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.

Stay away, they (or he) are amateurs

Do NOT waste your time and money.
As it has been stated previously, they "customer support" is just there for the sake of being there and not helping at all.
This host was recommended to me as it had some features like sqlser... More v and pdo that rarely any webhost provides. I got a 1-year plan just so they would remove the key features I decided to host with them without any prior notice. When I confronted them about it, all I got was "Yeah, sorry. We do not do sqlserv and pdo anymore". No refund, no compensation.
As this is a joke of a hosting service, I transfered my domain over to namecheap to be done with them and let my remaining time run out. It was all well until they automatically charged me a renewal I did not want. I messaged them within the same day explaining my situation and that I do not wish to continue using their service and they simply closed my ticket with 15 minutes without replying to it.
I only got a reply after I sent another message to the closed ticket and all I got was they do not do refunds. Fair enough.
However, they also charged me for the domain that I had already transfered over to namecheap, so I do not exactly where that fee comes from. I paid the domain upfront the first year and I transfered and paid for an extension with the new register before it expired.
They won't refund me a charge for a service they do not provide and are ignoring my tickets.
Don't bother, you might as well find some local guy that hosts on machines in his basement and still get better customer support and value/money.
It is a disgrace they got a 2/10 for me for this review when they should have gotten 0/10.
