Bluehost Website Hosting Review (


Bluehost Website Hosting ReviewBlueHost offers shared, reseller and dedicated hosting plans. Their most popular options are the shared hosting plans they offer. The company was founded in 2003 and is part of the Endurance International Group with both HostMonster and FastDomain. The company doesn’t outsource anything: they have superb in-house customer support that will quickly help their users with any issue they may stumble upon.

BlueHost offers simple, but generous hosting solutions and they also offer quite a lot of bandwidth and space for very good prices. The prices for the shared hosting options differ depending on the length of the contract. The most cost effective way to purchase their shared hosting is by taking the 36 month account, as you will pay only $6.95 a month. There are various discounts and coupons available as well, so the initial price drops even lower. New users are able to use this to their advantage and pay only $3.95 a month for the first term.

Not so long ago they started offering dedicated hosting as well. There are three plans available (Standard, Enhanced and Premium) and prices range from $149.99 to $249.99. New users get a 50% discount for their first month of subscription as well. Those who choose their dedicated hosting service will be able to use their enhanced cPanel, they will have root access and will be able to use all the server management tools and should they need assistance, they will quickly get it from their dedicated support team. If the chosen plan doesn’t provide enough storage, there is an upgrade option available as well (prices range from $45 a month for 500GB to $95 a month for 2 TB of space).


BlueHost servers operate on dual quad processor power and have a UPS power backup as well as a diesel generator backup power in order to keep your website up all the time. They offer only Linux operating systems and their servers communicate through multiple 10 gigabit Ethernet connections. As BlueHost is known as a company that doesn’t outsource, they have their own fibre connections. BlueHost operates around 5000 servers and 2 million domains and web pages today. They use 64GB DDR3 memory, Dell servers with four AMD Operton processors (that have 4 cores), RAID 10 SATA3 and 1000 Mbit intranet connection to routers.


BlueHost, as well as many other hosting providers, use the cPanel, which is also the market standard. Within the panel, users can easily set up email forwarding, support, MySQL and more. The cPanel is customized and built into the Blue Host Control Panel and you can access it through their control panel. There you will find all the usual tools: domain management, domain search, site builders, anti-spam software, dedicated IP settings and more.


The BlueHost customer service is US-based, which is quite rare nowadays (many hosting services tend to outsource their customer services). You can easily reach them through their toll-free number, email or live chat. The wait time is quite short and their experts will quickly help you with any issue that may arise. Their website also has a knowledge base where you can find video tutorials on how to fix the most common issue, and they also have a forum where you can discuss various topics with other members.


The BlueHost money-back guarantee can be demanded within 30 days after the account has been registered. SEO service fees, SSL certificates and backup services, as well as domain services and SiteLock are not refundable, however. If you cancel within 3 days from registration, you will get a full refund. If you cancel 3 to 30 days after your registration, you will get a refund, but any exceptions and subscription fees for extra services will not be refunded.


The biggest strength of BlueHost hosting is their shared web-hosting package. It has all the tools you need for managing your website and blog, and their knowledge base will provide additional information should you be unsure how to proceed. Their customer service will quickly give you a hand if you are stuck.

All their packages are efficient and have a multitude of tools that will help you manage your website with ease. Their one-click install offers are very popular with both beginners and intermediates.
