Avoid Bluehost Like the Plague
I admit that I was stupid to buy three years of Bluehost hosting at their high renewal rates. And my my experience with Bluehost was a disaster. Within the first year of my three years, the Bluehost server went down and my website was out for TWO WEEKS. Obviously, I can't allow this to happen a second time, so I has no other option but to switch to a more reliable provider. Because the 30 day refund period was over, Bluehost kept SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS of my money.
1. A very very slow hosting provider. It makes my website keeps lagging.
2. I've got a refund problem. I've been contacting them for 4 times, yet the problem hasn't been sorted out. Really terrible.
3. Ignorant customer service. Slow response and don't keep their promise.
Please please stay away!
Bluehost is one of the most popular web hosting companies in the world, especially among people launching their first site.
They offer great rates, and a beginner-facing platform that makes every aspect of running a website easy.
Most of the time Bluehost will walk you through a task the first time, like setting up a blog or email account on your site.
If you get stuck or have a problem, they have 24/7 support by phone or live chat. They list their support number and live chat options right on their site, so you can reach out for help within two clicks.
As user I do not recommend Bluehost to anyone. Bad experience. You will have to pay
more for chosing a good design and themes
Bad support and Communication. Very confusing. No credibility .Misinformation. You will not get what expect from them .loss of money
You are looking for a good host to boost Wordpress sites, then with BlueHost India's WordPress hosting plans you ll be able to do that effectively for the simple reason that they understand the platform really well and know how to support the same. I have had a very good experience, uptime, security, storage, these aspects are fitting and top notch.
I've been with them for about 5 years, they are fast and no problems in performance.
the main problem is the support service.
when you try to call -> no one picks up
when you try live chat you get 2 options:
1) new costumer -> gets an agent in seconds
2) old costumer -> chances to get an agent are slim to none
plus they sometimes bill you stuff that are not related, or stuff past expiration date that you did not approve or were given ANY notice about it what so ever.
Juts got a new retail listing blog/website up and running on WordPress, thanks to BlueHost. haven't faced any technical issues as such. Best part it that I got to choose a deal with a domain at a very cheap rate, on a discount and now I am reaping the benefits with a lot of users on the website. Security is great, they provide free SSL and codeguard for backup.
Bluehost is not as good as those writers said. After you purchase it, you will find a problem. Wordpress is hard to handle. If you buy a theme or other service from it, it is not refundable even if the payment collected through Bluehost, but they denied they could refund. They make things look like those additional services or products are included in the refund guarantee, but the reality is, it is NOT. They are separated, so your money will be eaten.
