PHPMatters today awarded BlueHost, WebHostingHub and Arvixe as the best cheap web hosting providers in 2015. According to the statement on the site, the 3 web hosts offer cheap hosting solutions without compromising reliability, security, support and features.

"We have a set of strict criteria for the selection of cheap web hosting. Only when a web host fulfills all of them, will it be taken into consideration," said Susan, a co-founder of PHPMatters.

BlueHost, WebHostingHub and Arvixe have met all the criteria, including cheap price, reliable customer service and fast speed.

1)    Cheap Price
The prices of the 3 web hosts' shared hosting plans are less than $4/mo for the initial term, and the renewal costs are no more than $7/mo. BlueHost, for example, charges $5.99/mo regularly and $3.49/mo for webmasters paying for the first term through this exclusive promotional link.

2)    No Hidden Fee
Many cheap web hosting providers attract customers with low prices but put strict limitations on the usage of server resources. When a website runs out of the resources, the owner needs to spend much more money to purchase extra resources. The cost for additional disk storage, bandwidth and email storage might be higher than the hosting fee.

BlueHost, WebHostingHub and Arvixe offer unlimited bandwidth and a minimum of 100 GB disk storage, which can fully satisfy the normal consumption of a personal website or a small online store. In addition, the 3 web hosts do not charge any setup fee.

3)    Secure Refund Policy
The refund policy of some web hosts can be risky with unreasonable terms included. Even the fees for a number of normal features like control panel are deducted. The refund period can also be short.

To eliminate the worry of customers, WebHostingHub allows full refund within the first 90 days, Arvixe 60 days and BlueHost 30 days. In addition, they all offer an anytime pro-rated refund guarantee.

4)    High Performance
There are a large number of web hosts reducing their costs by overselling servers and decreasing the investment on facilities and technologies. Therefore, website uptime and speed cannot be guaranteed.

BlueHost, WebHostingHub and Arvixe have been using more than one data center and multiple bandwidth providers. In addition, they utilize technologies like SSD drives and CDN to speed up the hosted websites.

5)    Trustworthy Customer Service
The 3 web hosts offer customer service and technical support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through phone, live chat, email and ticket system. They all claim to take responsibility for technical issues.
