BlueHost Review

BlueHost has a great reputation in the web hosting industry. They have been in the web hosting business since 2003 and since have risen to be a top-ranking hosting firm. Customer service is a key feature with BlueHost. They can be reached live on their customer support desk at a toll-free number 6 days a week. They also provide a great support trouble ticket system similar to other 5 star hosting services. BlueHost reliability ranks well in the industry as does their feature set and pricing. Customers who purchase their shared hosting plan will receive a free domain name. For just $6.95 per month you can get 4000MB of space and 100GB of bandwidth (well above most hosting plans). BlueHost recognizes that they are a relatively new hosting business but they boast a veteran staff with experience and knowledge well beyond the company's short time on the web.

Reliability

BlueHost provides standard uptime guarantees. We have not been notified of any major reliability issues about BlueHost unlike some other hosts.

Pricing

BlueHost offers a high-quality hosting plan for a very reasonable price. Their single coverage plan provides you with 4000MB of hosting space and 100GB of bandwidth. This is a pretty good deal compared to most web hosts. BlueHost provides several other features, including a free domain name, 2500 POP3 web-based e-mail accounts, 5 add-on domains, FTP, PHP, CGI, cPanel, Fantastico scripts, 50 MySQL databases, Agora Shopping Cart, and several more. All of these features make it easy to give BlueHost a high score for price value.

Account Management Features

BlueHost uses Cpanel, a popular user control panel. Cpanel comes with many excellent features. If you haven't used Cpanel yet, you are in for a treat. The control panel makes web development and management a breeze (almost). BlueHost/Cpanel have also integrated a number of billing features to make account management very simple.

Customer Support Comments

BlueHost makes it relatively simple to get customer support. Submit a question to their help desk via their online form, visit the extensive FAQ section of their website, or call their toll-free support number Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 10 PM and Saturday 8 AM to 5 PM. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly.
