BlueHost is one of the better hosting companies I have tried and here a couple of reasons why I think that. For the low price of 4.95 you can get unlimited domain hosting, Storage, File Transfer, and E-mail Accounts. This makes it great for a small business which needs plenty of all of those. They say they have 24/7 support but for me it took a very long time to start chatting. You should note that the price 4.95 is only for the first term and after that the price is going to go up depending on if you want the Standard or Pro Plan. The Control Panel for your domain/hosting isn't that great and it is mediocre at best. I would recommend this to my friends because the price is nice and because they have 1-Click Script Installs for Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal and many more! In conclusion BlueHost is an excellent host.

Bluehost Introduction

BlueHost are known for two primary hosting plans (low cost shared hosting and reseller hosting), plus domain registrations. Founded in 2003 and based in an impressive 50,000 square foot head office, CEO Matt Heaton was in-post for eight years and oversaw much of the firm's development, both in terms of the business and the technical infrastructure. He recently handed over the top job to Dan Handy, the former COO, in order to concentrate on development.

BlueHost is part of a family that also includes FastDomain and HostMonster, founded in 2005 and 2006 respectively. The group of companies have now been purchased by Endurance International Group based in Boston, MA.

As a company, BlueHost pride themselves on superb customer support (for example, on their website, they boast a call waiting time of less than 30 seconds - a bold claim).

BlueHost is a good choice if you want 100% in-house services from a specialised team. Nothing is outsourced: the company have their own fibre connections, their own data centres spanning 20,000 square feet, and even their own custom Linux kernel running on custom-built servers. This makes them an ideal solution if you prefer to have one point of contact when you need help and support.

BlueHost Hosting Plans

BlueHost only provide Linux hosting, and they concentrate on providing a simple, generous web hosting package with huge space and bandwidth limits and competitive pricing.

Each of their packages is provided on shared servers, and prices are set depending on the length of the contract chosen. This places BlueHost firmly in the individual, non-profit and small business market, and makes them a good solid choice for PHP applications that don't tend to hog resources, such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and other lightweight CMS installs.

For those who need to set up their domain and emails, all the standard Linux provisions - such as Cpanel - are provided. This gives each user all the usual shell, SSL, PostgreSQL, Ruby on Rails, MySQL and scripting capabilities of a standard Cpanel host. SimpleScripts permits easy one-click installs for useful scripts and programs.

In addition to budget shared hosting, BlueHost also provide reseller hosting. They don't offer VPS, dedicated servers or cloud hosting.

BlueHost Uptime/Downtime

BlueHost's custom-built data centres provide all customers with power backups via UPS and diesel generator. In addition, all user accounts are backed up regularly (although it's always best not to rely on this if your data is particularly valuable).

The company don't make any headline claims about server uptime on their site: the most we could find was an offer of a toll-free refund policy should you leave as a result of a server outage. BlueHost do claim to monitor their servers round the clock, though, and their longevity in the hosting market - and dedication to controlling every minute detail of their hosting packages - does inspire confidence, despite the lack of any numbers.

Note that company don't provide any redundant or clustered servers whatsoever, so if your website availability is business-critical, consider spending more on a provider who does.
