I agree that AWS is the clear winner. I’ve been switching all my web properties from BH to AWS and the difference is night and day. A couple other important differences:
1. AWS is much faster than BH, I haven’t personally done benchmark tests but if you search Google, they’re out there
2. AWS pricing is different for everyone. A T2 Micro instance is $.01 per hour and the first year is free.
3. If you purchase a reserved instance of 12, 24 or 36 months the rate comes down substantially. That’s probably the best apples-to-apples comparison with BH because their minimum term is 12 months.
