First of first, history of BlueHost?

The main page of BlueHost at the moment.

Before I start, do you know that we have listed Bluehost already in our Best WordPress Hosting Segment? Without checking out on the history and going right to the core of this review of the BlueHost, it is the total wrong.

Totally wrong.

So, we need some historical check actually checked for BlueHost.

Start then.

What is BlueHost?

BlueHost is of course, the web hosting providing company that is in business since long. And, is among the world’s top 10 best web hosting companies.

When it came into the world?

That when it emerged into the world.

Well, it was Matt Heaton who went on to produce the web hosting company named BlueHost in year 2003.

Who is the real owner of BlueHost?

Until 2010 Matt Heaton was the founder and then he sold the company to “EIG Endurance International Group and was promoted as CEO where he stepped down from the office in year 2011.

Size of the BlueHost?

Well… Sizer matters, no? 🙂 But here we are to know the size of BlueHost.

By the way, BlueHost has a big wide facility for its in-house servers which is having the area of 50,000 square feet covered in Provo, Utah, U.S.A and employs around 700 folks to operate its all of the business.

And servicing over 2 million of the websites! That is huge, isn’t it?

Winning the awards!

BlueHost is in the business since 2003, and is among top 10 web hosting providing companies. So, how can it skip from not getting the awards?

And here comes one from PCMag

BlueHost Winning Business Choice Award 2018 - PCMag

PCMag awards BlueHost as the winner of Business Choice Award 2018 under the category of “Web Hosting.”

Worth the winning for BlueHost, right?

Not just this but BlueHost does hold so many awesome awards and winning spots.

The business execution

BlueHost Business Execution

We now need to know the exact details about the BlueHost’s business.

Why?
Because that is the core of the thing we want to know out of this beautiful BlueHost review. 🙂

So, can we start now?

Yes?

Then alright. Let’s do it.

And you either pay through credit card OR just by PayPal.

  • Pay by credit card
  • Pay with PayPal
So… Pay by Credit Card

BlueHost Pay by Credit Cards

You got Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express.

Well, these are the credit cards name and nothing else. 🙂

If you have any one of them, you are so ready to buy the BlueHost service(s).

Pay with PayPal

BlueHost Pay With PayPal

This option and the payment method is the most-popular around the globe.

And many people just turn off the thought or the sense of buying off of the site when they see no PayPal option.

No PayPal is NO SELL in most cases.

So, thank goodness BlueHost has it!

Money-back guarantee

BlueHost Money back guarantee

The money-back guarantee of BlueHost is definitely here, and they have the limitations and restrictions too.

You can easily ask for the refund within the 30-days time period from the time of subscribing.

But… This money-back guarantee is definitely NOT for all of the products and the add-ons and it only applies on the web hosting AND NOT on domains, and etc.

  1. You published an advertisement with content taken directly form its website. You did not address the most important issues and most of what is above it trash that means nothing to buyers.

    You didn’t discuss backups and how the firm restores old site content over new content. Or the subterfuge and negligence of tech support when it really counts for the IT teams that know what goes on behind the fluff of marketing BS.

  2. I am in my fourth year of hosting my first-ever website on Bluehost, and I have had no problems or down-time. So far so good. A+++

  3. I switched from another host because of frequent outages & poor customer service.

    I have a company website and we want to be available online for every time.
    Bluehost has been a great choice, though I was little confused before buying it. But It was easy to transfer my website with very available customer support. The dashboard is easy to understand & navigate [Although it took me time to get used to of it]. The price is a good value. They are an excellent choice for WordPress hosting.

  4. Great hosting. Excellent prices. I have never had any trouble with the hosting. Anything I need to update, I am told in advance.
