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.

They will steal your money after you cancel... and even try to steal your password!
Jullian Hartford-Smith,

I cancelled my Bluehost account in 2018, as the platform is unstable and glitchy. But alas, I was charged for the account in 2019... and 2020... and 2021. Each year I have contacted Bluehost to make sure my account is cancell... More ed, and ask for a refund of the unauthorised charges. Each year they have refused to refund.
Finally today I managed to get Bluehost to refund the 2021 charge - after 3 hours talking with their staff. They refused to refund the 2019 and 2020 charges, even though I gave them the reference number showing I cancelled in 2018.
So they still owe me approx. AU$450!
To process the 2021 refund the staff member said she needed the last four characters of my password, sent to her via chat. That is an absolute 'no-no' in IT! How dodgy is this company? Even dodgier than it appears on the surface I suspect.

worst support ever
John Gen,
3.2
I was simply asking some question about their service when they start saying that I was not interested in their services but just interviewing them.
So I reply that I was probably a future client and just wanted to know more ... More about their product since I wanted to buy one and their final reply was
"and we have the right to deny you.
so good luck with your search."
What type of support is that??
