Compare A2 Hosting vs BlueHost

The speed graph on this page compares average loading times for a webpage on BlueHost and A2 Hosting. We gathered these results from diagnostics we collected before and after a website was moved from BlueHost to A2 Hosting. At A2 Hosting, we do not gauge whether websites moving from BlueHost had any specialized packages concerning speed. It also does not take into account whether the website is using a specialized speed package from A2 Hosting (for example, our “Turbo” package). It is simply a before and after test to find the average load time for a website hosted with A2 Hosting and BlueHost.

Who Is BlueHost?

BlueHost is a web hosting provider founded by Matt Heaton in 1996. It was purchased in 2010 by Web Hosting conglomerate Endurance International Group (EIG) and is currently located in Provo, Utah. BlueHost was primarily a Shared Hosting provider before launching Dedicated and virtual private servers (VPS) in 2013.

BlueHost vs A2 Hosting

When choosing BlueHost vs A2 Hosting for your website and business needs, it's helpful to understand both companies offer similar product offerings. Both companies offer Shared Hosting, Cloud Hosting, VPS Hosting, Dedicated Hosting and Domain Registration. These services are perfect for users concerned with scalability. Additionally, both A2 Hosting and BlueHost also specialize in hosting WordPress and WooCommerce solutions.

A key difference in product offerings is that A2 Hosting offers Reseller Hosting, while BlueHost doesn't. Reseller Hosting is perfect for users who are looking to launch their own hosting business or host their own customers. Additionally, A2 Hosting offers both Unmanaged and Managed VPS solutions to service two entirely different customer needs. The Unmanaged VPS is perfect for experienced developers while the Managed VPS is the perfect upgrade from a Shared Hosting account for users who need more power and resources.

Should I Choose A2 Hosting Or BlueHost?

Once you've settled on what type of service you want to use, now is the time to select your hosting company. Key factors in your decision should be which host offers the fastest servers, who offers the most dependable service and which hosting staff is the most capable of answering your questions in an accurate and timely manner.
