In the further, this comparative review is made from our rich experience in introducing the best hosting companies and real customers’ hosting voices. It consists of several crucial aspects in hosting, including price, hosting features, uptime and speed and customer service.
Plans & Price
Focused on delivering quality web hosting, MochaHost offers both Linux and Windows shared hosting services. In terms of the more affordable Linux hosting, this company endows three optional plans which are named as Soho, Business and Mocha severally. For people who are interested in any of the mentioned plan, this web host gives them a half discount which reduces the initial prices of $3.95/mo, $4.90/mo and $10.35/mo down to the more cheaper prices of $1.95/mo, $2.45/mo and $5.18/mo.
Note that the 50% discount for Mocha plan is only valid for summer time. Besides, customers who are in need of the IP address have to pay additional $1/mo. All plans include 180-day free-of-risk (pro-rated) money back guarantee.
As a budget and high-quality hosting provider, BlueHost now offers three up-dated shared hosting plans to greatly meet a wide variety of customers’ needs. In details, the shared hosting plans, which are named after Basic, Plus and Prime plan, are originally rated at the price of $7.99/mo, $10.99/mo and $14.99/mo. Now, they are purchasable at the competitive price starting at $2.95/mo for visitors going through the promotional link as follows.
By using BlueHost, customers are able to ask for a refund at any time they want to cancel their accounts without any limitation, and they can get up to $200 value advertising credits for many famous social network websites and search engines, such as Google.
It is widely said that the cheaper the price is, the fewer the features are. Although MochaHost is more cost-effective than BlueHost to some degree, it has more limited resources and fewer basic and advanced hosting features than its competitor. To make things clear, we make out the following table for the two hosting providers by selecting the Soho plan from MochaHost to make a comparison with the Basic plan from BlueHost.

Performance & Reliability
Both of MochaHost and BlueHost promise to deliver no less than 99.9% network uptime and fast page transferring speed for all webmasters. In fact, even having a large customer base nationwide, MochaHost has been constantly receiving many users’ complaints saying that they have endured numerous days when the service is completely out-of-control and non-functional.
In addition, it is said that MochaHost actually delivers so deadly slow servers and low bandwidth that it always takes multiple days to get out of the frustration caused by timeout errors and 500 Internet frequently-appeared error problems.
In comparison, by making use of first-rate backup power and distribution units and top-notch core processors, BlueHost indeed accomplishes its promise by achieving close to 100% network uptime and fast server response time of 320ms averagely. More elaborate testing statistics for this company’s average network uptime and response time in the last 30 days are displayed as below.
Both the two companies provide their customers alternative support gateways, including on-site live chat and email ticket system. However, only BlueHost allows webmasters who run into knotty or sticky issue to get problems solved through the toll-free and effective phone call way.
In addition, there are not a few customers’ complaints about the slowness for the email help and inaccuracy and inefficiency for the on-line live chat support from MochaHost.
