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.

BlueHost is the best web host service I've had the pleasure of doing business with. Great hands on customer support team that knows and understands hosting and wont waste your time when it comes to choosing the right plan. Great features and with reliable service. Offer good security and site measurement/statistics for my site which come in handy as we are always aiming for efficient scalability.

Their Up-times are impressive, and I know we made the right move when I switched to BH about a month ago. Customer service reps were a bit difficult to communicate with but my questions were answered. Very reliable. my recommendation stands with Blue Host.

Easy to manage

Bluehost makes it easy for us to manage our websites. With one plan we are able to host 5 domains at no extra charge. Paying the yearly rate got us some savings, but still was a hefty chunk to have to cough up at once. Wish the pricing was a bit better. But seems worth it for all stuff they offer
