Bluehost
Reviewed by:
One of the oldest web hosts started in 1996, Bluehost has become the largest brand name when it comes to WordPress hosting. They are an official "WordPress" recommended hosting provider. You never have to worry about your website being slow even when there is alot of traffic. They also offer a Free Domain and a Free Site Builder with templates. Not to mention that they have a special offer for WPBeginner users.

    We’ve been using Bluehost since 2008 and wouldn’t use any other firm. They make everything easy from setting up a new site, to managing the content. And they have extremely fair pricing for a small business.

    We would highly recommend them to anyone looking (and do!) and to that end, we have even added services they offer to our regular hosting.

    Hello,

    I like Bluehost customer service the best. They are polite, speak English very well, and are very helpful.

    I like your prices also.

    I didn’t like the email servers getting blocked by AT&T servers, but I know you didn’t do that.

    Something I think all your techies should know that is if a customer can’t delete an empty subdomain folder, they need to delete the upper level url too.

    That’s it! Thank you for helping me to earn some pocket money.

    I always receive intelligent service/help when I call.
    Thanks to BlueHost

    I’ve been using Bluehost for about 6 months. So far, it’s been very good. I haven’t had any problems that I didn’t cause. The platform is stable. I’m happy with it.

  5. Diane Schuirman-Hagedorn says:

    We have had no issues with Bluehost. On the few occasions we’ve needed support responses have been prompt.

  6. Richard Force says:

    Very happy with Bluehost as a web hosting service; I highly recommend their services.

  7. Nina Rice says:

    Word Press is easy to work with and so glad to had Word Press to set up my website.

    Keep up the good work!

  8. Carol Knieriem says:

    Bluehost has been good for us as a webhost. We have been very disappointed that there is not a working calendar that we employees can share so we are probably going to seek google apps for non-profits in order to have a user friendly shared calendar.

  9. Rod Kirki says:

    I am a simple user of Bluehost. I have a couple of websites which are not very active due to things taking me away from spending lots of time on them. But, so far, the interaction I have had with the Bluehost staff and customer support, has been really good. I have no beefs.

    What would be good tho, is to have a resource that can be accessed which addresses various issues that might lead a customer to contact customer support for tweaking various parameters that only can be done by Bluehost. That would be a very valuable document to have access to and provide us, the customer with a good picture of what is the scope of things which can be changed or altered if needed. This would save us time in resolving things and probably lower the amount of time required to get to the root cause of some issues. What do you think?

    99% up time, 24/7 live customer care, Blue Host has been a life saver for me and my business.

  11. Kathy Dee Zasloff says:

    I have been a Blue Host customer for a long time…I know that I can depend on all the associates to assist me. I am a loyal customer and intend to continue.

    Keep up the good work.

  12. Barry Styles says:

    I’ve been using Bluehost for about three years now. As shared-hosting providers go, they are a notch above similar providers. Speed is above average compared to others I’ve used in the past. Though I haven’t needed their support staff a lot in the past few years, the few times I have, they’ve been responsive and friendly. I have just renewed my hosting account for another three years and I can honestly recommend Bluehost to anyone looking for a stable and dependable hosting solution.

    I always receive intelligent service when I call

  14. GM Sapper says:

    Prices are good, customer service is excellent . My only issue is the spam they always send me. I’mnot a business so their spam is useless to me. Other than that I recommend it strongly.

  15. J Flack says:

    A company that advertises being a WordPress leader doesn’t support a five year old WP feature called MultiSite.

    Each WP install uses a minimum of 5,000 files. If you have six or seven domains using WP, but only getting a few hundred visitors a month (think church, small club) then the installs use up nearly 40,000 files. Multi-site, configured properly, lets a user install WP once, and run multiple sites one that single install.

    Bluehost tech support says they don’t support that feature. I can see why it would help both parties if they did.

  16. Dave Ferguson says:

    Thanks for helping me to connect to my email while I was without internet.

  17. Minuard Jordan says:

    Great service and very professional. I think your email Spam Assassin should screen out spam better than it currently does. Thanks for all your qualified help over the years.

  18. Randy Martin says:

    I was a total newbie to this WP/website stuff 2 years ago. Thanks to the help I’ve received from the folks at BlueHost, I have produced a dozen sites for me and my clients. I can always get through when I have a problem and I’ve always gotten perfect and honest answers from them — even when I was the problem!

    I have several clients who have hosting support elsewhere so I know what a pain other places can be. I always encourage those clients to switch. And when they do, we are all happy.

    I have absolutely no complaints with the folks at BlueHost. I’m quite sure you’ll feel the same way once you get on board.

  19. Casey says:

    Wasn’t particularly happy to learn that I could not earn any affiliate commission unless it reached $100 within nine months. A bit of a rip off, considering I lose all revenue even though I am solely responsible for getting my one client to you.

  20. George Miller says:

    I am hosting 8 websites for clients and my own on bluehost…… have been using bluehost for over 10 years and have always received reliable help whether from chat, phone, or email. I am not a novice but I still run into problems at times and I have always gotten my problem solved with one contact. When i started converting all my sites to joomla! they were always there for my questions, no matter how trivial….. The only thing I can add is there are a good bunch of Good Ole’ boys!!!

  21. Juna Berry Madrone says:

    long waits for customer service. Excellent service when it arrives.

  22. Jerry Zacharias says:

    Completely happy with Bluehost and I would recommend it to others.

  23. Mark says:

    Bluehost has been our host for several years now. They have helped us navigate through many different issues with ease. They are very professional and take the time to help a novice learn the ropes. I have recommended them to anyone seeking a host.
