Bluehost Website Hosting Service ReviewGo To Site
Founded in the year 2003, Bluehost has grown over the years to become one of the much-sought-after website hosting service provider, especially for the blog and small business websites. In fact, Bluehost hosts over 2 million websites across the world. In this review, we are going to see if the hosting service is just overrated or is worth the popularity.
Diverse hosting services
Bluehost has something for everyone as far as website hosting services are concerned. Whether you want managed WordPress, Virtual Private Server(VPS), dedicated server or cloud-based hosting, Bluehost has you covered. The services come at fairly pocket-friendly prices ranging from $2.75 (standard) to $199.99 (dedicated) per month. Depending on your budget and hosting needs, you can get a very affordable hosting plan with Bluehost.
Website hosting services are vulnerable to issues like hardware failures and DDoS attacks and this could result in a temporary shutdown of the servers, making them unable to deliver to the hosted websites. However, some hosting services are stronger than others, hence higher resistance to these issues and downtimes.
When it comes to Bluehost, it has strong serves, hence a great uptime of 99.98 percent (in 2019). That means that the cumulative period that the service is likely to be unavailable to deliver to your website in one year (about 8,760 hours) is less than two hours. This rate is great considering that there’s not even a single hosting service that has ever managed to get an annual average of 100%.
Bluehost offers a minimum hosing storage space of 50GB, with some of its plans coming with unlimited storage space. If you have a simple WordPress website with just words and images, a 50GB storage space will be just fine for the site. In case your storage needs are more, then it’s advisable you choose a plan with unlimited storage space. The latter is a huge plus for Bluehost users.
Page loading speed is a very important factor to consider when choosing a hosting service provider because internet users don’t have patience for slowly loading website pages. Besides, search engines such as Google give websites with high page loading speed priority in their ranking on result pages.
We’ve been using Bluehost’s hosting services for a couple of years and honestly speaking, there was a time that their page loading speeds were pathetic, especially in 2016. However, the speed improved tremendously in 2017 and has been commendable since then. The speed tests that we recently conducted reveal that websites using Bluehost’s hosting services take an average time of 1.24 seconds to load. The load time is satisfactory, also considering that it applies to many different locations and website themes.
