There are thousands of hosting companies available in 2017, but why most of the bloggers including us recommending bluehost over other hosting providers. You might have noticed the real fact, that 90% of top hosting companies are belongs to a same group, called Endurance International Group.
Endurance International Group Acquired many hosting companies and they grown big in recent years. The main hosting providers including Bluehost, Hostgator, I Page and JustHost are also belong to EIG group. But why they are differ in performance and quality? Even while they belong to same company, they run from different servers and locations. The hardware and software’s used to these hosting are not same.
Let’s come back to the question. Why we are recommending Bluehost in 2017? You must know the real facts behind this recommendation. Read the reasons we listed below. We recommend you to read our other hosting articles too.
Why we Recommend Bluehost?
When we are starting a website, we need to get a hosting which provides;
- Maximum Uptime (100% or close to it)
- Best Speed
- Best Price and Plans
- Extra Benefits
According to our experience, Bluehost provides what we are looking for. Let’s look deeply into the topic.
♥ Uptime is the biggest Advantage
Many hosting companies are offering an up-time of 99.99%. Does they really providing that much? We have only one answer for this question and that answer is a big “No”. Previously we have tried A Small Orange Hosting for host this website, but there is hell lot of downtime happened while hosted with them. Bluehost is offering an up-time of 99.99%. According to the uptime test from January 2017 to March 2017, they are providing 99.98% uptime, that is very close to the up-time value they offered. That means only 0.01% deviations from the offered up time.
Since up-time is very crucial for every kind of websites, bluehost will be a good choice for people who want their website to stay online all the time.
♥ Speed doesn’t kill always.
My mom always wanted me to ride slow. But how can I make a website that runs slow? Every website owners want their website load super-fast. According to a study done by Google, websites which taking a time more than three seconds to load is less likely to attract customers. I have mentioned this before in my previous article too. So if you find this somewhere else in this blog, yes I am repeating: D
Bluehost provides a best server to its customers. While you hosted a website in bluehost, you will get an assurance on page load speed. But don’t give all responsibilities to bluehost itself. You should make sure that, you are taking precautions to make it Google friendly. We have already explained about making a website run like a Bugatti.
♥ Affordable Pricing
Bluehost has the best pricing for the best plans. Bluehost’s Shared hosting plans are best for making a medium range website with an affordable price. You will get unlimited domain registration, unlimited bandwidth and unlimited storage space for just $5.95/month.
|Note: Nothing is really unlimited in web hosting. You will get a benefit that really more than enough for your website, but not unlimited. Did you ever heard about a physical storage device that can store unlimited data? Every physical storage device has a limit. So there is no unlimited storage exist. But bluehost is trustworthy because, they will provide enough space for your website data, even it is very high.|
What about the risk of heavy traffic? You may have seen an unlimited bandwidth offer from most of the hosting providers. When they say unlimited, there is certainly a limit. A limit that your website never going to exceed.
There are 7.5 billion peoples in the world and 3.5 billion peoples have an internet connection. Unless until you are giving an option to download everyday free food through your website, you are never going to reach a 2 billion traffic per day 😀 And if it happened, I can assure you, no hosting provider can save you from crack down. Enough of blah blah, let’s look into next.
♥ Your Hosting is secured
You have to think of two kind of security. You may have secured your website, but what if a visitor visiting your website doesn’t feel secured. Bluehost is providing SSL certificate at a cheap price along with their hosting plan. If you are picking a higher end hosting plan, SSL certificate will be given as an extra benefit by bluehost.
Other than that, Bluehost servers are highly secured by their layered security system. You don’t need to worry much about website security once you hosted with bluehost. If you are a wordpress user, you can enhance security by adding some plugins.
♥ Bluehost is WordPress Friendly
Bluehost is a hosting which can fulfill all requirements of a wordpress website. Who said this? Not me, WordPress itself suggest bluehost for better performance. You can see it in WordPress.org website. That makes bluehost more trustable than other hosting providers. Bluehost is most effective web hosting, which can achieve maximum benefits of search engine optimization and wordpress optimization by some simple steps. Now you may have confusion about which plan to choose. We prefer “Plus” shared hosting plan for better performance of WordPress websites.
♦ There are some negatives too…
We will never say, bluehost is perfect. Even when it is on the top ten lists, bluehost also have a major negative that putting a black mark on it. Bluehost is not good when it comes to support. They are not good at all. A much delayed, non-technical support is making its customers un-happy. Giving best technical features are not enough for a good hosting. Bluehost should concentrate on its support to make it speedy and friendly.
