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.

Great hosting provider.

Good customer service. HosterPlan has always answered our questions. The ease of adding SSL to our sites was a big factor in our choice to use their platform.

Becareful when terminating subscription
Vivien L,

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.

Where do I start? What a misuse of a day. To begin with, they put me on a LA worker, not a Washington DC worker as I requested. Reaction times were terrible, both website pages and backing. What's more, at that point, I disco... More ver there is a 8000 thing limit when vi
ewing alist by ftp. All things considered, I have more than 12000 pictures, so I was unable to see every one of them by ftp (which is my prefered decision to erase/rename them). Their answer? Really awful, it is in our terms and conditions, it is for security. Their answer? Overhaul!!! Obviously. Along these lines, when I asked how it was terrible security for the arrangement I purchased however by one way or another not for their superior arrangement, I got no reaction.
I think about this truly sharp practice and, furthermore, simply Google the issues they have encountered on their LA workers. What a joke, a sham, a misuse of a day.
