Nestify’s WordPress plans may seem similar to Hostinger’s WordPress plans. But apart from one being a managed and another an unmanaged plan, there are other differences too. I tested both these hosting providers for features, performance, pricing, security, and support. I find Hostinger doing better on the whole than Nestify.

1. Plans and Pricing
More plan variety and better long-term prices help Hostinger win
Hostinger offers almost everything from shared and WordPress hosting to cloud hosting and VPS. In contrast, Nestify only specializes in managed WordPress and WooCommerce hosting and offers WordPress and WooCommerce VPS plus cloud hosting plans.
Hostinger’s unmanaged WordPress hosting plans are much cheaper than Nestify’s managed WordPress plans. However, you’ll have to choose the longest term (quadrennial) to get these low prices. Nestify doesn’t ask for a long-term commitment though. If you would rather choose the monthly term, even the cheapest Hostinger WordPress plan would cost almost 1.33 times the cheapest managed Nestify plan. Hostinger’s cloud hosting plans are a lot cheaper than Nestify’s managed cloud WordPress plans.
Hostinger gives you a 30-day money-back guarantee. With its managed WordPress VPS plans, Nestify offers a 7-day free trial and a 60-day money-back guarantee.
Hostinger Web Hosting
Nestify loses out to Hostinger as the latter offers more variety in its plans and better prices with long-term commitment.
Hostinger wins, thanks to its better resource allocation and user-friendly features
Hostinger’s unmanaged WordPress plans let you host unlimited websites and come with 20GB-140GB disk space, unlimited bandwidth, weekly/daily automated backups, lifetime free SSL certificate, LiteSpeed Web Server, LSCWP cache plugin, SSDs, free Cloudflare CDN (with the 2 higher plans), free migration, Jetpack plugin (free to premium, depending on the plan), and SEO toolkit (as a paid add-on).
Nestify’s managed WordPress VPS plans offer unlimited WordPress installs, 1-8 CPUs, 2GB-32GB RAM, and 10GB SSD-120GB SSD storage. You’ll also get automatic daily backups and upgrades, free CDN, free SSL, free migrations, staging sites, SSH access, Git push support, and WP-CLI.
Though Nestify lets you use and customize any plugin, theme, or feature from any CMS, its focus is more on letting its expert team manage different things for you. Thus, it doesn’t offer user-friendly features like a 1-click app installer and the Hostinger website builder (Zyro).

A slightly better resource allocation plus user-friendly features make Hostinger this round’s winner.
Hostinger’s exemplary performance wins this round
Both these providers have their servers located across different regions for global coverage (7 for Hostinger and 4 for Nestify). Both also use multiple performance-enhancing features like SSDs, CDN, and cache configuration.
Despite both these providers using similar performance-enhancing features, Hostinger’s better global coverage and awesome uptime as well as loading speeds help it win this round.
It’s a tie
Your website’s security is in safe hands with Hostinger. This provider uses multiple security measures including free SSL certificate, CDN, RAID-10 for data redundancy, SSDs, weekly/daily backups, LVE containers to facilitate account isolation, proactive and predictive server monitoring, Bitninja/Imunify360 (WAF), and Wanguard anti-DDoS protection.
With Nestify, you’ll get free SSL, permissions settings, plugin verification, malware checking, daily security scans (for insecure plugins/vulnerabilities/protection from hackers), and SSD drives with RAID-10. Since it has a rigorous patch schedule and follows the best practices in DevOps, it also offers protection against DDoS attacks, bad bots, SQL injections, comments spam, etc.
Since both these providers use comprehensive and robust security measures, it’s difficult to pick a clear winner.
Nestify’s unreliable support let Hostinger win easily
To get help, you can use Hostinger’s 24/7 live chat support, or email, or ticket support (available only for logged-in users). You could even choose its paid “Priority Support”. I got quick replies from Hostinger’s competent support staff when I used its live chat. Multiple tutorials along with a knowledge base and blog are there to offer adequate self-help.
Nestify offers 24/7 support via live chat and support tickets (for logged-in users). Its live chat was a hit-and-miss as I got replies one time and then couldn’t even reach its support staff. I even tried its ticket support with no luck though. For self-support, it has a blog and a knowledgebase.
Hostinger beats Nestify easily, thanks to its lightning-fast support.
Hostinger Does Justice to Its Popularity
It’s not every day when a popular web host delivers what it promises and then some more. Nestify hosting may not be as popular as Hostinger but it still impresses with its features and security. Yet, its unreliable support doesn’t help, which is a common pain-point that several users have focused upon in their Nestify reviews. Overall, I find Hostinger doing much better than Nestify, which is why I recommend Hostinger. That it makes its way into the best web hosting services is yet another reason to use it for your hosting needs.
