Not many websitehosting companies now days give an offer where you can get both a domain and a hosting for free at the same time, so this offer is particularly appealing if you’re starting a new blog or then looking for a second hosting account to start a second website or blog.

Both webhosting providers support the most popular blogging software wordpress, which can be installed quickly with a 1 click install. They also support many other blog software scripts, forums scripts and image galleries scripts, if you want to host something other than a blog.
The most important bit is that , you can install more than 1 blog on your hosting account so If you suddenly decide to get another domain name and start a new second blog, you don’t need to buy another hosting account.
The above listed hosting plans prices from these two providers are for a monthly basis, but are charged on a yearly basis, so you will have to calculate the total costs on a yearly basis. Plans are also available for a pay as you go monthly basis, but then the prices are a bit pricier than the ones listed above.

Why are these Hosting and domain plans so cheap?
These bloghosting providers normally can afford to give these low prices only due to offering these plans to new customers and making money from customers over the longer term, when they extend their contracts. The advertised price is only for the first year, and then it switches back to normal renewal prices a few dollars more. You have the options at that time to switch to a new hosting provider to then remain as a customer with your existing website-host.
Dedicated servers Vs shared plans
These plans are cheaper because the y are shared hosting plans and not dedicated servers or VPS servers which are a bit more costly and not shared servers. The dedicated and Vps servers are generally quite speedy and more exclusive. However if your just starting out with a website or blog, these shared plans will easily serve your purpose at a reasonable price. These above two provided hosting plans are currently cheaper than most other popular shared plans.
Bluehost and go daddy also offer great tips and blogging and website guides on their blog https://garage.godaddy.com/ and http://www.bluehost.com/blog/ blogs and they also offer server checking status tools to check your server status
Hosting of your blog or website is considered the backbone of your blog and one of the main factors that keeps your blog running smoothly without glitches and if you get this important factor wrong with a bad hosting provider, you could be missing out on valuable traffic from your viewers due to dodgy servers that are slow or then having server issues. Make sure you check the uptime of your websitehost; Bluehost and godaddy have a good uptime rating and have just upgraded their servers so speed is also good.
Right now you can get a free domain name with both of them so both deals are good; however godaddy is beating bluehost on price. Bluehost though does have more scripts/software to install and choose from in their hosting panel and have a much more user friendly administration panel.

[ Note: Digitalgrog is a Bluehost/ Hostgator/ Hostmonster/ Godaddy /Dreamhost/Ipage affiliate partner and we also have hosting accounts with these services, which means that in addition to using their service, we also receive a commission for referring new customers. To be fair, though, we would still use any of these Hosting services , but do have a preference for some and so we have done a full review of all the hosting partners we use. Ergo, we don’t recommend Bluehost or any featured host just because we’re an affiliate (every hosting company offers a similar affiliate program and you could pick any of them ), but we recommend Bluehost because they are the best, most reliable option. Plus, because we’re a partner, Bluehost offers a special price for digitalgrog.com.au readers: only $3.49 a month and you already have our godaddy $1 special above. That’s a phenomenal price. Links provided above will take you to the latest updated promo deals. Feel free to pick which host suits your budget or preference and good luck 🙂 ]
