Questionable service and support
Robert Liroff,

Service is friendly, but overall site support is definitely mixed - not sure if the long-term price is worth it.
I am concerned that I was not alert to a feature offering me SSL layer protection for my site, the absence of wh... More ich may have steered away potential clients. I only found out today, upon calling for a break in my site's functioning today, and inquiring about such protection, that it had been offered in my plan for a while but never turned on!
A real problem in communication with your customers. It was only due to the extremely helpful support person whom I contacted today that I satisfactorily resolved the two issues troubling my site.
Less
Terrible service and cloud provider

They sneak in so many extra fees and services, and support are hopeless (literally lied about the hidden fees). They disregard GDPR law and other EU laws too, not to mention they're about 10x the cost of some other providers.

Winner: Google Cloud Platform

Michael Levanduski Expert Hosting Writer & Tester

Most people use Google on a daily basis but perhaps aren’t all too familiar with Google Cloud Platform. Though it’s great for cloud hosting, that’s all the Google Cloud Platform offers, whereas BlueHost provides a full suite of hosting solutions, including cloud. Its customers can also choose from shared hosting, VPS, and dedicated servers. BlueHost’s prices come in much cheaper than they do with the Google Cloud Platform too, and the customer support on offer is more dependable. BlueHost provides a 24/7 live chat service and the Google Cloud Platform doesn’t have live chat. This, amongst plenty of other reasons, like greater hosting options and potential, is why BlueHost is the better provider and comes out on top in this comparison.
