Easy and productive
Marsha Hankins,

My experience with Bluehost and BlueSky Pro has been very easy and productive. I had a few problems but they were easily fixed. I could not have done this on my own.
5 stars. Well deserved.

Their prices are low and the performance is great. Technical support responds fast and actually cares. 5 stars. Well deserved company they are. I'm glad to be their client.

I know this because I call them nearly every day because that is the only way to get anything done. The user portal is WIDLY inconsistent. Sometimes buttons work, sometimes they don't. Sometimes they just completely disappear... More for a while.
I have been with them for over 10 years and they have been going downhill but as of a few months ago it's just been TERRIBLE. I hate that I just renewed with them, I wish I hadnt't

False advertising and customer harassment
Dan Miller,
2.0
I've used to praise these guys for many years, but lately everything went sideways. From falsely advertising unlimited disk space (in actually limited to 100 GB) to harassing clients over a 50 MB file and suspending their acc... More ounts. You read it right, if you have a file that is over 50 MB they could automatically suspend your account without notice. Happened a couple of times, and it was a log file that was part of the WordPress and WooCommerce.
Terrible support, barely write in English. Servers go down pretty often without explanation, by the time they respond the "website is live, we don't see an issues".
Their latest UI changes are terrible and they use customers to test their unfinished products, such as NOC, they recommend using NOC over cPanel, while it has tons of bugs and doesn't have basic functionality of a cPanel.
Clients sometimes got banned from their own website due to some "whitelist issues".
I can go on and on about other issues.
I have been understanding for a very good while, but their latest harassment and threats of suspending my account because of having a temporary surge of 150GB is simply unacceptable.
They can easily host 150GB of data, as I've been doing it for 3 years already, sometimes the websites I develop go over 100 GB, but all of a sudden they have a hostile attitude towards their loyal users and affiliates and choose to harass them and suspend accounts.
In 2018 you were great. In 2022 you are no more.
Goodbye PlanetHoster.
