Bluehost primary, add-on, parked, and subdomains explained (& how to have 2+ WP sites w/Basic Plan)


Highly disappointed. I have moved from Godaddy to #bluehost 3 years ago on basis of bigger space and 99.9% uptime. Today my hosting company is not the same. I have developed business and hosted many websites of my customers; all are down much too often and too long each time. To move all my websites (20) to a new hosting company will be a challenge. I will have to hassle to keep my customers. They (Blue Host) should pay me for the loses and false promises. I am wandering if I can sue them.

    Thank you so much for this video. I have been considering switching over to Squarespace from WordPress thinking that Squarespace was more user-friendly, but the customization on Squarespace I'm finding is actually pretty limiting so I don't know what to do! Trying to figure out WordPress/Bluehost is so daunting!

    Great explainer… nice details. BlueHost is an easy choice because 20 subdomains is deep for cheap… Good job explaining DNS rules to create a SUB.Domain.com but I think you got a little to detailed and nonlinear… but overall great job!

    LOL! I am googling like crazy trying to figure things out, and I found your medium article which was great but very information dense… So I decided to go you youtube to see if I could find a video explination. Then I realized 6 months into the video that you are the same person who wrote the article I was on! Great job providing this info in different formats/ways
