In this blog, we will compare our RunHost to Hostinger. We will see what differentiates RunHost from other providers.
All web hosting providers are not equal in some ways. Although some look promising and excellent, they have hidden charges or some plans that do not meet your need. Here, we are to break down the differences between RunHost and Hostinger.
As for the types of hosting, here are some of the scalable options these two providers offer:
RunHost and Hostinger were already different in their starting offer of super affordable hosting solutions. RunHost give a 50% off discount to all new user starting at $3.49/month, while Hostinger gives 70% off starting at $2.99/month. But these providers demonstrate reliable and speedy performance results.
Now let’s see what is inside their shared hosting plans:
|POSITIVE $ 3.99 USD / mo Renews at $9.99 /mo||Premium Shared Hosting $2.99 USD /mo Renews at $6.99/mo|
|Websites Ilimitados||100 Websites|
|Dominio GRATIS||Free Domain (for 1 year only)|
|CDN GRATIS||CDN for $9.95 value|
|SSL GRATIS||SSL GRATIS|
|Free Email||Free Email|
|Unlimited Bandwidth and Databases||Unlimited Bandwidth and Databases|
|Backups Diarios||Weekly Backups|
|99.9% Uptime Guarantee||99.9% Uptime Guarantee|
|Migración de Website GRATIS||Migración de Website GRATIS|
|Free Website Builder||Free Website Builder|
|Soporte 24/7||Soporte 24/7|
|14 Days Money Back Guarantee||30 Days Money Back Guarantee|
We see that both providers have great features inside their hosting plan, except for the CDN feature in Hostinger that you have to pay if you will not buy an annual plan from them. While here at RunHost, you don’t have to bother cause it is always free for whatever plan you choose. They are also different when it comes to their Dominio feature, whereas we give a lifetime free domain as long as you renew your plan, while Hostinger can only give a free domain for a year and pay for the following years that start from $6.99USD. Now, we find that these providers have advantages and disadvantages on both sides and you can decide which one will benefit you.
Now let’s talk about the ease of use these two providers give:
Both RunHost and Hostinger target beginners to offer their simple user interfaces. Although similar in terms of simplicity, they differ when it comes to their management system. We at RunHost use a user-friendly cPanel, while Hostinger uses a single native hPanel. The main difference is that hPanel is an in-house tool developed by Hostinger while cPanel is the most commonly known in the industry and widely used among developers.
Talking about cPanel, you have access to more advanced tools, like email accounts and files on your server, managed databases, and security features. Simply put, all your website management settings and main tools are found in the cPanel. It’s also here that you’ll find the Softaculous Installer app to help you install WordPress or any other CMS you like. On the other side, Hostinger’s hPanel offers a clean, organized, and user-friendly interface that allows you to access and manage various tools like domain names, SSL configuration, email accounts, databases, a CMS installer, and many more.
Both providers are very simplistic and easy in terms of management. However, in terms of more advanced tools and easy website management, RunHost cPanel is a better option.
Now let’s find out these providers’ performances :
I found both hosting services deliver similar performance. In a series of tests, I found that Hostinger offered better uptime, response time, and faster loading speeds. But hang on, here at RunHost we also offer a 10x website speed-enabled tool for all our hosting plans. Speed plays an important role in page experience and we can also give you the speed needed. We also have scalable resources available to meet your website needs.
