WHY YOU NEED a WEB HOST

Well its obvious really. Like us, you want or need to have your own website on the internet. Blog or E-shop, anything is possible for you personal or as a small or large company. The internet is the best marketing platform to make yourself known to the world. This is where the search for a good or the best web-host begins. Web-Hosting companies are plenty around, too many to be frank. They all cost money and its almost impossible to find the best around for a fair price. You just need to rely on reviews by trusted companies.

 

WHICH TOOLS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR

Free SSL certificate(s) are a bonus, as is a multiserver environment. If you only want hosting for ‘one’ website, most times a basic subscription will do. Another huge benefit is daily backups as you will find you sometimes need to take a step back after updating plugins and you end up with compatibility problems. Free domain will also save you some money spend, as this is your first step in creating your websites name for marketing and exposure.

SSL certificates (Positive Wildcard SSL) are included in all plans, meaning you will be able to sell online and process credit card transactions. Daily backups are also included, providing you a peace of mind – should something go wrong, there will always be a recent save for you to turn back to.

In terms of DDoS protection, each plan includes CloudFlare CDN. Of course, it is available free of charge for everyone already. It is also worth mentioning that every plan is using SSDs. This shows that Bluehost servers are up to date with the latest technology and that low disk space can be somewhat justified. You’re not getting basics – but you’re getting the best.

Larger companies probably will have their website ‘build’ by professionals. Its all about money, really. Private build customized websites can cost a small fortune if its complex, where you as a private person may opt for the easy way and get involved with pre-builds like WordPress. WordPress for dummies is NOT as easy as it may seem when you look at all finished websites created with WordPress or Joomla etc. However there is ONE real advantage why most people choose any of these builders (programs), and thats the No Coding necessity to accomplish a great looking website. Only programmers know how to code HTML, and these packages make all your problems disappear. Still after starting with WordPress or Joomla, it all comes down to your creative skills to make it look nice.
The next thing you will notice when running a website, is SPEED ! You want every picture to popup instantly, you want your website to Backup in case of accidents, you want your web-host to load your uploads fast, you want security, you want ‘Memory Cache’ to speedup loading-time. There is a growing wish for extra’s to serve your purpose. But WHO is offering all that and MORE for a fair price ? Don’t worry just keep reading and we will give you your best Christmas gift ever.

The FIRST and MOST important thing you’ll need when having your website hosted is good SUPPORT as you will initially need some help getting your website running or after website transfer which is a for more complex!! And believe me they all claim to have brilliant support, but there’s only a few really up to the task claiming 100% satisfactory. Bluehost has a solid service 24/7. To test their support and knowledge, we started a domain topic and response by Bluehost was in 2 minutes, so fast and great.

Bluehost has engineered an in-house chat software allowing users to select and rate customer service agents with whom they’ve worked/spoke previous time. Their cPanel with numerous tools needed to setup and maintain your website offers a good layout and is intuitive. One thing that is missing is the ticket based support system. Bluehost recently decided to eliminate ticket based support to focus on personal approach of live chat and phone based support. However, some users may still miss the ticket based support system which is particularly good if your issue cannot be resolved in one live chat or phone session.

PLANS

Bluehost offers five main types of hosting plans:

  • Shared hosting
  • VPS hosting
  • Dedicated hosting
  • WordPress hosting
  • Cloud Sites

 

  • Plans appear cheap at first glance, but not all of them are as cheap as they seem. You can get started for as little as $2.95 per month with shared hosting if you snag a deal like this.
    Otherwise, the Starter plan usually costs $7.99 per month, which is still quite reasonable.
  • Get unmetered bandwidth with all accounts.
  • The starter plan comes with 100 email accounts. The Plus and Business Pro plans offer unlimited email accounts.
  • Get up to $200 in marketing offer bonuses.
  • Enhanced cPanel makes it easy to configure and control your sites (see a demo here).

If you are looking for something inexpensive and basic, shared hosting is probably what you need. This is what most beginners and small businesses are shopping for. Dedicated hosting is the most expensive option, appropriate for large commercial firms that need full control of their resources.
All plans come with Positive Wildcard SSL, and 24/7 service and a money-back guarantee back them.

 

 

BLUEHOST cPANEL

 

 

PERFORMANCE

Up to this point, Bluehost has been impressive. Easy-to-use c-Panel interface and a spectacular customer support were the two main reasons for it. Server login – connections are blazing fast ! And the C-Panel is providing all the tools and information one needs. Its impressive and still easy to use for beginners and experts. Documentation on How To’s is impressive as well, as every topic aspect is described in easy to follow and understand guidelines. Their ‘uptime’ is impressive so is the ‘response time’ for connecting to a website.

VERDICT

To be honest I cannot find any flaws in this review making me say don’t buy. Right now they have a great offer for any new customer. If you are looking for Premium service, Free extra’s like domain and (1) free SSL, provide a solid hosting by Bluehost.
