Bluehost is a Web Hosting Service for Webmasters, Web Publishers, Ecommerce and maintained by Bluehost Inc.

Bluehost Summary

Blue Host is one of the longest running hosting companies still doing great business online. The company began in 1996, and has since made its way to the top of the industry. It is now hosting more than a million domains. Now, that’s expertise that can only come with time and experience. This veteran industry player clearly knows the needs of its clients, and it has expertly provided this and more.

Bluehost Pricing

The promo rate of Bluehost is at $3.95 a month for unlimited webspace, bandwidth, and domain hosting, as well as a domain name that’s registered for a year.  This is a steal price that’s hard to compete with, especially since it comes from a veteran industry player such as Bluehost. This rate also comes with the requisite features, such as cPanel administration interface, page builder and shopping cart options, and more. Regular rate is at $6.95 a month, which is $2 higher than the average hosting rates these days.

Bluehost Reliability

Blue Host’s years of service have allowed it to build a strong and reliable backend. It makes use of the OC-48 backbone connection, redundant UPS/diesel backup power, quad processor Opteron servers, and mirrored storage backup systems. In-house technical maintenance staff is available 24/7.

Bluehost Review

Blue Host has consistently ranked on top of the webhosting industry because of its great customer service. A hosting company can have the necessary trimmings of a state-of-the-art company. However, if it does not know how to appease the demands of its clients, it is bound to lose them to its competitors. With Blue Host’s award-winning support services, many of its clients have stuck it out, satisfied and happy with the company’s reliable services.

Of course, Bluehost can also boast of its feature-packed hosting packages. With plans that start at the promo rate of $3.95 a month, customers get unlimited webspace, bandwidth, and domain hosting. Each site also comes with a domain name, pre-registered for a year.  Regular rates start at $6.95 a month.

If you need reliable hosting with great customer service, don't get an account with Bluehost. I had three sites hosted there - operative word HAD - and all three were wiped out. All my sites appeared to be down (site not found) so I went into my account to see what was up and all my files were gone and my account suspended. I called customer service and the guy was extremely rude. He also refused to put me through to a supervisor as I asked and even hung up on me. I called back, got a different person but they also could not help and refused to put me through to someone higher up. I don't know how they've stayed in business this long with the rotten support staff.
