web Services vs Bluehost: Not Even a Contest [2024]

Bluehost ranks high in reviews thanks to its generous affiliate program, but it doesn’t have what it takes to go up against Amazon Web Services (AWS), let alone win. I love an underdog as much as the next person, but in this case, AWS is simply better. Bluehost might seem more user-friendly, but AWS has a great option for beginners: Amazon Lightsail. Lightsail is easy to...

8 Best E-Commerce Hosting Providers: Ultimate Guide for 2024

A lot of hosts make big claims about their specialized ‘e-commerce hosting’ – but often, when you take a closer look, what they’re really doing is rebranding regular shared hosting plans.

Cloudways vs AWS: What’s the Best Cloud Host in 2024?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) may be the biggest player in the cloud hosting industry, but this doesn’t make it the best for everyone.

GoDaddy also offers Windows hosting, but I was dubious about whether...
