Update: circa 2012 – Reviewer Smair Habib has done a new review of BlueHost. Check it out to see what’s changed.
“Thank you for your order from BlueHost.Com! We are excited to have you as our customer! In order to ensure your happiness we will make every effort to give you the best support available. ” -excerpt from the BlueHost welcome letter
I discovered BlueHost about 6 months ago and have been wanting to share some thoughts about this rising web hosting company that claims to have industry leading tech support and award winning hosting packages (what’s a host without an award). The feature that most piqued my interest was the ability to host six domains on one BlueHost account ($6.95 Per Month). BlueHost does this via cPanel control panel software. I set up a few domains and made a few customer service calls to Bluehost.com and overall received positive responses. I’m beginning to reach the conclusion that it’s beneficial to catch a web host while they are in the early stages of high growth.
We’ve now published a comprehensive hands on review of BlueHost. I’d like to think of the review as not just a snapshot, but ongoing. So if you’ve had experiences with BlueHost, positive or negative, please feel free to express them here.
On another note, Matt Heaton President and CEO of BlueHost Inc. began a blog a few days ago for the purpose discussing the Genesis of BlueHost and to write about some of the issues affecting the hosting industry in general. Matt’s first post has over 300 comments as of today. Nice batch of comments for a few days, I’d say!
