Shared Hosting Plans:
Let’s take a look at the features that are provided by the two web hosting companies in their basic packages. Hostgator provides a plan that comes with unlimited space whereas Justhost comes with 50GB of Space. Unlimited always sounds good but 50GB is actually enough if you’re just starting out. The bandwidth provided by the two is unlimited as well as the panel that is used is the same, cpanel. When it comes to the number of sites that can be hosted on the two platforms, the number is unlimited for both the platforms. These features essentially mean that the two companies offer almost the same things in their basic package.

Let’s move on to the dedicated server plans for the two companies. The space provided by Justhost and Hostgator is again the same, 500GB. All remaining features such as the RAM and CPU required is also the same, which stands at 4GB RAM and 2×2.30Ghz CPU. The only difference in features is that Justhost can also be run at Linux. The standard price of Justhost’s basic package is $79.99 & Hostgator offers it at $174.

One drawback that Justhost faces is that it doesn’t provide a cloud hosting plan.
