BlueHost offers a “one-size-fits-all” shared hosting package that is custom-designed to provide a complete web hosting solution to individuals and business at a great value.
BlueHost has focused heavily on their infrastructure, and it shows in their fantastic 99.9% uptime performance average. What this means to you is that your sites will be accessible when your users visit them, with only seconds of downtime – if any – per year.
BlueHost’s data centers are equipped with hundreds of servers that are kept in peak performance condition by the BlueHost staff. BlueHost monitors their data centers 24/7 to ensure there are no issues with any piece of hardware or server infrastructure. With redundant data connections, power connections and backup generators, you can rest assured your web site and data are safe with BlueHost.
BlueHost’s clients can receive technical support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, either by phone or through BlueHost’s email and trouble ticket system. BlueHost also has a fantastic online frequently asked questions and knowledgebase area for those that prefer to self-troubleshoot minor issues that may pop up.
BlueHost offers a single hosting plan that includes everything that almost every web site owner will possibly need to host their website, including:
· One FREE domain registration with each account
· Unlimited disk storage space
· Unlimited data transfer and bandwidth
· Unlimited domains hosted
BlueHost offers some pretty deep discounts for those that are looking to prepay for their web hosting for 6, 12, or 24 months in advance.
BlueHost has been the recipient of more than two dozen awards, including being named both the Top Pick Host 2008 and receiving the 2008 Award for Best Customer Support. Some of the other praise that’s been awarded to BlueHost:

If you decide that BlueHost’s services are not a fit for you, or if you run in to any issues, you can cancel your account within the first 30 days and receive a full refund. A quick note: if you register a new domain name with your account and decide to cancel after three days of service, $10 will be deducted from your refund to cover the cost of your domain. You will, however, retain ownership of the domain.
