“Truly well-balanced hosting. Super speeds, localized support and brilliant value for money makes Hostinger our top pick for Singapore!”


This little Lithuanian web hosting company has made waves internationally with their seriously fast server speeds and very affordable prices.


In fact – when we did some market research on leading web host brands, Hostinger turned out to be the Most Sought-After Web Host of 2020 (Read the full report here).


Hostinger is now the most popular hosting brand in the world!


Turns out, they’re a fantastic choice for Singaporean websites too!


Pros and cons of Hostinger



  • ✓ Fanstastic server speed and uptime
  • ✓ Excellent hosting features for a low price
  • ✓ Singapore data server and great global coverage
  • ✓ Support team serving in 20 languages


  • • No daily backups on some plans
  • • No phone support
  • • Lowest rates require longer subscription periods


Hostinger’s performance


Upon discovering that they’ve got a data center in Singapore, we decided to create a test site with them to see how they fare against the best of the best web hosting companies around.


After doing some testing, we decided that they deserve a spot on the big boy’s table here on this list. Hostinger Singapore definitely doesn’t disappoint.


Their Singapore server did really well in our server response time test, with a worldwide average of 168.9 ms, and under 100 ms in Singapore, Japan, Sydney, and Bangalore, but that’s already expected, being an international web host and all.


US (W) US (E) London Singapore Sao Paulo
179 ms 250 ms 216 ms 3 ms 347 ms

Bangalore Sydney Japan Canada Germany
58 ms 93 ms 78 ms 248 ms 217 ms

Avg. Speed: 168.9 ms – See full result


Hostinger’s features and pricing


All of Hostinger’s plans come packed with premium features and boast a low introductory price.


Features Single Shared Premium Shared Business Shared
Price S$4.04/mo S$4.04/mo S$5.39/mo
Renews at S$8.09/mo S$12.14/mo S$16.19/mo
Storage 50 GB 100 GB 200 GB
Bandwidth 100 GB Unlimited Unlimited
Databases 2 Unlimited Unlimited
See all features

*All plans come with a 30-day money back guarantee.


What really impressed us was the amount of value we got at their irresistibly low price point. Our Premium Shared plan only cost SGD4.04 per month and the number of features we received with it felt almost criminal.


We got almost all of the same benefits of the premium web hosting counterparts, namely:


  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • 100GB SSD
  • NGINX caching
  • PHP7 support
  • GIT support
  • A great control panel (hPanel)


These are just a few of the features we received, but the icing on this very beautiful cake is that Hostinger provides their premium shared users with 1 free domain name! It’s a small gesture that really has a big impact, especially for beginner business owners who are worried about snowballing start-up costs.


Needless to say, we really like Hostinger. They’re able to offer premium-like features & speeds at super affordable prices and plans (from SGD4.04 a month) – perfect for beginners and startups. And if you’re able to commit to a long-term plan, well – it’s hard to beat SGD2.69/mo (for the 4 year plan).


Hostinger’s customer support


We’ve written a whole article looking at how great Hostinger’s customer service is – it’s a big part of having peace of mind. They offer helpful support 24/7 over live chat, and we’ve found all our enquiries were addressed very quickly and effectively.


We feel that Hostinger really cares for their customers because of how they structure and train their support team. Their support widget can be easily found on the bottom right of their dashboard, which eases frustration because who wants to hunt for the damn link to the live chat when something goes wrong with our websites?


Their service is available in 20+ countries and in 13 different languages to make communications easier (including Mandarin and Malay!). They’re also really knowledgeable and super helpful. They don’t mind holding your hand and guiding you step-by-step to fix your website woes, no matter how silly they may be.

“World-famous hosting service endorsed by WordPress and with an 100% uptime guarantee.”


If we’re talking about international players, it’s only natural to also mention DreamHost! Headquartered in California, DreamHost has served over 400,000 customers and 1.5 million sites.


