Your personal background.
Having helped thousands
of users choose a web
plan and start their website, we have answered just
about every question you can think of. Here are some of the
most frequently asked questions about Bluehost. Which Bluehost
plan should I get? The answer really depends on what are your hosting needs.
If you’re just starting out, then we recommend starting with the Bluehost shared web hosting plans.
If you’re starting an online store, then we recommend using their WooCommerce
cloud hosting which is specifically designed
to handle eCommerce websites. Where are Bluehost
servers located? Bluehost servers are located in Provo, Utah and Houston, Texas.

Can Bluehost handle high traffic? Bluehost can most definitely
handle high traffic. It all depends on which plan you’re on. If your site starts
consuming too much resources, then Bluehost will ask you
to upgrade to a higher plan. Can I upgrade my Bluehost plan later?
We always recommend users to start with the smaller plans and upgrade as needed.
Bluehost makes it very easy for you to upgrade. Does Bluehost offer a month-to-month payment option?
Bluehost does not offer month-to-month payment options
for their shared plans. For higher plans like VPS and dedicated servers, they do
offer monthly payment options.

Although it’s important to note that they offer significant discounts for longer-term deals.
Can I create subdomains in Bluehost? Yes, you can easily create subdomains in Bluehost
using the cPanel. Do I have to register my domain name with
Bluehost? No, you do not have to register your domain with Bluehost.
You can use Godaddy, NameCheap, or any of your preferred domain name registrar.
Although Bluehost does offer free domains to our users, and it does help keeping them all in one place.

Does Bluehost offer free SSL? Yes, Bluehost offers free SSL with all of their
plans. Ecommerce plans come with dedicated IPs and private SSL.

Do I need to purchase the addons that Bluehost is offering
me? No, you do not need to purchase any addons at the time of purchase.
Should you decide that you need them later, you can always
add them to your account. Does Bluehost offer a free CDN?
Bluehost does not offer a free CDN, but they integrate with Cloudflare’s free CDN service.
What is Bluehost domain privacy protection? Bluehost domain privacy protection allows you to keep your personal information private.
Can I create an ecommerce site on Bluehost? Absolutely.
Bluehost’s WooCommerce web hosting plan comes
pre-configured with all the things you need to start an online store.

3.95 per month and includes one domain and up to 25 sub-domains.
Bluehost also offers more dynamic sites through their virtual private servers (vps) and dedicated
servers for higher plans. Bluehost is sure to
provide a service plan for whatever your needs may be,
great or small. Bluehost web
is a long established business,
owned and operated by Endurance International Group. Their overall ability to retain customers since
1996 shows a dedication to the field and an expert understanding of hosting needs.
Websites hosted by Bluehost perform on par with many other host companies.
Bluehost offers a guaranteed maximum uptime and 24/7 technical support.

These features are useful for everyone, whether you
choose the smallest or largest plan. Bluehost’s uptime and downtime really depends partly on the type of plan you ordered.
If you’re on a shared server, the range can be quite dramatic
depending on the needs of your fellow shared sites.The dedicated server have better
generally results. Why does this matter? Of course, you want the best uptime you can afford if
your website is an e-commerce site of any type.
My team kept track of uptimes for HostGator for the last seven months using real time uptime tracking powered by Host-Tracker.

Websites hosted by Bluehost may be fast or medium-fast, depending on many

Again, this may matter little to the website sharing
family photos and stories, but for those with a business to consider, the uptimes and
downtimes are a little on the average side. Note:-Both web hosting
pages are exactly same, i.e. they have same page size, design, request and images.
Bluehost offers 24/7 customer support via a simple online form, toll free 1-800 phone number, and a knowledge
base for useful self-help answers. There are also user forums where site owners or developers can ask questions to others
for help. And a video tutorial series aids for those of us inclined towards
an interactive learning style. Their Live chat team
doesn’t seem to be knowledgeable enough to handle
some complex issue, its quit irritating to see them transfer some small issue
to their ticketing team.

Note: Although customer support is advertised as being 24/7, it should also be made clear that this refers to technical support.
Phone questions about billing, sales, or renewals
can only be answered during dedicated operating hours.
Bluehost has continued to improve its overall services over the past
two years. The server speeds have slowly increased and the downtimes have shortened.
Bluehost has not made any significant waves in website web hosting
trends or popularity, but yet maintains a healthy stability.

