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.

TERRIBLE HOST PROVIDER
Seo web analyst,
4.4
This company is the worst host provider out there if you are looking for reliable they are worst and support is also terrible.
They have been making some on forgivable errors like over 2 years that have been with them but the... More worst happened when they moved from OVH (even during this period they freezed all our files and decided to hold all of us to ransom) I lost all my clients as this took over a month for them to migrate all of us to another partner (singlehop)
I wish I had moved then but they bait me with an exclusive offer and a vip discount (which is no longer in place, guess they have change management).
But of recent this terrible company support as been something to laugh at...for over a month or so, I have not been able to receive any new signup on my site ...I thought it was traffic but that was doing fine.
It was when I was actually developing a new page that needed signup that I got to know that this people totally FORGOT to setup my PHPMAIL system when they had the system upgraded or something has the phpmail was not configured or set up on the server.
I was furious! as if that was not enough. the following week I noticed my traffic has turmoiled and I did research and figure it was my same server AGAIN! this issue was my blogging platform it was no longer working for subdomain generation, it works like tumblr and auto generates new subdomains everytime new user register on the site, but all of a sudden I cannot access all published post and instead of them to review the issue they were being LAZY to provide support to a critical incidence.
The support told me to go and create a subdomain and point it to the file? it was working 3 days ago and I didn't have to create a subdomain, it does that by itself and point it to post published by the blogging software.
This is the 2nd time this incident will happen to me and they are not professionals to any level, serious my experience is more like am begging them to look into issues as they are highly reluctant to provide support for server related issues (if you can proof it) they rather refer you to their $250 support fee (if you are on a unmanaged host package)
They are not dependable, have already seen this and God help me when am financially capable I will move away from this terrible host provider .
If you check the images below you see am always sending one support issue or the other, so unless you are always monitoring your site like every day, then go for this terrible host as they are more like employee that need 100% supervision and that tells you the level of competence or reliability they are.