Pros and cons of DreamHost



  • ✓ Officially endorsed by WordPress
  • ✓ Very fast server speeds within the US
  • ✓ Outstanding speed performance
  • ✓ Excellent security features
  • ✓ 97-day money back guarantee


  • • No data centers outside the US (slower speeds for Asia or Oceania)
  • • Live Chat support limited to Pacific time zone
  • • Need to pay extra for telephone support


DreamHost’s performance


Speed-wise, DreamHost doesn’t joke around. Thanks to their use of speed-boosting SSD servers, DreamHost scored a solid A+ ranking on our speed tests, with an impressive worldwide average of 118.4 ms.


US (W) US (E) London Singapore São Paulo
70 ms 2 ms 77 ms 242 ms 117 ms

Bangalore Sydney Japan Canada Germany
194 ms 210 ms 169 ms 16 ms 87 ms

Avg. Speed: 118.4 ms – See full result


A key point to note here is that DreamHost has only 2 data centers that are both based in the US. As expected, speeds got significantly slower when serving regions further away from the North American continent. We noticed the average response time for Asia is 203.75 ms, with Singapore pinging back 242 ms.


Whilst these speeds aren’t ideal, bear in mind it’s only a real problem if your website audience is based in this part of the world. BUT, if your website is mostly serving audiences in the US or Europe, we’d say DreamHost is one of the best hosts you can pick from. To start with – their average worldwide speed is actually the fastest out of all the hosts on this list!


DreamHost’s features and pricing


DreamHost has two tiers of plans – we’d recommend the Shared Unlimited if you want more resources to play with – like unlimited websites and emails.


Features Shared Starter Shared Unlimited
Price S$3.98/mo S$3.98/mo
Renews at S$8.09/mo S$14.84/mo
Storage 50 GB Unlimited
Bandwidth Unlimited Unlimited
SSL certificate Free Free
See all features


What’s also definitely worth mentioning is their money back guarantee. Whilst most hosts offer a standard 30-day money back guarantee, DreamHost takes it to the next level by extending it up to 97 days!


They’re especially awesome if you plan to host a WordPress site. They’re actually 1 of only 3 web hosts who are ‘officially’ endorsed by WordPress. For them – it’s a great vote of confidence. For you – it means WordPress runs beautifully, you’ll have access to a support team of WP experts, and you’ll be able to use their nifty drag-and-drop WP Website Builder to get your site up quickly.


Plus, when we look at DreamHost’s features – we really have nothing to complain about.


  • SSD storage – Yessir!
  • Storage Space – A fabulous 50GB on the Starter (SGD 3.98), or you can upgrade to unlimited
  • Websites Allowed – 1, or upgrade to unlimited
  • Bandwidth – Unlimited
  • Worldwide Speed: A+


What are the drawbacks of DreamHost? As we’ve said, we can’t help but wish they had some data centers outside the US too. Their US-focus also means that, if you want to use their live chat, you’ll need to observe the working hours of the Pacific time zone.


BUT, if most of your audience is near the US, plus you’re not a fan of Hostinger’s branding or SiteGround’s prices – definitely check DreamHost out!


DreamHost’s customer support


DreamHost offers in- house customer support via Live Chat and ticketing, and from our own trials, they responded within minutes. But on top of having access to a team of WordPress experts, you can also make use of their active forum and their pretty sweet knowledgebase.


There’s also no free telephone support, but you can request a call-back if you don’t mind paying.

  • ✓ SuperCacher tech. to load your site 4x faster!
  • ✓ User-friendly custom dashboard


  • • Not cheap, and rates go up significantly on renewal

SiteGround’s performance


SiteGround recently moved their entire infrastructure to the Google Cloud Platform, which allows for easy scalability, better security and faster speeds for their users. Throw in additional perks like their ready-to-use caching system and the SuperCacher, and SiteGround has a clear advantage.


