Owning your site, whether you are using it for personal or business reasons is one of the “IT” things today. Why is that so? Well, EVERYONE, yes, everyone is on the internet. If you want your advocacies aware or your online store getting all the traffic you need, then getting the right web hosting design for you is crucial.
In Singapore, five web hosting providers are in demand. There are several areas to look into, some of these are:
Is it cheap? Expensive? -Is it worth your money?
How fast is the Uptime?
Is there a 30- day money back guarantee?
A2 Host, SiteGround, WP Engine, BlueHost and iPage (not in order) are the top web hosting and domain servers in Singapore. How do they differ, and how are they alike?
BlueHost, SiteGround, iPage, and A2 Host offer the cheaper plans than WP Engine. The four web hosting providers offer affordable start-up plans. WP Engine’s pricing is expensive, as shown on their rates. And when it comes to currency, A2 Host is the only one that offers their plans in Singapore Dollars compared to the rest which is asking for US dollars as the currency of the payment.
If you want to know which providers have their data centers in Singapore, SiteGround and A2 Host will pass the test. BlueHost, iPage and WP Engine have their data centers in the United States, United Kingdom, and other parts of Asia.
All of them are offering a 30-day money back guarantee. If you choose to sign up for a plan, BlueHost will require you to be with them for either a 12 month or 36-month contract. One more thing, you have to think hard if you are willing to risk on a plan because the renewal of plans is expensive for BlueHost and iPage.
WP Engine is exclusively for the WordPress Platform compared to the others who are catering to different platforms. Although the email address is not part of their plans, which is a real bummer considering their pricing. If we are talking about uptime, well all of them provide a 99.98% uptime, which is good.
So if you can’t decide on which web hosting provider to choose, then you may refer to the following:
- BlueHost – – WordPress recommended, cheap, long-term contract, domain- Yes
- SiteGround- – cheap start-up, no native.sg domain, data center in SG
- iPage- – cheap start-up, no long-term contract, customizable email address
- A2 Host- – cheap start-up, available in Singapore Dollars, data center in SG
