HostGator is one of the largest and most well established hosting companies. But time and success breed complacency, and upstart companies have managed to improve on HostGator’s range and depth of service offerings, particularly in the area of managed WordPress hosting. This simple side-by-side WordPress hosting comparison illustrates why Pressable is the smart choice if you need to host one or more WordPress sites.


Pressable has plans starting at $25 per month for hosting five sites, or $5 per site. HostGator’s cheapest plan starts at $7.16 per month for a single site. Users can lower that fee, but only by committing to multi-year contracts. There is also the level of service to consider in that cost. Pressable’s fully managed hosting plans provide layers of added value by saving time, cost and intellectual capital.


HostGator currently offers 24/7 support, and Pressable plans to have 24/7 support later in the year. Remember to look past the schedule of support and consider the quality. HostGator is one of the largest hosting companies in the world and services over 8,000,000 domains. Pressable’s service base is a small fraction of that, which equips us to provide you with fast, detailed and committed support guided by WordPress experts.


Some of the complaints we’ve heard about HostGator is that it is hard to determine exactly how much you are getting, how much you will be paying, and what terms and conditions you are committing to. Their plans are essentially bold claims on top of mountains of fine print. Pressable has a transparent structure that makes it easy for every client, even those new to hosting, to understand.


WordPress sites are a small portion of the sites being hosted on HostGator’s servers. As a result, their servers cannot be optimized to serve WordPress sites. Pressable exclusively serves WordPress sites, so our servers have been optimized to boost WordPress performance. Thanks to managed caching and a premium CDN partner, Pressable is able to deliver blazing-fast load times.