When we put the host through our unique server speed checker, SiteGround produced phenomenal results, with a worldwide average ranking of 159.9 ms, and an average of 58.5 ms in Asia!

Feature wise, SiteGround didn’t disappoint:


  • SSD Storage – Check
  • Storage Space – 20 freakin’ gigs
  • Websites allowed – As many as you want
  • Bandwidth – Up to 100,000 visits
  • Worldwide Speed: A+


All for a measly SGD9.03 a month (I eat snacks more expensive than that!).


However, bear in mind that SiteGround’s renewal prices can get expensive. Be mentally prepared to pay more than double the introductory prices to renew the contract. But for the service you get? We think it’s worth it.


SiteGround’s customer support


SiteGround is a strong contender – especially when it comes to customer service. They offer support via 24/7 Live Chat, ticketing, and also the phone. They’ll respond to any of your issues quickly, and they are a tremendously knowledgeable bunch. If you ask nicely, they’ll even tell you where to find the best chilli crab in Singapore (OKAY I’M KIDDING!).


Our problems were solved without transferring us to different departments, saving us the hassle of repeating our issues over and over again until somebody can help us, which is a major time saver.

Pros and cons of Vodien



  • ✓ Local Singaporean business
  • ✓ Fast speeds worldwide and locally


  • • Slow customer service
  • • Very expensive


Vodien’s performance


Thankfully, Vodien seems to justify their prices when it comes to server speed. With a worldwide average ranking of 177.6 ms, 95.5 ms in Asia, and 6 ms in Singapore, you know that your customers aren’t waiting long to load up your site.

SSD Storage? Yes, but only on Business Hosting plans


  • Storage Space? 15 gigs – not bad!
  • Websites Allowed – Limited to 5, but do we really need more than that?
  • Bandwidth – It says ‘unlimited’
  • Worldwide Speed: A+


Not bad right? Everything seems comparable to the top ranking web hosts so far. Everything except for the price. You see, for us to get an accurate apple-to-apple comparison data, we had to use Vodien’s bizValue plan.


In other words, this is their super expensive, premium package, which costs a whopping SGD29 a month. I don’t know about you guys, but to me, that seems mighty expensive.


Vodien’s customer support


Surprisingly, for a brand as prominent as them, their customer service is… to put it in milder terms, not great. It took them 12 hours to respond to an issue we encountered while setting up the test site. 12 hours! That’s 3 and a half days in dog years! Fortunately, when they DID respond, the issue was resolved quickly and professionally.

“Fantastically affordable green and no-frills hosting for small businesses.”


Next is HostPapa , an independently-owned company based in Toronto.


They’ve been selling web hosting since 2005, which makes them a bit newer than some of the hosts on here. Still, their top executives supposedly have 70+ years of industry experience combined!


Pros and cons of HostPapa



  • ✓ Great server speeds – especially in Europe & North America
  • ✓ Eco-conscious
  • ✓ Great support team
  • ✓ Free knowledgebase of videos and tutorials
  • ✓ 30-minute consultation 1-on-1 for free


  • • Automatic backups cost extra
  • • Slightly more pricey than others on the market
  • • No data centers near Asia or Australia


HostPapa’s performance


We’ve been reviewing HostPapa for years and have always found it a very solid product. The only reason we’re bringing it lower down this list is because it only has servers in the US, Canada and Europe. If only they had a server nearer to Asia!


But we STILL think HostPapa is a great option for Singaporean websites. And our speed test results agree. We hosted a total of 3 test websites, ran them through our speed test tool, and were impressed. Just take a look-see.


US (W) US (E) London Singapore Sao Paulo
159 ms 119 ms 8 ms 160 ms 213 ms

Bangalore Sydney Japan Canada Germany
115 ms 275 ms 238 ms 129 ms 14 ms

Avg. Speed: 143 ms – See full result


The best response time pinged from Singapore was 160 ms. Even though this was hosted all the way from Amsterdam, it’s impressively fast for Singaporean audiences!


