29 Jul BlueHost Review by Clickfire
not reliable! Website has been going down everyday. loosing emails. tech sucks. they have no idea what is going on or when it will be fixed. they did remind me of the tos and that they dont have refunds.
What are the main selling points of BlueHost?
Cheap $6.95 per month rate
“Unlimited” bandwidth and disk space
24/7 U.S. Phone Support (no overseas outsourcing)
Since doing the review, we’ve seen BlueHost go through various changes, some positive, some negative (of course this is debated in the text version of the review comments). After watching the BlueHost Genesis over the years, one thing becomes apparent: under the leadership of Utah entrepreneur Matt Heaton, BlueHost’s aggressive customer acquisition model has propelled this provider to great heights in the shared cPanel web hosting arena.
Read more about the pros and cons and everything in between that we discovered in our hands-on BlueHost web host review. We logged in to BlueHost and called customer support. We looked at the BlueHost terms of service. We tested their user interface. Last but not least, we rated this and many other shared web hosts.

Here’s a copy of the video transcript of this review:
Hi I’m Dan Kenitz. You may remember me as a Clickfire contributor. But today, forget all that because we’re reviewing BlueHost, that web hosting company of the $6.95 variety.By the way, if you want to follow along, check out the BlueHost Review already written at www.clickfire.com. Here’s the link… oops, wrong button. Check out http://www.clickfire.com/bluehost-review/ for more details after this video.
Upon visiting BlueHost.com we ready know that BlueHost is a hosting company that comes with all the standard features:
phone support, control panel, plenty of bandwidth for most sane endeavors and reasonable pricing.There’s also a recently added free site builder.
A quick click of the sign up button gets us right to it. Before we start with anything else, what does the service cost? Funny you should ask that because I have a relevant link for you.
Over at Clickfire.com, we’ve already taken the liberty of laying it all out for you. Because the BlueHost package we found offers unlimited bandwidth and disk space the pricing structure will only break down by the amount of time you purchase it for:
Once you sign-up. like most hosting providers you’ll be put into the control panel or for you geniuses out there, cPanel. Bu all accounts, the panel works quickly and efficiently and won’t get in the way oof what you’re trying to do. Keep it simple, stupid.
Finally, for most people their choice in hosting service comes down to customer service. We at Clickfire gave this a bit of a test and found that it was very easy to talk to a human in a few minutes or less. When we did talk to them, we got the answer to our questions promptly. No problems there. Also, an email to customer service was returned with a response in just under an hour. Can’t beat that.
Overall, BlueHost is solid hosting provider even if it doesn’t have a lot of frills. The hard to find pricing does have a three month minimum on it. But, if you’re building a site for the long haul, that shouldn’t deter you. BlueHost has been reported to have a terms of service that gives them a lot of power.
