Winner: Google Cloud Platform

Michael Lavnduski Expert Hosting Writer & Tester

Most people use Google on a daily basis but perhaps aren’t all too familiar with Google Cloud Platform. Though it’s great for cloud hosting, that’s all the Google Cloud Platform offers, whereas BlueHost provides a full suite of hosting solutions, including cloud. Its customers can also choose from shared hosting, VPS, and dedicated servers. BlueHost’s prices come in much cheaper than they do with the Google Cloud Platform too, and the customer support on offer is more dependable. BlueHost provides a 24/7 live chat service and the Google Cloud Platform doesn’t have live chat. This, amongst plenty of other reasons, like greater hosting options and potential, is why BlueHost is the better provider and comes out on top in this comparison.
