Upload (WordPress theme) to Bluehost CPanel

A good piece of advise if you are thinking of #bluehost. I started hosting with them in may 2013. Just after a couple of months, my websites were down for more than 3 days. The only way to communicate with them was through Facebook. It may happen with any server, but their inability to communicate with the clients but only through Facebook is really sad. I started getting problems with my emails slowly. The emails from different domains/ different email accounts will stay in the outbox for hours before leaving. I sent them emails about it. They will reply back to me but the thread will be missing. They will keep asking silly question in their reply after a day or two. I never had any email problem sorted. I moved 5 domains to new hosting. I just do not want any other to get into this nightmare; hence wasting my time and writing this. WHen you google for #bluehost Bad service, there are many Davids, and Sharma’s talking so nicely about #bluehost in their blogs aor Hosting review sites. Beware!

    wpaudioplayer com is a plugin for playing audio. I'm not sure what you mean about adding bubbly energy effects, do you have an example?

    I'm an internet marketer for car dealers, and I love it! Haven't been in school in a long time, thank goodness.

    You know I was so frustrated that I couldn't get this to work that I almost clicked off of this because the initial sound quality made me even more mad. But now that I watched it and it fixed my problem I would like thank you very much.
