Although Luxembourg-based BlueHosting.com’s website doesn’t display the exact year when it was founded, it does say that it has been operating in the hosting field for nearly ten years, during which time it has catered to more than 15,000 clients. The English-language website advertises shared hosting, virtual servers, dedicated servers, reseller hosting, domain services, SSL certificates, and SEO tools.
Parent company Zonat S.A. also owns some other internet services brands.
Features and Ease of Use
BlueHosting.com offers four shared hosting packages, four VPS packages, five dedicated server packages (for Linux or Windows), and four reseller hosting packages. The shared hosting packages provide you with:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- 10 GB to unlimited web space
- 100 GB to unlimited bandwidth
- 2 to unlimited websites
- cPanel control panel
- 10 to unlimited email accounts
- POP3, SMTP, IMAP
- MySQL plus phpMyAdmin
The hosting packages provide a one-click app installer that helps you install a plethora of popular applications without having to be a web expert. You also get a free website builder that lets you create a professional-looking website without having to code it from scratch.
Once your website is up-and-running, you’ll want to promote it using the free and pay-for SEO tools. And if shared hosting won’t be enough for your needs, you can choose a VPS with free DDoS protection.
Pricing and Support
BlueHosting.com’s shared hosting packages are competitively priced, but beware that the advertised prices are for a minimum annual term. Other available billing cycles are monthly, biennial, and triennial, with a 30-day money-back guarantee to get you out unscathed within the first month if you’re not entirely happy.
You can pay by PayPal, bank transfer, credit/debit card, direct debit, SOFORT/Giropay/IDEAL/Bancontact/EPS, or cryptocurrencies.
