Great Responsive Support with a System that continues to Improve
Henry A Castillo,

I was someone who wanted the most affordable option, and with Bluehost I found a solution. I have used Bluehost for years, and one thing that was always of quality was their support.
Their system was not the most user friend... More ly at the beginning, but it has since made huge strides.
Reviewing my server, installing WordPress, accessing my backups; are all easy to do now with little to no struggle.
I'm so impressed with their commitments to improving their services and products that I'm here writing this review.

They will steal your money after you cancel... and even try to steal your password!
Jullian Hartford-Smith,

I cancelled my Bluehost account in 2018, as the platform is unstable and glitchy. But alas, I was charged for the account in 2019... and 2020... and 2021. Each year I have contacted Bluehost to make sure my account is cancell... More ed, and ask for a refund of the unauthorised charges. Each year they have refused to refund.
Finally today I managed to get Bluehost to refund the 2021 charge - after 3 hours talking with their staff. They refused to refund the 2019 and 2020 charges, even though I gave them the reference number showing I cancelled in 2018.
So they still owe me approx. AU$450!
To process the 2021 refund the staff member said she needed the last four characters of my password, sent to her via chat. That is an absolute 'no-no' in IT! How dodgy is this company? Even dodgier than it appears on the surface I suspect.

Dear all ,take your 30min to read all my message here and understand it, please!
If you looking hosting server if you search ALCHosting.net then you better RUN!RUN!RUN! Important things must REPEATED 3 TIMES!
I'm lazy to talk... More so much and explain so much,but to avoid next VICTIMS I must shared it out everything and you MUST attention it!
Why before Im choosing them ? Because of those positive reviews,truly disappointed why they must SCAM this way to steal the money ?
Ive already sending those info to anti fraud department with different country!
This way to avoid next VICTIMS,it's really terrible even MORE horrible!!!
ALChosting will help you much and much as possible when you first place order and payment issue.Once they received your money,then they will start clear all the ticket and close your ac without informed or delay chat or act like
really send you remote details or server details.
Dont believe it ? Okay, lets go we have a look on those screenshot below. Oh before that, I want mentioned they might think they are smart enough,but actually NOT SMART enough and they're IDIOT !
Because Ive all the screenshot and the proof before they removed and closed evrything from my side.While I chatting with them and I found that when end conversation at livechat, send chat conversation to email address
is not work, so I start screenshot every single chat when communicate with them !
So many many screenshot from my end but I just get some listed here >>> Enjoys ~
First place order and Payment Done

Tech support:Jessa Mae
FYI ,currently info stated on their site, may change anytime from their end , this is current https://pasteboard.co/K45zxR4.png
Also their name can change different later on ,dont be suprised.
If you keep monitor their site you will know their live chat was amazing.Example, now your IP country from Singapore you still can chat them. But if they found you the same IP then they will block you instantly.
But few hours later, you try using diffrent country IP, the live chat will prompt out again.Then you can using different name or email to chat them if you are really free or try get back your funds!
