Founded in 1996 by Matt Heaton, Bluehost is one of the top twenty largest web hosts. Together with its sister companies, HostMonster and FastDomain, Bluehost hosts over 1.9 million domains. Bluehost puts a premium on customer service, and most hold times are less than 30 seconds. Headquartered in Utah, Bluehost has two secondary data centers, and a nationwide fiber network.
 

Prices start at:
Promotional pricing starts at $3.95/mo for professional, instant web hosting. Includes unlimited email, unlimited data storage, unlimited domain hosting, network bandwidth and MySQL databases; no setup fee; domain registration free for one year.
 

Reliability:
The BlueHost Blog notes network outages and what the team at BlueHost did to fix the problems. However BlueHost does not have either a reported uptime or an SLA.
 

Site Builder Tools:
BlueHost has over 60 1-click installation scripts, including WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Roundcube, Zen Cart, phpBB, PrestaShop, and Concrete5. BlueHost also uses Weebly, a powerful site creator with videos and pictures.
 

Editor's Bottom Line:
BlueHost has the usual offering of shared, virtual, and dedicated hosting, as well as tools to get you started. But BlueHost doesn't have enough niche features, powerful tools, sales, or service guarantees to stand out from the pack.

What always separates the good from the average hosting sites is the help provided. With Fat Cow you always feel separated from the herd (special)and your help is udderly fast.

Great staff

Super helpful customer service reps, very well trained. Refereed some of my friends and they are just as happy. Been a loyal member since 2010, and it looks like its going to stay like that.

Self explanatory hosting

Very simple, self explanatory site. The customer support rep was doing his job correctly and was hands-on. The services are fairly cheap. I haven't really experienced any issues with my VPS. Took about 20 minutes to setup. Great Job Blue Host
