BlueHost is an award-winning web hosting brand, one of the best web hosting 2012, with over 15 years' experience serving for millions of domains and having over 20,000 new customers in a month.

BlueHost devotes to offer an all-in-one web hosting package from the start, designed for personal and small businesses. Their web hosting features, reliability, security, performance and customer service are all unmatched with the budget pricing at $3.95/month, about 50% discount from the regular $6.95/month in addition to a free domain name for life and $75 free Google AdWords voucher.

Unlike other web hosts fully utilizing 3rd-party solutions, BlueHost is also a high technical company. They customize Linux kernel particularly for shared web hosting, optimizing performance, enhancing security, and restricting over-using resources by some bad users. BlueHost also developed the online application installer SimpleScripts by themselves in 2008, which was designed to help web hosting users unfamiliar with web technologies to get their website built up simply. It's similar to Fantastico of cPanel, but actually works much better.

The killer part is that BlueHost is the only company has their own data center offering shared web hosting service. BlueHost invested 8.5 millions of USD to build up an approximately 12,000 square ft sized data center in 2010. So far, they have invested tens of millions of USD on the data center. The huge investment is valued actually. It allows them to have the capability to take care of servers and network much more efficiently than other web hosts.

As a historical and reputed company, BlueHost is absolutely trust-worth. They have no hidden fee, and provide instant set-up and ANYTIME money back guarantee. To learn more, visit http://www.bluehost.com for more information.

BlueHost Overall Editorial Review Editorial Overall Rating: 5.05.0 of 5

With everything required for building a website in one package, millions of the existing customers as witnesses, and the terrific reputation since 1996, the BlueHost professional hosting plan is highly recommended by our editors for personal and small businesses who are looking for a reliable web hosting for their sites.

As we reviewed over a hundred web hosts, there is no one elsewhere having so good reputation as BlueHost in the community, but offering the shared web hosting plan at an affordable price $3.95/month.

Unlike some web hosts only accept payment from credit card and offer only 30 days money back guarantee, BlueHost supports the payment via both credit card & PayPal, and provides ANYTIME money back guarantee. In this case, you don't need to worry about that your privacy data may be leaked, your money may be stolen illegally, and your purchase may not be valued. Choosing BlueHost is a right choice to put your money and website in safe.

BlueHost Performance Editorial Review Editorial Performance Rating: 5.05.0 of 5

BlueHost commits a 99.9% hosting uptime in practice, by their customized Linux kernel and own managed data center, besides powerful web servers.

BlueHost customized Linux kernel by themselves for better running shared web hosting businesses than their peers. Their Linux platform allows to segregate CPU, Disk I/O and memory used by all clients hosted on one server. So as a user, you don't worry about that your system resources may be stolen by some bad neighbors and your website data may be leaked in the shared web hosting environment.

BlueHost is the only shared web hosting company owns the data center by themselves, invested about 10 millions US dollars in 2010. That allows them to be more flexible on offering the timely customer support, and taking care of the hosting environment. BlueHost data center utilizes 4 separate physical fiber lines brought directly into building through two diverse entrances with access to all major IP/transit providers. Their internet connection is auto adaptable and verbose for any unpredictable interruptions.

BlueHost ControlPanel Editorial Review Editorial ControlPanel Rating: 5.05.0 of 5

BlueHost offers easy-to-use, time-tested, and approved cPanel control panel, which comes loaded with many excellent features on the user interface. The navigation menus are easy for any sorts of new users to get started; the icons are created for each feature in the control panel; the help documentation is easily accessible next to each feature.

Compared to other web hosts, BlueHost has customized cPanel by integrating with the billing account system, SimpleScripts, and CPU throttling feature. It's very convenient for users to manage all the things about web hosting with single account.
  • SimpleScripts is an application installer software developed by BlueHost founder Matt Heaton, which is designed to help users quickly and simply install web application to their websites. It's similar to Fantastico of cPanel used by some web hosts, but it's better on user experience and UI design rather than the latter one.
  • CPU throttling is the feature allows users to see the system resources used by their websites. It comes from the BlueHost Linux kernel customization on protecting system resources of each customer by segregating CPU, Disk I/O and memory used by all clients hosted on one server.

BlueHost Support Editorial Review Editorial Support Rating: 5.05.0 of 5

BlueHost customer service is unmatched to the fee they charged. At only $3.95/month, BlueHost offers 24/7 US based toll-free telephone, live chat, email and ticket system support. BlueHost has over 400 employees on supporting shared web hosting clients only. All of their staffs are well trained, experienced and knowledgeable in this area.

As you may learn from the fact that BlueHost is the only shared web hosting company which can customize and develop solutions to their clients, from the Linux kernel, SimpleScripts, to the control panel. BlueHost is not only a web hosting provider, but it's a web hosting technical company.

Choosing a web host with 15 years' industry experience like BlueHost, you don't need to worry about the customer service. They are very careful about their reputation in the community.
