  • Bluehost worked very well with Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, and other CMS packages.
  • Installing functions and features through the Cpanel was very easy with Bluehost.
  • Bluehost provided solid uptime performance without too many hiccups.
  • Bluehost provides extensive options for different server needs
  • Bluehost could improve its customer service offerings.
  • The host company needs to improve its cost effectiveness.
  • While Bluehost offers good security, it has some security breaches over the past year.
Bluehost is really well suited for hosting a CMS site such as a Wordpress blog or Drupal commercial site. It really excels at CMS packages and features. On the other hand, it is a bit less supportive for new users that only need a limited website or service. It can also be a costly service when compared to other hosting company offerings. While it offers solid performance on average, other hosting companies may offer faster server performance. Since its customer service has become less than helpful, less experienced site managers may want to look elsewhere.

Bluehost is able to grow with you. We started with a very basic hosting package and over the years we now have nearly 50 websites hosted with Bluehost.

We develop websites and custom digital marketing strategies for businesses of all shapes and sizes. We have used Bluehost in the past when a client was looking for a value priced hosting plan. For the price, it is a good hosting plan, however, we have recently made a transition to a higher powered, more expensive platform.

  • Good website speed and uptime.
  • Great hosting and domain pricing.
  • Good customer service.
  • Easier access to domain control and SSL integrations.
  • Better capabilities for WP based sites.
Great platform for a business that is just getting started, or does not have the finances to afford a high end platform. We run a pretty busy agency with lots of websites needing specific criteria. For those reasons, we now exclusively use a different platform.

Bluehost is an ideal solution for a user who has slightly more than minimal amount of devops knowledge. Particularly if you are looking to deploy LAMP stack applications or elementary Ruby on Rails apps, Bluehost is an ideal platform. Overall, hosting domains is effortless on Bluehost, and they make that incredibly easy for their users.
