I'm a new Wordpress user and needed guidance on hosting and setup. The Bluehost team was knowledgeable, friendly, and helped me decide on the plan most appropriate for my needs.

The support I have received has been amazing EVERY TIME!! They really take their time to help you our to resolve issues.
Also I get a lot for my money compared to other hosting websites for the same price or they are even more expensive.

Blue Host is a journey and not a means to an end with web hosting html and word press. I am seeing the difference every day with html and css online.
IMH Shared Email Servers End Up In Spam Databases, Causing My Email to Be Rejected
Wayne Herbert,
4.0
I've been an IMH customer for 10 years and been generally satisfied with their service. But over the last six months, I have been getting increasing amounts of email rejected by yahoo, aol, mac, outlook, and others because I... More MH's shared email servers have been registered in various spam databases, including SpanHaus.

Over these last six months I have filed numerous tickets with support, seeking a solution. Support, each time I file a ticket, "rotates" the email server IP address. Things work fine for a couple of weeks, then the new IP address ends up in a spam database and I start getting rejected emails again. This last time, it was only two days after I filed the ticket that I started getting rejections.

IMH support has been no help. Their "solutions" are:
1) Keep filing tickets each time I get a kick back and they will rotate IP addresses.
2) Upgrade to a VPS package at $140 more per year and with resources I don't need.
3) Move my email to Google Gsuite.
What they haven't been able to do is tell me why they cannot get their email servers out of spam databases. I can only guess that this is because they are hosting spammers and not doing a good enough job of blocking them. Doesn't matter, I need a new ISP.

Winner: InMotion Hosting

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

Comparing InMotion Hosting and BlueHost side by side is a great way to figure out which one really has the better services. When you go down the list and see all the information available, it quickly becomes clear that InMotion is the winner of the comparison. They are ranked higher in reliability, pricing, user friendliness, support, and features. They also offer unlimited hosting packages, more disk space and RAM on VPS’s and dedicated servers, and they offer many other advantages as well. If you want the best out of these two companies, InMotion is the clear choice.
