Best Free DDOS protection service in the world
karan jot,
10
I have 11 websites using their protection and most are on the free plan. Cloud flare is the best to protect against ddos attacks if you know how to add custom rules yourself, you can rate limit and add page rules so spammers ... More cannot ddos your website plus the bot fight mode tool they have is awesome!. Many people say they had bad support/late but you guys need to understand that they protect millions of websites for FREE and they take longer to reply for those reasons. The times I sent them a message they replied within 24 hours and they were helpful and professional at all times. I always recommend people cloud flare because its free to use and even the free plan will protect and stop DDOS attacks no matter how big they are. Less
Easy and productive

My experience with Bluehost and BlueSky Pro has been very easy and productive. I had a few problems but they were easily fixed. I could not have done this on my own.

I tried to cancel my membership bc I no longer have the website and due to a glitch on their website, I was charged again instead of my subscription getting canceled. They have a red ribbon with a box next to it that looks li... More ke it should have text and you have to click it in order to proceed with canceling. But when you try to proceed, you are charged! This happened twice! I tried to reach them twice via “submit a request” and no one ever gets back to me. I’ve had no choice but to pursue action via PayPal. Less
Canceled two years ago and they are still withdrawing money from my bank account

Contacted support on numerous occasions. Called, emailed (when it was working). I was told that if I did not renew, no charges would be made. They continue to charge my bank account. No method for reaching a human to help.

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.
