Overall Satisfaction with Bluehost

I use Bluehost, currently, for all of my own personal projects as well as hosting for other people. The use of the Bluehost service allows me to provide an all-inclusive solution for all of my needs as well as others. I use it for hosting, e-mail, file serving, and even hosting apps and services built on different languages and frameworks.
  • Bluehost has outstanding support.
  • Bluehost's e-mail service has always been top notch. The e-mail services and software that are provided are easy to configure, easy to implement.
  • Bluehost has some inconsistencies in their billing practices. I would appreciate a bit more transparency into their billing process, and billing representatives being advocates instead of customer service representatives.
  • Bluehost's functionality for delivering Ruby on Rails apps is sometimes confusing and difficult to implement.
  • Bluehost's support for NodeJS needs some serious improvement.
  • Bluehost does not make it easy for devops to make config changes to Apache.
  • Bluehost has dramatically reduced the time it takes to deploy sites and services. This means that there is zero cost between development and deployment.
  • Bluehost has made it difficult to move my sites and services off of their platform, as their domain registry services are missing some significant features. This increases the overall cost when/if a migration occurs.
  • Bluehost's e-mail services are an incredible asset to all of the products deployed. Huge ROI.
Bluehost's VPS offering gives me full control over my container which I don't get with DreamHost. The size of the container is much more desirable for hosting multiple products, over and above DigitalOcean, and the control panel for Bluehost is far more intuitive than AWS'.
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.
