CloudFlare and BlueHost are both big names when it comes to cloud hosting, but only one of them offers a wide choice of hosting solutions. BlueHost provides everything from dedicated servers to VPS and though CloudFare is a favorite amongst site owners, BlueHost provides better features and for a fraction of the money. It also comes with a 24/7 support team that’s available over live chat, the phone, and email, unlike CloudFare, and it supports most languages with hosting like PHP, Java, and Python. BlueHost is the only one of the two that’s compatible with major content management systems.
