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.

Good price

It's very good, I was here before many things were translated to English. I would say maybe in the future offer more automatic services, so you do not need to go through to the support team so often. Thank you for the great service.

Becareful when terminating subscription
Vivien L,

I gave Bluehost more than the required period to terminate my service. However when my annual subscription was due to be renewed, they automatically deducted the annual subscription fee from my account. I contacted them and t... More hey agreed to refund the fee. The explanation given was that the product wasn't terminated. Then the next day, an annual subscription fee (for another amount) got deducted again!! When I asked what happened, the explanation given was that the subscription was "undone", not terminated. I was furious. The staff said they will refund (again), terminate my product this time and retire my bank account details so it won't be used anymore.
I was also charged foreign currency transaction fee by my bank for each time they deducted their fee. I asked Bluehost to also refund me the foreign currency fee I incurred but they didn't agree to. I'm very unhappy with them.
So be very careful when terminating your subscription.

This site came to my email asking for a review, so figured i'd comply. I have been using Vinahost for about 4 years. In all it works when it works and no real issues. I have found the biggest problems are payments, the compan... More y doesn't seem to have an accountant or are just confused on what "Payment" means. Many times we have had our site shut down and costed us large sums of money to get an email back from Vinahost saying "Sorry for the mistake we see your payment" Yet do nothing to prevent it from happening again *Happened 3 times* nor comp us for the proven lost wages we had for down time.
In all its what it is, and sadly no other options if your using .vn extensions
Goods -
Site is 90% of the time up
FTP update refresh is 5 minutes or less
Prices are good
Bads -
Horrible customer service
They don't understand that shutting down business sites cost money and they expect you to accept it when they are at fault
Their main office, in HCMC they seem very confused and most don't know the product they selling