The most recent introduction was in 2013 with their dedicated and
virtual private server (VPS) web hosting options.
Bluehost’s backend is where the company really shines.

Many first-time users note that the interface is easy to navigate and
operate. Those with no web hosting
experience can easily slip into the control panel to learn and try new things.

There is also the ability to control multiple websites from within one account, a feature useful to resellers and website
developers. Migration services. Already been web
your site somewhere else? Use Bluehost’s easy migration service to help transfer your
site to Bluehost. Quick start services. This service is for those
who have no experience with building a website.
You’ll get one on one training on exactly what to do.

. Want to earn a little extra money by
offering hosting services to your customers?
It’s easy with their re-seller program and cPanel interface.
Easy cancellation. Cancel at any time and no monthly contracts.
Bluehost offers all accounts a full refund if cancelled within the first 30 days of service.
However, they also offer a cancel anytime policy,
which would provide a pro-rated refund for users who want to
cancel any time after the initial order. There are also no contracts, just simple and affordable monthly pricing.

Additionally, there are no hidden cancellation fees,
so truly if you want to cancel you are free to do
so. Overall Bluehost is a fairly stable host with typical control features, average load time,
and 24/7 technical support. For many site owners, Bluehost
is a fine fit with a great price. They are in the top 20 hosting service providers in the world, so they are a trusted source for web hosting expertise.

Bluehost provides unlimited disk storage, domain hosting, POP3 and IMAP secure e-mail accounts,
forwarding e-mail accounts, add-on domains,
parked domains, subdomains, and site transfer.
It uses cPanel control panel,
a file manager, and has three webmail clients in case you want to manage things from your browser.
They also have FTP access. Other features include customizable error pages
and Cronjobs, log files and site statistics, and spam assassin protection. Many CGI
and database options are supported. This includes JavaScript, DHTML, Flash, and other programming languages that do not require add-ons or script installations.
Free website scripts include form mail, message forums,
social networking, blogging platforms, poll and survey software, Joomla CMS, and many more.
Almost all of these are one-click installations.
Commerce features include password protected directories, SSL secure server, and numerous shopping carts.

Bluehost also supports multimedia.

With all of these features, even neophyte webmasters should be
able to do anything they can think of on their sites without too much trouble.
You can even try out the services using Bluehost’s live demo.
Bluehost has a Getting Started wizard and library full
of video tutorials to help you along the way. There is also a knowledge base filled with FAQs.
If you get stuck, they provide 24/7 customer support by phone, customer ticket, and live chat.

They even offer postal mail support, though you probably will
not need that. 5.00US per month. They also have an affiliate and reseller program to help offset your hosting costs or
simply generate a little extra income. 100 in Google AdWords credits.
Though it sounds like a lot, you are certain to blow through that quickly.

This means that you will have to work to get the word out and promote your site.
Overall, Bluehost stands up quite well when compared
to other hosting companies. While it may not be
the cheapest, it offers more than enough features for almost any type of
website and its technology and customer support are top-notch.
Definitely a web hosting company to look into if you are planning on developing an e-commerce site.

BlueHost’s WordPress-optimized web hosting is not cheap.
However, this isn’t just shared hosting with some optimizations to make WordPress run well.
Their WordPress hosting is powered by their
VPS platform with a customized architecture specially designed to make WordPress sites as fast as possible.
That means they run PHP-FPM as well as NGINX instead of Apache.
BlueHost also understands that WordPress hosting shouldn’t only be
about performance. That’s why they include a custom WordPress-centric control
panel to help make running a WordPress site easier for anyone.
Of course, this also includes their MOJO Marketplace offering, which offers additional plugins and
themes beyond the WordPress marketplace.

To keep your WordPress site secure, every plan includes
SiteLock Security and automated backups. Your best alternative to their WordPress web hosting would be to get any reputable VPS hosting and
configure the server to run NGINX and PHP-FPM.
Then you would want to set up CloudFlare on your domain and enable
caching to speed up your site’s load time.
You’d also need to make sure you install some sort of security plugin like Sucuri and perform
the hardening tasks in there. These are just
a few of many optimizations that must be done to WordPress run fast and securely.
Or you could just let BlueHost take care of it all:
If you’re looking for a fast, reliable and affordable WordPress web
option, we can highly recommend BlueHost.
Get started with BlueHost now. Bluehost is well known as one of
the top web hosting providers,
boasting of over 2 million websites.
