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.

It's already 3 years that I use Bluehost's services. I haven't any problems with support. I think everything is ok both for price and quality.

My first experience was so much easier than I imagined. Since creating my first site, I chose bluehost to create a second website. Once, I called to ask a technical question, and immediately got an "easy to follow" answer.

Has been a great service...

Bluehost has been a great service thus far...I've been a customer for a few years. The control panel is easy to use and intuitive. They offer everything from basic hosting to more sophisticated online tools. Any issues have been resolved with relative ease...once escalated to the appropriate support staff...and the online help FAQ are extremely useful. They are an easy to use and reliable service; I'd definitely recommend them to others.

Have had websites...

I have had websites hosted by companies and so I feel qualified to judge FatCow. Their support is great; their people know their stuff and are super friendly and helpful. They offer a wide variety of extras and I do appreciate their efforts to being green with their using wind generated energy. Also, their site is easy to navigate to get to where I need to go and find the things I am looking for. A good web hosting company.

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.
