My Bluehost Review - See this In-Depth Web Host Review

 

I'm a happy Bluehost customer with two Bluehost accounts.

The 1st feature I couldn't believe while i stumbled onto Bluehost was i could host numerous websites as I wanted on a single account. Before using Bluehost, I used to be a member of a website building platform that charged me $300 annually for hosting inside them for hours access to their website builder for starters domain name. - Bluehost Review 

That's $25 monthly for one website. You can imagine how thrilled I was to discover being able to host an infinite number of websites for $6.95 per month with Bluehost.

In fact, within my sales inquiry call, I think I asked 3 times concerning this unlimited website hosting feature. I simply couldn't believe it.

For the heart of the matter.

My 2 Criticisms of Bluehost

 They don't let you know any system upgrades/updates which will result in websites being down temporarily. I called them concerning this and their response was they used to send out notices, but they would get numerous calls about the upcoming operation it's more trouble for all concerned than it was worth. Fortunately such upgrades/updates are really infrequent that it's no issue with me.
 Their website name availability search screen isn't very user-friendly. I actually search for domain availability at GoDaddy because it is a great interface. Once I find the domain name I need, I register it with Bluehost. - Bluehost Review 

Here is a domain registration tip: Make sure you set your domain name to auto-renewal (unless you're building a temporary websites). The very last thing you want to happen is usually to miss out on a domain renewal and lose your domain. Imagine building a website with 50 pages of content and achieving ranked only to lose the entire site because you didn't renew your domain name.
