⚙️ Which company offers the best features?
Both SiteGround and InMotion are well-known names in hosting. They offer similar types of plans, including shared hosting and managed WordPress options. Both web hosts also boast highly competitive prices, so we need to dig deeper into the features they offer.
For this article, we’re going to focus on WordPress-specific plans for both providers. When it comes to InMotion, their range of managed WordPress plans cost almost exactly the same as their regular shared options, though you can’t host unlimited sites like the regular plans allow.
Here’s what you get with their WordPress offerings:
- Free domain name for a year
- Free SSL certificate
- Pre-installed WordPress and automatic updates
- Automatic backups (for WP-2000S plan users and upward)
- Free website migration (if you request it)
- Support for multiple websites (for WP-2000S plan users and upward)
- Staging functionality
- Custom BoldGrid page builder
- Bundled access to the Jetpack Personal plan (for WP-2000S plan users and upward)
As usual, the amount of storage and bandwidth you get varies depending on the plan you choose. With the starter WP-1000S tier, you get 40 GB of storage and it supports approximately 20,000 visitors per month. All-in-all, InMotion offers a solid set of features with competitive pricing.
SiteGround doesn’t offer as broad a range of plans as InMotion. However, their managed WordPress offerings offer a lot more functionality out of the box. Here’s what you get with SiteGround’s WordPress hosting:
- Free SSL certificate
- Pre-installed WordPress and access to a setup wizard to configure your setup
- Automatic WordPress updates
- Free website migration
