Here you can observe the differences between Dreamhost’s and Siteground’s pricing. You can notice a big gap between the two.
On first sight, they do look similar. But if you pay close attention, you can see that you will get a big surprise when your plan renews.
Both Siteground and Dreamhost want to make their price seem low, but the actual costs are $19-49 for Siteground monthly and $4.4 – 6.6 for Dreamhost.
So Siteground is actually more expensive than Dreamhost by a lot. Siteground just tricked you into believing that they are cheaper. However, in Siteground’s defence, you do get some extra features that Dreamhost does not provide, like white-labelled clients.
Now to the final question, which hosting provider is better? Well, that is a hard question to answer. Some might think Dreamhost is better, while others believe Siteground is better. You won’t go wrong using either hosting provider. It really depends on what you need.
Those who want a budget hosting provider should go to Dreamhost.
