TMDHosting may not be as popular as Hostinger but I was surprised to find how it competed closely with its more popular counterpart in this web hosting comparison. I thoroughly tested both these web hosts in terms of multiple categories like features, performance, pricing, etc. and found Hostinger edging past TMDHosting.

1. Plans and Pricing
More resource allocations and a longer money-back guarantee make TMDHosting the surprise winner
Hostinger’s cheap shared hosting plans cost much less than TMDHosting’s managed Linux shared plans. But you’ll get these prices only with the longest term (quadrennial for Hostinger, triennial for TMDHosting). The renewal prices are almost twice to 1.6 times of the signup prices for Hostinger and TMDHosting respectively.
For the monthly term, Hostinger’s starting shared plan costs almost 10 times its quadrennial term’s cost while TMDHosting’s plan is almost 3 times its cheapest price. When I compared Hostinger WordPress vs. TMDHosting WordPress plans, I found the latter’s starting WordPress plan costs more than Hostinger but its other WordPress plans are more affordable and offer more resources.

Hostinger offers the standard 30-day money-back guarantee while TMDHosting inspires more confidence with its much longer 60-day money-back guarantee.
TMDHosting wins this round due to its wider range of plans, more resource allocations, and a longer money-back guarantee.

Superb, lightning-fast support wins it for Hostinger
Hostinger offers 24/7 live chat support, which I found to be prompt, competent, and professional. It also offers email and ticket support (for logged-in users) along with paid “Priority Support” that moves you to the top of the queue whenever you need assistance. For self-help, you have a knowledge base, tutorials, and blog.
You can reach TMDHosting’s 24/7 support through live chat, phone, email, online inquiry form, and support tickets (for logged-in customers).

For self-help, you have a blog, tutorials, and a knowledgebase.
Hostinger wins with its extraordinary support.
