Here is a detailed post on various shared web hosting plans with Prons and Cons. This is a comparison between popular web hosting shared plans of bluehost, namecheap, siteground, godaddy, hostgator, ipage and dreamhost with snaps of their shared web hosting plans.

The data that I have seen in other websites was biased because they were trying to promote the merchant site. Here I looked only the cost part of it and not any other features of web hosting plan.
All this data was obtained from Customer Care Executives of each companies and as represented in the respective websites. I personally talked to each of them and got the data.

The price domain hosting and renewal is lesser in Namecheap and higher in iPage hosting plans. Now we can categorize all these plans according to the renewal cost of shared hosting plan + SSL support starting from cheaper one.

7. HostGator: Rs 9769

I am also categorizing these companies as per the service, knowledge level, time to get connected of customer care executives that I talked. This is completely subjective but it may help you in finalizing for a company.

1. SiteGround
Pros: Faster connect, good service and fast response.
Cons: Exceeded script executions and CPU usage limit issue.
2. iPage: Average connecting time, old chat interface, knowledgeable representative
3. DreamHost: Average connecting time. fast response.
4. Blue Host: Average connecting time, takes time for customer care representative to answer.
5. GoDaddy: The customer care executive connected via chat could not answer anything as he was from sales department. Hence I took data from website only.
6. NameCheap: Got connected but each time after 5 minutes they stopped responding and I had to end chat.
