Bluehost is one of the most popular web hosting
Gagan Dias,
8.4
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.

Арендую дедик для себя, часто появляются клевые линейки. За все время проблем не было вообще, аптайм согласно договору. Отличная цена за качественно предоставляемые услуги.

Avoid Bluehost Like the Plague
Arthur Rudick,
2.0
I made the mistake of signing up for three years of Bluehost hosting at their high renewal rates. Just before the first year ended the Bluehost server went down for TWO WEEKS. I had no option but to switch to a different host... More ing company. Because it was after the 30 day return period, Bluehost kept SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS of my money. Less
Horrible Filipino Customer Service
Jonathan Smith,
4.8
You'll wait half an hour for a live person, and it's always a filipina. The audio quality with customer service will be poor. They cannot understand American English. Their sparse website after you log into your account is on... More ly half functional; therefore, you must deal with the filipino customer service.
Why was my credit card charged?
Answer: "because you cannot do AutoPay."
WTF? I'm not asking about AutoPay.
Can I get receipts for the payments that I've already made?
Answer: "we can only give you a confirmation number."
WTF. I need some kind of document for tax deduction purposes. Why can't your system just email an acknowledgement each time my credit card gets charged? I just need date, amount, my name, your company name, service provided.
Answer: [momentary silence] "what is your question again? we only provide prepaid service so there's no tax."
Are you, Selectel, a Philippines-only company? Why can't you understand common record keeping in standard business practice?
Answer: "no, we're in Fremont, Nebraska [shameless lie] but your special request for receipt will be presented to my higher management for consideration."
Nobody else has ever asked for a receipt before?
Answer: [momentary silence] "I'm sorry, can you repeat the question?"
