good cheap VPS
wild cheese,

I got the 1Euro VPS, and it runs good with good uptime and support. Some of the support tools open in Italian, but you can select English from dropdown menu. I have had to contact support only once, and got a good response (i... More n English) and problem was cleared. Less
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.

Horrible experience
Al S.,

I tried several VMs - was never able to really use them. The most annoying experience is with access to VM - the remote access is simply hell! No way to access password change and the support is catastrophic.
Overpriced, horrible service, constant downtime

Do NOT go with this service. They are part of a bundle of hosting companies which all go down at the same time, multiple times a week. The customer service is atrocious. You will spend an hour in chat with no resolution for t... More he tiniest issue.
They will charge you for migration to their servers, if you are changing hosting companies. Again, do NOT do this. There are MUCH BETTER hosting companies out there who will NOT charge you for migration. Bluehost will take a week to migrate and ask for everything under the sun to try to migrate. And then there will be issues.
Their backup system is also non-existent and problematic. SSL troubles. If you try to get a refund within the 30-day guarantee, they will dismiss you. It took me an hour and 15 minutes to get the hosting charge refunded after I left them within 30 days. And then I had to initiate a charge back on the migration fee because they kept tossing me back and forth between customer service and the migration team's email, with no resolution and no response.
Again, this company is not worth your time. Research which companies are owned by holding companies, like Bluehost, and avoid them. Go with solely owned companies that have excellent customer service.
