Anybody use BlueHost?
« on: November 30, 2012, 07:51:45 AM »
I'm not wild about GoDaddy, and HostGator doesn't have some feature I want. BlueHost seems to be well regarded, but some input based on personal experience would be helpful.

Sorry I can't help, but would be interested in what features you want that HostGator doesn't have.  I'm on HostGator and wondering if I'm missing out on something that I didn't think of.

My company uses BlueHost. No complaints at all.

I use HostMonster.  Offer is about the same, but HM is a dollar cheaper.  Been with them four years now, and never had an issue.

Turns out I was mistaken on this point, thereby demonstrating the need for idiot-proofness! :o

Back when DH and I were raising/selling livestock, I used bluehost. It was easy to set up a professional website (even for an amateur), and I never had any complaints with them.  And whenever I had a question, their customer service was really quick to answer and provide easy to understand support if needed, too.

I don't use BlueHost, but I do use HostGator which is about as idiot-proof WordPress hosting as you can get.  The installation is "push-button" and from there you are working with WordPress.  I've been with them for 2 or 3 years now with no problems.  I wouldn't hesitate using HostGator, but it seems BlueHost is just as good from other comments.

We use Bluehost and Godaddy and Bluehost has been a very good experience.

I have used Bluehost for over a year and have no complaints. I chose them because of their good track record and they had some other advantages over the competition. I have never had a problem with Bluehost and they even helped fix a problem when I first started out and it was a Wordpress problem not theirs. Customer service was fast, efficient and American.

I don't have any experience with another host so I cannot give the best review, but Bluehost has given me no reason to look elsewhere.

I have used both bluehost and hostgator for several years, but I eventually just switched everything to HG when they offered a crazy price to users, for the premium service allowing as many sites as you want under your account....and I only do WP...no complaints here
