BlueHost… Probably the best Hosting Company in the World!


A couple of weeks ago I ran in a bit of trouble with my blog, in short there was a fault with one of the plugins which caused my blog to not load correctly. Naturally on a Monday morning with a severe hangover and a headache, I panicked and made the whole thing disappear of the face of the planet.

I spent the whole morning and lunchtime trying to get my blog back online and just when all hopes were lost, I man named Jason from BlueHost came to the rescue, and within half an hour I was back online and back in business.

“Nice story, tell it to readers digest!”

My point is? I’ve been with many hosting companies in the last 10 years including Hostgator; who’s still sending me billing reminders for something I cancelled over 5 years ago! and by far the best I’ve come to use is no other than BlueHost.

Not just for their impeccable 24hour dedicated customer service via email, telephone and live chat, but also for the fact that their platform is so simple to use it’s almost hard to believe and with an array of tools and features too.

“Even an old man like me with a few marbles rolling around upstairs can use it?”

Some will argue that features offered by BlueHost are on semi-par with the likes of HostGator, such as site building tools and PHP5 supports and a few others to name, I find the cPanel of BlueHost however a lot more aesthetically pleasing and better laid out but that could well be a personal preference.


If I had to be real picky I’d probably wished that BlueHost offered a more flexible hosting plan for shorter terms and some kind of discount for longer hosting packages. However the $6.95 a month paid yearly at $83.40 which is the only plan available isn’t too bad considering you get unlimited everything from domain hosting, GB hosting space, GB file transfer, Email accounts and site builder tools, SSL, FTP, Ruby, PHP and more.

WordPress Blog Installation

If you’re looking to launch your own self-hosted blog using WordPress or Drupal or Joomla it doesn’t get any easier than BlueHost, as with many top hosting companies now offer a one click installation feature provided through SimpleScripts.

“Ok, ok… so what?”

Plus Points

  • Unlimited Everything.
  • One Click Install of WordPress as well as Joomla, Drupal and many more.
  • Completely Affordable.
  • 24 hour Customer Support, Live Chat and Email.
  • Fantastic Affiliate Opportunity.
  • 99.9% Network Uptime Guarantee, which means rarely if at all even seeing your website offline!
  • Test Drive cPanel, meaning you can check out the tools before you commit to buy.

Bad Points

  • No other plans offered for short term commitments, single hosting package only, but who really cares?

In my own humble opinion I’d definitely opt-in for using BlueHost for my blogs or website projects. If you’re serious about building a professional website then BlueHost is the hosting company you need to be using.
