Compare 73 Web Hosting Plans w/ SSL Certificate

Having an SSL Certificate lets you get a secure https website which is great for visitor trust and safety as well as a benefit for SEO. Most SSL products are only for 1 website, so make sure the web host you consider has good offers for multiple domains if you plan on hosting several websites. Usually the SSL Certificates that comes with hosting plans are the free Let’s Encrypt SSL and the free auto SSL part of cPanel.

Incredibly cheap web hosting at only $0.99/mo with a pre payed 1 year billing cycle. Great if you are just starting out and only need to host 1 website. The price after the initial year will be $7.99/mo. If you rather want monthly billing the price for this plan is $8.99/mo.

FREE domain & whois privacy

You can get a free .com domain for the first year if you select a 1 year pre payed billing cycle. After that it is $14.99/year + a small ICANN fee. Check our domain guide to compare prices with other registrars. This plan also comes with FREE Whois Privacy which is a feature that 1&1 offers for all their registered domains. The SSL Certificate is delivered by Symantec and is included with every 1&1 hosting plan. The shared plans from 1&1 have a Resource Scaling feature which you can use to scale up and down your RAM. 5 levels are available.

Website builder

The optional Website Builder you can get with this plan is the 1&1 MyWebsite Personal and costs $6.99/mo.

Conclusion

This is currently the cheapest plan we have listed on this site, and that is great. For getting started and hosting one website for a year this plan could be decent. An included domain name for the first year and even whois privacy are big pros which equates to about $15 in savings.

The typical cloud hosting feature of resource scaling is great and also rare to find among the cheapest shared web hosting plans.

But this plan has some drawbacks

The website builder is not included which I am sure will disappoint a lot of beginner webmasters. Instead it has a hefty monthly price. Also once the first year of hosting is finished the price will about 8x making the value proposal entirely different. The lack of SSD storage like most other hosts have upgraded to will make your hosted sites slower.

Also, the limitation of hosting only 1 website and the money back guarantee that 1&1 offer is one of the shortest in the industry.

Maybe the biggest drawback and I believe it should be a deal breaker for most is the low amount of RAM of only 1.25 GB. Most websites will struggle with that low amount of ram. In comparison the cheap iPage Go plan has about 4GB of RAM for each account on their cheap shared plans.

FREE domain and hosting discount

Every shared plan comes with a free .com domain name and is currently on sale for the first billing period - so choose longer billing periods to enjoy discounted web hosting for longer. You need to pay in advance for 1 year of hosting to get the listed price - even cheaper with up to 3 years of pre paid hosting, but more expensive with a monthly billing cycle. You can choose between lots of data centers located around the globe, all at the same price and with the same features.

Our coupon "whcompare7" gives an additional 7% discount!

Fast servers and optional features

Enjoy cheap and lightning fast web hosting with SSD storage and Nginx web servers! Whois privacy is $9.99/year. SiteLock Basic is $19.95/year and can help you stay clear of malicious files and malware. SiteMap Generation is $9.99 - You can find free tools for creating sitemaps online so I would not get this! Google Webmaster Account and Site Verification is $14.99 and Google Analytics Integration is $15.99 - again, you can find free guides and do this easily and quickly for free.

Conclusion

TMDHosting gets some of our highest ratings because of their great advantages that includes lots of data centers around the globe that you can choose from, and helpful and fast live USA based support team. Their plans also offers very fast loading of your hosted sites thanks to SSD storage. Long money back guarantees is also great.

Daily database backups and weekly file backups is included and saves some money. Expensive domain whois privacy negates most of the bonus of a free domain. However the hosting price overral can get really cheap if you select up to 3 year payment cycles. I also really like that you can upgrade pretty seamlessly to a more powerful shared or cloud plan if you come to need more power. You would only need to pay the difference between the two plans, for your unused time, even though you might only be 1 year into a 3 year contract.

This is the cheapest one of the 3 shared plans by TMDHosting, and it lacks resources, it only has 1 CPU core and 1 GB of RAM. It is also restricted to host max 1 website. You would be lacking power with this plan even with not very much daily traffic to your website.

Inital period discounted

The first billing cycle are on sale at 50% off and that is the price that we have listed here. Pre pay for up to 3 years to lock in that price for a long time. If you want to be billed monthly there is a set up fee for this hosting plan and you will only get the discount for the first month. Prices are excluding tax.

