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.

Amazing team!

An incredible service we received from Dan and his team at HB Hosting. The website they built us has superseded all of our wishes and we could not be happier with the service and pricing we received.

Becareful when terminating subscription
Vivien L,
3.6
I gave Bluehost more than the required period to terminate my service. However when my annual subscription was due to be renewed, they automatically deducted the annual subscription fee from my account. I contacted them and t... More hey agreed to refund the fee. The explanation given was that the product wasn't terminated. Then the next day, an annual subscription fee (for another amount) got deducted again!! When I asked what happened, the explanation given was that the subscription was "undone", not terminated. I was furious. The staff said they will refund (again), terminate my product this time and retire my bank account details so it won't be used anymore.
I was also charged foreign currency transaction fee by my bank for each time they deducted their fee. I asked Bluehost to also refund me the foreign currency fee I incurred but they didn't agree to. I'm very unhappy with them.
So be very careful when terminating your subscription.
