This doesn’t, in any way, affect our reviews or information, as there are many hosts that pay high commissions that we refuse to recommend because they essentially suck so bad. while we wouldn’t say that Go Daddy had a bad showing per se, they just didn’t seem to have the same snappiness to their server response times that Bluehost did. Based on years of hosting websites professionally and personally, we’ve found that Bluehost is relatively superior to Go Daddy from our perspective in terms of web performance and speed.

This doesn’t, in any way, affect our reviews or information, as there are many hosts that pay high commissions that we refuse to recommend because they essentially suck so bad. You can read more on this site about the hosts we don’t like. That said, if you would like to purchase from a link on this page, it helps us to keep this site going and provide more in-depth reviews! Now that we’ve covered some of the initial information, let’s look at Bluehost compared to GoDaddy and see how they match up against each other. GoDaddy vs Bluehost: Evaluation and Comparison Metrics There are so many things to consider when comparing web hosts, it’s enough to make anyone dizzy. To keep things simple, there are five broad categories we typically like to look at in order to see how one web host stacks up against another. You’ll see these metrics in other comparisons on this site as we really believe that they’re the best snapshot of a web host’s quality and value. The remainder of this page will break down both hosts in each category using various testing data to help you understand how they compare. Speed and Web Performance: Bluehost vs GoDaddy We typically put the “Speed and Web Performance” category first when comparing web hosts because it’s truly one of the best “measuring sticks.” It really separates a good hosting company from a bad web hosting company. If a host is slacking on managing their infrastructure and resources it will usually be obvious right away in the speed (or lack thereof) of their servers. Speed is also an important part of user-satisfaction for a website because in the current age of broadband and LTE, website visitors don’t have much patience for sites that load slowly or freeze. There’s a lot of data to suggest that 3 seconds is the threshold for user attention—when a web page takes longer than that to load, it often results in users bouncing from that site. in order to put things into perspective, we went ahead and put Bluehost and GoDaddy against one another in order to determine which host had the fastest load time. To accomplish this, we ran a web page speed test on two different WordPress websites—one hosted on Bluehost, and the competing site hosted with GoDaddy. The speed test we used here (and our overall favorite) is the test from Dotcom-Monitor, located at. We like it because they allow you to run a single test and check from multiple locations around the world. To keep things simple for this test, we used their “American” network, which includes both North and South America. If you take a moment to review the screen shots below, you’ll see the test times summarized in the charts. You’ll notice above that Bluehost’s fastest load time was just under two seconds (1.4 to be exact) and their average load time was three point three seconds, which is right at the user-bounce threshold. In comparison, if you look at the image below, the best load time that GoDaddy could muster was three point four seconds and their worst load time was sixteen point eight seconds from the South American data center in Argentina. Looking at the averages, you can see that Bluehost was faster across the board and had an average load time that nearly matched GoDaddy’s best effort, which doesn’t look all that good for GoDaddy. while we wouldn’t say that GoDaddy had a bad showing per se, they just didn’t seem to have the same snappiness to their server response times that Bluehost did. We can also say that this echos our personal experience with the hosts. Based on years of hosting websites professionally and personally, we’ve found that Bluehost is relatively superior to GoDaddy from our perspective in terms of web performance and speed.