Fast web servers but expensive domains

All the shared web hosting plans by SiteGround comes with fast SSD storage, free SSL from Free Let's Encrypt and HTTP/2 enabled servers. As well as free Daily Backups and Unmetered Bandwidth. Registering a .com domain will currently cost you $15.95/year and Whois Privacy is $12/year. Check out our Domain Guide for cheaper domains and whois privacy. SG Site Scanner is a monitoring service that checks your website daily and notifies you if your website has been hacked or injected with malicious code so you can fix it ASAP, it costs $19.80/year.

Data center location

Select between 5 different data centers all with the same plan features and the same prices. The locations you can choose from are Chicago, Amsterdam, Singapore, London, Milano.

SiteGround informs that this plan is suitable for one website with up to ~10.000 monthly visits (~333 daily).

EU support team

The SiteGround support team is located in Bulgaria in the EU.

Conclusion

Siteground has some of the best speed tech for delivering lighting fast website hosting. However, the plan will renew at a pretty expensive price after your inital period (about twice the price) and this lowers the score for this plan. Also, expensive domain names and whois privacy is a slight downside that is easily avoidable though by using another domain registrar.

Your inital billing cycle is greatly discounted. Both by a promo discount (first term discount) and a duration discount (based on how long you select your billing cycle to be). This means that you can get the best discount for choosing long billing cycles, up to 3 years. It also means that the price will be about the double after your inital cycle.

Plan features

Dedicated IP address is $4/mo. Domain registration is $14.95/year, which is pretty expensive. Domain whois protection is $9.95/year so I would suggest to register you domain at another registrar. Check our domain guide for tips. The AntiSpam is called Barracuda Spam Firewall and costs $3/mo for one domain.

Data center location

Choose between USA south west (Arizona), USA north east (Michigan), or EU (Amsterdam), Asia (Singapore).

Conclusion

This plan has only 0.5 GB RAM and 1 CPU core. I would suggest to check out the 2 slightly more expensive shared web hosting plans from A2 Hosting for much more resources and higher value offers.

Access to several data center around the globe is a plus, and so is the included website builder app and the wide range of accepted payment options. I don't like that priority support is $20/mo - I would like to have fast support included in the price without paying extra. However, it is a great way to save a lot of money by not choosing it.

Fast web servers

Enjoy cheap and lightning fast web hosting with SSD storage and Nginx web servers, caching and more resorces than with the shared plans. These cloud plans basically gives you the power of VPS and the ease of shared in the same plan. These plans also have data mirroring for increased uptime and security!

Plan features

The SSL certificate is the popular free Let's Encrypt SSL. The Daily Backups are local daily database backups and weekly files and folder backups. Whois privacy is $9.99/year. SiteLock Basic is $19.95/year and can help you stay clear of malicious files and malware. SiteMap Generation is $9.99 - You can find free tools for this online!

This plan has low value compared with the only slightly more expensive TMDHosting Business Plan that comes with twice the amount of resources, and no max websites hosted cap. I would go with that plan instead in almost all cases.

Only 3 cloud plans to choose from is a drawback, and so is the fact that it's not possible to scale resources individually.

The prices they advertise on their site and other sites ($5.95/mo) is the greatly discounted 3 year contract prices – so keep that in mind when choosing your hosting company. The advertised prices on this site, WHCompare, are for 1 year contracts unless specified otherwise. If you want to pay on a monthly basis the price would be $16.95/mo.

The HostGator Business plan includes a Dedicated IP address and an SSL Certificate for 1 domain.

On sale

The shared web hosting plans from HostGator is currently on sale. Pre pay for as long as possible to get the greatest discount. Be noted that the prices will be higher after your initial period is over. You can see those prices on the billing page, they depend on how long billing cycle you have. HostGator has very large price differences whether you pay monthly or pay in advance for 1, 2 or 3 years of hosting.

Extra features

SiteLock monitoring comes in at $1.67/mo and is recommended by HostGator. If you do not have this you might struggle if your server gets infected with malware or viruses and HostGator may block you if you can't find all the infected files and then fix them. Daily Backups from CodeGuard offers lets you restore your site when needed with 1-click. It costs $2/mo.

Expensive domain names

Be noted that HostGator does not include a free domain name with your web hosting plan, unlike companies like TMDHosting does - instead HostGator, unfortunately, charges a premium for domains, $15/year for a .com per year, and a very high price for whois privacy at $1.25/mo or $14.95/year, which is triple the industry standard. Click here for our guide with information about the best domain registrars online. Use them to register your domains and to buy whois privacy at the lowest prices.

Conclusion

Responsive live chat support is one of the benefits of HostGator. It has some drawbacks though. The regular price after your initial billing cycle is pretty high for this kind of web hosting. Lack of SSD disks is another drawback.
