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.

My Own Online Store!

Shopify isn't a normal hosting company. They are basically a business partner and online store portal. They do offer hosting for people who are using their services though, and if that is you, they are great. They do a good j... More ob at getting your ecommerce site up and running right away and their hosting is very stable. If you want to start an online store, Shopify is the best in Canada. Less

Avoid Bluehost Like the Plague

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

Shopify might be well known in the industry but it’s too expensive when it comes to typical web hosting. If you’re a beginner at site-building or don’t have a lot of requirements, you’ll probably want to steer clear of Shopify. BlueHost is a much cheaper, all-round service that can support its customers with all their web hosting requirements. It has VPS, dedicated servers, and other hosting services, and they all come compatible with major coding languages like PHP. Customers of BlueHost also get a great choice of database and content management systems.
