Hosting is a billion dollar industry or maybe a trillion dollar, I don’t know for sure but since web hosting is such a big industry there a lot of web hosting companies like bluehost, hostgator, ipage, fatcow etc. Closer home too there are many hosting companies but I will not discuss them because I have a strong reason to believe that their uptime is not great. Today I will be discussing the benefits of choosing blue host as your web host. Yesterday I posted a review about Hostgator wordpress web hosting. Why another review? Its good to know about all the web hosts so that you can make an informed choice regarding whom to pay your money.
There are some features of bluehost and with this bluehost review I will shed light on all those features which are unique to it compared to other webhosts which I will discuss shortly:
- Unlimited hosting space
- Unlimited bandwidth. I don’t think many of us understand what it means but all of them say that bandwidth is unlimited. Just like your internet provider who says unlimited data but never provides it
- Hosting unlimited number of domains. That feature is fairly true. You can use as many domains as you want on the same account and bluehost is not going to stop you.
- Online support in the form of chat, email or phone 24*7*365. Yep that’s the first thing I look for in a web host. If I mess things up I need support.
- 99.9% uptime guaranteed which means your site may go down only once in a year for 1 minute. Well that defines uptime.
- DDOS protection. If you have heard of the recent attack on GoDaddy by anonymous then you must know that this thing screwed them. I can’t say that bluehost is 100% hacker proof but then they are at least making an attempt.
- 3000 GB monthly data transfer
- 2500 email accounts
- Unlimited disk space
Now for the real review of bluehost hosting packagesBluehost has the trust of millions of people, to be exact 1 million websites. Bluehost provides c panel as the control panel for its users which is the same I found on host gator. C panel allows you to easily install wordpress, joomla or any other type of content management system. What this means is that once you are on c panel you can easily choose where you want to build your website, A preferred option is wordpress. The script is easily installed with bluehost.
Bluehost is cheaper when thinking long termWhy I chose hostgator for my first website is because I thought short term. Hostgator has a monthly subscription option which is not available on bluehost. They charge in bulk and also try to sell additional offers like content backup which at first look seems costly but in reality the monthly subscription guys are being fleeced on hostgator. They are charged the heaviest and there’s nothing you can do about it. But if you have no cash then that’s the best thing you can do. Hostgator has actually made their weakness the strongest earning point.
