We have discussed about the features from both Hosting providers. After seeing all the features and from my experience I suggest you that Bluehost will be a best Hosting provider and it will be a good option for long term blogs. Those who are new to blogging field may not know about the importance of choosing the best hosting and they simply choose hosting from godaddy after registering their domain. Godaddy will be a best choice for domain registration, but for hosting it is better to choose Bluehost Hosting.
