    Hello friends,
    Previous year, I bought a domain name and hosting on Bluehost with 60 dollars, next month my hosting and my domain name will expire, I found that I have to pay 17 dollars for domain name and 107.88 for hosting is too expensive for me, can I migrate hosting to Siteground, and the domain name will stay at Bluehost?
    I want your advice please :)
    I worked hard on this website :(

    You can. If you have a multiyear agreement or something with them, you may need to pay the remaining amount. Hasn't worked with them in years.

    You can renew the domain and then transfer it to a host who will charge cheaper annual renewal rates.
    Regarding the hosting and your actual question, yes, you can migrate to siteground or just about any host you choose to while keeping your domain with Bluehost. Simply change your DNS records to point to your vhost at Siteground.

    Remember siteground will do the same. First-year, they charge near around $79 for the Grow Big plan. Next year in the renewal, they will cost $249, which is triple of your base amount. Either you have to renew for multiple years in the beginning or will face the same shit in the next year.

    $17 for the domain, transfer that to another domain provider also, your save another $5-8 and hey every cent counts.

    hosting, maybe pick a smaller host and that way they can offer you a good price :)
