BlueHost provides a free domain name, a site builder with templates and instant set-up feature. There is an anytime money back guarantee, 24/7 support, £150 worth of offers including Facebook and Google advertising credits.
The Mojo marketplace adds open-source features with one click installation for greater customization options. All this is provided for the discounted price of £2.25/Month for the first term. The starter price provides a very competitive service, however, it’s not without good reason that BlueHost are considered one of the best website hosting companies.
For additional fees, there are some good extra services available, BlueHost compete better when offering more than unlimited bandwidth web hosting. There is the quick start option for £23.99, which gives you extra one on one tuition to get your website up and running and extra support while you get the hang of all the features available with the package you’re using. For £75 you can get a migration package, which provides seamless transfer of your website to Blue Host.
There is a Pro option for £15 per month which includes a 5x server package, dedicated IP, domain privacy, SSL certificate, PRO backup plus and four anti-spam email accounts. This upgraded option is the sort of package that BlueHost are known for, but the price is a bit steep compared to other providers. There’s an optimised WordPress package with prices ranging from £19 monthly afterwards to £129 per month; it is a good set of packages providing stress free services suitable for entry level bloggers to huge corporate needs, but the prices start very high for the website hosting.
The niche that BlueHost have chosen for themselves is the higher-end of the website hosting, they offer a wealth of features that are very useful for anyone with more complex needs or more advanced requirements. The price of these packages, however, is prohibitive. Many of the extra features can be gained elsewhere as part of basic packages and although the service is good, the cost is probably higher than it needs to be and it rises steeply with the higher end packages.
If you are looking for a professional, gimmick-free and very comprehensive service from a top web host and you don’t mind paying a little extra, this might be the option for you though.
