BlueHost Review Introduction
BlueHost Hosting Plans
This web hosting company offers many packages and plans based on their customers’ needs. These plans include features like: unlimited bandwidth, space, emails and many more. Their cheapest plan can go as low as $3.95 per month for shared hosting and as high as $149.99 for a dedicated server.
One of the selling point they leverage on is the fact that their data centers are backed up with UPS and diesel powered generators. To add, all accounts are backed up regularly to ensure that no data is lost during power interruptions or malicious attacks. Although this is true, it’s always best that account holders do their own backups frequently. They do not advertise the uptime of their servers on their website.
This company boasts that all calls that reach their toll free number in the US are answered within 30 seconds. Their support can also be reached through email and chat round the clock 365 days a year. A knowledge base directory is also available for their customers for self service.
BlueHost Control Panel
Like many hosting companies out there, they also provide all their clients with their very own cPanel account access to manage their emails, CMS and database configuration.
All new account sign ups (for shared servers) comes with a one year free domain name registration. Another extra feature their customers will find is the ability to install the most popular website CMS like WordPress, Drupal and Weebly.
BlueHost Money Back Guarantee and Cancellation Policy
Like most hosting companies, this provider provides their customers with a 30 day money back guarantee. It is worthy to note that other fees such as SSL certifications, SEO services and domain services are non refundable even within the 30 day period.
Because of their straightforward services and plans, this hosting company is best for those start up businesses which need a website immediately. However, for those who are anticipating a large amount of traffic everyday or a website owner who maintains a website with highly valuable information, we recommend that you choose fully managed dedicated servers.
