If anyone ever wants to know the truth and facts about AWS Customer Supports Vs GoDaddy, Hostway, Hosting Source, Google, Apple READ THIS:
7 years now dealing with AWS I cannot explain how many times they have gone beyond wha... More t their rules and Regs and policies are to HELP, SUPPORT and maintain whatever it takes for AWS to serve and keep us as a client.
They are the NUMBER 1 Company and they already WON Best Customer Support globally as far as I am concerned

Bluehost is one of the most popular web hosting

Bluehost is one of the most popular web hosting companies in the world, especially among people launching their first site.
They offer great rates, and a beginner-facing platform that makes every aspect of running a website e... More asy.
Most of the time Bluehost will walk you through a task the first time, like setting up a blog or email account on your site.
If you get stuck or have a problem, they have 24/7 support by phone or live chat. They list their support number and live chat options right on their site, so you can reach out for help within two clicks.

Avoid Bluehost Like the Plague

I made the mistake of signing up for three years of Bluehost hosting at their high renewal rates. Just before the first year ended the Bluehost server went down for TWO WEEKS. I had no option but to switch to a different host... More ing company. Because it was after the 30 day return period, Bluehost kept SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS of my money. Less

Winner: Bluehost

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

Amazon Web Services and BlueHost both have a lot of nice features and a few drawbacks. They are both rated quite well by their users, and they each have a nice reliable hosting environment. Looking at the ratings from their actual users, BlueHost performs better on pricing and user friendliness. You can also get shared and VPS hosting from BlueHost, which aren’t available from Amazon. These added services and great reputation helped us to name BlueHost as the winner of this comparison.
