There’s a lot that separates these providers. Digital Ocean has a greater reach worldwide but BlueHost offers a greater array of services. Digital Ocean only provides cloud hosting whereas BlueHost provides that and more, with dedicated servers, VPS, and shared hosting. Though Digital Ocean specializes in cloud hosting, BlueHost still does a better job and customers pay less overall for the service. Plus, it’s the only one mentioned here that is flexible on the support it gives for database management, CMS providers, and coding languages. It also provides a much quicker response to customer queries. When taking all these important features into consideration, like the selection of hosting options and flexibility on database management, BlueHost is the brand that clearly comes out on top.