On paper, their numbers can’t beat our #1 web host Hostinger, but with global speed averaging at 143ms, loading up your page is pretty much instantaneous. To sum it up, HostPapa’s servers respond quickly for ALL your site visitors – whether they’re based in Singapore, or elsewhere on the planet.


HostPapa’s features and pricing


HostPapa’s cheapest plan works well for small single sites, but their Business Plan is where things really ramp up with the ‘unlimiteds’.


Features Starter Business Business Pro
Price S$8.03/mo S$8.03/mo S$24.23/mo
Renews at S$16.19/mo S$20.24/mo S$32.39/mo

Websites 1 Unlimited Unlimited
Bandwidth Unmetered Unmetered Unmetered
See all features


Its Starter plan costs just SGD 8.03 (for a 3 year commitment) and even then you get a ton of value:


  • A free domain registration
  • Free site migration
  • 100GB of disk space
  • ‘Unlimited’ bandwidth
  • Cloudflare CDN, free SSL
  • Access to an award-winning customer support team


… the list goes on. For their Business plans, HostPapa sweetens the deal even more by throwing in more unlimited goodies. Plus, you can request a free 30-minute 1-on-1 consultation with their team on anything hosting-related. It’s a handy way to resolve any questions or doubts and is pretty cool – not many hosts bother with this.


In all, HostPapa offers awesome value, speed and support. Sure, we wish they had a data center in Singapore, and we’d like to see more speed enhancing features. But at least they’ve proved their speed in our speed tests. In all, we think HostPapa offers great value for money for small businesses. Its plans are cheap, but you’re getting a whole load of bang for buck.

For a more detailed on how we write our web hosting reviews, scoot on over to our article on how we review our web hosts.



Why Good Web Hosting Is Important In Singapore


Our Sweet Singapore is the obvious choice for a digital hub for South East Asia.


Aside from having the resources to attract the brightest talents from all over the world, we’ve cemented ourselves as a digital R&D hub, ranked as “#1 in Asia in 2017’s Global Innovation Index”.


Our lightning fast IT infrastructure has also made us the preferred choice for digital tech companies, with Silicon Valley giants like Facebook, Yahoo and Google setting up base on Singaporean grounds to target the Asean markets.


With heavy hitters like these in our shores, they’ll naturally attract talents from all over, bright minds that will set up online businesses here as side hustles. These people will no doubt understand that sales is directly linked to site load speed, hence going for good web hosting providers with the fastest response times.


If you’re looking to have any chance of your business competing with these people, you’re going to want to ensure that your web hosting provider is up to par, at least in regards to speed. It’s important that the service should not just be fast locally, but able to provide you with competitive loading times globally as well.


Verdict: Who Is The Best Web Hosting For Singapore?


To recap, here is our top web hosting for Singapore:

We had a lovely time reviewing these 5 brands, but it also made it super difficult for us to pick a winner.


It boils down to a matter of preference (some people might prefer local Singaporean hosts, some might prefer international ones) because each one of these brands are excellent, with impressive features and numbers to back them up.


However, the main deciding factor for us would be value. The international brands gave us everything we needed with their entry-level packages, which costs below SGD14 per month.


The local brands could compete, but only with their premium packages which can cost up to SGD50 per month.


Their entry level packages come with only HDD storage options, which isn’t ideal especially as we’re dealing with speed and load times. They also seem to lack 24/7 support, something which is quite important to us.


Thanks to their speed, features and excellent customer support, I’d have to say that Hostinger is the BEST web hosting in Singapore for us.


They offer true-blue, well-balanced hosting. You’ll enjoy great server speeds, regardless of where your audience is based – plus world-grade tech at a price that’s WAY cheaper than local providers!


However, if you prefer to go with any of the other brands, don’t sweat it. All the ones on this list perform really well locally and internationally, as verified by our server speed checker.
