Winner: Bluehost

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

Site5 and BlueHost are two fairly popular hosting companies that cater largely to the entry level hosting niche. While Site5 is a fairly average hosting company, BlueHost is a nice step above that. They have very reliable hosting services, and their technical support is very impressive. Despite the fact that they offer better hosting than Site5, they are able to keep their prices even lower, which is why we named them the winner in this competition.
