Let’s compare three well-known cheap hosting services. With this FatCow Vs SiteGround Vs Web Hosting Hub comparison, we will review their control panels, servers, technical support, hosting features, and more.
By the end of this review you will definitely find the perfect hosting provider for your business.
FatCow is a web hosting provider for small to medium-sized businesses that was founded in 1998.
Web Hosting Hub is a hosting company that was founded in 2001 and they currently have over 40K hosting customers.
SiteGround is a leading web hosting provider that was founded in 2004. SiteGround is the youngest hosting company in this article but they currently have over 500K web hosting customers.
FatCow is the only web hosting company on this list that uses the vDeck control panel. vDeck is rich in features, but I prefer cPanel which is the industry standard control panel and also the easier hosting control panel of the two. SG and WHH both utilize cPanel which means more features and a cleaner interface.
When it comes to page load speed both Web Hosting Hub and FatCow offer a load response time of around 450ms. When you choose FatCow your blog will be accessed by visitors via fast (OC3), triply redundant Internet connections. FC offers their customers two data centers in Boston.
Web Hosting Hub offers 2 U.S. data centers. One data center is located in Virginia Beach, VA and the other data center is located in Los Angeles, CA.
SiteGround utilizes 5 data centers around the world for faster site load speeds. There is nothing better than to choose servers on different continents. SiteGround on average receives a 300ms load response time.
Uptime is essential to any successful website. All three companies deliver with a 99.99% monthly uptime rating.
With SiteGround you will save yourself 60% off hosting. SiteGround offers hosting for all types of bloggers and entrepreneurs. Their Startup plan is $3.95/mo. The yearly hosting price is going to come up to $47.40. SiteGround also has a Grow Big plan which is going to cost you $5.95/mo. This plan gives you a few more weapons in your arsenal. Their last plan is their Business plan for $11.95/mo.
FatCow offers a special introductory price for $49 a year. FatCow is only $2.40 more a year than SiteGround. Both WordPress web hosting services offer amazing prices. They are over 20% cheaper than most hosting companies.
Web Hosting Hub can be purchased for $4.99/mo which is currently 44% off. This is their 36-month billing option. Their 24-month billing option is going to cost you $5.99/mo. Their 12-month billing option is going to cost you $6.99/mo. These are decent hosting prices, but obviously compared to SiteGround and FatCow it is expensive.

All three companies offer hosting for the largest platform. Whether you need hosting for a WordPress or PrestaShop site. Or a Joomla or Drupal site, you are covered!
www.kmcoombs.com – I like the SiteGround servers a lot. I have used a variety of hosting providers from BlueHost and GoDaddy. My websites are the fastest on SiteGround servers than the competitors I have used.
yeeti.com – FatCow rocks for me as I got hosting for two years with a huge discount. Overall good for the price I paid for it.
plsmith.ca – Web Hosting Hub is one of the best hosts, if not THE best host, I’ve used. The value for your dollar really can’t be beat.
Web Hosting Hub is one of the rare hosting companies that offer Skype support. You must have an active Skype account to use this support feature. If you don’t have a Skype account you can create one in just a few minutes. They also have quick chat, ticket, and phone support.
FatCow offers everything from phone support, ticket support, live chat support, user guides, a knowledgebase, and additional resources.
SiteGround always go to different cities to interact with their customers. This is one support feature that sets them apart from other companies. SiteGround offers fast ticket support, live chat support, email support, tutorials, preinstall wizards, and webinars on the hottest hosting topics.
After reviewing all three sites, it is clear that SiteGound is the winner. SiteGround offers more data centers and better hosting technology which results in faster load speeds.
SiteGround is the cheapest service and SG offers more perks. In my opinion, the only category that SG loses in is support. Web Hosting Hub’s Skype support feature is rare to have. However, once again SiteGround gives you more bang for your buck. Also, it is far more popular.
