Chilean web hosting brand Bluehosting provides personal and business web hosting from SSD servers based in a Tier III data center in Chile.

Overview

bluehosting

Bluehosting is a Chilean web hosting brand of Haulmer, Inc., which has a Tier III data center in Chile. It provides SSD web hosting, VPS, reseller hosting, domain registration, and SSL certificates.

The Bluehosting website is available in Spanish.

Features and Ease of Use

All of Bluehosting’s shared hosting plans use Dell Intel Xeon servers with SSD drives, and they all share the same features except for how many domains are allowed and whether you get a domain for free. The entry-level shared plan includes one hosted domain, the second shared plan allows two hosted domains, and the third one allows unlimited hosted domains with one domain included for free.

The features of the basic shared hosting plans include:

  • Free domain with some hosting plans
  • Website builder
  • Free migration from another provider
  • Unlimited data transfer
  • Unlimited disk space
  • Unlimited databases
  • SSL certificate included
  • 24/7 customer support
  • Data backups
  • cPanel
  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • 9% uptime

For small to medium sized businesses or individuals with higher hosting needs, Bluehosting offers SME hosting plans that come with unlimited disk space, 1-12 hosted domains, unlimited email accounts, CDN service, and one free domain.

CMS hosting is offered in the form of dedicated WordPress and Joomla hosting plans. The Joomla plan, for example, includes free Joomla installation as well as video tutorials to help you get up and running with this system.

Every hosting plan comes with a free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate that users can upgrade by purchasing a GeoTrust or Verisign certificate.

Pricing and Support

Bluehosting’s web hosting plans are very affordable and are competitive with international hosts as well as other Chilean providers. The entry-level plan with unlimited storage and bandwidth, unlimited email accounts and databases, and an SSL certificate, costs less than the price of a fast food meal per month. And the WordPress and Joomla hosting plans, which include unlimited storage and a free domain, are priced below many more famous web hosts offering similar features.

Plans can be purchased on one-, two- or three-year terms, and you get a discount for longer-term plans. Compared to the cost of an annual plan, the two-year plan is 34% less expensive, and the three-year plan is 40% cheaper.

Bluehosting provides 24/7 support by telephone, email ticket, and live chat. I contacted the company via live chat during a weekday morning (Chilean time) and received fast and helpful support:

For self-support, Bluehosting has a comprehensive documentation section (in Spanish) on the website of its Haulmer parent company.

Bottom line on Bluehosting
