Bluehost is one of the most popular web hosting
Gagan Dias,

Bluehost is one of the most popular web hosting companies in the world, especially among people launching their first site.
They offer great rates, and a beginner-facing platform that makes every aspect of running a website e... More asy.
Most of the time Bluehost will walk you through a task the first time, like setting up a blog or email account on your site.
If you get stuck or have a problem, they have 24/7 support by phone or live chat. They list their support number and live chat options right on their site, so you can reach out for help within two clicks.

A hidden Gem but underrated I belive

I am using the WordPress plan of Mochahost. It's superb in performance and I can host unlimited websites. The only problem that I faced often was related to a resource limit problem. Except for this, Mochahost is fast, reliab... More le, and comes with many exclusive features. Thanks to Mochahost never downtime options. Less

Overpriced, horrible service, constant downtime

Do NOT go with this service. They are part of a bundle of hosting companies which all go down at the same time, multiple times a week. The customer service is atrocious. You will spend an hour in chat with no resolution for t... More he tiniest issue.
They will charge you for migration to their servers, if you are changing hosting companies. Again, do NOT do this. There are MUCH BETTER hosting companies out there who will NOT charge you for migration. Bluehost will take a week to migrate and ask for everything under the sun to try to migrate. And then there will be issues.
Their backup system is also non-existent and problematic. SSL troubles. If you try to get a refund within the 30-day guarantee, they will dismiss you. It took me an hour and 15 minutes to get the hosting charge refunded after I left them within 30 days. And then I had to initiate a charge back on the migration fee because they kept tossing me back and forth between customer service and the migration team's email, with no resolution and no response.
Again, this company is not worth your time. Research which companies are owned by holding companies, like Bluehost, and avoid them. Go with solely owned companies that have excellent customer service.

They don't do back-up, they don't take responsability for lost data
Alex Patrut,

We have a total disk usage of 7GB and 437042 Inode. Even if the plan comes with "unlimited" storage, Mochahost considers my disk usage too much to do back-ups. Sadly I discovered that there are no back-ups only when I needed ... More to restore. BTW, the restore was needed because of a bug too with MySQL. The worst part is that I contacted them, offered them to pay them support hours because I was desperate, I asked them to access the back-end and locate the old data that was detached from MySQL. They have a strong policy not to access shared servers from the back-end so they won't help you with any backend support, not even if you pay them.
So here is the summary of why they SUCK big time
[] You don't get backend technical support, not even if you pay them
[] You don't get any guarantee that your data is saved
[] They are not responsible for any data loss, even if they delete it on purpose
[] You won't get any backups because shortly they will consider your usage too much even if in reality 7GB is not that much.
[] They don't have any disaster recovery protection at the server level.
They might say they do everything you want to hear until you need it...
