BlueHost shared web hosting review

BlueHost is another big web hosting company that provides quality web hosting services. With its shared web hosting Blue Host offers Unlimited Disk space, Unlimited Bandwidth (File transfer), Unlimited domain hosting (unlimited addon domains, you can host as many domains as you want), Unlimited E-mail accounts, Free domain forever (only one domain and as long as you are a BlueHost customer), Free site builder with templates, Secure Shell, SSL, FTP, Stats, CGI, Ruby (RoR), Perl, PHP, MySQL, 99.9% network uptime guarantee, $75 Free Google Credit, Free instant Set-up (No Hidden fees), Anytime money back guarantee (either 30 days or 45 days money back guarantee and after that the money back guarantee is pro rated and depends on the decision of the company.

 

BlueHost only offers one shared web hosting plan with multiple (year) term plans. Despite the term plan you choose (Be it 12 months, or 24 months, or 36 months) the price stays the same that is $6.95 per month. From what I see you can only sign up with them with a minimum of 12 months plan, that means you can’t pay them month by month by paying $6.95 this month and another $6.95 the next and so on. You need to pay the entire $83.40 at the time of sign up for the minimum requirement 12 month plan to get a hosting account with Blue Host. You could also choose to pay the 2 years plan (24 months) or 3 years plan (36 months) at the time of sign up with Blue Host.

 

When you sign up with BlueHost if you already have a domain name, then enter the domain name under the “I have a domain name” line in the “Enter domain name” field and click next to go to the account details, payment page. And if you don’t have a domain name, Under the “I need a domain name” search in the Enter domain name field your desired domain name. And if available then click “Next”. The first domain you register with Blue Host along with the web hosting account is free as long as you stay Blue Host customer. And if ever you want to move to some other web host then you will have to contact BlueHost staff regarding the domain you registered with them. Also, Note that you can also register more domains with BlueHost at the rate of $10 a year depending on the availability of the domains and the domain TLD extensions, as part of your web hosting account service.

 

Also, Note that at the time of sign up you will have some default services ticked in by default at some additional cost. The default services are SiteLock and Domain whois privacy (If you have registered the domain with BlueHost). The sitelock feature is to protect your website from malware, virus and other rogue treats. If you want it and are ready to pay for it, then you can leave it as it is and if you don’t want it then you can “untick” the check box and you won’t be charged anything since you opted out of the service. Same is the case with domain whois privacy, this service is to protect your domain ownership details from appearing on the web publicly. If you want it, you can leave it as is otherwise you can uncheck the box and then you won’t be charged anything. The pricing of Sitelock is $12.95 per year and the pricing of domain privacy is $9.95 per year. I suggest you get a domain with either namecheap.com or name.com (if you want domain whois privacy free) who offer domain privacy free for the first year depending on the domain TLD you choose.

 

And finally, Why should you choose BlueHost for you shared web hosting needs? I got some reasons for you why you should choose Blue Host. Blue Host servers are fast, Bluehost offers many unlimited features, Bluehost offers quality web hosting service, Blue Host offers VPS kind of resource protection for all its shared web hosting plans at no additional cost, Bluehost offers 99.9% uptime guarantee, Blue host company offers SimpleScripts to easily install many scripts with just a few clicks, and finally BlueHost offers AnyTime money back guarantee (pro rated).
