BlueHost’s advanced technology is a reflection of its solid standing within the hosting industry. BlueHost builds its own custom Linux kernel.

This means that every aspect of your hosting service is managed and monitored by the one company, which can be re-assuring should you encounter any difficulties.

The data center is constantly monitored by trained technical staff and equipped with storage backup systems. There are mirrored storage backups that sure customers will never loose access to data. There is UPS/diesel backup power generator that make sure servers are up all the time.

    I’m not a techie at all. I am starting a new business on a shoestring budget so I opted for concrete5 for my web design. I think it’s VERY confusing to use and although I’ve learned a lot by trial by error, I’m very frustrated because I cannot get my page to look the way I want it to look. I think to go this route, you definitely need the assistance of someone with techie know-how.

    I am a floweriest from NYC, with a small clientele. I was interested in getting my store known in other areas of the city, and not only my street. So I’ve opened a site at BlueHost. I am not one of those techie guys, so my son helped me a bit. Setting up the site was a breeze. The customer support team was excellent. and the price – wel, you can’t really beat that.
    I highly recommend BlueHost.
    Have a rosy morning.

    As a long time domain user I can see why the ratings here are so high. This is a very feature rich enviroment that provides good growth potential.

    The only reason I have begun looking around after 10 years with iPower is because they are now chargibg to keep your personal information safe.

    For the price, BlueHost offers a pretty good bundle of features. Unlimited bandwidth and disk space, tons of e-mail and FTP accounts, a free site builder (which is very useful) and even a free domain name (if you already have a domain, you can transfer it to BlueHost and get a free renewal). BlueHost has just one hosting plan, which makes things really simple. I’ve always found their servers are very fast and reliable, and you will also find many useful features, such as support for various scripts and databases as well as SSL encryption. This helps keep my website secure, in addition to emergency backup storage and other protection and monitoring services. Overall, this host is a very well priced option for hosting websites while offering a great variety of features and services.

    I’ve tried using several other hosts, but I now host several domains at BlueHost. I’ve had hosts with awful customer support, and not all of them supported my scripts. BlueHost has excellent support staff, and supports all the software I use on my different sites. The control panel is also a breeze to use, but the most important part for me is really the customer service. Their staff is always friendly, knowledgeable, and responds quickly to all requests. They always follow up on all questions, and I’ve never been told they can’t handle a certain issue. They respond very effectively to attacks, restoring compromised files with almost no downtime. I can definitely recommend this host to any website owner.
